Thank you to everyone who came out to Animarathon! Now that the con circuit season is about to get in full swing here at Disjointed Images (ACEN in 29 days!) we’re focusing on what new designs to have on display. I’ve got some great ones already in the works, but as always, you’ll have to come find us to see them. Past designs are always found on our shop. We also now have HEARTS for the photo buttons in red and silver! These work just like the colored rings, only in a heart shape (with an open center for the picture). If you’ve got any requests or suggestions please post…
The new store is up and running – and I have to take a few minutes to share my adoration for our new software that is running it: Ubercart. Powered by Drupal, Ubercart is a free, open source e-commerce solution that allows for endless customization and integration with nearly any site. Even better, it requires little knowledge of php or sql etc to implement. Granted, I do know some of this and that only made the setup faster and even more fluid. Prior, I was working with OsCommerce. A nice cart to be sure, but just way too code heavy, and requiring massive amount of rewriting of full php pages…
We have a new store! This one is much cleaner and easier to check out. For anyone who may have had difficulties before, I invite you over to the new shop. Grand Re-Opening! We have a new account system too! Now you can choose an easy to remember username. You do not have to create an account to make a purchase, but by doing so, you will be able to save your shopping cart, and have all of your billing and shipping information pre-filled whenever you come back. You’ll also be able to receive exclusive updates and discount specials.
Web Development (Or “The Hell of Coding”)
I’ve completely lost track of how many hours Melanie and I have spent on coding the new site and shopping cart system. The good news is that all of our pages should be updated soon, including the launch of a new store front powered by Ubercart (review coming soon).
The new demo is now available! I’ve updated it to allow you to try the Japanese hiragana tileset. I’ve also added multiplayer support, and the ability to save and come back to a game. The new cd jacket cover art is done. Can’t wait to see it printed. I understand there has been some trouble with the checkout, and paypal not properly showing everything secure. This is NOT affecting your info! It was just the picture displayed in the top header, and has been fixed. Thank you for your understanding, and if you hesitated before, please try your purchase again.
