Welcome, guest!

Feel free to read the blog, browse for themes, or join the club.

The community forums are currently being phased out. At the end of February or early March 2012, you will no longer be able to post here. This is because the entire site is being restructured. Please use the main forums for discussions.

SunshineStateExotics.com - Old School

  1. First, I want to say that I really like what Justin has created. Thanks!

    I think I am done with my new site. I am a reptile breeder and my sites main purpose is to sell the animals I produce. I am hoping to get honest feedback on it. I know your not in the hobby, but you guys have a lot of experience in this area. I am looking to see what people think of it before I officially announce it on the reptile forums, facebook, etc.

    So, when you get some time, can you tool around the whole thing and tell
    me what you think. I still need to take pictures and update my
    available list. I have to redo the pictures for the thumbnails. They
    are blurry because of the size increase.

    Some questions to keep in mind:

    - How do you like the start page? Do you like the recent animals in
    the sidebar? Notice I have Latest Posts and Categories below that.
    (ignore what's in the recent animals box... that will change when I
    add animals). I plan on regularly adding posts / articles to the site.

    - How do you like the available page? Is it easy to get around? Do you
    like my "note" section above the available animals? Is it tacky?

    - How is the speed? It should be quicker once I redo the pictures. I
    didn't realize I used huge pictures on my available page. Each is over
    500k.

    - I had a Slickr Flickr slide show on the front page. The plugin is
    in the process of being fixed as it was conflicting with some other
    plugins I run. When I add it, it will be like TSK:
    http://www.thesnakekeeper.com/ .... What do you think of that?

    - Do you think the photos and YouTube pages add value?

    - Anything jump out at you I should change?

    -How can I improve the site?

  2. Looks good to me - photos and youtube pages are good idea, helps people connect more with you and the reptiles!

    I think the site does the job very well, it's not too slow for me and I am in Australia on a slow broadband connection.

    I always recommend the front page to be more of an index of the content inside the site so I would do a custom template and have lots of links to different sections of the site coming off the home page - imagine you are someone landing at the site for the first time you should try and give them a overall picture of everything going on and reduce the welcome text to just a small paragraph.
