Hi Warriors!

Could you please review my website and tell me if you would change anything in it?

The site is Sir PLR: The best site for PLR Products |

Obviously it's about PLR's

The soon-to-be-fixed issues are:

The product pics
Content for the site


Also does anyone know how to remove the lines that hold the pages on the featured slider? "welcome" "benefits" and "partner up with us"

Or just changing the featured slider with a single background image.


Thanks in advance,

Sam

    Everything is ok but I'm little confused about the slider
    cause those images are looking big so it's not looking so much beautiful.
    I think you should make your page into little than now. In my honest opinion, Those products contents are looking great already. Hope everything will be ok.

    To make the featured slider a single background image, just go to the theme editor and change the number of featured slides to 1. I use Elegant Themes sometimes too and that has worked for me on another theme, never tried it on the e-store theme though. I'm not sure how you would remove the lines unless they are part of the graphic, maybe you can just edit them out if so. Otherwise the site looks great! I love the background graphics

    Hi there!
    I dont really like the color combination on your site..
    Also, I think having large images for slider is not that good too..
    Please try making your carousel smaller..

    By the way, I think your using an Elegant Theme right?
    It looks so familiar.. haha.

    Wow, there's a lot of stuff going on there.

    It's a very cool concept, but I have no idea what to do when I land on the homepage. It's like viewing Jim Carrey's website. My eyes just bobble around a bit and I feel befuddled.

    When I look through the products and navigation, I become even more confused. Internet marketing. Forex. Weight loss. It's like it wants to be everything, and in the process becomes completely incomprehensible.

    The only thing the website is missing is focus.

      Hi Sam,

      Interesting site!

      First up - it looks very nice...if perhaps a little unfocused.

      To me the site isn't immediately obvious what it does - or why I should want a membership. Perhaps there could be some welcome text or even a welcome video to explain what the site does. I would always try and presume that your audience are "really thick" - that way you leave nothing to chance.

      Maybe have a "New to the site? Start here" button or something that orientates the uninitiated?

      Other than that - it's all cool!

      BTW - Firebug for firefox is a great tool to debug and find styling and elements that you want to change within your design!

      Hope this helps - Johnny

    Thanks for all the feedback! Actually I need to add content, this site is going to be a unique membership site for PLR products. I need to fill out the info about how the site is going to work! Also if there is someone who knows how to make the featured sliders images smaller would be great!

    Thanks again,

    Sam

      Hi sam - the css for the featured slider is

      #featured {
      background-color: #969384;
      height: 501px;
      position: relative;


      }


      I think it's on line 250

      Try modding that!

    If you want to make those huge background images in the slider smaller, it's a little tricky.

    You can do it by giving .slide a fixed background-size, but that's too hacky for my taste. Some major browsers don't support it.

    It would look something like this:

    .slide { background-size: 900px 400px; }

    The better way is to fire up Photoshop or another image editor, resize each of the slide background images, and upload the updated files. It's slightly more time-consuming, though.

      Hi Dconjar!

      Thanks for the info, I tried uploading smaller images but I think that the slider has a fixed size for the background image! I'll try later again when I arrive home!

      PS: Thanks for all the great feedbacks again!

        I'm guessing that you're using a plugin to manage the slider. Is that correct?

        If so, the plugin probably has options that allow you to change the size of the slider.

        If that doesn't work, you can upload over the image files via FTP. Go to /wp-content/uploads/2012/05/ in an FTP client and replace each image with smaller versions of the images.

        Make sure each image matches what they are on the website. They should be:
        • testfinal8-1280x501.jpg
        • benefits1-1400x501.jpg
        • solidarity1-1400x501.jpg

    Have you thought about putting a slight rollover effect on the main Nav bar?

    It feels a little hard to see if I'm selecting one of those buttons or not.

    Design looks good, just the slider is either kind of big, or too empty (not enough content). Try out different things it, I'm sure you'll find the right combination.

    Go to your /wp-content/themes/eStore/js/ folder and open up Raleway_250.font.js in your favorite text editor.

    You should see this on line 25:

    HTML Code:
    Cufon.registerFont({"w":169,"face":{"font-family":"Raleway","font-weight":250,"font-stretch":"normal", ...
    Try changing that portion of line 25 to this:

    HTML Code:
    Cufon.registerFont({"w":169,"face":{"font-family":"Raleway","font-weight":bold,"color":"#000","font-stretch":"normal", ...
    Chrome Developer Tools won't let me edit the js for some reason, so I'm not sure if it will work, but it's worth a try.

    You may want to consider using a different font. Raleway isn't very readable. And cufontext adds a ton of extra markup, so I'm not sure how SEO-friendly it is.

    Hiya

    In my opinion, the background is too prominent - it looks like that is the main focus of the site, and not the boxes above the background. Perhaps try putting those images in black and white, and reducing their opacity somewhat. The images are nice, but they in themselves don't really say much about the site - usually sliders have information on them - perhaps if you put some information on each of those images it would serve your purpose well.

    Other than that, it all looks good - the logo is nice and clean and the colours are nice. You get straight into selling the PLR, which is also a great bonus.

    Yeah, mainly the slider to me looks a bit of a mismatch - otherwise, a nice site indeed

    Hi!

    I think you should improve the background - it's not easy on the eyes. In addition, you may add a FAQ button where you can talk about 'what is PLR' and 'what rights you will get' kind of things (I am yet to add this section in my new PLR store though!).

    Thanks,

    If you're feeling really advanced, turn this site into a business, where you can sign up. Another good idea would be JavaScript sliding menus! In fact, you should probably add more scripting...

    I think you're on the right track with your website. It looks ok for your first site. I do have a few suggestions. For you slider, The font color should be changed so it's more visible for the reader. Try using a lighter blue or maybe white. You should aim to have all the colors mesh well, especially on the main page. You should also add a small desciption underneath the title of the slider instead of just having a more info button. You need some text to balance the slider presentation.

    You have two sets of links. It looks like you made two menus before the slider starts and one of the links is there twice. You should consider just adding the Free Products to the top menu.

    The images are ok but not great. If the images don't blend well with your background, try making a border so it doesn't look like it was just copied and paste without being edited or custom made for the background. Plus it would make the image look a lot better with a border. Not every image needs a border but I think if you stick with your current images, the border will make the pics look better, in my opinion.

    The font you used for the products looks better than the font you used for the sidebar. It's clear and bolder, have a universal font for your text. Headers can be different but the print should be the same, it makes the site look more aligned and professional.

    You also want to align your product links. Uniform your descriptions. Either one or two lines of text so your links don't look disjointed.

    Overall good site, only minor issues that are easy fixes. I like it.

    Well actually I did the 90% of the site in 3 days, but I had to wait because I had other projects and now I'm developing the site further, but I'm mostly doing tech stuff rather than designing. I want to have some feedback to see what can I change for now.
    Producing the site took me 3 days to have it like this (without some mods I have made recently)

    Also it doesn't have anything to do with affiliate marketing
