osCommerce

The e-commerce.

Automated & Special Machinery Alley (ASMA)

I still have a long way to go with the adding of all my categories. But what I like is that osCommerce, out of the box, looks like the rest or my site.

 

I have:

4 Postnukes (multisites) all tied together.

3 osCommerce sharing tables, sessions will be completed in a few days.

1 Job Board

1 Contractors Board

2 RSS Feeds into Postnuke from osCommerce.

100's of other features and functions.

This week I'll be completing the rgistration process, one registration and you will be registered in all applications.

My site is very simple in nature, but effective.

Don't forget to send your buddy an Ecard!

 

Thanks, JohnnyO http://www.techrealms.com/automation

New & ideas wanted

 

Is that a typo?

 

Very busy site, I found it hard to figure out what I was supposed to read first. You look to have a lot of content, so if your users can figure out how to get around you should do well.

 

Good luck. :wink:

Re: New & ideas wanted

I don't know if it's a typo or not, my english language skills are terrible.

I should have someone take a look at what I've written.

Thankyou very much for your input.

I think your right, the site is busy, I'll work on that today

 

Thankyou

John

Not to rain on your parade, but for your target market, you need to dumb it down.

 

I work with several machining/engineering shops and I know the clientele.

 

Keep it simple!

 

Thats just my .000002 cents ;)

I'm not sure waht you mean by dumb it down. ???

 

Generally speaking the machinery is bought by Procurement Specialists & Buyers who have taken this path from Applications Engineering.

As far as the Components, they are generally specified by the Project Engineer who have taken this path from Lead Design Electrical or Mechanical Engineer. As far as Services, they are generally specified by the Machine/Equipment Designer.

 

In no way am I trying to be argumentive, Infact I appreciate your input, I'm just trying to understand where I should dumb this down.

 

Respectfully Yours,

John

When I said dumb it down, I was referring to letting the eyes find something to stick to..

 

Your site is way to busy. Way to much info.

 

You did a good job of breaking down the seperate people looking at things on your site, what I guess I'm saying is; think about a way for each of those types of customers to find the information they are looking for easily. Instead of having everything on one page and letting people find it, possibly categorize is differently to make the information more readily available.

 

Does that make sense? I mean my .00000002 really dont matter here :)

I'm going to take a little off it. I created another Postnuke (multisite) last night. This site is whrer the all the product catagories and product news will start. So I will get rid of all those links that you see now and move them to the new multisite. (distribute content more evenly).

 

One thing to keep in mind, and I failed to mention, the url that I've given is really the backend of my site, multiple osCommerces are the frontends. The backend is a place for people to visit daily, mostly the same people, members. It doesnt take long to know where everything is.

 

Case in point. Visit the most successful Postnuke & othe CMS site:

http://portalzine.de For those of you not familiar with Portalzine check it out.

 

Thanks John

 

By the way, If anyone needs one hell of a PHP programmer, MagicX from Germany at Portalzine would be a good choice. When I need something complex done he usually responds with something like "this is going to be a big project" the difference is it's usually done in an hour or less.

In the left menu there is a Link:

Check-Out The A.S.M.A Machinery, Components & Services Portals

 

This now goes to the multisite I added last night. This works out very well. I now have a place for Services, Components and Machinery with News and Reviews and other stuff.

 

I want to thank the people who posted here helping me steer this in the right direction. I will now finish all the categories with pics knowing fundamentally what I've created is somewhat satisfactory.

 

Thanks again,

John
