I realize this is a VERY old thread... but the last few weeks, on those occasions I stop in at the main RiffTrax site I've noticed a dramatic change from what it has been. So figured I'd dig up this old 'Site Redesign' thread to post the changes I've seen. [Wasn't functional enough to comment before now (probably still shouldn't be taxing my brain this much yet).]
This is what I see if I try to look at the main catalog:
and, to show 'between item' space:
Is that really how it is supposed to look? Because it doesn't 'read' right. The "Add to Cart" buttons look like 'topic dividers', yet they come in the middle of a description. [Even so, being so large, they don't seem to 'go' with a particular item, and have no specific information on them as to which item any particular 'Add to Cart' button goes to, so would likely be confusing to the average person/new visitor.] There are no longer any scoring stars present in the main catalog (which, if I were new here, would be of interest to me, and would not want to have to open up each and every one of the - what, 200? - shorts to see which were thought to be the best, much less the nearly 150 feature films). The end of the description of one item actually is closer to the picture of the next item than any text related to that second item is (with no divider between them).
It seems like a rather large step backwards in ease of use for new converts to the RiffTrax lifestyle.
I just thought I'd give some feedback, in case that were of interest. [Hence my looking for a thread called "Site Redesign" to post this in, even if the thread initially referred to a much older site redesign.]
