Pluves1 you can search for them by clicking "vouchers" and then entering the merchant into the yellow "filter deals by store" box on the right however that filter box doesnt work with Internet Explorer 6, which the mods already know about, however even when it does work with firefox it means you having to waste time searching for multiple merchants on the off chance they have a voucher code available where as it was much easier to scroll thru the old A-Z

Thanks for the support, hopefully Admin and the Mods are listening

The cached Google page still works for the A to Z links.
Not sure how long it will stay up to date though ! :thumbsup:

Was probably a main cause of server load IMHO.

One way to do this would be to go to your custom settings, add all those merchants and view their vouchers... .

Cheers for that!
Still want the old A-Z back though!!!!

Would a A - B -C -D etc list be ok? As I'm sure you know the old list was not particularly quick to load.

Admin
Id never noticed any problems with the old A-Z loading however im sure the majority of the members would be happy with a clickable A B C D E along the top of the voucher page allowing people to see all the retailers vouchers beginning with a letter on one page if it meant the site was more reliable.
It would be a good compromise between searching for every merchant and site stabillity i think

Having the full A-Z list was one of the most useful aspects of this site...please, please, bring it back. In desperation I have resorted to Google cache to find what I wanted today, but this willl soon be outdated.

It was madness to generate that page dynamically every request - they should just create a static html page every five minutes or so

php -q /www/vouchers.php > /www/vouchers.html

The problem is that you might not even know who the potential merchants are!!!

I found a great code for 'Buyagift' the other day - used it twice and saved 25% off my chrissy presents - however I had never heard of Buyagift so how would I have found them???????

A, B, C etc would be ok... but would prefer them to be grouped if possible

Agreed. Can't believe they would make these changes this close to Christmas! Seems too much like hard work! Dare I say it might be easier to go to the shops???? No take that back! :?

Great example of the impact of not having this A-Z everydayisxmas, many thanks

Then again you they could just be listed the way they were before, if i wnt to spend ages looking for vouchers I may as well go to MSE.

I badly miss that section of the site. I used it a lot. Please, please could it be put back.

Yep, bring back the old look...This is terrible, the worst mistake ever..

please can we have it back - old site and voucher a -z list.:thumbsup:

bring it back, would save me the time looking through all the drivel i have to now, was whoever decided to do this on the lead up to christmas dropped on their head as a baby?????????

Always thought an A-Z would help, it would be nice to get that. Also a vouchers by type of retailer would be good, a bit like looking for merchants on quidco? this would make looking for alternative stores you might not have considered easy.

Just a suggestion.:thumbsup:

Yes - this is one of the features I miss the most. I do agree that the vouchers page on the old site took a little time to load, but it was worth waiting for IMO. The individual letters A-B-C-D at the top of the voucher section might make things a little easier?

ETA: I think HUKD should have consulted members properly before making these changes, and constructive comments could have been made beforehand, and these problems avoided

An A-Z list would be good please.

exactly!!
I was looking for any HMV voucher and found so difficult to do it!

It's really not hard.

Go to vouchers on the tab at the top. Type in HMV as the merchant on the right hand side. Click HMV when it appears. None come up as there are none active. If you click "include expired" at the top for example, you'll see the old ones.

Please bring back the old A-Z list of vouchers

Its really easy, I just did it, I'm surprised the mods and Admin don't know how to do it.

Just go to the voucher section, then on the filter box on the right of your screen type in the merchant you want (eg play).

Kudos1uk : this issue people have with this is that you have to SEARCH for a merchant but your hardly likely to go thru searching for every merchant you know just on the off chance their MIGHT be a voucher there of use to you.
Earlier in the thread you will see an example where a member found a voucher of use to them from a merchant they had never heard of and in this instance the member would never have found the voucher if they had to search by company name, they would NOT have found the voucher under this new search system and therefore would have paid MORE money for the item and the point of the site is to pay LESS
In addition the search function you mention doesnt work on Internet Explorer 6 which the mods are aware of

Hence the A-Z list must be brought back

I agree that if you know who you want to buy from then its a lot quicker... but without repeating myself (ok I'm going to) - WHAT IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHO YOU WANT TO BUY FROM????

Please bring back the A-Z,i found a lot of my deals using this,often just going down the list to see what i could do with them and what i could find to use on deals,now i need to know what i'm looking for to go with a deal....but before i usaully found the deal around the voucher,if you get my drift.......:thumbsup:
I feel i will loose out finding deals with the new method,a simple A-Z suited most........but will try the new method,as i have been since yesterday,but gave up as you know site was crashing a lot.... but hopefully things will even out......i noticed you can't leave rep anymore on the deals page to the original poster of deals,or can you?:thinking:

Please bring the whole old site back. So easy an simple.Used to love browsing here, but still can`t get on with the this new one.
PLEASE, PLEASE ADMIN BRING THE OLD SITE BACK.
