User Control Panel "User Posts" Front Page tab and Deals Tab don't agree

gaijin4life 12,890 5,959 September 11, 2016 at 04:39 PM
If I bring up the deals I've posted and click on the front page tab, it doesn't agree with the next tab over that shows all the deals, including Frontpage deals, I've posted. Some on the front page tab don't appear on the all deals I've posted tab and vice versa. Any idea why?

someone else more informed may comment later, but i believe that "deals" only includes threads that are still in hd, while "frontpage" includes the ones that were expired (moved to dt).

But the one I noticed that's missing from "frontpage" is still in HD. It shows up in frontpage, but not deals. Weird.

How long might it take before someone like that from SD notices?

not sure but i think this thread holds the key: https://slickdeals.net/e/6615310-not-seeing-my-frontpage-deal-in-my-profile?src=SiteSearchV2Algo

the archive no longer exists, but apparently threads that were/are old enough to qualify for the archive are not included in "frontpage deals", by design. you can tell which those are now because they include /e/ in the url (instead of the /f/ of active threads).

Okay, I can kind of see that, except that I had a frontpage deal on my deal tab (2011) that was not as old as other deals also listed on that same deals tab (2010). So a Frontpage deal should not have been on my deals tab to begin with, right?

But the strange thing is since mentioning this, that 2011 frontpage deal has disappeared from my deals tab (and was never properly on my frontpage tab where it belonged). Seems like there's some loose code floating around on the user panel. Smilie

nope....it was still in hd (and has since been moved to dt, since it was expired). as you will notice, it has the /e/ in the url, which is how threads that used to be archived are now labeled, which is why it does not appear among your fp deals

on the other hand, things on the deals tabs are deals that are in hd, regardless of age


eta: i'm not a dev so one of them may still correct me, but that is my understanding of how the logic works, based on my original inference and the additional data from the threads linked for you in the last post Smilie

But what I'm getting at is why did that frontpage deal still show up in my deals tab? It was only that one. My other newer frontpage deals do not show up in my deals tab, just the frontpage tab.

because at the time it was still in hot deals. it is not anymore which is why it's no longer there. your other deals that ARE listed in your fp tab are also not in hd, which is why they don't show in the "deals" tab either.
