ImanGM saidIf the test goes well, it’s highly likely we’d apply this to the signed-in home page too, but that’ll require a lot more fiddling with the signed-in layout (which is two-column at the top), so we excluded it from this initial test.
Great improvement! Thank you. What about logged in users? Is this only for new visitors?
Hi folks, just a quick note that we’ll be running a series of AB tests on the home page over the coming weeks to help shape our plans for the home page.
The first of these just went live, simply testing the idea that we can encourage more searches from the home page by including a larger search box. It’s limited to the signed-out version of the home page for now.
For those that are curious but can only see the old design, here’s a screenshot:
These are not final designs. There’s no shortage of great ideas for the home page, and we’d like to see quite a few of them make it into the next version. These tests help us prioritize our efforts and better understand the impact of each idea.
Just checking whether anybody has taken a look?

Yep, rather important Ben pushed out some fixes and improvements late last week (Thursday morning Melbourne time). If you’re still seeing issues (it sounds like you are), we’ll keep on it.
