My name is Phillip Davies; I'm the new IndieCommerce Director at ABA. I will be sending you a new issue of IndieCommunication every other Wednesday, so keep an eye out for it.


Where Do Your Web Site Visitors Come From?

Where do you think most of the visitors to your web site come from? We’ve got a quick one-question anonymous survey for you. We’ll post the results in the next IndieCommunications and discuss them in more detail. See:


Upcoming Webinars

Starting the week of Feb/15 webinars will now be held on Tuesdays 2-3PM, Eastern, and repeated on Thursday 11AM to 12PM, Eastern. For more information on upcoming IndieCommerce Webinars, please visit:


“Advanced Search” link made optional
When we added the 'Advanced Search' link to the search block, it was brought to our attention that for some of you the additional link did not fit well in your site theme.

We are happy to announce that we have added an option in the ‘Search’ blocks that allows you to remove the 'Advanced Search' link. This setting can be accessed from the block configuration page: Structure -> Blocks and selecting 'Configure' for one of the two available 'Search Form' blocks. When the checkmark is removed from "Show Advanced Search Link?", the link will be removed from both search blocks on your site.

You may add a separate link in another block or in a menu on your site, leading visitors to 'Advanced Search', by using the url path:search/advanced_search . If you have any questions about this feature, please email us at:

I Would Like To Hear From You
One of the most important aspects of my job is to work with you to develop features and services for IndieCommerce that will improve the online shopping experience for both you and your customers. I also want to use this newsletter as a way for us to have those conversations and share information with ABA members. So please don't hesitate to contact me with your comments and suggestions at: I look forward to hearing from you.

Thanks for reading. Feel free to email us with any thoughts, questions, or suggestions.
