2.3.1 Version of my site

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Just converted my old 2.2MS to osc 2.3.1 and I like it, there will be more customization as soon as more contributions become available.

 

I feel that the product images are loading slow, is this my connection or?

 

Please advise

The red bars are a bit garish. I'd tone it down a bit. You have BOX_INFORMATION_CONTACT | BOX_INFORMATION_CONDITIONS | BOX_INFORMATION_PRIVACY | BOX_INFORMATION_SHIPPING hiding in the upper right corner. They're the same color as the background so they don't show, but they are stretching out the right margin. Not a bad start, but you still have work to do.

 

Now I need to dig out all of my old vinyl and see what I've forgotten I own.

 

Regards

Jim

Jim,

 

The red color was to add a bit Christmas feeling to it and will go away after Christmas.

 

What did you think about the image load time?

 

Cheers

Image load was fine for me, but I'm on a relatively fast connection. Best to find someone who has slower access.

 

I tend to forget about Christmas themes unless forcibly reminded. Perhaps you could add a reminder, like the number of shopping days left, or just a "Merry Christmas." Or not.

 

Regards

Jim

You haven't really done much, it looks like a standard install with a few css changes. Can you chop up the structure of the site a bit to make it look less osCommercey.

Hi Burt,

 

I'm thinking about using one of your templates to get away from it as you say, do you more templet's in the works?

Yes - and if you let me know the style of site you like, something could be done about it :thumbsup:

Hi Paul,

 

Yes, you do ! Your hosting provider is on my banned list. I had several hack attempts from the UK last month and was forced to ban more than 50 IP's and a dozen ISP's from the UK.

 

Sorry.

The HTML shows:

Thank you all,

 

I will figure out a new layout after the holidays when things start to calm down a bit.

 

How do I adjust the right margin? It's way to big after the PayPal Verified contribution

 

Cheers
