Let's see your e-commerce sites! I'm building mine now and a looking for inspiration! I have so many different products and sizes and weights...I'm getting bogged down with figuring out all this shipping stuff! I'm using PayPal but it's making my job a big one!

I haven't published it yet...I'm working on paypal shopping cart buttons and shipping rates right now. It has to be published for you to view it right?

Honestly I think it is better to publish your site and leave the pages you are still working on out of the nav menu....Have a nice home page with a little bit about what you are going to be offering.The advantage is being able to submit your site to search engines. Good to have the clock ticking on your site being indexed by search engines ASAP. There is also nothing wrong with adding product a few pages at a time then add to the nav menu as needed...That is what I did on my site at first.

Hi guys...! Well my new online boutique is up. It took me ages and I still have more to do, but I'll always still have more to do right?! I could really re-organize the back end more!

Check it out and let me know your thoughts!!

Still showing as parked on godaddy.....You will always have more to do though...Part of keeping a site viable is fresh content.

Hey Dana - you will see both your Yola site and GoDaddy because you still have A Records setup to point to GoDaddy (68.178.232.100). This means that there will be confusion and the browser will go to either site. I recommend that you login to your GoDaddy account and delete the 68.178.232.100 A Record. I hope that helps!

Hello Dana!
Great site! Congrats!
A suggestion: Put small images (thumbnails) on the home page that represent each prodcut category (making the image itself a link to the category page), maybe with a short descriptive text next to it, and a "see more" link. That would make entry navigation easier, and encourage visitors to look further into your items.
Best Regards!

thnx hermenn that is a great idea. I totally agree with you. I actually saw it on a website awhile ago and have it in on my website 'to do' list!
