247WallSt.com is the premier website for round-the-clock news on business and finance. Started in 2006 on Typepad, they decided in Dec 2008 that they needed to move to WordPress VIP to take their website to the next level. We worked closely with the 247 team to keep the same look and feel of the very successful original design, and added a number of new features to build a community.
247WallSt.com features: a host of social networking tools; Email post to a friend, post to Facebook, Follow on Twitter, Share This, Digg, Yahoo Buzz, Delicious, Fark and Reddit. We also integrated the Intense Debate enhanced comment system, and a tabbed interface in the sidebar to highlight popular posts and the Editor’s picks. Setting a post as a “Featured Article” highlights it on all pages.
