How To Change Your Background Color and Customize Presearch
Presearch is excited to announce that you can now customize your Presearch background color and that settings are now more accessible.
GETTING INTO YOUR ACCOUNT SETTINGS
We’ve made it easier to access your Presearch settings with the new Settings Icon found directly under the search field on your homepage.
The pop-up window now has to most commonly used options in an easy-to-access screen, so you no longer have to dig for access.
SETTINGS & COLORS
The #1 customization request we’ve had from the community is to be able to change the background color. Since we launched our refreshed homepage a couple of months ago and went to a brighter blue, many have found it to be a little too bright and have requested to change it.
With today’s update, now you can change the background color of your Presearch home screen to any #hex value you want. :D
Go ahead, try it. We’ll wait.
Show us your preferred Presearch background color by sharing a screenshot in our Presearch Community Telegram channel. We can’t wait to see your favorites!
HOMEPAGE ICON SIZE
To enhance accessibility as well as accommodating users who would like to have a large number of search providers as their default search options, we have added the ability to customize homepage icon sizes.
PRO TIP: As you are making changes to your preferred settings, make sure you are clicking the orange save button at the bottom of your screen.
OPEN IN NEW TAB
Many of you have asked to be able to open your search results in a new tab to make searching faster and more convenient. You can do that by checking the box next to the following option and hitting the ‘Save’ button below.
HOMEPAGE CRYPTO LINKS
When Presearch first launched, we included a number of links to some popular crypto resources as seen below the search field in this screen shot:
The feature is no longer the default set up to keep the homepage a little cleaner and make way for new content, but if you want to add it to your Presearch, you can do so under the settings section by checking the box indicated in the screen shot below and clicking ‘Save’.
The very last option on the “Settings” page is the ability to turn the Autocomplete function on and off.
When the autocomplete feature is enabled, you will receive suggestions as you start typing your search query.
This is the essence of what makes Presearch great. If you take nothing else from this blog post, please make sure you get to know this feature!
When you click on Homepage Providers on the left-hand menu you are shown your current home page providers (the icons in a row at the top of your screen), as well as a list of all available search providers.
Click on any of your current search provider icons to remove it from your list.
Click on any provider to add them to your current provider list
You can also search for your preferred provider by name, or by category.
Change your default search provider by dragging the icon of your choosing all the way to the left.
Getting to know how to make your way around the Settings menu, changing your homepage providers, and customizing your homepage background color gives you a fantastic Presearch user experience.
Once in the Settings Menu, you can then access a range of different settings, including Update Profile which allows you to change your display name and enter any additional information you care to share. This information is not used or shared and is purely optional. You also have the ability to save your preferred Ether Wallet to use when withdrawing PRE tokens to the Blockchain. Again, all of this information on this page is optional. Only enter it if you wish.
There are other parts of the Settings menu that we will cover later, but for now, we encourage you to poke around and get to know your Presearch account!
UPDATE: COIN FLIP
One last point to note — we have received your feedback on the coin flip (more specifically, the speed of the coin flip).
The coin flip was integrated into the Presearch experience to pave the way for the upcoming Ad Platform, which will go live shortly.
Some of you found that the speed of the coin flip was slowing down the searching and was detrimental to your user experience.
We have adjusted the speed of the PRE token coin flip, so you can search without delay.
As always, we’d love to hear your thoughts and feedback on the features we’ve released — what is your favorite part? Do you have suggestions for improvement? Easily send your comments directly to the team using the feedback link on Presearch.org
