hey! You guys are wonderful! thanks so much.
frndchps, you have taken me from where i was to where i am and have shown me the error of redundace. thanks so much. 2 things ppl are not aware of.
#1 this is a templated website, i can adjust the copy, the color and some of the look and feel, but not all.
#2 the product shopping cart has mostly NO changing allowed. it to is a template
I chose this shopping cart company based on price, but mainly on customer service. there were 2 or 3 companies in my price range that dealt with my catalog, and all i had to do was pay them and they attach their cart to my existing site with a click thru. however, it was this company who were willing to answer most of my ??`s thru email and then when that became overwhelming, they simply picked up the phone and called me. unlike others who said `call so and so, she can help you.` i like e-mail and they impressed me thru their willingness to use it.
anyway . . . you have brought me a long way, and i appreciate it. you may be a novicce, but not all of us are professionals, and we need critiquing from all view points. i can`t thank you enough.
victor . . . same goes for you. your advice is truthful, and honest. gentle and not condemning. thank you. when you state you were not interested in reading on, i have to say i got sick of reading it myself, but thought that it was because i had read it like a million times. now i know it is not so. go figure. i truly appreciate the honesty of saying that you don`t get it either. now i don`t feel so all alone.
cookiemonster . . . ah ha!! now i get what you don`t like!! maybe the same lies true for the rest of us. yes. it all helps. i will look at your ideas and if it`s ok, i`ll just borrow your tag line `low cost office supplies and friendly service, no matter where you live.` i like that. being somewhat of a `professional` i don`t want ppl to think that i am an idiot because my sentences end in prepositions or something else as lame as glaring grammer mistakes. will the average person appreciate that i am down to earth?? maybe, but what about the purchasing agent of a large corporation?? i NEED them to think i have somewhat of an idea about properly putting a sentence together. (or `how to properly format a sentence`)
please throw out more ways to go from boring to exciting. i want this site to pay for itself. then maybe i can afford to ditch the templates and make a dynamic site where i pay thousands of dollars in website design and layout, and make the images large enough for the user to view intricately.
i will make the changes to the best of my limited ability and we`ll see how it goes.
thanks so much. i will look at the sites and posts you have mentioned and keep working on it. thanks again!!!!
