My "store" is finally done! I would really like your constructive criticism on how the site is laid out. In particular, can you please look at

1. My "pop-up" menu when you hover over the "Store"

2. My catalogue

3. My product list.

4. My navigation menu

Since this store is a "business" - I really need to ensure it comes across as being professional and aesthetically looks pleasing to the eye. Is there anything I need to add or remove? Your comments/criticism will really help me to improve.

Here's my site:

Hi Lee

The tooltips are on the homepage. They work fine in FF but don't show up at all in IE.

Littleus - the first thing that springs to mind is delete it and add it from in IE. ( i presume you added it in Firefox)

The next thing i notice is that there is a cool tooltip 2 http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicin...
might work?

Lee. - sorry i couldnt be more help, i have no eperince with them. :)

Hey Lee

Great minds think alike! =) I did try deleting them and then adding it to IE instead of FF. Still didn't work. It's not that big of a deal. Since my "nav menu" has little headers over the icon, it's self-explanatory what the buttons are for. I did notice that Cool tooltip 2 and considered using it but I ended up not since I didn't like the yellow background.

I'll keep tinkering away on it. Maybe Boomer'll see this thread and jump in with his experience. Thanks Lee!

By the way.. there's someone's calling you if you're interested. It's on this thread: http://getsatisfaction.com/yola/topic...

Can people take a look at my second catalogue page? I've taken out the pop-up menu as it was not behaving very nicely on IE! I've implemented a different option. Can you please see if this works and if the menu buttons line up nicely along one row?

From what I can see in my browser, the buttons look aligned to me. Then again, it may be just cuz i've been looking so long at my site that I may not see it. Here's my screenshot in FF:



In IE7:

Hi littleus...I don't know if you were wanting a search box for your site or not but I found a very nice unobtrusive one on MSN...I like that it will open on my home page in a window and not replace the page....also being free of branding or a get widget when not in use is nice.
Here is the link if you are interested...http://search.live.com/siteowner
You can see how it looks on my page if you would like...http://kanthaidecor.com

Oh yes....but there is something I learned from composing songs...Sometimes you just have to walk away and come back later.

And you've obviously walked away a lot John - listening
to your music. (that means "good thing" BTW)

I haven't spent much time on GS the last few days because I've
been feverously working on my site, but tonight I've stepped
away to clear the head.

Hey everyone!!

I am extremely happy now (and exhausted!)!!

These are all the things I was able to do:

~ I got my tooltips to work in IE

~ I got my scrolling marquee to work in IE

~ Implemented the tooltip for the FAQ page

~ Got my images to look good in IE

~ Fixed my pop-up menu so that it doesn't flicker away

~ Fix the spacing between the image in my slideshow and the text wraparound.

~ Fix the missing borders that appear in IE

The only possible thing outstanding now is the slideshow in the middle. I've adjusted the height. From what I can tell on my end, everything is contained in the box. Can people who said they saw problems (Rizan, John, Kent), would you be able to check this for me? Thanks so much.

A hard lesson learned here! Always double check your stuff in a different browser. I can't believe how much work I had to do to have the site come across the same or relatively the same in both browsers.

Once again, the people here on this forum has proved themselves to be an awesome group of people. I thank you all!!
