New Features on the Global Voices site

You may have noticed that we've made a few small changes to the Global Voices side – we hope they help you use the site more effectively (and, in one case, we hope that they'll encourage you to help us out as well.)

There's now a search box on the top left of each page of the site. When you enter terms into the search box, you'll get posts and pages on the Global Voices site that cointain that term. Because these posts appear in the right side of the screen, where our posts normally appear, you may think you're not getting results. You are. Really. We promise. If everything works, the term you were searching for will be highlighted in those pages as well.

(The early feedback we've gotten suggests that the search system we've implemented is a little confusing. If too many people find the new search confusing, we'll replace it with a search that uses Google's site search tools.)

You can now subscribe to Global Voices and receive all our posts via email. We hope this will be helpful for people who want to keep up-to-date with Global Voices but don't use an RSS aggregator. Head to our email sign up page, enter your email address and we'll send you a confirmation email. Click on the link in the email we send you, and you'll be added to the mailing list. To unsubscribe, just visit the subscribe page, enter your email address and select the “unsubscribe” button.

Finally, we've added a form where you can let us know about breaking stories you think we should include in the daily blog roundup and blogs you'd like to see added to the Bridge Blog Index. Of course, you're still welcome to send us email with suggestions, or add blogs directly to the Bridge Blog Index.

We'll keep tweaking and tuning the site so that it works as smoothly as possible. If you've got any suggestions for features we should try to add, let us know, preferably in the comments on this post.
