The Shop side of things is taking a little longer than expected, I need to enter every item manually & get pics for them uploaded too, as well as configure things a little to get the postage calculators working correctly.

Once the store is up and running it's going to make life easier for everyone, but for now if there's items people wish to purchase or enquire about could we all start using the contact buttons on the 5* site please.

Cheers.

For those an tablets...

If you use the other links other than the home page from a tablet(I'm using safari on an ipad) then you can access the 5 star site. It's just the home page I can't see on my ipad :handgestures-thumbupleft:

Try this link if your on a tablet

OK I believe the 5 star site is now phone and tablet friendly, however I'm still working on getting the shop, pricing and postage calculators working.

Website looks great!

Can you post a few more pics of the custom silicone seals? Is it just the inside missing to fit a plate, or are the ridges gone as well to fit EZ flanges?

Thanks
jim

Yes there'll be a heap more pics going up as time permits, it's a bit difficult trying to get everything done all at once, but we'll get there.

Is it just the inside missing to fit a plate


Yes that is exactly what they are :handgestures-thumbupleft:

Yeah it's going to make things a lot more efficient for customers and us here processing orders, we've been struggling a bit & made a couple of small stuff ups recently due to the nature of using PM's for everything... but we're back on top of our orders now, after mrs macs few weeks off due to surgery so our lean mean packing machine is back on deck :))

Also, "SOON" we'll have a printable glossy coffee table style catalogue you'll be able to download, as well as a few other nice things that will stand out from the rest.

Something to really look forward to is the next edition of Modern Distiller Magazine too, but I wont give too much away about that as I'm sure the Doc is going to want to make an announcement about this issue in due course, but this is going to be a bumper issue that you wont want to miss.

Things are really moving along nicely with the new shop, a little slow perhaps, but we just want it right with no glitches or mishaps, and we really appreciate everyone's patience waiting for us to get it done.

Cheers.

Really liking the layout of the store! Not something I have seen before, and it's really easy to navigate through.

Not sure if this has been mentioned before but there are a few little layout issues with the main site itself, when viewed on a larger screen; see below.

Not a huge issue, but something that could always be put on the back burners for later to help make the layout more 'fluid' throughout the site.

Keep up the great work guys!

Yeah I noticed some stuff like that distillnation, I figured it was just tidying up that would be addressed in time.

No worries Doc. Happy to help out.
Like I said before, not a huge problem, just a little something I picked up on.

Yeah. I'm looking forward to seeing the 'final' site, especially if what we're seeing now is only the beginning. I really like the bubbler on the links page (I think it is).

I am busy getting the next issue of the magazine started. but hope to get the corrections and niggles fixed on the website in the next week. I really appreciate your help guys...sometimes you look at things you are woorking on for so long you become blind to the small stuff. Cheers.
Doc

P.S. the new magazine is shaping up to be a beauty. thanks to those who are contributing and helping.
