I like the grunge style of your design. When I click on my account I am getting the "This page contains secure and nonsecure items" error. Also the British flag is not necessary in your header if you only have english as a language option.

Thanks Andrew. I thought the 'secure items..' dialog box was the result of switching to a https page (& therefore inevitable). Do you or anyone know if I can modify my config & get around it? Am I wrong assuming it's necessary?

 

& Yes, I agree about the English language icon. It shold be removed since it's the only option. I've been planning to add a spanish version & left the language link there as a place holder.

 

Thanks!!

Great looking design, nice work! My suggestions:

  • Your buy now button should be the easiest to spot on the page. Right now it's a tiny little cart icon smaller than all other buttons.
  • Lose the flash banner on every page. In IE I'm required to "click to active this content" to view it in IE and it's just pushing down the information I'm interested in on the product pages. Also, that's probably where the insecure item warning is coming from on the login page.


Please use the forums for support! I am happy to help you here, but I am unable to offer free technical support over instant messenger or e-mail.

Thank you for the feedback. The buy now button could be a bit bigger/more noticable.. also considering adding a splash screen / front page with frequently updated content to encourage return visitors. If they aren't attracted by the buy now button, I at least would like to keep them on the site as long as possible.

To get arround the SSL error you must find the source of the error. Most likely you have an image (or a frame or some other content on the page) that is not under a https:// url.

 

The browser is warning that you are pulling SOMETHING required to display the page from non-secure sites (http:// - i.e. non-SSL connection to the server instead of https://).

 

You can view source and search for http:// and you'll likely spot it quickly, most likely you just want to use a relative URL, like /images/_ instead of http://__/images which will cause this warning.

 

I find this error occurs often when sites use remotely hosted banner images. If that is the case try http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contri...ons,3690/page,2

Hi,

 

it is a really nice site and I think the layout fits perfectly to the stuff you sell.

Personally I like the background.

Only when I watched your logo it reminds me very much of the logo from the

german football magazine http://kicker.de/ , which is the most popular one in Germany.

I do not know if this will be a problem, but I think changing it would be a good idea.

 

:-"

 

 

All the rest is really good,

nice work,

 

Keep it up,

 

Delta

very nice looking site, an os commerce template from template monster or some such if i'm not mistaken (i should know cos i'm using 1 myslef :blush: )

 

a common problem with templates is that tho they look nice the text tends to be too small and and theres often not enuff contrast between the text and the bg, also this design seems too narrow (tho widening it would mean u also had to widen the flash movie)
