You must add this line if you wish to receive feedback.

I'm awfully sorry I hadn't seen the rules above that the site needs to mention "Powered by osCommerce" to recieve feedback. It was not done on purpose as I usually stick to the French osc forum in which these rules have not been implemented.

 

Feedback is very important to me and I just thought I could rely on the osc community which has greatly helped me out during my worst web nightmares :).

Thanks a lot

I personally do not like the wood effect. It does not match up exactly so it looks a bit out of place (match between the header area and your content area).

 

I think you do not need to have a column in the left hand side? It only seems to contain "tell a friend" - which is next to useless - add that in the product description instead? And the shopping cart, which can just as easily be placed elsewhere - header maybe?

 

The menu system you are using does not match the "style".

 

You also have problems with the infoboxes in Firefox.

 

Overal though, it's ten times better than most of the stores I see on this forum.

Here you go:

 

1. Sessions arguement on homepage (already mentioned)

 

2. Images are large and squished into small holders. Use a contribution that allows you to have a small image on the page and a larger preview image. This will reduce your load times massively and improve your layout quality. See my site for an example with Lightbox: DataMouse.biz

 

3. On your hover navbar, the header writing disappears. Is it going white? Maybe just grey it out so you can still see what channel/category you're hovering on.

 

4. Product info page descriptions. You have a bulleted list that you've manually typed. Use HTML to bullet it correctly:

<ul>

<li>Item1</li>

<li>Item2</li>

<li>etc...</li>

</ul>

 

5. Logo in top left should hyperlink back to the root/homepage

 

6. Conditions, Privacy and Shipping info are all blank

 

7. I like the layout - nice wooden effect.

 

Hope that this helps

^_^

It's a bit like Marmite really...I knew I was taking a risk;)

I'm using dynamenu and I'm trying to find out how you can replace the category text with images...I went in the appropriate post but have not yet received a reply. It's a bit "out of place" indeed.

 

I think you do not need to have a column in the left hand side?

I ought to put something in there as I'd like really like to keep it. I understand it looks naked and useless but maybe a couple of infoboxes could do the trick. Or I'll take your advice and get rid of it...you've made me think now!

Thanks for that! I've changed it to grey.

Much better!

 

I'm working on all the rest.

Really appreciated. Thanks again!

Change the hover navbar highlighted text to the blue in the background?

 

Put your SSL badge / pay via paypal / we accept the following payments etc in the empty bar on the left hand side?

 

Nice professional looking site though :D
