How do I hide Walmart deals

127 35 February 22, 2018 at 05:25 PM
I don't shop at walmart on principal. How do I hide all the deals. I already have them all set to dislike, and I feel like they used to not show up, but lately I keep seeing tons of walmart deals that I will literally never buy.

Thanks!

the setting should respect what you see on the front page....if you're still seeing walmart deals on your front page can you provide a screenshot so someone can look into it?

note that there is also a forum specific filtering system you can use that should help when you're browsing the forums. note that it will only pick up on threads that have been tagged with the walmart store tag, so it's not perfect, but may still be useful to you.

so, eg, for hot deals, if you are viewing the forum
click "filtering options" on the top left next to the "new thread" button.
click edit next to "by store" and type in the store you are trying to filter out
select it from the list when it comes up and click "apply" and then "exclude" in the next dialog.
make sure to save your changes. you can also set it as default so that the setting is preserved each time you navigate to that particular forum

It looks like this is explicitly for deal alerts. I'm just using the preferences on the personalize front page button on the home page. Thanks for the link though, seems useful for the future Smilie

Hi xijio,

Thanks for providing the screenshot. I was able to replicate the issue on my end. I went ahead and submitted a bug ticket.

Haha, thanks Smilie

Can you re-test and see Walmart deals are still being displayed even after you've set your Walmart store preferences to "Dislike"?

Thanks​

Sorry for the delay, I didn't notice you'd replied. It's still happening:

Thanks for the reply. I've notified the developer to look into it. The preferences hid all but 2 Walmart FP deals for me so we're going to see what's different about those two deals.

So we're not sure what happened but the deal in your screenshot is no longer showing up on the Frontpage for me. It was 20 mins ago... then magically disappeared

Thanks, creating a new ticket to look into it. We thought it was cache related but appears to be something else.
