Please Review My New Store

Recommended Posts

WARNING: To people that would be offended by the nature of my products on this website and if your under age 18 PLEASE DO NOT REVIEW!!

 

Im still in the process in adding more products, so besides that what do you think of this website? I have seen the rotator banner on a few computers with older I.E versions not fill the whole banner box.. Let me know if you see the same thing. Thanks in advance.

The front page and category pages feel cluttered and restrictive to me. Way too many things to look at and not enough white space. Go look at some of the top online retailers and compare their appearance. Get rid of any column boxes that aren't absolutely necessary. A single column is best.

 

In contrast to your cluttered front page and categories, your product pages are rather boring. The long side columns make them look empty. Some HTML in some of the descriptions would make them read better. Many people will not read single long paragraph, but will read one-two sentence paragraphs or bullet lists. Again, go look at the top retailers.

 

Get rid of the "This website is optimized for use with FireFox web browser". Nobody cares, except the ones who get offended.

 

The colors of your template don't match your logo at all. Since this is apparently based on osC 2.3.1, use Themeroller to make a theme that matches your logo colors.

 

I like the search box and its location. The header layout is good. I would change the Free Shipping banner to make it stand out a bit more, and again match the colors to your store.

 

I had to read your legal statement to find out where you are located, and the Contact US page for a phone number. Leave those where they are, but add an About Us page with that information. Customers will feel more comfortable doing business with you if they know more about you, and this information needs to be easy to find.

 

Regards

Jim

Thank you for your honest opinion, this was exactly what i was looking for! I have made several changes contrary to what you suggested. I still need someone to design a better looking free shipping image and create a About Us page.

 

Thanks, Michael

 

P.S, There have been over 150 views to this thread!! Dont be shy people, tell me what you think. I wont be offended if you give negative feedback just be honest.

As for me, it is usual adult store, but i think you should change logo, it absolutely does not meet the subjects of the site.

I would like to see something more creative, interesting and sparkling. :-" :-" :-"

Michael,

 

The Site Review Policy states you must have 'Powered by Oscommerce' in the footer of your store to receive member feedback. Further, the GPL that was supplied with your download of v2.3.1 states you must keep 'Powered by Oscommerce' in the footer unless you significantly modify the layout of the cart so it can not be identified as an Oscommerce store. IMO, you have not qualified to be able remove that tag.

hey it looks good, easy to navigate and you have plenty of products. My only issue is your top toolbar with the red text is a bit sore on the eyes, perhaps use white text instead as it looks much nicer when you go to select it and it changes to white

I can't enlarge your images, they have the wrong path and give this message

 

The requested content cannot be loaded.

Please try again later.

 

It tries to open the image with this path which is wrong:

http://w w w.yoursite. c o m/catalog/images/h t t p://images.site.com/FR/XXXXX.JPG

Thank you for noticing. Ever since I modified EZ Population this happen. Problem is im not sure where to go to fix. I had to edit html_output.php so that the shop would pull images from wholesalers website. Any help with would be appreciated.

 

// The HTML image wrapper function
 function tep_image($src, $alt = '', $width = '', $height = '', $parameters = '') {
if ( (empty($src) || ($src == DIR_WS_IMAGES)) && (IMAGE_REQUIRED == 'false') ) {
 	return false;
}
// check to see if image is external or internal (check for http) and modify $src
if ( substr($src,strlen(DIR_WS_IMAGES),4) == 'http') {
$src = substr($src,(strlen(DIR_WS_IMAGES)));
}
