Re: New webstore URL (BETA TESTING)

Post by exxos » Thu Nov 21, 2019 10:29 am

Its not easy to change resolution unfortunately.. There is a lot of css which I have been fighting with for about 2 weeks to get correct layout in store. It would create a lot of work just to go down 20px and I just don't have time to spend re-doing the css and testing all again. In fact I am still working on some php scripting issues. Don't forget I am not a web programmer, so it takes me a long time to do everything anyway.

But thank-you for the report anyway. Glad you found the issue.

Hi @exxos ,
I just tried to post my order in Your new shop.
After logged in with Your forum, it was nice to be welcomed by my nickname. 8-)
As I had filled the basket before, I went to checkout and put in my address.
But then I noticed, the parcel was considered too heavy because of this:
x2 , Atari Falcon 030 68882 FPU 40mhz , £10 , 9999g (19998g total)
Never saw any FPU of 10kg weight... Must be a mechanical one? :mrgreen:
Well, I woudn´t mind, if only it fits in & works at the defined speed...
Then, going back and forth again, I saw my address had vanished :roll: .
Please fix both issues.
Falcon, TT & some more

@ari.tao i I fixed the FPU issue. In fact I think there are a few more items which need fixing. I will do that later.

As for storing your address, no can't do that. Once you leave the checkout page the information is lost. To store it I would have to force people to register and sign up and store account info which I don't want to do. It would be a huge amount of work just to save people 5 seconds of time. Generally once you goto checkout, you should checkout. Going back to the store is rarely needed anyway.

Something Bad Happened
We will find the person responsible and have them shot!
ERROR - EMAIL ADDRESS SEEMS INVALID? - SCRIPT HALTED
Your order has not been placed. Your card has not been billed.
No, You mustn´t shoot them, just hand them over to me...
May be I forgot to put in the email address? I´ll try again!
Way back was by the recycling button only.

Now it says "Order completed" :D
But another remark:
Some fields are hard to be filled in, as the explains are so faint & therefore hard to read.
Light gray on white background is not such good an idea.

I´m astonished myself: By now I needed two hours to get the order finished.
It´s surely not Your fault. It´s just that I´m getting old now... :(

On the checkout ? easy to read for me ? Its almost black text on a "paper" type background pattern. Same tile as used in the old store for 3 years in fact.

Payment page is hosted by Stripe, I have no control over that page at all unfortunately. Once you click the payment complete button, anything after that is stripe hosted pages (other than the final confirmation page which goes back to my server) .
