    I know of those sites - I actually have profiles on them. The point of building it myself is to give me practice with web design. Again, why I'm here asking for criticism. If you have any feedback, it...

    I can appreciate that you're trying to build your site from scratch, but why not use a portfolio hosting site that offers free templates until you're more comfortable with web design? There are plenty...

    If you're not sure you're making enough, figure out you income per hour and take into account all your expenses and overhead and blah blah blah. It takes some time to put together the spreadheets, or...

  • I need a debug - have at it - review

    This isn't necessarily a crit. There's a whole list already of things to do and change on this website both visibly and functionally (misspellings, better layout on a few pages,etc.). We have some that say that they can't save, and others say that it is perfectly fine. I think we need a broader spectrum of people to test with. So I do have permission to post it here.


    The main thing we need to determine is if the designing tool is functional enough to launch the site.

    So what I really need you to do is run through the entire process from choosing a product to designing it, saving it and editing the design later.

    So the questions are:

    1) With no instructions (who reads those anyway?) can you get it done?

    2) Can you save your design?

    3) Can you edit the design from your accounts profile once it is saved?

    4) Name the top things that you feel need the most work.


    This link does have an affiliate tracking attached to it so we can test that functionality as well.

    If something does go wonky, screen captures welcome.

    Saving is sketchy. It does not work for the "Design on a product" and is buggy on the "Start with a blank page"

    Cancel is spelled wrong on the create a new item popup.

    I can only keep one saved design on each the design a product and blank page. If I create and save a new one it oversaves a previous design.

    I could not get a custom picture to upload (my avatar) It just kept spinning

    I started off simple



    saved it and reopened it. Notice the background color shift and how it shrunk.



    Tried it with curved type - which needs to be tweaked. Tracking/Kerning is terrible (some fonts are better than others) and spaces leave way too much of a gap.



    saved it and reopened it.



    Then I got fancy.



    saved and reopened it ... Lost it all

    Some advice is profound, some is clever. The above post is a good example of both.

      Thank you MD!

      So you ended up on that other side of the fence. I have a feeling more are going to join you.
