Recommendations for Theme & Plugins? Deal Finder Site (8 posts)

    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!

    Hmmm...maybe. I hadn't thought about anything special for coupon codes I come across (beyond just posting them in the normal blog entry), so that's interesting. Like I said, I don't know much about this yet so your feedback is exactly the kind of thing I need. Thanks so much!

    No problem, if this helped, can you please hit the "resolved" from your end.

    Enjoy WordPress,

    That feature may be something useful in the future, but I could still use some advice on the main items I'd like the site to do -- email subscriptions and the automatically posting tweets and FB updates. So for now I guess this is still "unresolved". Thanks, though!

    Feel free to browse the Plugins Directory yourself.

    Thanks again, Emil! Esmi -- I have browsed the directories myself. I've already been testing a couple themes I found by browsing myself, actually. There's just so much out there that I thought that someone may know something that could help with the search, like Emil. Some experienced users like to assist new users. Some don't I guess. I know I do in matters that I have experience with.
