New webstore URL (BETA TESTING)

Post by exxos » Mon Nov 18, 2019 10:02 pm

If anyone is about to order anything from my store, please use this URL and test my new store out.

https://www.exxoshost.co.uk/atari/store2/

I have done as much testing as I can, so only thing left is to "make it live" and see how it all behaves. If something goes wrong somewhere, please let me know so I can fix it!

As mentioned before, it behaves much like my old store (but the checkout is totally different now) Its a total store re-write, so there are likely some bugs somewhere (I hope not). Though please have some patience if things go wonky :) Worst cases are the order will fail, or I will refund the order if something is added up wrong, and then you may have to order again.


For more information on the store changes, see the main thread here viewtopic.php?f=20&t=1797

Looks great. First thing that caught my attention was 2600 REPLICA JOYSTICK which I'm wanting but don't trust amazon. I'll definitely be buying this now I trust the source. Will be this week. :)
Atari 520 STFM (C070523-001 REV.D1) 4MB, TOS 1.04 (now using EmuTos), Ultrasatan with 14x 511MB gemdos drives, Original Floppy Drive.

Looks as acquainted.
May I humbly ask for a small improvement?
My screen has a width of 1920 pixels, and my browser needs few pixels for its frame. Would be nice if Your shop fits in without horizontal scrolling.

I've never seen it horizontal scroll. It auto resizes even on my tablet. What are you using ?

In fact the store default size is 1300px.

I´m using FireFox. Screenshot is from inside of frame of maximum size (unfortunately I don´t have a Screenshot-Prg. doing the frame also). Look at the right edge.
May be I´m doing something wrong? But I couldn´t detect any menue item telling Firefox to do automatic resizing.
(Hopefully I could attach the .png, it´s of size 1894x931 - you may delete it after viewing)

Your resolution looks like it may be 1024px ? The store is 1300px, its the only way it would chop off like that.

No, as I told You already, rez. is 1920x1080.
Look at the pixel size of the screensnap.

Magnification in FireFox is 100%.
If I reduce it to 90% it´s inside - but then there is surplus around and also the letters are 10% smaller.
I think, just 1300 isn´t a good idea, may be 1280 is better?

If your resolution is 1920 then you should have no problem with 1300px. My monitor is 1920px and there is huge space left and right of the store. Have you tried chrome ?
