If we are doing that we might want to just move all the travel ones to that section.

I put all travel together. We can split them if that's what most people want but I think it might be better with fewer sections.

How do we make 2 columns?

I am not so sure anymore. What does everyone think? One Travel section or one for each subcategory?

Should we keep the links as they are or have them link to the most recent post in the thread?

Usually you only want to see the last few posts in these threads so it is easier to link to the last page, no?

ETA: Right now the Amazon thread is linked to last post as an example.

yes the small icon on the post header on the right!
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

Yes. As I found out yesterday.
You can probably put something together with Tampermonkey

ETA: looks like this works:
http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=16069.new#new

(replace the topic # with the one for the thread you want)
For now I switched the Amazon link to do this. I think it is better but I want to hear what others think.


ETA: I have tried doing it in the past by right clicking
the small icon on the post header on the right!
and copying link address but that will always link to the post that was last at the time you created the link, not the current most recent post.

There's no reason to go to first post than go to the last post if you can link straight to last post

I just noticed that JJ added these to the wiki in the GFS rules thread about 10 days ago so thank you JJ for that.

I hadn't noticed the title change and that is why we should probably leave it in a separate thread so people will see it and so they can leave comments and requests.
