Hi :) Which link are you seeing? If you set your Preferences up for All Hot then it will include all hot but if you select Hot Deals then it will just show you the deals.

It sounds like you're actually viewing All New ( https://www.hotukdeals.com/all/all/new ) but that option isn't available from the Preferences page. Can you let me have more info?

I think they mean that when you select NEW on the homepage now, instead of just seeing new posts in the deals section, you see posts from every section (i.e. Items for sale, competitions).

It would be good if we could filter it to just deals, I can't see any way to do it (using Chrome on iOS 10).

Click the "Deals" section in the top green strip. This has confused many people. "Highlights" tab is located in "All" section, whereas the previous landing page for "Hot" tab, was in the "Deals" section. Not only has the default tab changed, but also the default section. Most people are probably accustomed to clicking between the "Hot" "New" and "Discussed" tabs so they don't realize it's not the same section as before.

Correct, well spotted.
In all the years of using HUKD i have simply navigated to hotukdeals.com and clicked NEW to see the latest deals. Now i have to click DEALS then NEW. Seems backward.

If you come in via a bookmark (like this link - https://www.hotukdeals.com/all/deals/new) and also set up your preferences for the logo to redirect to All Hot (or Hot Deals) then you'll be set. Its a really quick fix if you really don't want to see the Highlights tab.

Hi, is this new ''highlights'' tab on a trial run or is it definitely staying? if so, when will you fix the bug that sometimes still takes you to highlights even with the correct settings enabled?

It's gone very quiet in the original thread you posted that's all.
