I didn't read over all of your pages or anything but did take a quick look and I have to say I like the overall look of the site. I enjoy seeing sites that people take the time to change the look of... so many don't do more than change the header. lol

 

Good job and good luck =)

nice site, your item images are quite large 30000 each for a small image of only 125x125, my whole header image is 750x200 and comes to 14500.

 

but anyway i like what i see.

 

good luck

Take 2 steps out of your checkout process and streamline your site, and its easy!

 

Get rid of the "Welcome Please Sign In" Page, this page stops people in their tracks and will hurt your sales.

 

Use this to take the "Welcome Please Sign In" Page and the "Account Created Success" Page out of your checkout process but still collect all their info and create an account or to "Sign In" if they already have an account.

As Homer Simpson would say "Doooooh!"

 

It was working earlier, don't know what happened, so here are the instructions

 

Open up checkout_payment.php and find:

 

// if the customer is not logged on, redirect them to the login page

if (!tep_session_is_registered('customer_id')) {

 $navigation->set_snapshot();

 tep_redirect(tep_href_link(FILENAME_LOGIN, '', 'SSL'));

}

 

Change it to:

 

// if the customer is not logged on, redirect them to the login page

if (!tep_session_is_registered('customer_id')) {

 $navigation->set_snapshot();

 tep_redirect(tep_href_link(FILENAME_CREATE_ACCOUNT, '', 'SSL'));

}

 

Then:

 

In checkout_shipping.php change:

 

tep_redirect(tep_href_link(FILENAME_LOGIN, '', 'SSL'));

 

 

To:

 

tep_redirect(tep_href_link(FILENAME_CREATE_ACCOUNT, '', 'SSL'));

 

 

and if you want to get rid of the "Account Created Success" window that pops up after they create their account do this:

 

In create_account.php

 

Change

tep_redirect(tep_href_link(FILENAME_CREATE_ACCOUNT_SUCCESS, '', 'SSL'));

 

to

 

tep_redirect(tep_href_link(FILENAME_CHECKOUT_SHIPPING, '', 'SSL'));

 

this will remove the thank you message after account creation to speed up checkout. You no longer see create_account_success.php, it goes right to shipping.

 

With this process you have just removed 2 steps from the lengthy cart process, and removed the Dreaded "Become a Member" Page that scares of potential customers, and you still get them to sign in and get them to create the account.

 

Is this great or what?

Thanks for all the comments & suggestions so far.

 

I wanted to remove steps in the checkout process but wasn't sure how to go about it. I'm going to add the changes today. Ksaun, thank you for taking the time to add the code changes to this post.

 

About the image thumbnails, I looked into using the thumbnail contrib...but .gif transparencies are not supported with the latest release. All images on Sassy were created as transparent .gifs to blend into the right and left column. But it's better to have a site that loads quickly!!!! Thanks for the thnumbnail suggestion UnrivaledPC.com & rommany.
