Yep, shows as the 3rd results for me. Sounds like you need to turn on expired deals, as mentioned above :)

Thanks for the tip! It took a little while to figger out how to enable expired items (click on 'Show Tools' first) but now I can see it as the number 3 result. Numbers 1 & 2 don't mention Hovis at all in the title or body, so I have no idea why they rated higher.

Sigma: What does preceding the search term with a '+' do? It seems to have no effect.

Its a boolean search that was introduced with new version of HUKD < +> includes a word in search & < -> excludes word. Supposedly a better way to search. Recently linked to a thread by Admin explaining it so name stuck in my head. Found a site that explains it a bit better than me ;-) >http://www.bbc.co.uk/webwise/askbruce/articles/search/booleansearch_1.shtml

Sassie, things are a bit weird for me as well. I noticed that when I go in advanced search & look for threads I've posted in, the results from ones I posted in today seem to be missing. Whether they are being sorted out of order or aren't registering I don't know, but it's not producing normal results. There's been a few weird glitches I've noticed today as well :thumbsup:

It's an expired deal, possibly expired since you last saw it ? >http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/248283/shure-se110-sound-isolating-earphon/.

To include expired deals if it is that & not just another glitch (sorry big images) >

I think the display can also be confusing for new members for a different reason. The above shows my alternative display options ie the opposite to what is displayed currently ( I have text only, am including expired & showing instore deals as well) but looking at that you might think that the options displayed were your current view not the alternative views available. (if that makes sense).

yes i do know what you mean, and could be confusing, especially to new members, i have no excuse :oops:

I always have tools hidden because im always somehow clicking on things and changing them, but when there hidden there is no search by merchant, so then i unhide them to search and forget to hde them again, and back to square one being back here saying i cant find this, or i cant see that - lol
