How about the ability to add custom product fields in the same location as the Price, Model Number, Availability etc?

Since product attributes/options are currently being implemented and we're giving feedback on the changes, I actually think that's a fair question - not to mention a good idea.

Not a huge distinction, but there is one.

I don't get that logic at all. Users always see the progress eitherway.
True, but there's wasted space to the right of those options. When you're down to the fifth/sixth part of checkout, quite a lot of space is wasted. On top of this, the 'true' content starts slightly lower on each page since the previous step is now listed above it, so everything is pushed down. Things should be positioned as consistently as possible.

Worst of all, users can't see the next step until they reach the bottom of the form. Having them all at the top means they can see all of the steps, and where they're currently at, before they even look at the form.

Not a major issue by any means, but if the same effect can be achieved with better use of screen space, why not do it?

This you can find in the first post of this thread...


"BUT PLEASE DO MAKE GENERAL COMMENTS OR SUGGESTIONS THAT COULD BE GOOD CHANGES"

I think this is a good place for changes suggestions

A suggestion on changing something that is already in 1.5.0 *ALPHA* is something completely differed then asking for something that is not yet in it.

A change is: Instead of having the button on the right, make it on the left.

A feature request is: I want the Nigerian Scam Payment Module.

CypherUK was suggesting a change to something that is already in the Alpha release, so that's definitely not a feature request.

Maybe so, but I haven't seen all that many 'feature requests' in this topic anyway.

Oh well, whatever. If I'm not interested I just don't read it.

I finally have internet access back and only just started reading comments about 1.5.0.

Its probably going to be a few more weeks before its finished. I have taken notice that a few people don;t like the mega menu. I can still change the design if its required.

I don;t know if anyone noticed but magento themes look good because they can take advantage of the full width of the paghes with banners. take away the banners and magento themes look bad.

this is the original front page design i had in mind:

A bit too plain for my tastes, plus not everyone will want a banner. I'm glad you went away from that concept.

A good solution to the menu issue would be to give users a choice. Just choose the menu to use, and voila. Or give users an editor within OC where you can insert CSS and JS for a menu.

You have done a splendid job with this version. Kudos!

There are several people (including me) who don't like megamenu. There are, however, also quite a few that do like it.

In my opinion, it would be best to continue what you have already started philosophically: minimize hardcoding items, and try to convert pretty much everything on the screen into modules (I know at least SapporoGuy and Qphoria would agree :-) )

If you convert the megamenu into a module, then you can have it switched on by default to lure in new users who are after making their website look like Target's or Debenham's. And to anybody who doesn't like megamenus, you can point to the fact that it can be turned off from admin.

This sort of flexibility in every aspect of OC (including, say, 1 column, 2 column and 3 column layouts), would make it a thought leader in ecommerce software, no less.

I think Craig has it spot on:
Before you buy an eCommerce template check out the Product pages wrote: Those templates with the lovely graphics on the Home page, the AJAX sliders and image galleries… they look beautiful. They look tempting.

if you’re doing things right, most of your visitors will never even look at the Home page. Unless you’re Amazon the only impression visitors will have of your site is from looking at a Product page. If you’ve done your SEO properly, and I hope you have, someone searching for one of your products will find that product’s page. If they like what they see they will buy it, or look for more information.

If a visitor doesn’t like what they see they will leave and go to a competitor. If visitors do look at the Home page, it’s only because they decided to check out another page on your site after looking at a Product page.
Just something to bear in mind...

I just finished a mega menu on one of my sites using http://cherne.net/brian/resources/jquer ... ntent.html

You should check it out. It works better than the default jQuery .hover() function (or in this case css :hover)

This has a timer and works quite like what Jacob Nielsen recommends. Does it solve the diagonal problem too? It's hard to tell from the webpage - it doesn't require diagonal movements.
