Please put the day of the week back on the front page.

Sometimes the FrontPage does not refresh properly in a browser, and it shows previous deals, and its been very helpful to be able to see that you are not looking at yesterday's deals.
I understand the business theory of not having a clock in a resturant or bar, but c'mon...
There's not a good reason to not have 'what day it is' back where it used to be.

Hi,


Do you mean just somewhere on the homepage to have today's date?

Yes, even to mention just the day, like, 'Monday' (like it used to) would be helpful; so you don't have to refresh the browser to make sure you're looking at the current deals, and not the cached page from yesterday.

Regarding the FP deals... those are the ones from the last 24 hours. Anything older that is still alive is under More Deals You may Have Missed.

Additionally, you can view pages 2+ to see deals older than 24 hours broken out by day.

I thought what you said was crystal clear. I just want it back on the page somewhere, even if it just says Monday by itself without the date. I leave SD open so when I tab to it in the morning I now have to wonder if I have already refreshed it

If it's Monday and you are browsing FP deals and click one,it takes you to the deal.
If you look at it and turn the ipad off and go to bed;
When you wake up on tuesday; if you click the sslickdeals logo inthe top left, it brings you back to monday's deals, not current.

that is definitely not how it should be working.

It should always be showing the latest deals at the top of the page based on when they were frontpaged.

So, for instance, if you were looking at the day's worth of deals on monday night, and there were 12 of them, and then if you refreshed the frontpage at exactly 12:00 midnight (now tuesday) you would see the same 12. if a new deal was posted on tuesday, it would get added to the front.

This is what Schooby meant by last 24 hours. the frontpage shows a rolling 24 hours worth of deals, so that if you came at exactly 12:01am on tuesday, there would still be deals from 11:59pm on monday for you to look at (if that makes sense).
