Still working for me in:

Mozilla Firefox 34.0.5
Microsoft Internet Explorer 11.0.9600.17239
Google Chrome 39.0.2171.95 m
Opera for Windows 26.0.1656.60

don't mind the layout , but navigating the site is slow and unresponsive now.

Far too much white space in the new layout. Makes it much more difficult to read the site.

The text is too big and takes up too much of the page. Gone back to the previous look

See comment #2.

Well, the old theme is dead for me in FF 34.0.5 and also FF 35.0 but it works in Chrome 41.0.2251.0 dev-m (64-bit) and IE 11.0.9600.17501 which is a total PITA as my browser of choice is FF.

p.s I still dislike, intensely, the "new" style layout. Every time that I come back to it, I find it counter-intuitive and threads like this prove that I am still not alone.

Happy New Year to you all, even those of you who like the "new" version.

Please allow us to continue using the old format.

Under the old format, my screen shows 15 deals, "text only", listed by "discussed", and that's with the "tools" visible. Under the new format, the same screen shows only 8 deals. I can't see any extra, relevant information, so a huge waste of space, and a lot of scrolling!

The old "Tools" had a "filter by store" option; I'm sure this must exist somewhere in the new format, but it's not obvious!

Old theme is dead for me in firefox but ok still in chrome so i guess i'll just have to use chrome for this site.

I take it back, clearing cookies has helped

Also works in good old Opera 12, if anyone thinks "new and improved" shouldn't be a downgrade.

The "old skin", the "new skin", the "newer skin", & the "newest skin" most likely function in many browsers & many versions of many browsers (not limited to those previously discussed here).

The improvements are not necessarily required, nor worthy of upgrading (nor downgrading).

Thank you for the information though.

Mobile-wise; as I reported eight days ago...

I have loaded HUKD.com "Standard" on each of the following browsers on my Android 4.4.2 "Smartphone":

* "Internet" version 1.5.28
* "Firefox" version 34.0.1
* "Chrome" version 39.0.2171.93
* "Opera" version 26.0.1656.87080

All show the site Forum summaries in "Full Details" layout as expected; i.e. using the "new skin" (not the September 2011 "old skin"), or the "NFE" (New Front End/new responsive) implementation.

You need to sack whoever designed the new theme because its so wrong in so many different ways, you can't view more than 2 pages of deals without getting a headache. Its not good on the eyes at all.

Oh God, not another new crappy design. And no old format either*
Where did your designer learn web design, Blind School?

why is the text so big, bring back the old text line format.



New layout is good on most tablets / qhd mobiles, not so good on all other desktops / devices..

Old layout is rubbish on most tablets / qhd mobiles, really good on desktop, laptop, big screens..

So seems HUKD is in a bit of a Marmite situation at the moment

note: based on everything BUT apple displays of any type

Just click or save this link as a bookmark, simply switches one to the other, regardless of any local stored stuff, worth clearing cookies as well anyway, especially with all the Qco & Tcb hits that keep getting "missed" ;-)

Came on earlier to a new look layout. I found this thread and started reading through it, went to page 2 and back to the old layout. I tried the main deals page and got the new layout then went to my profile which had the old layout. I logged off ran ccleaner and just came back now.........and everything is the old layout. I am losing it or what ?

*Trying now in Chrome and it looks different again.........I suppose variety is the spice of life !

"Crap Cleaner" ("CCleaner") is not doing any special, that you cannot control yourself with the standard options of any mainstream web browser.

Please see my continued discussion here:

We really just need one thread for these tangents.

There must be at least half a dozen ongoing across the site now!

It really is the crappiest looking site on the internet. A front page that just boasts Branston beans and masses of white space. When are the support staff back from hols?

I've got 34.0.5 but I can't get the good 2011 version

Have to agree I don't like it either far to "clunky" for me

The version is not important in this content; I just listed the respective revision references of each to demonstrate that I was using the latest available to the general public.

Use the "Tools" / "Options" menu item, & click the "remove individual cookies" text (it does not look like it is clickable) within the "You may want to clear your recent history, or remove individual cookies." sentence:

http://i1152.photobucket.com/albums/p490/_fanpages/HotUKDeals%20Feedback/Mozilla_Firefox_Tools_Options_Remove_Individual_Cookies_zps0e34152e.jpg

Then locate all the entries for "hotukdeals.com", specifically the "tsv" value:

http://i1152.photobucket.com/albums/p490/_fanpages/HotUKDeals%20Feedback/Mozilla_Firefox_Tools_Options_Cookies_hotukdeals_zps6202e163.jpg

Click the [Remove Cookie] button, the click the [Close] button. Finally, click the [OK] button on the first dialog box shown (above).

Now copy & paste the "old skin" link to the address bar of the browser:

[ hotukdeals.com/?ts…-09 ]

If that does not help, you can try removing all of the cookies for the "hotukdeals.com" domain. Please ensuring you know your password for your member profile before you do this!

Not sure whats happed but the site is really slow now and in opera 12.15 (I use because it has the best auto fill feature ever) it will not work at all. Pictures don't load and none of the buttons work

My comments on the new layout:

* Horriblly spaced out. Inefficient use of screen space
* Voucher code merchant lookup missing (very useful feature lost). I have already started to use competitor sites instead.
* Intrusive ad for newsletter sign-up between posts even though I am logged in and signed-up anyway!

No positives so far I'm afraid.

Helen Keller's birthday is not until June 27th it is a little early to release a skin in her honour.
