Hello fellow auction site owners. I would like some feedback on my site. http://www.smartsauctions.com Please look at the following:

Home page layout
Search box
auction body layout(I know that some of the spacing is off, still working on some issues but would like feedback on the general layout.)
Thumbnail sizes

Things I would like to add in the future:

Reserve price auctions
Mandatory fields when registering (real name, address etc.)
ID verification system when registering
Multiple item auctions
User Stores
Multiple templates for auction page layouts that can be chosen when auction is listed.
Relist auction feature from 'my auction' page
froogle data feed for fixed price listings
Catagory subcatagories

Anyway, I hope you will take the time to view my site and give feedback so that I can make it even better!

Thanks!

Hi!
May I ask you, how you got those featured auctions box on top of the auctions?

Do you have a testaccount and a test room? I would like to see, if you have the same bugs than I have on my auction...

Which mods do you have installed (like anti-sniper mod?)

With a lot of swearing and hair pulling it is amazing what you can accomplish! Anyway, I just edited the templates/subsilver/auction_header.tpl as below(the edit is really messy as I commented out lots of code just incase I wanted to go back to the original code):

Code:

thanks a lot, it helped me getting the box the way I want...

OK, about your auction... I didn't get far, you have something wrong in the templates, I have to scroll and when I enter a roon, the templates are on top of each other. For example I don't even get to see the "new offer" button, because there is a special box over it...
I guess you have set pixels instead of 100% width set?

do you have the anti sniper mod installed?

do you mind, if I start a test auction to test buy it now and the snti sniper feature? Those features are not working correct on my auction...

Hmmm. No idea of what you mean by the template being screwed up. The new offer button shows up fine for me and shows up fine on other computers I use. What browser are you using? If you could do a screen shot and post it that would help too. Thanks for the feedback!!

Oh, about the 'new offer' button are you talking about on the index page? If so I removed the new offer button as I have put a link under 'my auctions' for people to click to 'sell an item'.

here's the screenshot:


I think it has something to do with the view you have set to your PC...

that is really strange I have looked at my site from about 7 or 8 other computers with windows explorer and firefox and have never seen anything that looks remotely like that screen shot.....

Try refreshing the page. The screen shot does not have my thumbnails that are in the 'specials' block...

Are you viewing the page @ 1024X768?

Hmmm I just tried about 10 different settings on two different computers and I am still not getting the problem you are having.

It looks like the page has not finished loading on your system. What kind of internet connection are you on?

must have something to do with these kind of settings, I have 800 x 600, had similar problem like this on my site, too...
it also depends on size of screen you have, if you ahve a large text and a smalls creen, this might happen... try a small screen with large text settings...

The smallest screen I have is at work (17 inch)... looks like you are the only person with a small screen left in the world... Razz

Looks like my layout works for about 99% of the world so I am not going to worry about tweeking it for the other 1% unless I start getting lots of traffic and people complain about the issue. Wink

I have an average size monitor, could be 17"
my settings have about 6-7 % of internet users according to statistics.

I still can't duplicate your issue.

Can someone else go take a look at my site to see if they are having the same problem with the template layout?

Changed all the Url's to rewrite like:

http://www.smartsauctions.com/offer-95.html

Notice the hyphen instead of an underscore. I did this as google likes that format better.

You might want to do the SEO mod from www.able2know.com

This will allow you to do a rewrite mod on both your forum pages and the auction pages. The mod will also disable SID only for guests and after a user logs in the rewrite mod will disable too. This mod will also help with bandwidth as 'guests' will not cause phpbb to pull certain stats unless someone logs in. This can be very usefull if Google indexs your site. Anyway I added the mod from able2know except the SID function as I have used the mod by cyberalien located here:

http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=185839

The cyberalien mod seems to do the same thing as the SID mod included in the SEO Mod from able2know.

Please review my site with the new mods and try logging in to see how everything switches.

I am hoping that with these new mods that google will index more than just the top page of my site.

I'll check out your site in a second, I just wanted to point out that this mod works slicker than snot for bots:

Edit: Very nice website. Smile I couldn't play around with it too much without a test account, but I like the layout and stuff. Smile
