Hi guys. I'm brand new to WordPress and just installed it on my site. I'm now trying to figure out the best theme and plug-ins for my needs and I'm a bit overwhelmed! What I'm creating is a site that published deals, sales, and other product news for a niche category. The goal is to make a little extra spending money through referral fees.
Besides posting the deals on the site itself, I'd like for each post to be automatically posted to a Facebook page, Tweeted, and send an email to subscribers. If people can subscribe to specific categories of interest for their emails, that would be cool, too. I guess working with RSS would be good, too. :)
I'll also want to put banner ads along on side as well. And then have a way for people to submit deals they've found that I can repost after I see them (an email notice that I have a new message would be ideal).
Can anyone suggest a theme that does anything close to this, or some plugins I can use? I've seen "feedburner" mentioned in relation to email subscriptions, but I'm not sure what that is yet. Like I said, I'm new! I'd appreciate any suggestions. Thank you!
