osCommerce

The e-commerce.

My New Look.

Marginally faster load time for me. Having each page as one jpg means there's no improvement on load times for subsequent pages. The look itself is nice, but you'll lose customers if you don't do something to improve the load time.

Also, I couldn't see the osCommerce logo, or 'powered by owcommerce' in your footer with all the others - PHP, SQL, etc :?

It is there (Powered by Oscommerce), you want to look in the packages page, at the bottom. Not all the pages are Powered by Oscommerce :D .

 

Will sort out the load time, Adobe said 74 secs for a 28k, it's telling porkys. Will reduce to moz.

 

Cheers,

 

Neil.

Perhaps you could post the direct link, so we can give you our opinions without having to wait for the page to load, click, wait for another page.....

 

thank you :D

Now that bit loads faster. :-)

 

The default images really don't go with your site. You could look for the 'non-cartoonish' images contribution to replace them.

 

The product listing colours (green & blue) don't seem right, perhaps the white & pale blue from your footer would look better?

 

The product images on the homepage draw the eye away from the text too much, since you're not actually selling what's in the picture. The images themselves are nice, so perhaps you need to balance them with a stronger or larger font?

 

Make 'terms & conditions' * your co. name inthe footer image clickable.

 

Remove the 'click to enlarge' on your product images.

 

Buttons are nice, though I'm not sure the green goes. Perhaps pick a blue from your header image?

 

hth

 

:D

Somehow your header and the rest of the shop are not matching. You should make the category headers in the same style and color as your header, that would help a lot.

 

Same to the footer

 

Monster templates are nice, but too big;-)

Thankyou for the advice.

 

The web pages are not a Monster Template. The whole site was designed by myself, from scratch.

 

And it's all to do with personal taste, lol.

 

The link at the bottom for the Terms And Conditions I will do, forgot about that, :P

 

Regards,

 

 

Neil.

You'll have to tone down the cushion effect on some of those images in the header - I'll bet that only a very slight cushion (if any at all!) will look a whole lot better.

 

I agree with "Director of projects" the main site content isn't matching the header.

 

The footer graphic is jagged and will need a shadow dropping down onto the text area below for it to match the header - or something.... some of the lines in the header are jagged as well....

 

What about redesigning the header so that it's only about half as big as it is now - if it's not a monster template - it has the same 'big' drawback as one....

 

Sorry for being perhaps overly critical - I haven't had enough coffee yet this morning ! - and I've just completely messed up a design I've spend three days working on :x!

May I start off by saying 'A big thankyou to all of you, who, have made comments on the web site'.

 

Changes are being made as you read this, e.g. - the footer, the product piccys, etc.

 

The header I like and therefore I'm not changing.

 

Thankyou, :bigups:

 

Neil.
