Right now I’m trying to clean the site up for a server move, and the redesign took a little longer than last weekend. I was in good shape until the “hack attack”, and that’s put me about a week behind where I’d like to be. The good news is that after the show on the weekend, I’m off for the rest of the week, so I’ll have some time to do all of the redesign tasks while my paint dries on my massive shelves.
I’m really happy with the front page of this design, it’s tons cleaner than ever before, and looks pretty awesome if I do say so myself. I’ll need to spend some time on a bunch of the inner pages before I’m happy with them, but the initial design that I’ve created looks pretty solid.
The thing that concerns me is that there are a ton of support pages that will need a lot of work to get where I need them to be. I’m not likely to find those pages until after I’ve uploaded the new stuff.
The worst part is that every modification I make to the code takes me further away from the original source code, which makes upgrading to the newest version an impossibility at this point.
Too bad too, because I’d love to upgrade from 3.2 of my shopping cart to 4.1, but it’s unlikely at this point. I’m more apt to re-write the entire thing in Magento rather than continuing on with the ASP version that’s on the site now.
