This is my store, I've operated it a few years now and it's slowly evolved over time. It does run the Journal 2 theme, which I know not everyone likes, but it has allowed to develop the look to what I like. Not had much in the way of feedback from customers, so it must be okay for them to use easily.
Always welcome constructive feedback though.

I don't like the initial "wait while we open the store" redirect.
The yellow banner with "We give you a 2% Discount if paying by Bank Transfer!" and "Delivery available worldwide on most products." is too much in your face on each page.
Beyond that, not bad.

You basically have a home page which all it does is this:

<meta HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" content="5; url=https://www.burntstuff.com/shop/index.php">

Why?

Any you get errors like these (most of them caused by Journal2):

Code: Select all

This page uses the non standard property “zoom”. Consider using calc() in the relevant property values, or using “transform” along with “transform-origin: 0 0”. shop
Layout was forced before the page was fully loaded. If stylesheets are not yet loaded this may cause a flash of unstyled content. _967c840125e035886896824426b24f06.js:1025:13699
downloadable font: no supported format found (font-family: "journal-icons" style:normal weight:400 stretch:100 src index:1) source: (end of source list)
Loading failed for the <script> with source “https://www.googletagmanager.com/gtag/js?id=UA-xxxxxxxxx-x”.
And don't use Journal's one-page checkout, it has some serious issues, see e.g. this forum post.

Other than that, the look&feel is nice!

Thanks both for the replies, espcially the comment about the issue with Journals Quick Checkout. I have had a problem in the past where a customer placed two orders in quick succession and the first was over written by the second, I didn't have a clue as to what the issue was. I have gone back to the default checkout.

As far as the start page is concerned, I would love to get rid of it so the store isn't in a sub folder, but not sure how, maybe I just need to leave that page blank and do an instant forward into the shop.

I'll have a look at the rotating headlines, maybe just leave them on the first page.

.htaccess rule

maybe something like this will work for you:

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^burntstuff\.com [NC]
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://www.burntstuff.com/shop/$1 [R,L]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://www.burntstuff.com/shop/$1 [R=301,L]
