Guitar leads website

Hi there, feedback welcome for my site >> The Leads Factory

 

Any thoughts on colour / logo / layout / pics etc.

 

It is a centered site using coolmenus. I have used the products attributes to enable customers to choose lead lengths, to do this the postage and cost had to be worked out on each length. bit of a nightmare to start with, but once i got used to adding the prices directly into the products attributes sql txt and having added the sort order contribution it seemd to be working out ok.

 

Please no order testing - Live site

 

Thankyou

Overall, I like it... simple but very effective.

 

Install a thumbnail contribution - your product thumbs are approx 30k

The blue border around image links looks strange, remove it using CSS.

I personally find the drop down boxes a little overwhelming... can this be done more simply?

Customise the magnifying glass icon

Remove the language box (only one language)

Remove the no. of requests bar

Do you need reviews, bestsellers etc?

 

Good luck

nice site, I've tried to post my new poll but it doesn't seem to come up. I'm new to all this. So, what do I click on to post my comments in my store section? Thanks

Try ?ADDREPLY? at the bottom, unless you want to quote.

 

Thanks for more comments and for the comps mike. I don?t seem to have a problem in IE or Firefox either, I wonder what that?s about.

 

I realized that with coolmenus there may be a few compromises, like having your browser refresh when you resize or add favourites etc to the window. It does this to make sure the menu is in the right place, I am hoping that not that many people will be resizing their window more than once anyway.

 

From a design point of view, designing mainly static sites, I find people either love or hate dynamic menus. Coolmenus have addressed things like resize positioning from when I used to use it a couple of years back, im happy with it.

Your "cool" menu isn't so cool - it causes horrible refreshes in IE, and is totally broken in Firefox.

 

 

Works fine for me in both Firefox 1.0.4 and IE 6, no problems at all.

 

You obviously haven't tried resizing the screen then.

This is really bad - there must be a better option.

The repositioning does not work at all in Firefox for me - eg if I go from a normalized to maximized screen, the menu is left floating there.

//--> </script>

 

There are better scripts out there than this!!!

It is broken in Firefox. Definantly install a thumbnail contrib, your images are 27kb+ each. I would also try to optimize the header image a bit too.
