turn it off until they fix the bug? There is another thread about a similar issue, but the easy fix is to turn it off for now.

Consider using a custom RSS feed to get the deals you are interested in.
#2
Thanks, I unchecked 'receive email notification' just before I saw your reply. That has stopped all the emails.
I'll try the RSS feed.
#3
OK, just tried the RSS feed with my parameters and am just getting every single deal in my feed! Is it all broken or is it something I'm doing wrong? Does it work for anyone else?

As far as I know, tags don't narrow down the output, it's whatever you have selected in the other categories and forums.

Whether this is a bug or not, I don't know.

I suppose it is a bug otherwise what is the point in the 'tag' field being there to be completed?
#6
Yes, it's a bug. I've let the developer know. Thanks!
#7
Thanks emma!
#8
Did you add any other options besides the tags?
#9
I chose 'deals' for forum and selected active deals.

The tags section acts a little differently then the other sections. It doesn't exclude any deals it only includes them. So if your tag is say, for ps3, if anyone posts anything on hukd with the tag "ps3" you would get an alert email. The Forum, category, and merchant filters work differently. So by selecting deals and adding the tags you were basically saying "give me all deals and anything else with the tags baby or steriliser".

Sorry I don't understand?? What would I select (for all options) If I just wanted to get alerts for sterilisers for example?
#12
You would just select steriliser as a tag.
