if i type Asda into the search bar looking to see if the 2 for £7 deal has been posted, why in the top 20 searches doesnt it come up?
yet it comes up with asda deals from 2 months ago? yet its currently a hot deal from 18 hours ago with heat of over 1400 degrees?

I know,the search on here is terrible it drives you insane even on advanced!!
#3
I always google - hotukdeals (search query here) seems to get better results, still a bit hit or miss though
#4
I just wish the default search ordered by deal posting date rather than the last time someone commented on it, that would make it instantly 100x better for me.

This is a better search.

waste of a thread. devs just ignore the screamingly obvious request to make the sort order by date.

:-D - you deserve commission.

Why dont hukd just use your search.

its 10 times better and is on my links bar :thumbsup:

in fact, its infinitely better as the hukd basic search is just broken (he types whilst screaming into a 10 mile deep borehole cos its more effective at getting the point across to the 1 hour a year developer on this site:p)

Great idea gary_rip *props*

So I've gone and stolen your idea (and your custom search form) and built it into a Greasemonkey script which will replace the HUKD search (top right) with your custom search.

This works in Firefox - so if you are on FF, get to installing greasemonkey and then install the HUKD Google Search mod.
