    Hi Folks,

    I love FPF and was happy to donate. Now, a comment/question:

    On any given week I see a recommendation or expression of gratitude about a local service provider — electrician, plumber, house cleaner, etc. Often, a couple days later someone else will post asking for a recommendation for the exact type of service recently mentioned – electrician, plumber, house cleaner, etc. Is there a way that FPF can capture recommendations and preserve them in a searachable database, ideally with the number of recommendations each had received? I get there is value in the direct interacction between requestors and recommenders, but seems like it would be useful to have the recommendations preserved. Thanks for considering and thanks for the Forum!

    Thank you, Paul! Indeed… great idea. Check out three existing features that provide what you’re talking about…

    FPF Posting Archive: Log into your FPF account at https://FrontPorchForum.com and click “Forum” and browse past issues.

    FPF Directory: Go to https://frontporchforum.com/directory and browse from among 12,000 VT small businesses that have created listings in our Directory (recommendations will be appended to listings). You can also click a button on any listing to add a recommendation.

    FPF Search: On the FPF website or mobile app, use the Search feature to look for Forum postings or Directory listings related to your issue.

    Hope that helps!
