Looking forward.

Just wondering as I'm looking  up thread, does it need to cost 100k to update a WordPress site that doesn't need a checkout page?

Nice! Looking forward to seeing this. Have you guys ever though of just using disqus for the comments?

Thats exactly what I did :-)
Although using disqus puts a big dent in my plan for integrating forum users to be able to post comments without registering/logging in.

It would definitely be nice if comments by forum users could be recognized by their username.

Here's a quick list of site suggestions/ideas of the bat in addition to posted upthread.

1. Static header and footer.
2. Footer to have a sitemap. ( Good for SEO too )
3. Have a load comments button ( in addition to load the full details )
4. Advertisement banners between deals
5. Less deals per page?
6.  Or Have them listed side by side lineup ( example Slickdeals )
7. Allow users to respond to questions posted?

If I may, I believe yeshivaworld has a login option for their forum members that works on their main site as well.

Look at VIN mobile site where between every article there are 4 ads.

True but he seems to be happy with having them on the side.
TBH, I check VIN less often now. It's a real eye sore. Why can't you have the ads nice and nearly on the side?

Now if Dan was asking for financial advice *maybe* I would agree with you (although not necessarily).

Finally someone discussing VIN News. It is crazy how the current site works with all the ads. The pages never load because it is constantly checking for ads. I seriously stopped checking the website ever since
