Hi B0zza,

The default view with the www.hotukdeals.com is the list of hot deals as they happen. If you want to see recently posted click on the New tab. If you want to see the most recently discussed click on the Discussed tab.

I'm not sure about the changes yet but I don't think just before Christmas was the best time to implement them.

trouble is it show all posts not just deals

I agree.

I clicked on "new" and aside from this message at the top (which isn't a deal at all) the next two deals were apparently posted a year ago. Followed by one posted 25 mins ago.

I'd also prefer it if the menu on the right were back on the left.

Yes but we want to see all new deals not just the "hot" ones. How do they get hot? I realise this was default view in the past. Then all you had to do was click on "filter" which in its default setting gave all new deals.

Hi, I can't seem to arrange by the latest post. Anyone else have the same problem?
#8
:thinking:I agree! It is AWFUL!!!!!!!! Nowhere near as easy to register! Put it back how it was..
#9
Agree
#10
Actually it seems if you click "new" twice all the deals become 1 year old while the discussions remain minutes old. Cool huh.
#11
i don't like it

to much going on

I thought it was me doing something wrong, how do we see everything except discussions?
And as for the size of print, even with a 21" screen, I have to put my face about 6" from the screen to see the print while typing :?:?

I was looking at this delta site yesterday and to me it seemed like it needed a lot of work. Rather surprised it went live this morning and the feedback seems to be negative. It's a little confusing to find the deals that have been posted, it would be good to have a lite simple version like the forum view for those who like to see all the recent deals just posted without discussions etc.
#14
I hate it as well tbh, it's really plain, and difficult to navigate, not very user-friendly at all. What was wrong with the old set-up?
#15
I would also prefer if the rating was less prominent and the price more prominent.
#16
Too much white (wasted) space compared to the old design.
Change for the sake of change in terms of layout and "finding things"
"Submit!" is a bit odd
I'd hardly call this site deal anarchy ....!
Even with a refreshed style sheet, there are still unfinished bits (the top right menu, for e.g.)
The new tabbed view is apalling
The message text size is too small, whilst everything else is too big (try browsing on 800px width screen for e.g.)
#17
how do u view 'unrated deals'
#18
Go to customise your settings, add the "deals", "vouchers", "freebies" to it. Then view your custom tab. Exact same as before :)

why change something succesful.....???????????????

i used to use mse all the time now rarely look at it........

all i will say is at this rate you are going to lose a lot of viewers

THE FORMAT--------------- ALL OVER THE PLACE...... NOT KIND ON YOUR EYES AND NON USER FRIENDLY...
#21
This is definitely not an improvement to the site, sadly. The ordering of searches doesn't seem to sort by date or anything. I can't find anything anymore.

Remember, Admin.

WE FEAR CHANGE!

DOn't hit enter. Type in a few characters, then wait for a drop down list to appear.

This morning I was shocked when I logged on. I now know what was going on late last night!
Initially navagation was totally confusing but after reading (once I found them) a few threads I understand it a bit more. I like some of the new features & hate other aspects of it at the mo. The best feature for me is the first post at the top of each page but just takes up far to much room.

I think however everything is taking up to much space & taking to much time to load. I prefered the compact solution of before even if IMO looked a little dated (mainly colour scheme) & recent posts got lost very quickly if few people replied.

The home page with all the current (best) deals is missing or is it?

Nice try but a bit of a head scratcher right now.
#27
Please put it back, please, please, PLEASE!!!

Some good ideas but it really looks awfull. Layout is not good at all and the ever changing style, font, colour, font size, position is driving me crazy.
#28
We gone backwards???? This is terrible :x Put it back as before please

I tried this Emma,waitied about a minute and nothing? as you can see from my screen shot,by the time i did the screen shot and uploaded piccy,it still had'nt done anything? i tried Tesco,Amazon in vouchers and in deals page,anyone else getting this to work...the search by store button that is?:thinking:
#31
Oh, I'm so confused!!
Am I right in thinking that the default page is a list of all the hottest deals in date order?
How do you look at all deals in date/time order like you used to be able to do in the forum? If I look under deals it seems to include freebies, deal requests etc in the list.
The old forums were really to use and understand. I do think that the way you can filter to find what you're looking for is much better but I definitely prefer the site before the changes.
Why oh why have you implemented these changes just before Christmas?!

[SIZE="3"]I've just written an assignment about good gui's and used hotukdeals as my main example.
now I log on an find this!!!
This new style is unnatractive overly complicated and everything a gui shouldn't be.
If it stays like this i'm wiping hotukdeals from my favorites tab.
Although I may return if I get an assignment on bad gui's.[/SIZE]

[COLOR="Red"]Pls Bring it back!!!![/COLOR]

I quite like the new interface but I'm not convinced all the old data is in there. Trying to find and old thread and its just not there!
I've used the search tool, the advanced search tool, and as i've posted on it i've looked at all the threads i've posted on - its vanished!

it was a long thread (18 or 19 pages) about flights to NY with fly zoom. It was an expired deal.

This?

I typed in flyzoom in the search box and it was the 2nd thread that appears?

The problem with the new HUKD is that people aren't using in correctly.

I'm liking it more and more, especially the facility to switch between forums really easily. Such as Misc, feedback, for sale etc ...

No, thats not it. I really think it got lost in the transfer. I've posted on it a few times and when I look and the threads I have posted on (via my user name) it is no longer listed.

Thanks for looking though.
