Have you seen the new look and feel of the store “Grid” view? What about the product pages with the new “You May Also Like” list?


What do you think?
Bigger product images
More products related to the product you are viewing on the product page

I wondered why the new store was so much less efficient in displaying lists of products than the old store. The old store was four thumbnails across. Moving to three meant that you had 25% more pages to dig through to get to the end of the list. Seemed counter-intuitive to me.

Now I see why they did it. The new thumbs are rather nice. Not quite so necessary to get into the page view unless you are actually interested in something, rather than just what to see what it is.

I see quite a lot of pixelation on the new larger product images and with all the extra huge advertising images the site is weighty on mobile devices.
perhaps it’s time for a mobile specific site seeing how tablets and smartphones are being hyped as the post pc future blank stare

It’s alright. Though, the product vendors list feel a bit crowded and PA names aren’t hyper-linked to their product pages anymore again if more than one are credited.

That, and as JOdle said, the bigger thumbnails, while definitely let’s us have better views of the product promos, adds more pages to dig through…

Daz guys I actually like this new look and feel of the Daz web site.I definitely like the navigation better.
. I know people hate change ,I am one of the biggest ones that do hate change.,.
But as a web site developer I also understand it takes time to get the bugs worked out and add all the feature to a site and i have seen a lot of improvement s with the daz site in the last couple of weeks.
So I am sure with little more time things will improve even more.  I look forward to new changes and products to be released.

Though I have to admit as Daz moves forward with genesis and away from gen4 and poser compatibilities,. I maybe spending a lot less money here than I use to. it was nice to be able to buy a model or product that worked in both programs ..
Now days , I’m just filling my runtimes with products that poser and older daz3a can share.,  more bang for my buck so to speak.
This crappy economy has made it so I can’t afford to feed both poser and daz4 programs, with different models for that I am truly sorry because there is some very nice gen5 products I won’t be able to use.
But the new web site is awesome

I do like the grid layout with bigger thumbs. grin Same number of items per page, less wasted space.

The “You may also like” part adds little value, IMO. Whatever search it’s using seems to come up with the Superhero Bundle and Reby Sky for Genesis no matter what page I view. smirk Perhaps part of the problem is that when the PA is Daz, it is not using the original artist as the source of related items, and there are too many items owned by Daz for the related items to be meaningful. Examples: Glymmer by Thorne and Sarsa is owned by Daz, and it comes up with NO related items. Briana comes up without a link to the Briana Bundle, Briana’s Culaith,  or Briana’s Temple. That’s not helpful. Kay did come up with a link to Kay’s Leathers, tho. The search engine definitely needs work.

I like that thst the shop is easier with bigger previews and that the bugs are dropping off.

could we have a safe for work filter of some sort

I feel a lot of promos are done very tasefully now and not like a mens magazine
but some products are out there

i would like to check the store more often but i do not like to be questioned for what the uninformed consider inappropriate browsing in public places

thanks for all your hard work

I love the bigger thumbs! It’s great on my laptop and desktop but seeing them so clearly on my tablet is just the best! Thanks DAZ! smile

Yes. A definite improvement, looks far more dynamic than the previous format.

I really like the new larger thumbnails/imagaes, they make it much easier to assess the item and whether it is something you would be interested in (and also to appreciate the art of the render). I’ll happily trade off fewer items per page for the ease of viewing them this gives (and most of the time I have 60/page selected anyway).

Only downside is I’ve noticed a couple of thumbnails that weren’t really flattered by the larger view, including one which looked to have slightly skewed proportions, but that’s a handful in the nearly 1000 I skimmed past over the weekend. I also spotted one image where the list of compatible figures (it was one of the characters that comes with V3, Girl, SP3 and L3 versions) in the image was nearly obscured by the title and price overlay at the bottom, so maybe that stripe could be a touch more translucent.

Running the ‘You May Also Like’ images as a sidebar down the right-hand edge of the page is the best idea I’ve seen for it yet. It isn’t intrusive, yet it’s there if you want to look.

I also really like the overlaying of the discount percentage on the top of the image, with this set of changes in place I think the new store has now surpassed the old one.

Hmmmmmmm, not quite IMHO.  People are getting burned because we don’t have the sale-end dates back in the store.

On-topic, it’d be great to have them up with the discount percentage in the store’s grid view!  (“Save 30% through 8/31/2012”, for example — DAZ can reduce the fontsize on “through” so it doesn’t take up much room.)  Off-topic, we at least need sale-end dates back on the product pages before I can agree that the new store surpasses the old one (and that’s aside from issues like coupon handling/restrictions and file-size info).
