Website reorganisation and update soon
« on: June 22, 2010, 05:17:21 PM »
Regular visitors to our website may be a little confused by all the movements in the last day or so - sorry about that but there is just a bit more to do.  BUT - all designed to make it easier to find things.

We've been working on 2 really big projects and we're getting very close so just this bit of housekeeping to do first.

1.  Have been working on the new website for about a month.  Almost ready to switch over so stay tuned for this announcement. 
2.  Still working on the print catalogue but with a whole bunch of new products coming, wanted to add them to the list before we get a final draft to the printer.  The catalogue will be a little while as we need to bed the new website down first but we have not forgotten about it.

cheers

Just letting any potential shoppers know that our website will be down for maintenance on Friday morning (2nd June) while we do the software upgrade.  Hopefully we'll be back online by lunchtime.

We will be available by phone to take any urgent orders - or you may like to get in before Friday morning (hint hint  ;) ) to do online orders.

Otherwise, check out the new website from Friday arvo onwards.  Havent changed the outward appearance too much but improved security under the hood, rearranged products/categories and better search to help you find stuff - including lots of new products and probably some old ones you didnt realise we had.

cheers for now,
Leah

Hi Leah and Andrew,

Just had a peek at all your efforts, and it is coming along great, I love how the catagories are sorted into sections, and allsp also the brand logos etc.

Great work ;)

Take Care,

Thank you - no big dramas.  Just a few little tweaks to go but we've been getting orders since lunchtime so looks like it is all working properly (PHEW!!!).

My eyes are just about falling out and I've got a headache from looking at code and files.  Going to take the rest of the arvo off.

If anyone sees anything I need to fix - please let me know.

cheers
Leah

thanks Graham, that was the main aim.  Since we have all sorts of stuff now (we'll be adding the kitchen sinks soon  ;) ), we needed to make it easier to navigate.  I hope that part has improved.

Your error was one we get very occasionally where the payment gateway times out - since that part is on the NAB site, not much we can do about it.  Luckily it happens only very rarely and we have a process in place for handling it - you did the right thing checking with us though.

Now I've got a few little jobs to do on ALF...

cheers
