    HUKD help: Why doesn't HUKD work on my mobile properly? (Mobile Menu)

    About time i came up with another "tool"...

    Was in Asda last week, using my blackberry, and i am unable to search for merchants on it - it doesn't bring up the results list. Also its very slow to load the site to then search for it anyway.

    I thought it might be handy to have a quick HUKD menu to go to so i can get to the right page on HUKD quickly.

    Would like for a few people to test it on their various devices and see if its any good / to give feedback & suggestions.

    Link in post #2!

    PS: You may or may not find this useful, but i made it for myself and thought i might as well share it!

    v.annoying... in the past i have had to scroll through the site to find somewhere i can click ASDA to get the full list. even then i have to click a few times to get it to show it how i want it...

    Only hot deals, deals not expired etc...

    EDIT: Have sent you a link to the "HUKD Mobile Menu"

    send me a link gary_rip, i will test it on my nokia n95

    yes please.

    Will test with my HTC Kaiser.

    You would think after a year, the developers would have sorted out the CSS for mobile users!!!

    I asked for this a long long long time ago when the new site was launched... i would of hoped so too. The site does not render at all on the normal blackberry browser... i have to use opera mini, and even then the full site is a bit "heavy" for it.

    PM sent to all above! :thumbsup:

    Could I ask for the link as well please? Cheers

    just tried it. works a charm. layout is good for your mobile menu, the search function worked exactly as i would have like also, bringing up other retailers and links to view that particular retailers deals.
    This will be an excellent quicker way to find current deals when out shopping. Wont waste too much of my credit being a p&g user.

    Cheers. Had a test. Works ok (ie loads and views). I guess its a case of customising for personal retaillers etc. Would be good if the site could then be loaded with a custom CSS so it *does* render properly!

    if you could make a search function that worked, that would be amazing!!

    Yeah... with retailers, i was thinking be best to have highstreet stores only, and the more popular ones. maybe a second page that has a list of less popular highstreet stores.

    ideally would like to keep the file size as low as possible for people on Pay & Go as above.

    Some of us like to copy and paste deals to our friends!

    Or even send them an MMS of the deal (without having to download 3rd party apps)

    works fine on nokia N95 well done gary

    how about this for a slice of fried gold...

    a hukd merchant search... (in case the shop you want isnt on the list!)

    hukd.garyrip.com/mse…ch/

    (only small downside to this is that it doesnt filter out the cold deals when it takes you to the hotukdeals site)

    EDIT: Have now added this to the HUKD Mobile Menu!

    EDIT2: Thanks goes to shanecr for giving me the idea for that!

    Tested it myself on the iphone... shame it starts so small and you have to zoom in to see it. But only an annoyance rather than an issue

    you just need to use the normal link - the iphone link was only for testing.

    Also the Mobile menu has now been updated to work with the mobile version of HUKD... so now you can find what you want quickly AND it displays correctly on mobile phones!

    If anyone could give it a test to make sure its working as expected and post here it would be much apprecited.
