Sneak Peak of New BETA Site!
After countless months of work we are nearing the point of going live with our new site. We hope this will be a smooth changeover and no problems will arrise from the change. It is now time to let our customers have at the BETA site so we can hopefully nail down any remaining bugs before it goes live.
- Check address book to insure your address was correctly merged
- Make sure shipping methods show up in checkout
MSN & AOL Customers
- Check to see if login works
- Same as above, but Ive done a lot of testing here so it should be fine
If anyone wishes to checkout on the new site just choose Money Order because you are not taken to a secure site, and any orders placed on the new system will not be processed as actual orders.
This site is running off an old backup of nutraplanet.com so accounts created in the last month or so will not be in the system. Feel free to create another account to play around with. Any changes you make to your preferences, or accounts you create on the new system will be deleted before the site goes live so changes you make will disappear.
Oh... And the link to the new site.... (wait for Sam to post i cant seem to post a link yet)
New features include... group buys, supplement facts, and a slick new look
If you run across a bug, or if your addresses are not correct on the new site please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your account email, and the problem you are seeing so I can take care of it ASAP.

nice site design, although i could do better :bb: haha. looks good though! cant wait for those sales!

Now everyone go play on it and find any bugs, inconsistencies, and please provide feedback. Remember...DO NOT ENTER YOUR BILLING INFO because the SSL is not active for the beta test site. Also, you cannot place an actual order on the beta side, this is strictly for fun and will help us to "custom fit" the site to your needs.

Love the new design. In terms of suggestions:
-Make a link for Specials Section
-Image around 'my account - shopping cart - check out' loads noticably slower than the rest of the top banner (for IE 6; looks fine in firefox)
-At the bottom of the page 'warrant' is spelled 'warrent' (unless you mean the band )
Other than that, looks great and looks like it was well tested prior to introducing it!
08-03-2006, 12:35 PM
Thanks Baptizer I think once IE caches the images it should begin to load faster...
08-03-2006, 12:44 PM
Np! Wish I had better suggestions for you (and the team). I have some other ones, but not sure if they are worth mentioning. For instance:
-No 'advanced search' option. I am assuming this may have been omitted on purpose. I have never used 'advanced search' before.
-When logged into your account, there is a menu on the right that displays your order history. If you click the shopping cart icon next to the product you ordered, it does not take you to the product page or add the item to your cart. Instead it directs you to the frontpage of the beta site.

keep em coming Baptizer

I am about to hit you something very anal, but on the following page I would suggest to make a few formatting changes.
I think there needs to be some consistency on what is bolded, the font size, etc. For instance, 'credit cards - ' is small text, however 'money orders -' is bolded and a larger font. Also, there is only one space between the mail order address and the 'Shipping Options' text, however, there are two between it and the paragraph it is associated with.
Seriously, I am in no slamming anyone or whatever. I run a community site and, typically, my brother does most of the website developement and I stick to proof-reading, creating the forums, etc. Since nutraplanet is now the only place I order from, I feel as though I should be a bit more critical than I normally would
08-03-2006, 12:58 PM
No worries Baptizer...I like all the constructive criticism and sincerely appreciate you taking the time to proof read and bring these things to our attention. Great job
Karma to you my friend!

Thanks, stryder! Appreciate the Karma!
nricciar mentioned group buys, however, I am having a hard time figuring out whether this feature/option has been implemented yet. I took a peek around, but couldn't find anything.
Overall, excellent job. Really thankful for what you offer the supplement-purchasing community!
Edit: One final observation: It looks like on some product pages, at the bottom you are given the option to 'write a review'. However, if no one ever wrote a review you are not given the option at the bottom of the page. For instance:
A product you can write a review about (given the option): http://www.nutraplanet.com:3000/prod.../sesathin.html
A product you cannot write a review about (not given the option): http://www.nutraplanet.com:3000/prod...taxanthin.html

- specials section is renamed to featured products and is in the navigation barOriginally Posted by Baptizer
- This is a problem with IE and its inability to support transparency in PNG images (IE7 will fix this)... use Firefox
- Thanks for the heads up
Love the help, when you look at these pages all day long its easy to overlook simple things like spelling errors.

Group buys do exist currently... check out cAMPHIBOLIC, Anagen, or Methoxy-TXT "Buy Together and Save" below the product image.

Ohhh! *Slaps self* lol. The first thing I thought when I heard group buys was like collecting money from my buddies and placing an order for a group buy of a product (and getting the product at a lesser price because I ordered a crap load)! My bad.Originally Posted by nricciar
Again, great job. When you are focusing on the bigger items, some of those smaller ones get between the cracks.

You should have a section with a couple of articals over viewing the basics so when new Body Builders find your site they know what to look for, Multi, Fish oil, etc
And over view of goal pacific products, like fat burners or test boosters etc.
Nice site btw
Hey stryder did you get my email?!
08-03-2006, 01:56 PM
Yes, responded back but never heard back from you...maybe in your junk folder? If not, hit me again with the items in your cart as I don't have access to them at the moment with the new site changes.Originally Posted by Dr Liftalot
...edit: if this was not what your email was about please forgive me. I may be thinking about someone else. I haven't quite memorized and matched up everyones AM user names, real names, and email address...yet (but I'm working on it)--LOL!
08-03-2006, 02:12 PM
I have a suggestion regarding the main page. Where specials, new items added, etc. You may want to put complete borders around the item groups. Not each item, just to section off the specials, added items, etc. There are short horizontal borders now but I think the addition would be easier on the eyes.
08-03-2006, 06:44 PM
layout looks really clean and professional, just like the service
bring on the sales!!
08-03-2006, 08:07 PM
Hnmm haven't gotten anything yet, i'll send you another msg.
Keep me posted when you get it.
08-04-2006, 09:39 AM
Maybe you guys should 'barter' people into testing the site! Maybe a free bottle of some new product or something for each problem identified
08-05-2006, 04:40 AM
Hmmm...that would be nice but after all that Stryder has done for us it should be our duty to help him out when we can.
P.S. Of course if the offer is made, I'm in for promo products for beta testing...lol.
