Forum Thread

Found a way to redirect to forum instead of deal pages.

Wasn't really sure where to post this exactly. It's kind of a duplicate of multiple "suggestions" with a solution to the problem too. Moderators: If there is a better place for this post please feel free to move it. I wasn't sure.

Anyways, I wanted some way of going from the redesigned front page deals to the actual forum post. I like the redesigned front page but not the new "Deal Pages" or whatever you would call them.

Anyways, for at least a temporary solution I have found a way to get it to work using a chrome extension and a simple regex.

Install the following extension called "Redirector":
https://chrome.google.com/webstor...dlknciafen

Then open up:
chrome://extensions/

Find "Redirector" on your list of extensions and select "Options".

You're going to add two redirects and you should add them in the order provided here, otherwise it may not work for all links.
~~~~~#1
For the "From" field enter the following:
Code:
(http:\/\/slickdeals\.net\/f\/.+)#.+$
For the "To" field enter the following:
Code:
$1?v=1
~~~~~#2
For the "From" field enter the following:
Code:
(http:\/\/slickdeals\.net\/f\/.+?)(\?.+)*$
For the "To" field enter the following:
Code:
$1?v=1
Now from the front page this will allow you to click on the "View Deal Details" link or the "Comments" link they will take you to the actual forum post, not what I am calling the "Deal Page".

If you only want to redirect when clicking on the "Comments" icon, then only do #1 but change the "From" to:
Code:
(http:\/\/slickdeals\.net\/f\/.+)#commentsBox$
