    Date Problem in Coupon Finder in Bent Box
    To the moderator:

    On the Coupon Finder in the Bent Box several of the dates are showing as "Blank --then the day and 11 for the year. Example: BLANK 08/2011
    It makes the database basically useless if I have to go find the date elsewhere. Is there a quick way to find a solution for this problem? Or can it be fixed soon? Or should I know what Blank stands for? Could it be the current month?

    This is a random problem with different merchants and it is happening with both the beginning and end dates of the promotions.

    I was really hoping to get some updates done today, but I am not comfortable about posting promotions without accurate end dates.


    Thanks.

    What did you do Trust? Just put your best guess? I'm about to. I was going to use August for anything but the 31/2011, which I would guess would be December. Talk about slowing things down to a crawl....

    Just figured out a -- not so great -- but a solution. If you click on the XML feed, it shows the correct dates. You can manually make the adjustment to the feed.

    I don't normally use that, just checked it out for the first time a couple of months ago. I usually just get the links in the interface and also check out the Deal Dispatcher, which I have bookmarked on the other computer.

    Thanks, Trust. I finally got through the list, but it's taken entirely too long. Hope they fix it soon.

    Ok..I saw Linkshare people viewing this post yesterday, yet no response? What's up with that? This is the second time (post) where the problem has been mentioned. Is there a fix soon?

    Hi leeann,

    I did see this message/thread you started. I actually first saw the issue when Trust posted it in the LinkShare Tip of the Week thread. When I first saw it, I reported it to our tech team and they have been working on resolving the issue. This is a high priority issue and we are working on it.

    Unfortunately, I don't have any other update. The work around you mentioned is still accurate with the XML.
