You may have noticed that we have finally upgraded our site to OpenCart 1.5. This was a long process for us, because of the flurry of OpenCart version upgrades since OpenCart 1.5.0 was first released, including a further 1.4.9 release. We had a lot of module upgrade work today before we could attend to the site itself. With those upgrades largely behind us, we put some TLC into the site, and we're proud of how it's looking. It also has some great enhancements for our customers.
The first thing you will notice, is that our modules are now clearly versioned. You no longer need to be in doubt as to which versions our modules work with, as it is clearly labelled on our product images, and by our new "Shop By Version" module on category pages. Module downloads now include all current versions, so you do not need to worry about purchasing the wrong one for your store any longer. That's a great improvement!
Thanks to the new OpenCart 1.5 layouts, we've been able to get a little creative with our pages. Our blog is looking much nicer, and different from our category or search pages. Layouts are a nice improvement to OpenCart 1.5, and combined with banners can create some very modern looking pages.
We have modified our categories based on what our visitors are looking for. They are intuitive and more helpful, meaning less confusion for everyone on our site!
We have retained all customer records, so you should still be able to login to your account on the new site. We just reached a milestone of 1400 customers, which was a small celebration for us! Thank you all for your support.
Keep your eye out for more changes in the near future. We will be looking to continue to improve the site to make it easier for you to find what you're looking for, whether it's modules or information.
