Website Updates - 12th February 2019

News

Hi guys,

A big ol' update is going live today.

If you notice any bugs or have any feedback with the update please post in this chat topic and we'll try and get them sorted ASAP.

Here are some of the changes that you might notice:

  • We've tweaked the design of deal pages. We now use lovely big images on desktop and have tried to make it clearer when a deal is expired, hasn't started yet, has a P&P cost or has a big discount.
  • We sometimes "refresh" old deals if they become relevant again. This should now be much more obvious with a new "refreshed" label.
  • For those of you that use "list" view on the homepage, we've improved the design and managed to squeeze in a snippet of a deal's description on mobile too.
  • The "post" button for comments should now move out of the way when typing to give people more space - especially on mobile where it can sometimes be difficult to see all your awesome words.
  • We've completely overhauled the settings page for members. We used to have separate sections to edit your "profile" (your /@username page) and then your LD preferences. This, understandably, confused people so now they're all in one lovely new home - settings
  • If you're reading this you're probably already a member and don't care - but we've rewritten our user registration process from scratch to make it more straightforward and just generally better!

The majority of the changes are behind the scenes to allow for the launch of Flash Deals (hopefully very soon!)

Thanks for being part of LD πŸ™‚

From what I have seen Kelsey, the changes are all so far very good, a lot easier to view now and also much clearer than before 😍

Looks great, but filtering by categories doesn't seem to work for me, I get the same content no matter which category I choose...

I'm having this problem too. When I first enter the green entered marker shows but it soon disappears when I leave the page etc. Shows as entered in the little menu at the side but no green entered sign.

The new updates are nothing too weird so I'm fine with it all. Not a biggie but Im so used to the positioning of the 'competitions' tab that it's taking a while to get used to.

Hey meltoms πŸ™‚ Could you let me know what happens when you try? Do you get no results? All results without as if no filter were applied? Something else?

Seems to be working okay here so just trying to get to the bottom of it πŸ™‚

I love this site. On my wish list though for the competition section would be a clicks to win category. People show these as website or e mail but they are not actually either of these.
