I've been thinking of this myself for a long time, just was about to post it but figured someone already had, probably a few times. Sorting by heat seems such a logical addition would be highly valuable and a great addition.

The box on the page where you can see by hotest by day, week,month etc. just doesn't do the job.

For instance even if I do a filter by merchant... lets say dell and then I click on teh hotest deals this it shows deals from other merchants.

And waht happens to all the great deals that fall between a week and a month? There is no simple way to fine them. It leaves a gap of about 3 weeks.. and who know how big the gap is between a month and all.

Shame really, it woudln't be hard to implement at all. Basically it's just a case of sorting by a couple of valus. Temperature and merchant.

I hope a mod reads this and takes note.

You have to select "hottest" first - then filter by merchant.

P.S. Mods have nothing to do with site development.

Hi Emma,

Pelase can you help me. Where exactly is filter by hottest first?

It's not in the advanced search and the filter by hot on the result pages does not give you the hottest first. It just gives some kind of random result with warm and hot appearing in an apparently random order.

Thanks

Ok I've just seen the update that's been made. Now, forgive me if I'm wrong as I've just woken up but it's not exactly what I was (personally) requesting. I understand, you can and have always been able to, since the major overhaul of the site, click the "HOT" tab to view the hottest deals, these are the Hottest (new) deals. However these are not sorted by heat, which is what I was hoping for . I also know you have the top (5?) hottest deals for each category on the right hand site but again, it's limited to 5 hottest deals, ideally what I was hoping for would be an extension of the right hand mini view, where you can choose, say for example "view top 100" hottest deals, which would of course be sorted by heat (descending).

If it is possible and I'm overlooking it, feel free to patronize me so I can figure it out, cheers

Spot on!

That's not in the site functionality at the minute guys.

Oh, the label is misleading. It says "VIEWING: All filtered by Deals sorted by hot"

Thanks for the reply Emma. Have a lovely weekend.

It is sorting by the time it was made hot.

Cheer's admin. Thanks, I understand it now. I guess it was just the labelling. Do you think their will be a sort by heat, maybe in the advacned search in the near future?

Thanks for clearing it up. Don't get me wrong, this is such a great site, easily my most frequently visited, there's just so much more potential for it, specifically with searching and sorting. I know there's other threads on the issue so I won't go on, plus I'm fairly certain you guys are well on the ball. Thanks again

We're going to try and spend a while working on search in the next couple weeks. Don't worry we do agree we can make it a lot better.
