Smile Template/Skin update for an x-cart 4 store

We are close to going live with an upgrade of a skin on an X-Cart 4 store. This skin utilises Bootstrap 3 and is responsive across desktop, tablet and mobile.

The snagging alone on this store has taken close to 30 hours development work.

Would be grateful if you could give me your feedback on the site which includes a custom calculator for generating the product price. There are a number of products and links that look strange and this gets resolved when the store goes live as product data on the live store determines a lot of the stylng.

Old site http://www.theplasticshop.co.uk
New site http://www.theplasticshop.co.uk/testsite/home.php?shopkey=5372

Default Re: Template/Skin update for an x-cart 4 store

I would change the blue in the footer with white or similar
The menu with white on blue is good but the hover is black - hard to see on the blue background
Contact us page looks empty on the right
http://www.theplasticshop.co.uk/testsite/sample-request-3360-0.html - alignment issue in "samples" section
The breadcrumbs being black on blue - change it
Login popup shows error messages element - you are missing css styles - they are in main.css
Breadcrumbs blue strip and menu strip have different height on different pages - http://www.theplasticshop.co.uk/testsite/help.php?section=Password_Recovery vs http://www.theplasticshop.co.uk/testsite/acrylic-mirrors-mega-menu-link.html
I never thought of this before but if the site allows only GB as country - recoding country element on checkout page to be text field instead of dropdown will look way better, and make it disabled so text cannot be changed
The store uses this old XC ugly messages that show at the top right corner - consider changing this
Sheet downloads on this page - http://www.theplasticshop.co.uk/testsite/ultem-pei-1000-polyetherimide-rod-sheet.html - return 404 error
Some links in the footer link to same page as "#"

Hope that helps

Thanks for the feedback. Never liked these message and pretty tricky to restyle, but will give it a go
