If you have a high-res display at your disposal, maximise your browser window and view the site at 1600x1200. There are some wonky things going on where all your content is not centred. Like on the homepage, your content is centred, but your navbar is over to the left. On the product pages, your header and footer seem to be centred okay, but your content is over to the left.

Your "Free shipping" sign at the bottom of the pages is very aliased. Try using less compression when saving the jpg.

Ah, I see. About the content being centred, it looks like on some pages, the content is fully centred, but on others, it's centred between the left margin and the model in the lower right corner of every page. This gives the impression that it's over to the left a little, though not all the way up against the left margin.

Thank you for your reply.... Bt any chance, is the browser your using firefox. i do know that some odd things happen with firefox, such as the tables shifting. You can actually refresh the page and firefox will redraw it each time....

And what site were you reviewing? there are 2.

http://girlfriendslingerie.com and http://ymproducts.com

Girlfriendslingerie seems to be the oddest with firefox as GFL is altered the most via plugins and such

Thanks again for the heads up

Hi there, sorry for not providing enough info. I was viewing ymproducts.com and yes, I'm using Firefox 1.5.0.3 on XP.

I haven't read through the other reviews since I'm rushed for time, but your thumbnail images are in dire need of rescue at the ymproducts site

Your html is improperly sizing the images, either by accident or by design...it doesn't matter...it needs to be fixed.

You can fix either by using a graphics program to physically resize the necessary images, or correct the html code...it looks simply amateurish as it stands.

The site at girlfriendslingerie.com is far superior in design and execution.

i've extremly similar sites, and all have the same or almost same color scheme as for the design itself very well done.

i like the site and the way it was designed.
checked in mozilla firefox looked ok, will check in IE netscape and msn explorer later but all looks good :)

Hello,

Your site doesnt look bad. I like the menu on the top ,the simple design and the colors. But it is a bit slow to load. I dont reall like the pics they look as if they were scanned from an old catalog if you can improve that would look better. Keep working.

Hello all....

Did some new stuff on both sites.

i wasnt exactly sure on what the the issue was on the thumbnails on http://ymproducts.com if you could eelaborate that would be very helpful.

As for the speed issue, i changed just hosts..as the other one was dragging me down big time.

The big issue here is, if you have a miva store, get a host that not only suppots miva, yet are at the same time profesionals at it.

Anyways, as always if you have any opinions, please let me know.

the sites again are

http://www.girlfriendslingerie.com and http://www.ymproducts.com

thanks

Dan

EDIT. Ready 911 please elaborate on the pics, what site are you referring too? And if its just a few pics, which ones are you looking at?

Here is a screen shot of the left sidebar.

Now here is that same image when HTML is NOT used to resize it.

IMHO, using code to resize any image is a really, really bad idea...especially if it gets resized into unrealistic proportions.

Well here we are again...... since the last time major changes. Color schemes, wish list, and so much more.

For those who recal a comparison from the past would be great and appreciated..

and for the new views, any comments, suggestions..good or bad is welcome.

And on the end for seo purposes, how does ut look...seems im doing ok in most engines, yet google hates me..as it has in its cache only old links that have been defunct for many month now.... i just cant figure that out..

anyways the site is http://www.girlfriendslingerie.com

thanks in advance

Rule 4: Please make only one unique request. If you need further feedback post on your original.

Can a mod please merge this with the original thread?

http://www.ozzu.com/ftopic58361.html

Also you have TWO sites in the original thread - you must post unique domains in different threads, just gets messy otherwise :roll:

You might want to find out the reasons why your index page is generating 104 errors :shock:

A lot of your display issues are likely as a result of you not validating your code.

No, w3.org is now showing 123 errors.
http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=www.girlfriendslingerie.com

You STILL haven't even addressed the issue of not even having a document type declaration....and thats a no brainer of an error.

Many of the errors are to do with the cart system code....you can't change that, but more than a few are simple code errors that should have been fixed the last time it was brought to your attention....and then again when you attempted to make other changes to your site.
