Not very proud of this but so advice are needed

Post by motion-ex » Sat Aug 20, 2005 6:37 pm

Hi i helped a friend who has started some kind of clothing line with a website, it was a very fustrating work as the friend had an idea of a website that doesn't pursue any e-commerce goal and would go against the grain of all the recommendations in terms of usability and other...

This was actually the rhuksolar template that i had to transform as he recomended, it doesn't look great tome but he is so happy about it and also don't look at this in firefox the code is quite hawfull...

When the first picture fades in you should immeadately have a link to skip the animation and go straight to the website. Never, ever, EVER, make people watch even the slightest animation if they don't want to.

The Flash-thing and the music on the background are very, very annoying. As a customer I would leave this site right away. The colorscheme and header are OK though. By the way... take a look at the site in Firefox and see that the topmenu isn't as it's supposed to be.

I would suggest removing the flash intro and the music that plays while browsing.

Maybe creating a new menu and refining the banner head would quickly and easily
enhance the overall appearance and appeal of the site without taking too much time.
