I broke my piggy bank :)
Like the title said, I broke my piggy bank to redesign my site. Nothing fancy really with my tighten budget, but it looks better than the old one.
The new design is in css with CMS, so it is easier to manipulate.
Please review our site :woot: the link is in my signature.
Thank you very much
A very nice and clean layout :)
I hope you piggy bank will recover with the new design.
I like this layout a lot more! Nice work! :)
Thank you, currently the search engines are updating the pages smoothly :)
Excellent! Keep us updated on how things go!

Congrats on the new site, definitely an improvement.
From the point of view as an average user (i'm not a designer or usability expert :) )
What I like about your new site:
'Spacier' compared to the old site (as far as i can recall), makes it easy to read.
Articles, cool! (did you have these before?).
Some things that I noticed:
I found the menus in the footer a bit inconvenient. Would be nice perhaps near the header.
When you go to a page via the footer menu, except for the title, there's no way of seeing your site navigation.
The articles previews are missing a 'read more' link. Perhaps not everyone will realize that you can click on the title.
On the home page it would be nice perhaps to place the latest products to the top -above the fold- and the text next to it or below. This way, users see instantly where the site is about.
Thank you :) As far as the business go, it is still difficult. I guess all of us are experiencing tuff time. We just continue to work hard to offer new products and new contents.

I like the new design. It looks smooooooth.
One thing that I noticed is that you should take a look at the way that the shopping cart functions. When a product is added to the cart, the page page appears to refresh, but there is no indication that anything has been placed in the cart. I found myself hitting the Buy button repeatedly while looking for some indication that something was added to the cart. Perhaps you need something in the left sidebar or the header to indicate that products have been added to the cart. Some sort of indicator is needed to let people know that they have added an item to the cart.
Thank you :) This is why I choose to change the design. The old site was too tight for all our new content projects, so we changed with a new site offering more room, now all the elements on our e-commerce can breathe.

The footer menu work like the main menu, all the links have the same navigational concept. Don't underestimate the people, they will find the links ;)
The articles previews are missing a 'read more' link. I am thinking about that, I am trying to avoid repetitions on each paragraph, but it is always interesting to see how other people think.
It would be nice perhaps to place the latest products to the top. I am thinking about that, perhaps in the middle.
You know the new site was live yesterday, and we tried to keep almost everything in the same place than before so the site will not be too much shaked by the rankings before doing some major changes.
I really appreciate your review, it will help one way or another, thank you for your help :)

The cart can be viewed on the top navigation when you click on view cart. I have a module mini cart that can be added anytime, perhaps we will do that when the entire site will be indexed and updated.
I appreciated your review too, thank you :)
If I may ask you, what payment system are you using? I'm looking for something but the local providers have high requirements.
