Default Site Review - After a year in development ...

After a long year in development we have just launched our re-designed x-cart (4.4.2) site.

Please criticise heavily so we can improve and perfect the site.

Curtains and Curtains UK

There are a few things we are yet to improve on like the refine search, site content, etc... but most of it is done.

Front-end Main Features:
* Ajax category display with thumbnail size change
* Advanced search and Refine search
* Redesigned Static Pages (content pending)
* Redesigned FAQ
* Redesigned Bestsellers page
* Multiple product page templates (various additional fields)
* Product page image zoom and slideshow.
* Redesigned My Account section
* Redesigned Cart and Checkout
* Ajax Mini-Cart
* And more ...

Admin section:
* Redesigned the orders list section heavily (see attachment)
* Custom notes


Let me know if you need any more information.

Front page loads relatively fast. Any other page in IE takes about 2-3 minutes to load, FF is like 10 sec. on some pages - 2 min on others.... Product quick view popup just spins, never loaded. Same with add to cart

Site barely loads at all for me, just spins and spins. Google PageSpeed is giving it a 64/100, so something is clearly amiss.

Thank you for the feedback.

Google Webmaster agree's with your comments. Since site launch the speed is greatly affected.

Will look into this further. Your comments greatly appreciated.

Agreed, the site is VERY nice to look at but also very slow. Ran this page test on the homepage - doesn't look like you have any sort of compression enabled, and none of the CSS or javascript is minified.

http://www.webpagetest.org/result/120425_S6_43670/

We've spent a lot of resources to get our page speed down, from going to a great hosting company (Hands-On) with a dedicated server, to adding CloudFlare as a CDN. That plus turning on the various speed-up options in X-Cart have made a huge difference in page speed.
