Nice site, as Jeremy Fisk said:
the latest orders is a cool mod
except that as a customer I wouldn't appreciate everyone to see my name showing! City/products/amount I wouldn't bother but as a customer I would ask to have my name remove! But this is just my opinion, maybe others wouldn't mind.

PS: this is not a revenge criticism just a fair opinion as a customer because the module is cool!

I'd have to agree. If it was just first name only (which I'm sure it could be easily modded to make that happen) I wouldn't mind so much. But First and Last name I would kind of have a problem with. LOL, especially if the site was like for sexy Lingerie or something! :o

As a bit of constructive criticism . . .

The main navigation menu could use some additional - theme relevant - styling (in my opinion).
Perhaps a "gift-box themed" background color or image (rustic/brown, perhaps).

Also, your main site logo kind of bleeds into the background colors (tan/white).
Can you, perhaps, "bold" it up a bit so it stands out/pops a bit more against the background?

Same with the font color you've chosen for your headlines - could stand to be a bit darker.


Lastly, the last menu item of your main navigation - at least on my browser - seems to over-extend the menu
thread" background. Not sure if anyone else is experiencing this.


Otherwise, nice job and CONGRATS !!!

Cleo, sorry for my comment on your tread.

I don't see a problem with showing first and last name in latest orders because I am not selling nuclear warheads.
Maybe I am wrong about it. I will ask my customers if they want their names removed.

I just spoke to some of my customers and they don't mind me showing their full name. They would be pissed if I showed their address or phone number.

I will keep asking and I will update this tread in few weeks.

The thing is, as a potential customer, I would not buy from you since you show this information - I don't want everyone to know my full name and what I bought so would shop elsewhere. So you might look at the potential loss of business.

Personally I would change it to focus more on what what just sold, remove the total and the customer full name. I wouldn't show the amount paid because a customer might be pssed if they paid more (didn't have the coupon or whatever) than someone else did for the same item.

Running Opencart v2.2 with multi-stores from https://www.labeshops.com which has links to all my stores.

Your logo is a bit out of touch, is not really working with the rest of the site. The products gets a bit messy on mobiles, some jumps out of their place, however is still usable. As I always say, I would make the images bigger. I seen worse usage of a premium theme, but it could be done better.
