    I think Wix does a pretty good job offering 3rd party apps (even the premium fees are reasonable compared to other services out there) but the search apps being offered are unusable & IMO are not good for Wix or anyone else - they're worse than not having a search box at all. The Back& List Creator app looked perfect for my needs but it won't allow import of an Excel data file as it claims. It doesn't work at all.  I tried to phone the app company (on their US phone number) and got some indistinguishable foreign language on a recording. I also emailed and sent a message through their website contact form but have never heard back from anyone. Makes me wonder if it's even a legitimate business. For its own sake and ours, Wix needs to make sure these apps work or don't allow them to offer their services to Wix customers. Even though Wix has a disclaimer it still reflects poorly on them and I don't think these substandard app businesses deserve the product placement.

      Hi fanflair,

      Thanks for contacting us regarding this issue. 

      We are testing every app we add to the Wix App Market and we make sure they give proper support. 

      I have forwarded this case to the relevant product manager to contact them and see why they are not helping our users.

      Please let me apologize for the inconvenience.

      Thanks, Nicole,

    That's a load of ******** as they have told us on many occasions that they have no intention of doing one themselves, apart from 3rd party user tools that don't work properly!

    If it is on their roadmap & in priority then we would have had one back last year.

    You will still be reading these requests next year & the year later.

    You should all move on to a company that respects their customers wishes & do waht they promise!

      Hi Matjones,

      First, please let me apologize for the inconvenience that is made.

      We are working as fast as we can to add the features requested by our users. Some features take more development than others and we are also working based on priority (also set by our users).

      The search box feature is a very big and delicate one as it can interrupt with other features. This is why it takes longer than expected. 

      As we are aware of the demand, we have added some external apps in the mean time.

      We apologize again for the inconvenience and we will update this thread as soon as we have news.

      Thanks, Nicole,

    Vote for a Search Box

    Preferably the ability to import a database where individual fields could be searched on the desktop & mobile versions. This would help the transition to the mobile design where scrolling through long lists is not practical.
