It wasn't working when I tried it for about 15 minutes and has now started working.

Nice looking site though now I can get to it.

Thanks for the reply.

Been having hosting problems the last 2 days. Not sure whether its time to move host. A bit reluctant, currently use flump.net and they do offer great help and support and rarely have problems.

Also dont want to take the risk of moving host to find out its still bad or lose search engine positions etc.

Hello Again,

Have made many more changes to the website at: www.stand-out.net

Still improving every day and can happily say generating lots and lots of sales daily.

Are there any suggestions from anyone?

Thanks.

Excellent job maildodge! One of the best xcart designs Ive seen so far. The usability is great also. Can I ask how do you get your homepage layout like that? I mean, with all those banners and brand logos randomly changing.

Thanks for your kind words. It has taken the 2 years of running our website for all the changes to come together, we are still making them everyday. Tiny improvements help dramatically.

The designer labels are done by using a promo manager, not too sure whos it is but works great. We add the labels in the admin and they randomly show on the homepage. Same with the banner at the top on every page. This is quite an old mod and not to sure who it is from, a search will probably pull it up: Promo Manager.

The larger images below are from Firetanks featured product mod, it has been customised so it shows the medium detailed image and shows random on products selected in admin.

The new in and bestsellers below is also done by Firetanks featured product, this time showing the thumbnail and random products from ones entered in admin.

Any other questions or advise on our website is appreciated.

Thanks.

Very nice website

I'm new to X-Cart and was wondering if you could tell me what the drop down category menus are ?

Are they standard x-cart or a mod ?

Have you thought about centering the website ?

I am veiwing it on a 24" LCD and there is a HUGE amount of empty space to the right.

Thanks for your comments. We have centered it before but it just didnt look right. I have seen it on a widescreen laptop and like you said there is a large ammount of space on the right hand side. This does seem common amongst many websites now but maybe is something we can change.

The category and designer drop down boxes were done by the x-cart tech team, i paid for the custom work. They are actually working on some improvements at the moment where ti refreshes to a new static page, with new title etc. Also adding a browse by price and also it remember each selection and you can select from all drop downs to narrow the results. Best to speak to them if you want it done.

Thanks.

Hey, Maildodge, How can you put the bestsellers section to a link such as bestsellers.html? That's exactly what I want. What is the content of the HTML file?
BTW. what is Firetanks featured product? I googled it and found nothing related to those words.

Hi,

Well we created a static page that loads up the bestsellers (featured products) we generate the bestsellers and it is not automatic. I am sure you would be able to play around and get it automatic if you want.

Or again the Firetank featured product mod will do that for you. More info is on their site: http://www.firetanksoftware.com/fts/customer/Featured-Product-Manager-for-x-cart-pid-146.html

But you will find lots of posts about it in the forums.
