v1.0.1 - Cleaning up the search

Updated: Jun 3, 2013 Short URL: gonj.me/510ruy
After reviewing the overall usability of the search (for both Calendar listing and location listings), we found there was room for improvement.

First, the form itself was not very intuitive. What do you click to change the results? Can you click more then one thing? Well we tried to address this with some basic text across the top. We also changed the colors around a bit to group section (like location changes or amenities) together.

Next, we addressed something that annoyed us for a while. When you "Changed your location", the page would refresh. But when you selected "Biking", you still had to click the Submit button at the bottom of the page. But now, no matter if you change the location, or select "Camping", you always have to click the submit button at the bottom of the form.

Lastly, we changed the colors of the "Search Criteria:" section. We feel it just looks nicer, making it easier to see what you searched for.

The next main change on this page will deal with updating how each location listing is displayed. We are going to add a mention of a town (so you can easily see Allaire is in Farmingdale, NJ), easier ways to share the listing, and potentially some other magic :)
