Rewards Shopping Site - Feedback Requested

Post by Whitebread » Mon Mar 23, 2009 4:13 pm

Greetings fellow Joomla-ites!

I am in the process of developing a rewards based shopping site and I would like to get some Feedback from my fellow web-developers.

http://www.virburbia.com

This is my first real attempt at a commercial site and I am sure it needs a lot of work. I am using Joomla! 1.5 and many custom scripts via Jumi until I learn more about developing my own extensions. Currently the site allows for shopping but I am going to be expanding it to add more community elements via Community Builder.

I would like any feedback that you have to offer (as long as its constructive).

Thanks and Enjoy!

It has recently come to my attention that there was an issue with registering at my site. This has now been fixed. Sorry for an inconvenience it has caused anyone. Take a look though and give me feedback. No registration is required.

After trying my site in several browsers I ran into some issues regarding how IE7 handles CSS. It made the site look rather horrible in IE but I think I have taken care of it now. With few exceptions you should see the same thing in IE as you do in FF and other browsers.

good idea, but I would update the template, focus on directing your users to take the actions you want him to. In other words focus on conversion.

I am a big fan of justified text at least on home pages to make it look cleaner.

From your description, I expected an e-commerce site, but it looks like just affiliate links. Am I missing something, or are you returning a portion of the commissions to your visitors if they visit an affiliate? That could probably be made clearer to your visitors as well...
