Getting ready to launch new site!

Last Update: October 29, 2016

I've just finished building my new e-commerce website "In Pandora's Kitchen." The actual Grand Opening ads will be out next weekend not this weekend. But I would love any comments or critiques that might help me improve on it this week. So I've disabled the coming soon mode, in order for you to be able to take a look. I've work hard on it but a fresh set of eyes is always helpful. You can leave me comments here or in my profile. Just go to http://inpandorskithchen.com I would really appreciate your feedback.

OK Everything is back up and the domain is corrected. Support helped me get that taken care of pretty quickly. It is now corrected to inpandoraskitchen.com, I checked and it was available this time. So I got it. And I'm going to keep it.

.Becka your site is well put together. The only problems I found were 1) the word meal is missing the the l under Storage. Also I went to Black and Decker and got your template.

Hi Becka,

You did a fantastic job with your site.The thing I found to be a slight drawback was that it took your pages longer to load than I think they should have,even hitting the back arrow took a while to load.

You have a lot of content so maybe that's why.I think you will do very well with your business,because it covers a topic we all relate to; eating.

Have a Blessed WeekEnd;
Your Brother In Christ;

Good job over all. I had a hard time reading thru the candy canes? if you could make them lighter colored, very faint? How do I delete a theme I don't want on my SiteRubx? Thanks for the help I am very new. Today in fact!
Reply
Becka56 Premium
I was wondering about the candy canes myself. Thank you I will lighten them up more.

As for deleting a theme, I assume you are wanting to delete the extra now that you picked one. Click on the theme to see the options it and on the bottom it will give you the option to delete it.

I thought I had the coming soon mode disabled. Apparently it wasn't, I apologize. It is now off, so you can see the whole site.

I also have an e-commerce site, with baking ingredients and supplies. I assume yours is kitchen gadgets or something similar?
Reply

You'll have to take a look, it's not kitchen gadgets or something.

I just checked and found that the "coming soon mode" I disabled last night was still active. I shut in down completely just now. Now you should be able to actually see the whole site. Sorry about that.

I couldn't get on website. Is it just me ? Like Ghost59 points out
URL says Pandors and website holding page says Pandoras, and kitchen not right. Could cause problems. Would love to see your site for proper appraisal. Chris

I don't know, you are the second person not able to see it. Did you use the link or type in the address?
Reply
Cristo49 Premium
I clicked the link just now and it's come on ok. I still think you will have problems with people not being able to type in your domain. If Pandors doesn't get them Kithchen will. What happens if you key in pandoraskitchen. Is there a website by that name ? Some of your traffic will unfortunately go there. I can't read Pandoras Kitchen in the top left hand graphic and the title in the big graphic is indistinct as well. That graphic doesn't really do anything, but the graphics showing the different product titles are really small. Could do with making a little bigger. Otherwise very colourful and well made site. Good start. Cleverly done. Regards, Chris

There's a restaurant in PA by that name. So I had some issues. It's a sister site to my Blog site Pandora's Box Of Cooking. I will have them linked together.

Cristo49 Premium
Ah ! I understand. No problem with that then. What do you think about my observations about the graphics ?
Reply
Becka56 Premium
I assume you are talking about the graphics for the different departments on the home page. Because the graphics everywhere else are ample size. So you think I need to enlarge those to draw in customers?
Reply
Cristo49 Premium
I come from a print background so did a lot of leaflets. I always tried to make every bit of the leaflet count. So on this website I think the 2 big graphics in the middle to me don't add anything, but the images that depict the products are very small. The logo top left hand could be bigger and clearer. Just a brand thing. Make the Title, logo and graphic representation of products the eyecatchers. That's my view.

Becka56 Premium
The logo top left, I can't change the size of that one. It's the program default. The two pictures I have above the departments are for the grand opening ad holiday sales. That was the idea anyway. After the 1st of the new year they'll be gone. I was thinking I would use the space there for sales announcements and the things like that. On line you need to grab attention when they first land on your page. That is the space I have to use get their attention.

OK. You know what you are doing. Your plans are there. It's good and attractive anyway. Best of luck. I have another look when it up and running. Regards, Chris

Domain name seems wrong, pandors shouldn't that be pandoras ? And kithchen should be kitchen no ?

The name is In Pandora's Kitchen. I couldn't get the domain name to come out the way I wanted. The site is still spelled correctly

Except of the part of your logo that cover some of your pages, the whole page looks very good. I really like it!
Reply
Becka56 Premium
What do you mean, covers part of my pages? Could you please explain where you're seeing this.
Reply
reanna1 Premium
Nothing much. Just that your logo at the upper side of the page covers in a way "contact us" and "about me" pages. Maybe you will change the colour or make them bigger. Besides that, very nice site!

Thank you, I finally settled on that palate thinking it was fairly neutral and inviting at the same time. I can change the background to suite the seasons, events, sales etc.
