    Why is the standard search on here so poor

    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 it's SO annoying.
    People are always commenting on it.

    Just incase ur still looking for the deal it's here

    I know,the search on here is terrible it drives you insane even on advanced!!

    I always google - hotukdeals (search query here) seems to get better results, still a bit hit or miss though

    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)

    Thanks csiman!

    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.
