You can access more pages, when you click on 3 for example 4 appears ready for selection.
banned#2
yeah we know that but before you had pages 1 to 10 so could open the first 10 with a couple of mouse clicks.

now it takes forever to open 10 pages!

click on 1, 2 & then 3

go to page 3 and click on 4

go to page 4 and click on 5.....................

its a bloody nightmare now!



this site just gets worse by the day.

From our server stats it seemed no-one was clicking past the first couple pages from the home page.

We can change it back. Let's see how it goes.

Well I use all 10 all the time. Can't believe I'm the only one.

Why take functionality away due to low usage? It must take barely any more resources to display the links on the pages.


PLEASE PUT THEM BACK! :-D

If you need it csi then just change the link to the right page number, you can go anywhere then!

Yes, PLEASE!!

Regrettably I can only access HUKD once a day, and having 10 links allowed me to just open them all in one go (using the "Snap Link" add-on).

Having three is just the same as having "next" and "previous" only. It just takes a long time to navigate through the pages and IMO is most inconvenient for those who only have a limited amount of time they can spend on the site.

I thought it was just me as I've just installed Firefox!

yeah but I like to open 10 pages at once so by the time I get to each page it has fully loaded. :thumbsup:

Either program something to open page numbers 1 to 10 or get off dial up?

Great idea! Why didn't I think of that. I'll just have a bookmark group with the first 20 pages in and open ALL.

Nice one! Rep added. :thumbsup:
#14
OMG! i cant believe they have done this. i automatically open the first 8-10 pages in a separate tab when browsing throught the deals so that i dont have to keep re-reading the same threads when going onto the next page as others had been bumped up.

Now with things this way.......there is a greater chance of people missing out on deals by simply not seeing them.

CHANGE IT BACK PLEASE!!!!!!!!

might as well cut it down to 1 thread per page then. A ".lot neater and cleaner" and less functional ;-)

me too, tbh I never go back further than page 3 anyway,old news and all that!!!!! :-D

it all depends how many sections you have shown. For me, 3 pages could be only 10 minutes back!

yes please let us have it back it was so much easier

How about a compromise?
instead of 1-10, hows about 1-6? thats gotta be better than 1-3
i am HATING it at the moment :x

thanks for that, :thumbsup:
the links are ok, but you would then have to set up the same for 'freebies' etc.
users shouldnt have to need to do that. what about the people that dont have a clue about things like that? all makes for increased difficulty in browsing the site and people will just end up not bothering.

totally agree but I only ever use custom view and never bother viewing individual sections.

Quite a sweeping statement "no one goes back three pages".
I suspect that a significant number of HUKD users do not live with their nose stuck to the monitor waiting for a deal to be posted, and do other things also.
These users may access HUKD only once a day, or every couple of days, and yes, these users would go back more than three pages.
IMO allowing users to navigate only three pages (and let's not forget that on page 2, it becomes 1 page only) makes it totally useless.
We were promised that they would revert to the previous method if people did not like it.
It seems to me that people do not like it.

Hello,

I'm no expert, but surely removing these extra links is in fact going to increase server load?

no; as you just click page 3 then when that loads you click page 4 etc

no difference from clicking 1 through 10 from page 1 except the load is more distributed.

pain in the backside for heavy users though :x

It's not about the Deals section is about people asking for HELP in the Misc forum, after one day it's on page 10 NO ONE goes that far back as Admin have just stated.

Well maybe just for me then :-D I was browsing this morning, and wanted to go back 10 pages at a time, I found myself loading many more pages than i necessarily had to.

I see what you mean and yes it would be a lot heavier load if you wanted to get to say page 3 from page 30 and went backwards 1 by 1

change the page number in the URL

e.g. the following loads page 27

http://www.hotukdeals.com/custom?pagenumber=3&page=27

that was easy.

its all an awful lot of fuss over nothing really isnt it :p

Whats happening with this then admin? is it going to be put back to how it was?
i personally would appreciate it.

Maybe put it to 5 pages.

I know there's a few users here really wound up but statistically we can look at the logs to see what people do. Of the daily pages loads around 5% will click on the second page from the first but already at third page that plummets to 0.025% (that's a quarter of a tenth of a percent).

Most users navigate the site one page at a time. For example they will load page 2 and then page 3 but they rarely navigate from page 1 directly to page 3.

That will do for me. a nice little compromise. thanks :thumbsup:

is it possible to have three pages as default but under control bar put into up to 10 pages to those that want it (me included)?
banned#39
I'm not too fussed either way now as I have a new button which opens the first 30 pages which I use all the time now,regardless of whether I only need to see the first 5.
