First of all, is there an easier way of adding new item builds? Right now I find it troublesome to search the items through name in the item builds.

How do i use the word and effect searchers?

Is there a way to change the format of the items to something similar to dota2's build creator?

The items are in alphabetical order. At least that's how I was looking for them when I made my stuff. Can't really help you at the second question. And the third, I don't think there is a way.

A guide by masaaki14! Nice :)

I assume you know by now the ancient Dr. D's guide on formatting, so I will skip it, but this here is really helpfull too: http://www.dotafire.com/dota-2/guide/guide-to-making-a-guide-improving-the-overall-quality-3867

I'm still terrible at the coding of the guides and would like some help myself sometimes xD

Oh i forgot to mention, if there is anyone who wants to make guides and face problems, this is a place you can ask questions too. Help yourself and help other aspiring guide makers at the same time

Is there any way to increase my colum width?
Mine seems to be so much smaller than others do have in their guides
