dreamscape

Finally complete enough to show the public

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

Finally I have my new site finished enough to show to the OSC community. I've been working hard, and I know it's not *quite* finished yet. We are going live next weekend, so between now and then I will be adding the rest of our products in and cleaning up any odds and ends that I've missed.

 

Really did alot of work on this one... stripping out alot of OSC's "extra" features, adding in some of my own, and so forth to make the site operate very smoothly.

 

Please feel free to look around and try things out. I have a test account set up for anyone who would like to use it:

login: tester@madmacgames.com

pass: tester

Thank you all for your time.

Don't know if this is what you are looking for, but...

From stuff in that thread, I was able to make it so that if you click on create an account, you don't see the login boxes, but if you go to the checkout and you are not logged it, you will see the login boxes and the create account boxes on the same page. :)

V nice. Good work. Stuff to think about:

 

Shopping Cart - why have it showing if it's empty ?

Categories - I always like this above the "fold" in the page

checkout_shipping.php - if chosen to pay by Check/MO, there is no name to make it payable to.

 

 

Excellent info on the Product Pages - when I'm buying I like to read, then read some more. Then maybe buy...so yours is good.

 

I like your Print Order page. Is that something you've coded up yourself ?

 

Overall, very very nice. My main concern would be load time for 56k ?

thanks for the comments burt... when the site goes live, we will not be accepting Check/MO. its just turned on right now to enable testing the checkout and such.

 

the print order page was originally the "Print Receipt" contribution, and then I changed the layout to my liking, and also put a link to it on the checkout success page.

that's a good question burt, the more I think about it...

 

yes it makes sense to me know... I've changed the cart info box to show if there is something in the cart or if the user is logged in... thanks for the suggestion.

Hey I just went and checked things out... not sure if it's just my connection over to you or not but things were loading *VERY* slow (Images)

 

I'm pulling though a full oc48 here on a sunday...

 

Nice layout, colors and everything :)

Beautiful site. I too prefer to have the category links above the fold, but your layout is clean and very nice to look at.

 

The one problem that I came across is that the table seems to breakdown and spread out when I'm logged on and I go to the "My Profile" page.

 

It happens on my PC in both IE 6.0 and Netscape 7.0

Looking good. I think you have managed to capture the Mac look and feel without making a direct copy of it, well done.


Always be nice to other people, you never know when you might need something from them...

thanks mark... was a problem with the table when no purchases had been made... I've been testing on my own account which I've made some test purchases on, so I didn't catch it..

 

thanks for pointing it out... should be fixed now.

yes phpmyadmin ran an automatic update and some people were on the site at the time, thus corrupting that table.

 

luckily it happened to a friend just minutes before it happened to me and I pulled the structure of the whos_online table to send to him so he could get his back up... then it happened to me a few minutes later... lol

also your shopping cart (which is not suppose to show when empty) appears back once you add product and remove from the cart

 

Example: when i loaded the site, shopping cart was not visible. as soon as i added product it appeared in the left column, but when i removed the product from the cart, it didnt disappear

 

am i making sens?
