This is my first stab at Magento, please give me your honest thoughts. If you hate it tell me, if you like it tell me.
You may find a broken link or two, but for the most part everything should work. There are very few products because the store is not live yet and some categories do not have products yet.
I started with the blank Magento template and just did some basic styling.
Things I have noticed are the fieldset and legend tags, and I threw Chris’s slider on the homepage until I get the time to write my own.
Yeah, that one pixel thing I can only get in Firefox 3, I don’t know what is causing that. I’ll look into it further.
Unfortunately, after a lot of headaches, I restyled the site for Zen Cart. I really liked Magento, but there were just too many issues that we were running into. So for now, I went with reliability. But I would love to see Magento become more stable.
Thanks for the kind words everyone.
I’d really like to see more pictures of the tiles ‘in-situ’ as the current pictures of the tiles don’t really do justice to the final product. It wasn’t until I had a good look at the kitchen picture on the homepage that I went "Wow those are nice".
Also, is there any way to make ordering the sample kits easier. Perhaps having two options on the product page – "Add to Cart" and "Order a Sample" – would be more intuitive than the current system?
I am working hard on that, I think that my only option is to make a duplicate item for every single product we have and place a link to it on the product page. I am working very hard to come up with a different method for ordering samples, because the current method is just not efficient. Zen Cart works great, but some things just aren’t built in.
Sorry to get off topic
We don’t have a brick and mortar showroom, just a warehouse and office. We are selling online only. That’s why you can’t find us, no retail. :D
