Okay, some notes:

1) Not all items showing – eg. D1S not appearing.
2) Resize down http://m.intl-outdoor.com/media/wysiwyg/slideshow/d18n.jpg – it’s currently 664kb; resize it to the same width of the image of the D4V2 in the scroller (http://m.intl-outdoor.com/media/wysiwyg/slideshow/2483.jpg) which is 153kb, around 23% of the size. More of a way to make the site load faster and reduce your data transfer.
3) Currency cookie! Please drastically extend the length of time this stays. Currently only valid for 1 hour; for those of us not using USD, this is a bit of a pain to have to change every time we visit the site. 7 days, maybe? Longer?

4) The “New Product Added” section – maybe make that to only show products added in the last 2-3 months, at the longest. Newest items first.
5) Could maybe compress some items; an example would be the XPL HI section, instead of having 9 options currently (each of the three CCTs either bare, 16mm, 20mm MCPCB) it could be three – Bare Emitter, 16mm MCPCB, 20mm MCPCB – and inside there, choose your temperature option. Same could be said for the Osram Flat White – only needs one item instead of three, but with options inside of the item.

That one is up to your own style, though – If you prefer to have one item per exact option, that makes sense. I’m just looking at it from a user-experience standpoint.

And my last wish-list item – I’d love to see more spare parts for your light up, eg. replacement glass, buttons, driver boards, etc for the D4/D4V2/D1 etc etc. Time cost of putting them up on the store might be very minimal, but would save time for both yourself and customers by not having to email to ask for custom parts.

1. The D1S stock is low, that is why we did not add it to the new site, there will be D1SV2 in the near future.
2. Will fix it.
3. Will look into it, and fix it.
4. Yes, we are still working on it.
5. Nice suggestion, will follow it.
6. Yes, we will consider it.

For the D4V2, I noticed on the old site there was an option to have either the raised ring around the button or to have it flat. I’m not seeing this option on the new site.

Edit: It’s there now, thanks!

Hello Hank,
the login window, on the new page, is not encrypted, it is not safe!
Will this be fixed?
The old page works as before.

Wouldn’t it be possible to transfer our data? So that we can view the history of our orders.

And I don’t see quad mcpcbs. For carclo 10622.

The new web site looks great! Nice work.

I regret the loss of my order history, particularly since I placed an order the day before the new site went up, but as long as the order still gets processed I can live with it. Smile

This should be a real improvement going forward.

And now I want a new D1S. Davie

Thanks for all the work you put into making your customer’s lives better.

The old data is not lost, they are saved in the old site data base, however, we have no idea how to transfer it into the new site.

If it’s still possible to access the old data, might not be a bad idea to send out an email to let people know that the old site is being removed at some stage, so people can log in and print their orders as PDFs or similar – that way they can keep a manual copy for their records. Maybe a month or two’s grace period?

The new site looks awesome! I just ordered a D4S two days ago and hope it does not get lost in the transition. Next order will be much easier on this site. Thank you!

Yes, the old site will still be accessable for long time so that the customers can view their order history, just that the old data can not be transfered to the new site since those two sites have completely different systems.

GREAT job on the new site! Looks good! Thank you.

… question on the new D4S. Why would someone need to select an aux led color , when there are programmable ones??? Am I missing something? Thanks.
