?????

Will take a look for you.

This functionality was something that was not officially supported. Since the addition of the new merchant section it has been removed.

Thanks for the reply.

How do you view the merchants in the mobile view now?

Any reply to this?

This currently makes the mobile site unusable when it is needed on the go.

(Quick 'bump')

Can you filter using the "Search" function, gary_rip?

Just type, say, Zavvi, into the search box & confirm to produce a summary by merchant (assuming the standard convention of including the merchant name in the title is followed, of course).

Thanks for the reply fp...

But they have said there is a new merchant section, I have looked everywhere on the mobile site and cannot find it.

Zavvi is a simple example.

But when you look at tesco it is a nightmare. Tesco is broken down into quite a few merchants. When I'm out and about in the supermarket I only want to see that one. Not tesco direct or tesco extertainment!

Oh and my url in the top post...

I think it was supported, as when you used to search for Tesco it used to bring up a search of deals and a search of the tesco merchants to choose from.

Did you mark this thread as 'Expired', gary_rip?

Some of my outstanding feedback threads have been marked in this state this morning & I have had to report each for re-activation.

Either somebody is attempting to clean-up the "Feedback" threads by closing them all (without further comment), one/more other members are randomly 'Expiring' threads, or there is a further site issue with threads being marked as 'Expired' without any intervention.

BFN,

The Facebook & Twitter channels also do not offer the same functionality (& not everybody's mobile telephone handset supports these services anyway).

Such a shame you are being over-looked considering your past contributions to the site.

@gary_rip - Sorry that the mobile site isn't functioning the way you would like it to. The way you were previously searching for merchant deals was actually not a way that the mobile site was intended to be used.We are looking into bringing the merchant section into the mobile site soon.

For now you can just try this url which will give you similar results
m.hotukdeals.com/search?action=advanced_search&keywords=&search_type=title_only&merchant_id=27%2Ctesco-com-and-in-store&merchant_search=Tesco+%2F+Instore+%2F+Tesco+Wine&user_id=&user_search=&user_search_type=posts&threads_with=minimum&threads_with_number=&posts_from=6months&posts_from_option=newer&sort_results_by=Thread+Start+Date&sort_results_option=DESC&temp_min=&temp_max=&forums[]=All&categories[]=All&advanced_search=Advanced+Search

Am impressed. Works perfect and will allow me to use it for the other stores on my hukd.garyrip.com site.

Thanks for this!
