    Gantry 5, Etherial template - The Path Bike Shop

    Posted 4 years 1 month ago
    • Website URL: thepathbikeshop.com/

      Additional Extensions used: Zoo by YOOtheme for the clearance pages, RokAjaxSearch

      Custom Development: removal of color block on the homepage main slideshow, custom HTML footer on all pages

      For the future:
      1.) Adding a page for photos with various albums (still trying to figure out how I want this to work, there are a LOT of photos to display and organize)
      2.) some type of events calendar for all the weekly rides and demo events
      3.) Map for people to get driving directions to the two store locations

      Please feel free to give any feedback on what's here, as well as ideas or suggestions for the future plans. Thanks!

    • Nice site, well done. :)

      My comments would be:

      1. your site takes 26 seconds to load the page for me. The reasons for this are that you are downloading 6.9MB of images (this is a lot - especially for mobiles). Also, you don't appear to be using any compressor (e.g. rokbooster). Are you using "conservative" cache and gzip compression too?

      2. You see to have a lot of markup errors that need addressing too https://validator.w3.org/nu/?doc=http%3A%2F%2Fthepathbikeshop.com%2F

      Regards, Mark.

      Thanks for the feedback! Much appreciated.

      1. I need to figure out what size to make the images in the slideshow; I tried a smaller file size and the images were blurry. I'll have to keep working on this.

      - I've enabled RokBooster, switched from "disabled caching" to "conservative caching", and enabled gzip compression (though it hasn't kicked in yet). Thanks for the info!

      2. I was able to solve some of the "warning" markup errors, but many of the "error" markups I am not sure where to find. Guess I will have to do some figuring on this too.

      I am a newbie at all this, so you've taught me some new things to look out for. Thank you!
