iPhone 7+. Chrome.

Line height (or box size) needs to be adjusted.

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.

Cutting off the top of letters is very "in" right now.

Same on android and iPhone SE with safari
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Which device/browser? Can you post a screenshot?

The logo and ad banners are not final.

Please add all fixes to the wiki.
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.

If you miss the 15 line posts use the legacy site. We even added a cool skip to next post feature.
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.

I see it now, it's good, the problem is that there is a 1 second wait for the header to appear

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  ???)

really great job, Suave. Is this a totally, 100% custom made website, or is this using templates and/or Wordpress?

GREAT! (and thanks for not having the entire banner pop back down.)

Not by me. (Firefox on windows)
