Well finally the filter settings in customise at the top right of the page take effect. Yesterday (or was it day before? I have a mind like a sieve) when I tried to make up custom filters they wouldnt show up at all, now they seem to be working and I can select just deals, vouchers and freebies along with all the categories I want and have it working like the sites old front page.
Not being able to was driving me kinda crazy and I stand by my comment of 'if it was like this the first day I arrived here I probably wouldnt have stayed'. But then I probably wouldnt have known that the damn thing was going crazy because it was a new setup, so, anyways. Here are my settings that make it look like the old front page, then you can dive into the other forums seperate.http://img528.imageshack.us/img528/2481/hukdconfig1rz0.jpg
Admin might note that the crosses in every second selection are invisible.
If you view the rest of the forums as text only you practically have the old site back, plus the timestamps seem to work.
Only real problem now is the time bug, I think. The time displayed on the deals in my custom tab seem to be correct, however viewing likes of Feedback with the same settings returns mad crazy timestamps. Sometimes it happens in the new and hot tabs as well, yesterday I clicked between pages 4 and 5 of one tab about 10 times and got different resluts everytime until eventually it started giving me correct ones ... for a few pages anyways and then I had to ply the game again.
Oh yes ... there is something else a bit major, the 'Filter Deals By Store' ... Its not working properly for me, I cant get play.com to come up for example and you have to refresh the page if you change your mind where youre looking for.
I dont see the big problem with the new look and outlay, as long as it works as it should, though maybe a few 'skins' would be handy for those that dont like to see a negative of what theyve been reading when they blink.
I dont think there would have been a fraction of the negative feedback there has been if it worked properly from the start though, I wouldnt have had anything to say about it for sure.
Hmmm why is there a little red asterix beside Category below my submission when this is the feedback forum and I didnt think everything needs a category here ... its just feedback.
Hmmm I have to choose one ... I hope Im submitting this correctly, I opened another window and seems to be the same options and it definately says feedback forum :s
Ok, it doesnt show category and I cant post an image :/
Oh yea, also set temp threshold to -1000 so you get to see all the deals like you used to.
