    change is a good thing sometimes,

    but this change is the web equivalent of Songs of Praise getting Gordon Ramsey to host... its ludicris.

    this change is good people!


    just a shock to the system! maybe we will get a chooice of layout to use to get used to it that would be nice!

    And do what to that page as it says:

    Customise your email/rss alerts and Custom tab settings by selecting the following preferences (default is "All"):

    To cluttered.

    Way to large.

    I don't mind change but I'm finding this site impossible!!
    On the old site you had all the deals with a time they were logged in (not 2 hours ago/40 minutes ago!!!!)
    I used to look at all the deals and filter with newest so that it was just deals....no discussion!!!!
    I've filtered for newest and all I'm getting is a couple of deals showing but mainly its all dscussions like this thread!!!
    I'm not being rude, I enjoyed reading the discussion threads but if anyone can tell me how I can just get the page where all the deals are posted as they are posted, I'll be happy!!

    Scroll to the bottom of the page for that link.

    you will see a VERY small check box :

    Send alerts via Email

    Put a tick in it ans click on SAVE at the VERY bottom of page.

    You will now get all deals by email.

    IM hating this site now....prefer it how it was before. Was alot easier to navigate through. Im struggling to find the forums on this

    I quite like it - just takes a bit of getting used to. Once you are familiar with where everything is, it works. I think.!! Change is good and change doesnt usually happen unless it is necessary so I am sure there is a good reason for the change and hopefully it will put an end to all the 'we are busy getting deals' default error page which is soooooo frustrating. Well done HUKD

    Change is good but only if it's for the better.
    This is like taking a huge leap back 10 years ago when no one knew anything about web design and navigability.

    So how do you get the page with just the deals on NOT discussion aswell....if you press the HOT at the top, that just gives you the hottest deals.
    I want all the deals with NO discussion....I'm getting so frustrated!!!:x

    I couldn't get on for a while i thought great they came to there senses and are putting it back to the old site.This is the worse layout iv'e seen for a long long time.I was gonna post some stuff for sale today but i'll leave it for now,surely some staff will realise what a mess it is soon.

    post was meant for people who agreed that the change is ok, not for load more negative response. I dont know if i am getting new deal emails as I am only set up to receive tesco deals. But surely everything deserves a chance & I am sure the moderators or site owner whatever will iron out any problems asap. Someone said it was a bad time to change the group, so when would be a good time??

    Thanks for backing me up!! people just think it is bad because it isnt what they are use to, I have been on here about an hour & am use to it already, would feel strange for a while if it went back to the old site now.

    anyone else agree with me?



    No

    This site is so hard work now, its not a good user friendly place to be now, please sort it out somebody!!!

    Perhaps they should have got professional web designer in to do it?

    I'm talking design in an accessibility sense not how it looks.

    It is truly *****

    Folks, stop complaining, and just go an figurwe out how to use the site.

    If you just want to view deals, why don't you go to "customise your settings" from the front page, just add the forums you want to see, then save. View it from the custom tab at the top.

    Almost everything you could do before is still here. Plus extras.

    change is good sometimes

    however HUKD couldn't have picked a worse time of year to make this change

    this should have been brought in after the January sales when people would have a bit of time to get used to it

    So tell us how to receive new deal alerts then please even when the box is checked in settings. I know I aren't the only one with this problem.....

    if people are gonna moan they will moan whatever time of year it was done. maybe better putting more effort into actually getting use to the site than sitting moaning about it

    i agree people will moan whatever time of year

    just that people are stressed buying Christmas presents this time of year...and theres only one or two days left to buy them online

    you've gotta laugh at admin changing it now....doh

    i think its progress and people dont like change and dont always deal with it very well!!

    i like the new site and im still getting used to it but give it a couple of weeks before getting all hot and bothered!!

    Great Advice, we complain as we don't like the site in the view that it might be returned back to what it was, its worth trying to get it changed before we stop using the site.

    Also why should we have to "figure out how to use the site"? Websites are supposed to be simple and easy to use. Im fairly computer savy and this site just has no logic whatsoever. I didn't have to figure out how to use the old site.

    I think a lot of people should grow up and stop bitching about things they know nothing about, the old site was in the dark ages.
    Well Done HDUK, great site

    Not going to happen.

    When we had the big change a year and a half ago... which was even bigger than this by the way, the amount of whinging that went on then too.

    If you want to see the deals, click deals. If you want to see the vouchers, click vouchers. Or set up a custom page.

    Or I wont bother, goodbye hotdeals.

    thats the point though emma

    your last change was a year and a half ago not a year ago or two years ago (i.e. 12 days to Christmas)

    you can't blame people for moaning....you've basically asked people to moan at you

    I can't answer that... admin knows there is an issue there.

    change should be welcomed not "take some getting used to"

    there is a reason V Bulletin is the most popular forum software used and why people dont change it, it was sure not broke and no one even tried to fix it, hell if anything you could have upgraded your version of v bulletin to include extra features. as i said in a different thread the "Text only" view is much better....and as close to how the forum was before as I will get so...thatll do

    Where has the A-Z list of merchant voucher codes gone?
    When i click vouchers it has them listed in order of post , surely we havent got rid of the A-Z list???

    Use the merchant filters at the "filter deals by store" jase. Type in the first few letters of the merchant you want. Then click it when it appears.

    EDIT - oh i know what you mean. I'm not sure.
