Hi there!

 

Yeah, pretty well done.

Your design looks like a very good job to me.

The boxes, the headlines, the header ... everything is pretty good.

 

Your integration of DHTML (or is it just Java?) on the left menu is so cool.

How did you do it?

Is it linked to the data base?

I mean, in case you create a new category or make any modification from the Admin Control Panel, will it show up in your left menu automatically?

 

I also like very much your "Log In" box on the right side.

Is it some kind of Contribution you've plugged into your OSC?

I would like to put it in my site too. Please, message me, ok?

 

But I guess you are also asking for things that we think could be improved, so here are my thoughts:

 

- Images with white background: many stores like yours that have 99.9% of the product images with white background I would think of using white background also on those boxes where the pictures are shown, like the "Nuovi Prodotti di giugno", "Novita'" or "Recensioni" boxes, etc.

It will look much better in my opinion.

Another solution would be to give them a 1 pixel gray or silver border that would change to green with a mouse over effect for instance.

 

- I don't like at all the icons that OSC comes with by default. I mean those ugly icons that come for instance in the "Agiornami" and "Recensioni" boxes.

Those never fit with the designing effort that all of us do on our OSC projects, don't you think?

I'm getting rid of them in my site ... i really hate them. :)

 

Just delete them or make your own.

I bet the web will look even more professional.

 

Just one more thing: when you try to "Log In" the form comes out with a pale blue background color ... hummm, I think a pale green or silver would fit better with your design.

 

That's all.

Congratulations for your work!

Very nice indeed. But I can't see any menu, as the catalog switches automatically to English and many links are broken. Perhaps you should delete the English part and run it only in your language.

how did you get your info boxes to have the tab look i like that and was wondering if you would share how you were able to do this

On the stylesheet.css, if you change

background:  #00ff00;

or whatever to

background-image: url("images/whatever.gif");

it uses an image for the background rather than a color.

 

Look here for some examples.

 

Good luck,

Matt

Nice site. I like it...

 

Have a quick question for you: I am trying to do what you have done with the bottom of the info boxes. I am trying to get an image to line up with the sides....but it isn't working. I am including a pic and the code....please let me know what you think.

 

Thanks in advance.

-Chris

This looks pretty simple. This is the last few lines of the code you have posted. Notice on the first line quoted you are closing your table with cellspacing/padding=0 and starting a new table with your bottom line graphic using a default cellspacing/padding (either 1 or 2) this is throwing the bottom graphic out of position.

 

</TR></table><table>

<tr>

<td align="left"><img src="images/boxes/bottom.gif"></td>

</tr>

</table>

 

</td>

</tr>

Change the first line to:

</TR>

as there is no need to start a new table.

I think you need to make the <td width="#" hight="#"> a forced size in the borders setting. This will usually work for what you are trying to do. It also helps to set border="1" in your table to see if it is fitting snug to your pics. I haven't tried to do it myself, but it is always a problem when I do borders by hand.
