Welcome to LatestDeals.co.uk
I'm Tom (or Kelsey - having two Toms in the team is far too confusing!) and I'm responsible for the geeky side of LD. The site is brand new and, whilst I've made every effort to make it as bug free as possible, I've no doubt you'll uncover weird and wonderful "features".
If you do find something behaving oddly then just give me a shout in here and I'll do my best to get it sorted as soon as possible.
If, on the other hand, you're craving a feature that doesn't yet exist (notification alerts, anyone?) then head on over to the "Feature requests" topic that Tom made.
Thanks and here is to optimistically hoping this topic doesn't get too many replies!
How to delete my own deal post? how to change the link after the deal was post?
Hi george, you can expire your post by hovering over the three vertical dots on the deal page and choosing edit. If you need to change the link just @tag me in a post and I'll come running!
have we still got a Dashboard and Notifications if so where can I find them
Hi Bestoffer you can get to the dashboard and notifications via the dropdown menu that comes up when you hover over your avatar in the top right hand corner. That said, if you're using the Edge browser there's an unfortunate bug where it doesn't always come up at the moment (a bug I intend to exterminate today ) so, in the meantime, you can access them here:
TomKelsey Morning Tom, Hope you're well. Last night I posted a deal (via phone as my laptop has officially now been cremated ) and the description section is just very tedious to input. - at times back space is not possible - when typing a word and then adding space, doesn't add a space but joins the previous 2 words together - Got to the end sentence and couldn't backspace, screen was stuck, couldn't type anything at all, so performed a cut and paste which then allowed me to type further.
Thanks for the heads up! I put a few fixes live yesterday and I intend to do a few more tweaks today to hopefully resolve the problems you were having with sharing deals on your mobile. If by the end of the day it is still all going wrong please shout and I'll reinvestigate!
Notifications - when someone replies to you, not seeing a notification alert. Would be nice to see them pop up when you log in :)
Threads with an expiration date seem to be ending a bit prematurely. Instead of ending at 23:59 or 00:00 they're ending at 00:01
Touch wood this should be fixed now
I don't think this is classed as a bug but I didn't want to create a new thread about it.
I've tried to share a page but the url isn't valid https://www.amazon.co.uk/b/?node=10835299031&pf_rd_r=9RHEBCG67BBY6A3BYE3P&pf_rd_p=e749ff0c-b30a-452c-8a29-5a890a12826c
Morning Bash thanks for the heads up. At the moment LD only allows for specific Amazon products to be shared (because that's all we can accurately track against) but it is in the pipeline to allow any Amazon page to be shared with the caveat that it won't necessarily track properly. Current plan is to plough through a lot of bugs today - if they get sorted quickly I'll try and look at this too
This should be fixed now - the websites will no longer mistake us as being Irish!
I added a P&O offer today (Free Wine Day Trip) and there's a problem with the ampersand (&), so it displays like this:
P&O Ferries FR
Thanks for the heads up - I'll have a dig and see if I can work out what's going on there. Hopefully get it fixed soon
Text entry seems a bit weird today, with a box that you type into. Seems to make editing what you've written (on the fly) very difficult.
In the chat section it often days a comment was shared ‘a few seconds ago’ . That seems a bit odd when some of the comments are several days old. A bug?
yes true... ive noticed that as well.
Hi Sarah, good spot! This should be a little more accurate now
Are you still having problems with this? All seems fine this end but then it often does so that doesn't mean there isn't a problem somewhere!
I've been trying to comment on my mobile (iphone6) but the comment box is hidden behind my keyboard rather than moving above it, so I can't see what I'm typing. Not sure if it's a problem with my phone?
Hi, thanks for the heads up - I'll have a look at this and try and get it sorted ASAP
Are you able to look in to it?
Hi Kelsey - I tried to post this deal but it said it doesn't recognise the URL: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/0552573353/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_bowaybGNCA6HV
It may just be me and my PC....when I try to type into the 'Search' field I'm finding it very touch sensitive, such that I keep having to edit it. So for example I type 'Argos' and on the screen it appears as 'aos'. That's the only field on LD where this happens. Weird!
Sarah Kelsey - hey I get this too. I think it's because the search refreshes results with every character typed. And so if you type faster than it loads the results, it deletes what you typed. It may be useful if t only searched upon pressing 'space', 'enter/return', or clicking the button?
