What a great time to go live…

I have gone live with my online store and would love any feedback and usability comments anyone may have.. let me know what you reckon.

We are a store located in the deep south pacific, Napier, New Zealand to be precise and we specialise in NZ fashion, art and design.

Very nice & clean design - altho it’s left aligned in FF 3.2 on XP. Would it not look better if the whole thing was centred on the screen?

Best wishes,
Eddie

Looks good (from UK). Concur on the left-aligning, centred would look nicer me thinks. Homepage scrolling is a bit much!

I’ll try the centre aligning and see how it goes… it was initially aligned to the centre but i decided to try something different. i was a bit over every magento site being cetre aligned.

The site is hosted in the US by Crucial Web. I don’t know why it doesn’t want to load in the EU.

thanks
Aroha

I like the overall look, and keep it left just like you said its different, everybody uses center.

Hi Aroha,

I’m basing my site on the Moderate theme too, one of the things I like about your site is the embedded thumbnails to the left of the main product images, could you tell me how you implemented it?

Love the Site btw

Simon
