    Please rate my up 'n' coming E-store



    I have been relearning my web dev skils for over a month now, and
    the makings of a decant site is starting to break through...

    Please note that product photos are temporary, I am still waiting on the majority of my initial stock.

    There are still tweaks needed here and there, but the general layout and functionality is up and running.

    I have coded my (1st) own cart page, from scratch, it handles multiple pricing for different regions.

    The final Paypal button is offline, no selling yet.

    Any feed back on anything at all, good or bad, please keep bad feed back helpful.

    That's about it, remember guys.. Pick PlecPicker!

    Life size.

    I think you should make your plectrums life size rather than larger then life.

    The horizantal background should flow into each other like a mosaic rather than the liney look it currently has.

    Also you could offer a six or twelve pack advertised on the landing page, taken from the available choices so buyers are more encouraged to glance through the selections.

    If you can work out free shipping costs in small hard envelopes in order to service more remote areas that would save bus fares to and from the closest music store.

    The online service you plan to offer has to be beneficial to potential buyers.

    Thanks for that feedback, As im sure you can tell, i've still got lots to do.

    I made the plectrums 5 to a row now.

    Will be uploading several hundred unique types soon.

    Tweaking my search for shape/thickness/colour.

    Also working on displaying pages on large searches.

    Stay tuned

    Still making tweaks and changes to the site, A nice order of stock is in process, what more can you say about the site?

    any advice would be welcome!

    SELECT * FROM Items ORDER BY size, thickness DESC
    Security MIGHT be an issue.

    The links in the header marked 1, 2, 3, etc. don't make any sense.

    1,2,3? Do you mean the page buttons?

    20 items a page , gonna set this as chooseable values soon anyway .

    As for the SQL query, I needed it for debugging reasons.

    "1" points to page 1, the others don't point to the same numbers as the links indicate.

    There are a number of ways to see what SQL statement you are using besides showing it to the world on a live site.

    Load time is extra long due to the background images.

    Thankyou for the feedback,

    The 'page' numbes in the links are really more item numbers, 20 items a page
    so page 2 is '21', I will be changing this, and also giving the user the option to chooses how many items to display per page.

    EDIT Also recently I made the 'page' value work for 'cart', I will also be linking in the privacy policy and all that with it to.

    And yes some images are defiantly to large, Again, on the to do list.

    I would appreciate further explanation on your SQL comment,
    Due to my circumstances i am developing the site 'live' so security is indeed inevitably a problem, and yes I was recently displaying the actual sql command to make sure it loaded the right way. But that is gone now. What are the numerous ways you mentioned?
    All i can see is the url, eg "type=plecs&subtype=thumbpick&colour=gold"
    I probably should rename these ...

    What other ways are there?

    Display the SQL via a hidden element so you can do a "View Page source" and it's there, but not as obvious where everybody sees it. Ideally, you could write the output to a file.
