Okay, I signed up, edited which sites I want results from, and added a bunch of keywords... but I can't see my list of all saved keyword searches. What am I doing wrong? And now with saved searches, what happens next? Email updates with these saved searches?

At any rate, great idea for a site!

Go to Settings, click the Favorites button, enter your keywords, and click Update Your Options at the bottom.

Then, go to the Favorites pages (in the top toolbar). Click Check Now. Wait for the search to complete. Then, start tracking or discarding as you like! (thumbsu

Are you sure you are signed in? It should say Log Out in the upper right if you are logged in correctly.

When you click Setting, you should see three buttons:

Click Favorites (to the right of Sources), enter the keywords below, and click Update Your Options below that.

If that doesn't work, try to clear your cache and re-launch your browser. Then log back in and try again.

Or try a different browser. Firefox and Chrome are probably your best bets.

Let me know if that helps!

Tried clearing and relaunching, didnt work unfortunately.

Tried Firefox but it warns me when I'm about to log in that "this connection is not secure"

Do you have any plugins like ScriptBlock (or similar) running that may be interfering with the site?

CAT is awesome but the Favorites page seems very unresponsive in Chrome. It keeps asking me to Kill or Wait on the page.

If you have a large number of keywords, it might be returning too many results. Try lowering the number of keywords temporarily. Then bulk discard the results. Add more keywords and then go back to the Favorites page. Bulk discard again if you have to.

On the Favorites page, you can also use the time or Specific filters to lower the results list.

When your keywords are added, don't forget to click on "update your options" at the bottom of the page. 
If it still does not work, send me a message (with the pseudo you used on CAT) and we'll look at your problem.

For now CAT is hosted on a quite small (and cheap) server and checking favorites on a large number of keywords for the first time may be really resource consuming. You might try first by unselecting the four eBay sources (auctions and BIN / Europe and US), bulk discard  non relevant items, then reselect eBay and do it again.
If it still does not work, send me a message.

Hmm, before I created an account and did a search for "Allred", my site wasn't coming back...once I signed in, then I got results.

You're right: when you're not connected, searches are restricted to ~ 30 websites, to not overload my server. I'll see later how it behaves, if I have to pay for a bigger server, and if I can remove this restriction.

This looks like a great tool...congrats on making it happen.

I did run into a little snag, when I use "Search for keywords" I typed in "Kirby" (no parentheses )  I then used the "Exclude keywords" field and added "Rip".

When the search was done I was still seeing Rip Kirby pieces and the word "Rip" in the Exclude keywords field was automatically replaced by "Kirby". So it changed to looking for "Kirby" and excluding "Kirby" (but still gave me all Kirby related artwork)

Amazing site...... ! @NicoV could you add my friends wonderful site moregreatart.com also please?

Done!  (but I removed their art from the "recently listed" page to not overload it)

That's marvellous @NicoV, well done. Just spent a few minutes checking out Ross Andru Spideys and found a few sites I'd not seen before. Great stuff. Good luck with it (thumbsu

Incredible. Great job Nico. I expect sales volume for a lot of little guys to spike this week. I've already made a purchase ;)

Was using the site last nite and stumbled upon a page I had wanted for along time, but had no idea it was available, many thanks !

I *LOVE* to read that. That's exactly what I want to do with ComicArtTracker, helping collectors to find stuff they love and discover new stuff / websites they never heard about before. And if I can also help american collectors to discover european art and vice-versa it's even better!

Should be fixed. FYI, you can also directly type in  kirby -rip   in the "search for keywords" field.
