Hi all!

I have to first say thanks to everyone here, the contribs, the softwar itself..all amazing. Took a bit of work to learn how to use it, but it worked out ok.

 

Had my site live for a while, sales are low, but not in search engines yet either..

let me know, good, bad, ugly!

thanks

 

Site is right...here!

Hi

 

I like your site and you have some good products but there are a couple of things IMO you need to do....

 

In these links :-

 

Shipping & Returns

Privacy Notice

About Us

Why Cedar?

Is Online Ordering Safe?

Links

 

 

I think you need to use one standard font in all these links, not different ones. You seem to have Times Roman

(small & large) and arial/verdana in others. I would suggest, stick with arial/verdana preferably

one font size and only going bigger/bolder where you need something to stand out. Also try right hand

justifying your text too, I think it looks better.

 

 

If you follow the instructions below, please backup your files before you start.

 

At the top where it has the links Top ? Catalog (Breadcrumb),

because they both do the same function you can remove one of them safely,

here are the instructions:-

 

 

 

Remove the word 'Top' and then rename the word 'Catalog' with 'Home'.

 

In application_top.php around line 470 change from

 

$breadcrumb->add(HEADER_TITLE_TOP, HTTP_SERVER);

 

to

 

// $breadcrumb->add(HEADER_TITLE_TOP, HTTP_SERVER);

 

 

 

Then in /catalog/includes/languages/english.php under

 

// header text in includes/header.php

 

change the word 'Catalog' in the line

 

define('HEADER_TITLE_CATALOG', 'Catalog');

 

and make it read

 

define('HEADER_TITLE_CATALOG', 'Home');

 

 

Your header needs to be slightly larger too

 

 

These are just my suggestions, not a critisism.

 

Again, great site :)

 

Good luck with your online store

thanks for the tips!

the header fit perfectly yesterday, must of goofed something, thanks for noticing that. And as for the fonts, again, didnt see that :)

I think we stare at our own sites so long we miss the obvious!

thanks again, the breadcrumb tip will be done shortly.

made the breadcrumb change, and i like it..never really noticed that top and catalog were the same thing, this cleans it up a bit..

thanks again.

you couldnt pay for a better support group than this! :)

Arcadiauk,

When you refer to my links being of different fonts and that i should right justify them, how in the world do i do this? my extra links were added the same way as the other ones, so i dont know how the font changed :P

oscommerce throws me off on these simple little things.

thanks

The site looks great.

I like the header alot. It looks real nice with the background.

Fixed width is always nice to.

You might want to do something about the buttons though.

Make new ones in green-ish color? :)

I agree with the changing the buttons color.

 

A lot of the images stretch to the specific width not sure what you could do to make the images better. Someone else may have a better suggestion.

the buttons is a good one, thanks :)

width of images is a battle ive been fighting with several stores..trying to resolve that, im sure there is a contribution, just havent found it yet.

thanks to all so far! :)
