Nice site, dont forget to add a privacy notice page and a shipping & returns one as well.

 

Well done and good luck.

 

I've added a few things and updates as per suggestion.

 

I would still like to get some other "Food for thought"

Any comments & feedback would be greatly appreciated. :D

You have the usual problem that comes with buying in a template - hardcoded http links in the header to pages that should be https.

 

By the way - when you put your work up for review it should be your work and not a template you just bought in.

Like Vger, I'm not a fan of templates and all. Sure, they look flashy, etc., but as far as functionality, ease of altering files, SEO (search engine optimization), and contribution installation, they have several drawbacks. I'm not telling you to take your template down. I'm just letting you know that my following suggestions may or may not, depending on this template system, be easy or difficult:

 

- Install PWA -- Purchase Without Account. I don't wanna go to you site for a carbon cartridge and have to fill out all kinds of personal information, subject myself to SPAM, etc., etc., just to buy a cartridge. I wanna plug in my credit card numbers and see my cartridge at my doorstep in the upcoming days, period. Purchase WIthout Account ...

 

- Install Ultimate SEO URL's ... this will get rid of the dynamic cpath/products_id links, and replace them with static .html links that have keywords in them. I understand that bots can now spider dynamic pages, etc., but I still think this would be a mandated contribution to install (and don't forget the "additional installation instructions" when you install it: Ultimate SEO URL's ...

 

- You already have some form of Header Tags Controller in there, unique page titles, and that's important for SEO, so that's good.

 

- Godaddy SSL. Like Vger said, you're going to have to find out where the following pages have their hardcoded http:// links and change them to https:// .... links such as login, create_account, account.php (my account), checkout, etc.; pages that require critical data encryption. You want the data encrypted, so it's like 233*********, and that's what SSL does for you. I don't know where you'd find this in a template -- I guess includes/header.php. As of now, you're falsely advertising that you have SSL by putting the godaddy site seal on your pages, when in fact nothing is protected by SSL -- yet.
