    So I did my research and narrowed down the wordpress themes and plugins, but before I head over to trying them all and losing my mind I figured I'd stop by here to ask for any clues.

    (warning: this may come stupid to some of you, but it's been a while since I put up my last WP sites so I may be asking trivial stuff)

    I don't want/expect you to go checking them, but if you recognize any of them or can recommend a combination, this is what I am after.

    I'll be creating sites with aprox 40 articles. 20 will be "product how to/guides", other 20 will be "product reviews". What I need is the homepage to feature top 10 reviewed products in a table with scores, conclusion, image, buy button - that starting above the fold; as higher as the design allows. Then below that there will be 10 "how to" articles. Then in the menu the will be links to sub-cats and latest posts, just the usual.

    The important part is the homepage to feature the top products up on top.

    Now when inside any of the articles/reviews I'd like to see "top products" being featured inside the menu as well. Is such a menu combination even possible? (bare with me as it's really been a while since I've used WP)

    As far as the amazon plugins I mostly only need this functionality:
    - ability to enter ASIN codes and the plugin will just download everything from pictures, prices, descriptions and even user's reviews
    - ability to refresh the prices (and/or price reductions) daily (via cronjob)
    - localized linking; so I can use multiple amazon accounts and direct traffic to each based on geolocation of the visitor.
    - optional: search & download products within the category, using filtering options available on amazon like

    This is what I've narrowed the themes/pugins down to:

    AMAZON PLUGINS:
    easyazon
    woocommerce-amazon-affiliates
    wpzonbuilder
    reviewazon

    Design has to be cool. Animations and cool looking little things are important. If at all possible I'd rather see the scores not be made with stars but rather some other type.

    Any clues what I should use out of the above?

    Sigh... Appears no one has the clue or those who do just went through the process themselves and don't want to share :)
