Yes but the site is much faster Temporary measures for the rest of this week until we can patch in a better system there or get the new site rolled out.

Ahhhhh. Will have to go back to the search option. Thanks.

Is anyone else having trouble using the Filter by merchant filter tool on the main page. When I click on the drop down list, only 'All' is being displayed.
It always used 2 work ok on my browser :-(

But you will in future eh?:giggle:

Any tips on searching for Sky+ deals now the filter option isn't working?

TIA :thumbsup:

make a note of the merchant number by looking at any other sky post. Place it into a link for any other merchant,

E.g. sky digital HUKD merchant number is 232

Tesco deals are under the link:

hotukdeals.com/?me…est

Just change the filter=27 to filter=232

hotukdeals.com/?me…est

Voila. Same goes for any merchant.

Or, go to advanced search, search for "plus", select "thread titles only", select "hot deals" only, click search.

Use the ctrl+F on your keyboard to search for "sky" and you get through pages and pages in no time.

I have to agree its very difficult to find anything by a particular merchant. I typed in SVP and got loads of Argos deals back. Why fix something which aint broke? Anyone know the merchant id for SVP and how to find deals by them as I dont understand the above. Are you saying we now have to amend the URL after searching for the merchant id? Thats just crazy. I think you'll start losing people quickly to other sites.

Thanks for your help :whistling::giggle:

Is the ajax merchant lookup a quick fix for this problem then? If so then I'm having a few problems with the fix in IE6:

PS, I'm sure it worked fine at home in Firefox last night.

AndySX - Works ok in IE7, run an update, should fix it.

Thanks for feedback guys and thanks for helping with questions Syzable.

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately I'm on my works PC and IE7 is a no go due to compatibility issues with a few web apps. I'll bear with it in IE6 (which is fully patched) for now.

It was just to bring the issue to light.

Oh i see. On the bright side, as the top result is clear then if you type in the full name you should be able to click on it.

Tried that, but after a certain amount of characters it seems to stop filtering.
A quick test shows a min of 3 chars for the filtered list to show up, on the 4th character I get a js error and it stops filtering. Oh well, I'm not so fussed if its just a stop gap.

The filter has been updated so you click "filter" at the end after selecting the merchant now...

I can't get it to work at all. This is all I get :

Hitting filter does nowt, just refreshes the page.

the title of the thread is "No merchants in deal filter on front page". I was saying there aint for me either:-D

P.s And a quick flick through this page tells you exactly where the problem is

You type in the first few letters of the merchant, then a list appears... then you select it...

well it may for you, but it doesnt for everyone, i assume its those that are using IE6 that are having the problems

IE6 is outdated now though and it will be catered for the lastest software. IE7 is free to upgrade and it's a better browser. (unless you have a copy version of windows and then tough..........shouldn't be a tight ass. lol)

I am still on IE6 on desktop and 7 on lappy, when it works :oops: I prefer 6 though

No matches found

its very annoying that it changed. i have not been able to find a single retailer since it changed. please bring back the old drop down list style. please please please.

What is the issue? The only retailers it cannot find is the 3 letter ones - it is not setup for that yet.

If you guys are complaining about one tiny box, then you are going to get a bit of a shock when you see the new site.
