timtom13,
I only used 'avdanced search'
Put a keyword into the 'Search by Keyword' box and then put the merchant in the 'In Deals For Merchant' box. That should produce more accurate results.
Example: If you used keyword 'split' and merchant 'zavvi' THIS is the only result that you get.

Make sure it's set to 'Find posts from 6 months ago' 'And Newer' as it sounds like your settings have it default to 'And Older'

normal search has been broken for years but admin are too tight to pay for developers to fix it!

Have to agree with the OP and csi, the search on HUKD really does let it down IMO.

I don't have to faff about with advanced search etc on other sites, why here ? And yes it is a pain when one is trying to find out whether a deal is already posted.

Must be time for some action, 2011 and all that ??

Original Poster

zavvi.com/off…736

^^^^^^^This post was took down i did 100% search for it.And i can`t rember my last deal that got took off and one after that,iv`e been to sleep since then sorry.4 years this site been here,and you can`t sort a bug`s out, yes i know it cost money its not free to host this,but come on sort it out

looks like some generic sale? everywhere has a sale
probably got spammed as its just a link to zavvi and not a deal as such?
you can pretty much always find previous deals unless they made a typo

easiest is to use advanced
keyword : single word from item description or title - uncommon one best not 'the' etc
merchant: make sure you dont type name and press enter, you need to let the suggestions come up and select
find posts from: a month and newer
sort by : start date
forum: deals
category: dont bother as people get this wrong sometimes

should get most if not all

Hi timtom13
The last post you made that was spammed was 'Zavvi.com Split/Second £9.85 - PS3 Xbox 360' which is why I used that as the example in the first post. I presumed that this was the thread that you were referring to as you started this thread after your Split Second thread at Zavvi was removed.

If you click on the link (in post 1) does it not show the Zavvi Split Second deal?

Yes it does,but when i did 100% search i could not find the post on here, Thats why i posted it

Split Second Zavvi

timtom13 - it sounds like you used standard search and put 'Split Second Zavvi' into the search box - that will produce similar results to what you are saying. If using 'advanced' it honestly does only produce one result.

typing that in normal search box the thread you duplicated is the 2nd one shown
as andy says though, advanced would bring up one link total if using the keyword 'split' with merchant 'zavvi'

(P.S why doesn't "cause" bring up any hits in search? advanced or normal?)

http://hukd.garyrip.com/search is the only way I can use this site.


what does yours do that advanced search doesn't do?
tried 'split second zavvi' in your search and first was the one looking for the same as from advanced.
with advanced its the only one that comes up (could get more with other options i guess) but your one also lists 2 'duplicates' of it - a general zavvi thread and some other stuff.
is it just a list of posts which contain all 3 terms somewhere in it ..? then ordered down to any 2 etc?
