Title: The New DDMS!
Post by: jj1000 on February 01, 2017, 07:17:07 PM
All feedback is most welcome, especially any bugs, glitches, suggestions, and positive feedback is appreciated too.

Things to keep in mind due to it not being a live version.
1. The speed will be slow.  Improved (the serious speed improvement will only be noticeable several days after GoLive) [Suave 2/2/17 4:14am]
2. Some images may not fit properly. Fixed (some images inside of posts may have extra spacing below them, working on a solution now) [Suave 2/2/17 5:21am]
3. the gear icon to switch to the legacy mode isn't functioning yet. Fixed [Suave 2/2/17 6:56am]

New home site: http://beta.dansdeals.com/

New Legacy Mode site: http://beta.dansdeals.com/all

If you will be leaving feedback about something the best way to do that is to be as specific as possible, meaning what device/browser/screen size you are using and a screen shot is always helpful if it's something that needs to be fixed.

You can select Explore New Features to see some of what we have added.

I'd like to give a huge shout out and thank you to Dan for trusting me with this endeavor (None of this amazing community would even exist without him) and to Suave for helping &  creating this fantastic new site. I hope this helps lead DD/DDF to an even greater future.

I hope everyone enjoys.

The title "Dan's Commentary" seems a bit awkward imho. Perhaps something like "Other Posts" or "General Posts".

Each category can be clicked on and you'll see the description of that category. It may explain them a bit more.

I think a lot of people.are coming to the site to see what Dan has to say.

That said some category names will be changed. I just can't do it until the site is live.

good. I'd tweak/work on the logo a little bit more.

The new design, is clean, sleek, and modern looking. I'll miss the long 15-line paragraphs on the home page, so instead of the 4-line Deal Description, can you increase it to 5-line description? This way we can get an accurate look at the deal and decide if we need to click on a new page or not.

Ok, I'll start by combing...  :P

The top blue bar that has the "sign in/join" (which doesn't work with my DDF login btw), "advertiser disclosure", "forums" etc. is too small. It's not inviting enough to DD/DDF. Once this is enlarged, along with the social media icons to the right there will be no need for the HUGE intrusive social media icons right beneath it.

Where is the wiki?
Nice job, guys!!

Suggestions: Having the title of the post show in a box by hovering over it is redundant IMHO.
OTOH, hovering over a button called "read more" under each post that would show the full text of that post sans pictures would be incredibly time saving.  I wouldn't have to be transferred to another page, wait, and read a triple spaced text that takes up a page or three.  Likewise, hovering over the number of comments (on the upper right of the post blurbs) to see a box pop up with the text of the comments would be great.

so far the legacy link just shows item lists. Haven't see a paragraph view. A 5-line intro is fine for the basic site. It seems that some links show 4 and some show 5 lines.

Will look further to see if there are 10-line paragraphs in the legacy mode. Here is the current legacy page view on a MacBookPro:

It's interesting how "watch" became a shopping category (tab under shopping deals) like Amazon, ebay deals, coupons, free stuff etc.

Maybe should have a section where members can search by product (either like a filter or have the alphabet layed out where a user can click on one of the alphabet and see deals on products that begin with that letter).

Using firefox on a windows laptop. See attached, though the picture in the attachment is flawed cuz it doesn't really put the screen in proportion to how it looks when viewing the actual webpage.

I'm on Safari iPhone
1. When scrolling down touching an expired deal it goes back to color until I touch a different place on the screen.
2. I think the DansDeals banner should stay sticked to the top, so when scrolling down it's always there (I like this style).
3. I defiantly like  the first OP link option better.
4. TU/TD feature that was talked about, is that over?
5. The navy on white I don't like, I think it needs a bit more color.
6. Fonts are very plain.
I'll leave some for others... 😉
Thanks Dan/JJ/Suave and everyone that's working on this great idea

One more important suggestion:
The words DansDeals in the banner is tiny
SSL for logins I'd like

Galaxy S5 Chrome browser

The black buttons under shopping deals with the names of stores etc is very small and difficult to select a store. The drop down arrow is almost impossible to select and then the drop down list forget about even trying... (maybe just my pudgy fingers...didn't think they were)

Please no! It's a pet peeve of mine! While it's a very cool feature, it's a HUGE waste of valuable screen real-estate.

With this tiny "DansDeals" which you can barely read?...
Honestly that Amex banner is a bigger waste, but that's advertisement, if you ask me since you already change the headlines to run one after the other the ads can go in between, it's gonna make the overall experience a lot better

If anyone paid attention, I made a smarter sticky header, when you scroll down a page and then scroll back up (even slightly) the header will appear so you don't have to scroll back to top.

The tabs in under some of the categories (especially under the "Dining & Travel" category) need to really be revamped. There's no clear cut line as to what is a category and what is a specific.

For example: Brazil and Hawaii are too specific. If they are about TRs to those places they should be under the Trip Notes tab. If it's about general info of these places then there should be a "Destinations" tab with submenus to all various destinations available. (IOW why Brazil and Hawaii of all places  ???)

Same thing is with Hyatt. It should either go under the "hotel deals" tab or there should be two separate tabs "Hotels" and "Hotel Deals".

Beautiful!!

A few things:
1) Before "CREDIT CARDS SHOPPING DEALS AIRFARE DEALS DINING & TRAVEL DAN’S COMMENTARY" there should be a HOME button

2) I'm sure some visitors would appreciate a "tour" when they first access the new site, explaining what changed and where they can find everything.

3) Over here:

It looks like "latest posts" is one of the choices, when really it's a header for "all/creditcards/shopping deals" etc. This is confusing. Maybe by default "All" should be highlighted to show that it's selected, and when you choose another one that should get highlighted.

4) I think there should be an About page explaining what DD is and who it's for

Latest best practice is not to have a separate home link (you can click on the logo)

If your on a desktop, you can try the "explore new features link" when you are on the homepage above the logo (still a bit buggy though)

I know to click the logo, but I have a feeling many DDMS readers won't :)

I saw that. Didn't do anything for me (chrome on desktop). Either way, it would be nice if something popped up the first time you visit the new site, so that you don't have to find it. Something like "welcome to the new and improved DansDeals.com, click here for a quick tour"

Post by: srap on February 01, 2017, 09:39:30 PM
I see that people are posting in the thread instead of wiki so:

1.  'Explore New Features':
      a.  The first feature bounces around for awhile, then the other features flash by too quickly.  Is it possible to display all the features on one page so the eye can glance over them all at our own speed?  Perhaps a one or two word description that will give a full description when we hover over it.  That way we don't have to waste time waiting to go through the whole menu of changes.
      b.  After the current menu runs its course of displaying all the new features, it gets stuck on the first one.

2.  Faded expired posts:  Pictures need not be faded, too hard to see.  We still refer back to the posts even after expired and pictures is one way to pick them out quickly.

3.  Color change in titles of read posts:  Intuition says that a read post would be lighter, not darker, IMO.  Because a second color is already being used in expired posts (gray), you may want to use a lighter shade of the unread titles for the read titles.
Title: Re: Presenting The New And Improved DDMS Beta
Post by: etech0 on February 01, 2017, 09:41:36 PM
Regarding the "explore new features", there should be a more obvious way how to get to the next feature. Maybe if you don't click anything for a while, something should display that says "click anywhere to continue"?

ETA: most of my suggestions are probably not necessary for the average DDFer, but I like to try and make things dummy-proof :)

I see an icon near every post that's missing a picture. Is that by default due to lack of picture, or that icon there as the pic that belongs? It seems like that latter because each icon is relevant to the corresponding post. If so, however, then the icons are much too light. Nearly invisible.

Dan's comments/replies to comments should stand out a bit. I liked how in the old site his name was purple.
On Disqus he'd have his own profile that you would recognize easily.

Save money while traveling the world. We post the hottest airfare prices, catch the most sought after glitches, and find the best mileage deals available online.
Is this something Dan really wants to have as part of the header of a category?

Dan and JJ third person hand pick the lowest priced and highest rated items on the web to offer our first person readers the best quality shopping deals. As they (arguably) third person say, there are deals and then there are Dan's Deals.

Everything you need to plan the perfect trip! Learn about the latest airline news, and the best mileage programs out there. Find deals on hotels, restaurants & cars, ensuring you have the best dining & travel experience anywhere you go.
If the category  is "Dining & Travel" you may want to reorder what can be found under this category to "restaurants, hotels & cars", so that it's in the same order as the category name.

When you swipe from the left, you can choose a category. The only way back us to go back to the home screen via the dd logo. Intuitively i think you should be able to swipe from the left and unchoose the selection, or choose 'all topics.

The tabs under some of the categories (especially under the "Dining & Travel" category) need to really be revamped. There's no clear cut line as to what is a category and what is a specific.

For example: Brazil and Hawaii are too specific. If they are about TRs to those places they should be under the Trip Notes tab. If it's about general info of these places then there should be a "Destinations" tab with submenus to all various destinations available. (IOW why Brazil and Hawaii of all places  ???)

My guess would be that it happens when an admin tags a post as expired. In which case it obviously adds lots of work for Dan and JJ to remember to tag those posts as expired in order for that feature to work accurately.

A thought I have had for a while, which might be applicable to both DDMS and DDF, is to have a "Parenting" sub-header.

This leads me to suggest adding subcategories for Shopping, Credit Cards, and Travel etc. Or alternatively to add filters (such as by price range, sub category, destination, airline, issuing bank, etc.)

Unless they let people (DDFers?) mark posts as expired, something like RTM. It would have to be moderated, of course, but might help somewhat.

Well I think that it shouldn't be offered till fully set up. It may be a good idea for future deals, but not for past deals. It would be like an Israeli falafel store trying to open too early, no chairs, no fries, no cucumbers...you get my point. Don't offer a feature unless its finished. I'll gladly volunteer some time to go through posts now, and mark as expired or current

And that you can click on the logo to get back to the homepage should be first up IMO. That's something which people want to know, but don't necessarily have the patience to watch till the end to find out.

Where is the wiki?
Nice job, guys!!

Suggestions: Having the title of the post show in a box by hovering over it is redundant IMHO.
OTOH, hovering over a button called "read more" under each post that would show the full text of that post sans pictures would be incredibly time saving.  I wouldn't have to be transferred to another page, wait, and read a triple spaced text that takes up a page or three.  Likewise, hovering over the number of comments (on the upper right of the post blurbs) to see a box pop up with the text of the comments would be great.
This would make it very very heavy to load

If anyone paid attention, I made a smarter sticky header, when you scroll down a page and then scroll back up (even slightly) the header will appear so you don't have to scroll back to top.
Noticed it, thought it's a bug that it doesn't show the whole time & wanted to report it. Now after you explained it I see your idea.

Beautiful!!

A few things:
1) Before "CREDIT CARDS SHOPPING DEALS AIRFARE DEALS DINING & TRAVEL DAN’S COMMENTARY" there should be a HOME button


Latest best practice is not to have a separate home link (you can click on the logo)

If your on a desktop, you can try the "explore new features link" when you are on the homepage above the logo (still a bit buggy though)
In mobile, there should be an option in the sidebar for home. As opposed to having to click on the DD logo, usually by mobile to get back to the home page the have a button in the menu, clicking the logo is only for desktop sites.

I am guilty of not reading the whole thread, and I apologize if this has been mentioned upthread.
Personally, I think that if every post has a picture at the top that it might be good idea that the picture is simply the airport codes and if it is round trip or not (ex. "JFK --> SFO", or JFK <--> SFO) to make it easier to find relevant deals when navigating the website. I am also not sure if the pictures would appear in the notifications, in which case it can even more helpful.

Yes, but I feel that the picture captures the eye more. The main issue I have is with websites sending notifications with the picture (I am not sure if you plan on setting up a new notification system). On some devices the text might not show due to the picture and it renders smartwatches useless since one must click on the notification instead of just glancing at the screen.

From all the existing content? I don't think it needs to be done for those posts.

Unless they let people (DDFers?) mark posts as expired, something like RTM. It would have to be moderated, of course, but might help somewhat.


I'll gladly volunteer some time to go through posts now, and mark as expired or current

No. Why does it have to be? Just need the most recent 30 or so posts to be up to date.

ETA: thanks for the offer! I just don't think it's something that's needed.

There's gotta be some relevant deals/posts. For example: sapphire reserve or amex plat travel credits, the latest info on different cards like the citi post from July

Then they will show up even when you hide "expired" deals.

So why not only mark the old "deal" posts as expired?

In mobile, there should be an option in the sidebar for home. As opposed to having to click on the DD logo, usually by mobile to get back to the home page the have a button in the menu, clicking the logo is only for desktop sites.

agree.
When you swipe from the left, you can choose a category. The only way back us to go back to the home screen via the dd logo. Intuitively i think you should be able to swipe from the left and unchoose the selection, or choose 'all topics.

Eh...You want every person who's searching the wrong dates/on the wrong site/putting in tge wrong code to have access to that button? DDMS commentators often report deals dead when they are alive and kicking, simply due to ignorance or mistakes.

I think one is for sub categories and one is for general categories. I seems to look normal to me. Just because something is there twice doesn't mean it's a bad thing.

Another thought, one is at the top of the page redargless of which page you're on, while the lower menu bar is only for the home page.

They serve completely different functions.

The first is the general site navigation (which appears on every page of the site)
The second is a filter to narrow the latest posts to the category that interests you most
(for example I am not interested in any credit card posts, I just want to see the latest airfare deals)

when clicking buy this item, it should take you to the amazon lisitng, it should not add the item to the cart. As alot of times I still want to check out the item before buying it. (specially if the deal expired, but wasn't flagged as expired, then you might order it without chapping that the price went up)

Also i think, that for amazon deals, the "buy it now" button should be the the traditional amazon button.

Nice!!

At first glance, a couple comments:
-I like the layout. Feels very polished; I like how it keeps the DD feel but with an updated look.

-I would reorder the links on top like this:
About Us, New Features, Advertiser Disclosure, DansDeals Forums

-I would make the link to DDF open in a new tab


New Features page:
I would make the header bigger, and remove a little bit of the whitespace between each item. Or make some of the images smaller so that each item is equally spaced.

Talking about the look - not the functionality - of the site, my overall feeling is that it's too clinical-looking. Maybe something as simple as a slightly off-white background could fix this. In a way it looks like a platform's default template.

The first impression of the homepage is "just another lousy deal site", not a respected and well-regarded one.

Talking about the look - not the functionality - of the site, my overall feeling is that it's too clinical-looking. Maybe something as simple as a slightly off-white background could fix this. In a way it looks like a platform's default template.

The first impression of the homepage is "just another lousy deal site", not a respected and well-regarded one.

Needs some color, especially the new logo, it looks so good standing alone, but near that rich color ad, it's wiped out.

JJ lives in Sunny Miami with his wife JJ and their son Carmy. He was at Penn Law 3 years ago when he joined the DansDeals team to help Dan expand the deals section increasing the type and amount of deals posted daily

"Incredible work, as a graphic designer I must say it's up to par and conventional. Keep up the good work."

"(Mobile view) I feel like you thought of everything!!!! I also like that the comments have a specific button to see them. It's a really nice neat &amp; clean user friendly interface!"

"Awesome. It is slick"

"Looks great. I like that I could now hide expired deals"

"Great job Dan! Congratulations"

"Love it. Very easy to navigate and the layout shows more in a smaller area."

"I love you Dan your amazing!!!! Keep it up I'm one of your million supporters followers!"

"So much easier and clearer to navigate!"

"Very clean and easy to use design"

"Love that there are images next to the post's snippets and that it's mobile friendly"

"So much easier and clearer to navigate!"

"It's a huge step up from the previous site and I'm looking forward for it to become the main!"

"Love it! Looks way More professional"

"What a beaut! Gotta say, the old site never bothered me as it did what I needed it to do. But now that you made this one-gotta say it's great!"

"It looks a lot more user friendly!"

"much better layout"


Each of the following words showed up more than 20 times in the feedback: Love, Great, Awesome, Clean, Amazing.

If your target audience uses Matzav, YWN, TLS or any other jewish site, dont expect them to give up their ad blocker. I realize that you can disable it for an entire domain, but whose going to do that...
Depending on the Adblocker it might be stupidly easy to disable it for one domain. I use uBlock and when I click the extension icon there's a huge power button, click on that and it adds the domain to the whitelist...

1. Assuming this is all under maintenance, but you can only click the like button on the first post as a negative,I even managed to click the dislike twice on the first post about the Florisheim shoes ,was just testing out the buttons and can't even retract from my dislike, it should be you click it again it removes the dislike or it removes the like, just like the like function in the forum where you can retract,
 
2. Hate it that there's no time on the post, I love seeing when it was posted not having to think if it was 3hrs ago then it must of been between 2-3 O'clock.

3. I kept on getting the error message that I'm not logged on so I can't leave likes?

4. Is there a setting button which is on its way?
Are you going to still support the old layout and allow users to enjoy the olden days?

5. Great work over all, just got to get used to all the new features and looks, will take a bit to adjust.

Don't see an option to switch to legacy view from mobile.

Also was very used to the colored background on the old site. Can it be added even slightly? I find it easier to read.

Keep up the amazing work!

Post by: srap on July 05, 2017, 01:48:51 AM
Fantastic work, guys!!
I just started reviewing the new site.  Here are a few minor corrections thus far:


1.  New Features>"Scroll To Next Post
For those that prefer to use the legacy view, we have created an innovative & ergonomic way to improve your experience"

Should be 'who', however you then switch from third person to second person ('your experience') so I would change it to 'of you who'.

2.  Dates on the posts that are on the pull down menus ('Credit Cards' through 'More') will help us figure out if this information is current or a few weeks old.

3.  About Us>Beta site (on right)>   "...on the beta site, you may notice ..."   Should be '. Y'   Start a new sentence.

4.  About Us>2nd paragraph about Dan>  "advice on all things points, miles, ..."    Should be 'things, points,....' 

5.  About Us>3rd paragraph>        "buzzing with activity bringing in 100,000+ daily views"      Should be 'activity, bringing...'

6.  About Us>JJ's paragraph>           "started Penn Law 3 years ago when he joined the DansDeals team"
       This will become quickly outdated.  Could be '...Penn Law when he joined the DansDeals team in 2014'   (or whatever the correct date)

More comments:

1.  Pressing the black bubble containing the number of comments brings you to the comment page for that post. 
      The title reads, 'X Comments on "(title)" '  The main idea here is the title of the comment page, not the number of comments. 
      It would be better '(title) - X comments'     The eye will see the name first, then the number.  Comments is not important and does not need to be capitalized IMO.  Also, no need for quotations around the title.

2.  About Us> on right
What is the purpose of listing Dan's and JJ's latest posts and deal finds?  Why is there a differentiation between Dan's posts and JJ's posts?  Why do I, the reader, care who found the deal?

3.  Home Page> 'Credit Card Posts' through 'More' - I love the pop-up, horizontal picture menu of latest posts
     a.  Could 'Credit Cards' have the same horizontal menu when the cursor hovers over each of the pulldown categories?
     b.  Is it possible to add an arrow on the right after the last picture to continue getting more of the previous posts in that category?

4.  Expired deals - I am not satisfied with the fading of the pictures.  It is not easy to quickly discern which pictures are faded to shades of gray and which pictures are normally black (shoes) or gray (carriages), the wording is hard to read, and I often refer back to the pictures and wording after I purchase a deal even once it has expired.  -->What about only a faded category title (ex. Amazon, shoes) with a thin slanted line going through it?  It will be easier for one's eye to pick out the expired deals when comparing apples to apples instead of apples to oranges and pears and strawberries (ie only category titles vs pictures of different shapes and sizes).  Also, a faded picture needs explanation as to the meaning where a faded title with the 'NO" symbol is more universally understood.

5.  Shopping Deals>Kitchen - Are all of these gray pictures expired deals?  Also in Shopping Deals>Family Deals>Baby (carrier).  If so, the category title is not faded like in Shopping Deals>Amazon>3rd picture of the luggage.

Why is the font in the legacy view so much larger than the standard view? Limits usefulness. More immortality, the old site had more info on the main page but not the entire post just a few lines and then a link to read further. In the legacy view the entire post of the trip notes of the JETSETTER flight is there. Having yo scroll through that much material to get to the next post really doesn't work.... How about something closer to the original layout?

Let's say we came up with a way to display prices in a different format (not just in the title) - What structure would you like to see?

Was: $99.99 Sale: $59.99
or
Sale:  $59.99 Save: $40

or another format?
First is better than second. I would make it look like Amazon does, because that's what people are used to

Just taking a look at a few of todays deals, the "yesterday" price is inaccurate.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01FWIEMSU
This was not sold by Amazon yesterday, but it was actually $798 vs $699 written on DDMS

https://www.amazon.com/Acer-KA240HQ-Abid-Monitor-Ports/dp/B06XYS6Y1J
This was $104 yesterday vs $120 written on DDMS

I think you're just looking at the list price to get yesterday's price, really you should be looking at Keepa.

Using ccc.

Looks like CCC is missing a lot of data that Keepa has.

Quote

CCC shows $699 but with a serrated line because it went OOS a few weeks ago, it was actually selling for higher through 3p sellers. Keepa reflects this better. Same for the Acer screen, Keepa shows it dropped from $112 a few days ago, CCC is missing that and the lightning deal completely.

ccc never puts in the price when it has coupons nor when it's a gbd or when ever, only the standard price.
 How about Keepa, does the price they show reflect all the coupons and avlb savings avlb on that day?

I think coupons aren't reflected in Keepa but all the lightning deals/gold box deals are. Look for the little red circle.
It also tracks price changes more often the CCC.

Because I want to stay away from actually syncing all users to the main site as it will triple our database size and will result in a significant decrease in speed and performance.

The alternative that makes the most sense is to have the users stay in the ddf database.

For the avatars to display nicely on ddms, we would need to crop and optimize them on the fly which again would impact performance.

Theoretically we could just crop all avatars on DDF, but some of you may not like the result :-)

I'd rather have speed then aviators on the ddms.

Done.
(was tinkering with actually showing the total amount of new replies or unread posts but the requests hit the server very hard, oh well...)

Leaving this here for record's sake.

Telegram doesn't seem to work like other companies in that regard.

If anyone knows the guy running it and can reach out to him that'd be cool.
Seems fairly easy.

Also, there should probably be a way that if you are not interested in notifications, to remove the icon.

Or is this to encourage posting comments without reading that four other people posted the same thing?

Can it be put back there?

You're making it sound like it's a terrible request.
One thing I know is if there's a hot flight deal I'm probably running to my computer to book it.
And I'm not subscribed to desktop notifications, don't want to be, and doubt even 5% of your readers are subscribed to notifications.
It's not terrible, it's just not possible with the caching system in place that is needed to keep the site up under heavy traffic spikes.
You can always go to Twitter.com/DansDeals if you don't want to wait the few minutes until the cache clears.

Serious.
If you have the link (Via desktop notifications, Twitter, SMS, FB, etc) then you'll see the deal a few minutes sooner than it will show up on DDMS.
Then maybe this should be posted somewhere on the main site so that people know of this advantage.
Title: Re: The New DDMS!
Post by: Racer7400 on August 11, 2017, 01:45:08 PM
Happens to me to (I guess everyone at this point) only since the new site. Yes, it was discussed here already and the problem with doing it your way is it, takes you directly to the item not to the post, not such a big deal but sometimes I want to see the post.
If you click on the picture it takes you to amazon. If you click on the words/link it will bring you to the DDMS page.

Why is this so complicated?
If you are signed up for desktop notifications you can click on that link on your desktop and go directly to the post.
You can also go to Twitter on your desktop for the direct link.

Otherwise, you need to wait a few minutes.
It doesn't bother me I was just saying what i do

Google pays per click.
So displaying the ad itself is not bringing the revenue, though targeting users with interest based ads compels them to click ads and bring in revenue.

Obviously some of the numbers are proprietary information. But I can say that the largest segment of users are direct visits (and most of them visit at least once a day) which is much higher than the average for deal sites and it's mostly due to brand loyalty (as DDMS consistently provides high quality content & deals).

Mobile traffic has surpassed desktop traffic after the redesign (which is what we were hoping for) so now more people are able to take advantage of deals before they die.

For accuracy. Or historical purposes. I want to know how long a deal lasted, or if people in the comments saying, "dead", are jumping the gun.

More information is always helpful. Used to be there on the old version of the site. It's definitely useful for understanding the timeline of old posts.

Why two post buttons?
Look a post with lots of comments and you will see.

The blue one should be "Jump To Post Comments"

Interesting...

Any way for it to only show up after X amount of posts?

The blue one should be "Jump To Post Comments"
Or change the black one to 'Publish Comment'.


ETA: I see now that one is labeled
Post A Comment,
and the other is
Post Comment.
Subtle diyyuk, I believe that most will not Chap.

What was the issue?
Was showing this as the home page for a minute. Also got legacy mode a couple times on the home page over Prime Day.
Probably a caching bug.
