New look, same search functionality
The latest update to Thorn Tree search will give users the ability to find a specific country/interest forum or search topics/posts for specific keywords in the same place. This project was based on specific requests from the community, we appreciate your patience while we worked to take a small step towards better forum searching.
Never fear, the ability to scan through a list branches or forums still exists but typing the destination in the search box will be the fastest way to navigate in Thorn Tree moving forward.
Pro tip: Are you visiting a specific country? Consider yourself to be an expert on a country (or countries) or an activity? Feel free to subscribe to your favorite forum once you've located it for updates and easier navigation.
For those who miss the old Thorn Tree intro text, we created an article in our help section which discusses Thorn Tree's origin. The Gall-Peters projection map is still here as well, but we're going to move it further down the page so that travelers view recent forum activity sooner in the visit.
