Maybe there's not many deals?
#2
One or two deals in each section? Surely there's something wrong
#3
Hmmm I thought site was being a tad tetchy tonight...

If I go to any deal section eg Gaming, Mobile etc hardly any deals come up.

Hi which forum view tab are you selecting when you are looking at deals ? Is it 'New' / 'Discussed' / 'Hot' / 'Custom' or the new 'Highlights' tab ? If you can upload and post a screenshot in this thread then that would help identify the issue, It may be the tab you are viewing or that you've chosen certain viewing options.

Looking at some of your flagged categories eg

https://www.hotukdeals.com/gaming/all/new
https://www.hotukdeals.com/mobiles/all/new

They appear to be displaying correctly.

I think the answer to this is pretty obvious, Sigma.
OP is obviously using the new default "highlights" tab and is as confused as everyone else because it's been implemented poorly.

It's that new Highlights tab. Where the F did that come out from. Take that crap away it's pointless!

Highlight deals until no money left.

How do I get the old look back with the top stuff above the listings without having to switch tabs all the time ?

If you are only interested in seeing deals that have gone hot with the top deal carousel then use this link as your HUKD bookmark

https://www.hotukdeals.com/all/deals/hot

Also you will be able to set your own preferred landing page (eg the one above rather than default 'Highlights') when you login in once it's live

Can you not just press the 'Deal' button at the top of the page to the right of the HUKD logo?

No. Why should we users do that all the time? It was much user friendly before just visit Hukd.

I don't get what goes through ADMIN/S brain at certain times. Highlights tab is pointless. Just get rid of it. If you really want to be greedy and make money might as well start charging to use Hukd.

What, one extra click? to see the section you actually want to see and it should still be the same when you come back onto the site if you haven't cleared your cookies.

Edit. If you click off the site and then come back to browse later it does go back to the 'Hot' deals section, which is what I guess the majority want to see.

Doesn't work. If I click on Deals. Exit browser and visit Hukd. It goes to main highlights tab auto. I don't clear cookies nor do I eat them.

To be honest just get rid of HIGHLIGHTS and return Hukd website back to how it was.

Ever heard of the term;
If It Ain't Broke, Don't Fix It...

Message to; ADMINS

Please get rid of HIGHLIGHTS or to make it fair run a vote. Let your viewers decide if they like the new HIGHLIGHTS tab or not.

Simple.

Ah, so you can click deals to see the section you want but you're moaning about having to click an extra button. Gotcha.

What about bookmarking the deal section? can you do that? http://www.hotukdeals.com/all/deals/hot

I can do that but my point is why add things that hardly makes any difference instead causes confusion to some visitors, even loyal members? Obviously some will complain or moan (like me).

Now explain the benefits of the HIGHLIGHTS section over the others.

I didn't say anything about there being a benefit to the highlight section. I'm just pointing out if you can do something, why don't you just do it.

I'm pointing out;
- If it ain't broke don't fix it
- Doesn't provide any benefits over current sections
- Doesn't make any difference
- Visitors/members didn't ask for HIGHLIGHTS tab to cause confusion
- Poorly implemented
- No notification of this new HIGHLIGHTS being implemented (I didn't get any sort of notification this is being added unless I was blind to miss it).

Even after changing preferences it still loads the awful highlights page. Putting me off using the site.
