Wizardtech online store
Posted 27 July 2010 - 05:15 AM
Let me just say that my store is certainly a work in progress. I've put a lot of work into it already, but I've got a lot more to go. I'm posting this to form sort of a checklist of things I need to do, change, etc.. that you all can hopefully help me with.
The store is here http://www.wiztechonline.com/store
I've incorporated quite a few mods from the community that I am grateful for. Thank you!
Some of the other stores I've seen in this thread are very impressive. I almost decided not to post mine because it isn't quite as complex as some I've seen, but it could always get that way if I keep working on it!
thanks for your time!

I am not a coder, so dont bother sending PMs asking for help as you wont get any.
OSC has a steep learning curve, but in general the program does work. If it doesnt work, the chances are it is something you have done.

Here are some of the things I found on your website:
- Your shopping cart is messed up. It shows 0 0 items and when you add an item to the cart is shows 1 0 items
- Clicking on the Banners opens a new Tab or Window, this is going to cause OSCID errors upon checkout.
- The Woopra tab on the bottom blocks content and only leads customers AWAY from your site to a selling page for the Woopra service. (DUMP IT, use a transparent tracking service)
- Some of the links do not have buttons, reviews, continue shopping and continue links are dwarfed by the large red buttons that are showing the image. If you are going to have large red buttons, then all links should have the same buttons.
- Since you only accept US Funds, there really is no need for a currency drop down box.
- You can more than likely remove the British Flag from your site as well. It looks lonely up in the top right corner.
- HERE IS THE MOST IMPORTANT CHANGE YOU NEED TO MAKE !!! ADD THE SECURITY CHANGES FROM THE FOLLOWING THREADS OR YOUR SITE WILL GET HACKED !!!

Since my first post:
- Security: SQL Injection protection (securitypro)
- Security: Secured admin area with a password, and renamed folder
- Security: Removed file_manager.php and define_language.php from admin folder
- Visual: New layout and graphics
- Functional: Shopping cart double digit issue fixed
- Functional: Banners do not open new windows
- Functional: Woopra removed (I still use it for tracking. It's really good, but the chat thing is kinda lame)
- Functional: Currency options removed (USD only)
- Functional: Languages removed (English only)
- Performance: Removed mods that I tried but didn't end up using
- Performance: SEO URL cache set to 1 day. (default is 7 days and it was really making the site slow.)
