Nice work!

May I assume you are open to suggestions/feedback?

Just a couple nits:
- while *we* all know you are using magento, everyone else will too since you have it installed in the /magento directory. Not sure how hard it would be to change it to something more generic or even the root directory. I’m just thinking it may be a potential security risk (??).
- the favicon.ico switches from Magento to your custom favicon (when viewing in IE7). You may want to overwrite all instances of the favicon with your custom one to avoid that.
- the Advanced Search includes Tax Class as one of the search options (which seems odd), but doesn’t include things such as category to narrow down by gadget type, for instance.

Congratulations on going live!

I like it very much!

I would suggest to link every picture on the main site to a sellable product, or to a page with more information.

For example, the “Free Shipping” graphics to a page that explains in more detail how fantastic your shipping service is! grin

Jesse, your design is great!

As karynn said, I also would change the url and I would delete /magento/index.php

Anyway, your good work!

Oh yeah, I didn’t even notice that until you guys pointed it out. I agree though, you should take magento/index.php out of the URL. Will make things look a little better and shorten the URLs up a bit smile

Nice looking but you should do something about the certificate errors.  Firefox says ‘Website certified by an unknown authority’ on every page.

Thank you for all the feedback. Great advice.

BTW - GadgetGuard.com is hosted at Crucial and runs very smoothly. I definitely recommend them to everyone wanting affordable hosting for magento.

If anyone else could test this for me, I would appreciate it very much. It seems to be working fine on my end. Thank you.

I have verified that this certificate is valid and installed properly.

I believe the problem is due to the fact that your browser doesn’t recognize GoDaddys SSL Authority.  I’ve tested this in FF & IE havent seen the issue myself. 

I did receive the following from Opera -

- The certificate for “gadgetguard.com” is signed by the unknown Certificate Authority “Go Daddy Secure Certification Authority”. It is not possible to verify that this is a valid certificate

I also received the same error after upgrading to the latest version of Opera.

You can view the Godaddy certificate chain at the following URL; https://certs.godaddy.com/Repository.go

I don’t get any errors in Opera 9.5b (probably because GoDaddy Secure Certificatoin Authority is already in my list of intermediate cert authorities), Safari, or Internet Explorer 7/8, but did in Firefox (a giant box popped up).

What I didn’t get in Opera, Safari, and Firefox, was a secure lock icon. In Internet Explorer I did.

Here’s what I get when I look at the information for the page (in Opera):

Site not secure

The connection to http://www.gadgetguard.com is not secure, and should not be used to exchange sensitive information.

The following problem(s) were found:

Online certificate validation (OCSP) request failed.

When the SSL was ordered, was it made out to gadgetguard.com or www.gadgetguard.com? Definitely not something you want popping up on the page.

Hope this helps.

Godaddy is saying that the intermediate file were not installed correctly. I asked them if it had to do with the “www”, but they assured me that records were created for both.

I get the warning on FF/mac - and I use Godaddy SSL on other sites, they’ve always told me I needed to buy two certificates - for the www and non-www.

I have my sites set up to always redirect to the www to avoid that same error message.

Quite the sales pitch/scam they have.

You don’t need to buy two for domain-only certs, especially when you said you redirect to the WWW version anyways.

The first thing all sites should do is decide if they want the WWW prefix on their domain or not. Once they figure that out, they should redict all visitors (and more importantly, search engines) to the domain you want to use. Otherwise, if your site comes up with the WWW and without it, you’ll have search engine result listings for both, possibly resulting in duplicate content.

For anyone that wants to force visitors one way or the other, add this to your .htaccess file, preferably right after RewriteEngine On:

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^domain\.com[NC]
RewriteRule 
^(.*)$ http://www.domain.com/$1 [R=301,L]

And if you don’t want the WWW in your domain name, it’s the reverse:

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www\.domain\.com[NC]
RewriteRule 
^(.*)$ http://domain.com/$1 [R=301,L]

yes, I redirect traffic to www as well.

I contact crucial and they installed my certificate in less than an hour.

Crucial is a top notch hosting company. Their customer support has been nothing short of amazing.
