New AKD Website - UPDATES

Hey Everyone!

It's been just over 2 weeks since we switched website hosts [June 6, 2011] and I'm still plugging away and getting everything the way I want it. I've noted some items below and included updates where necessary so that you have a pretty good idea of where we stand. Overall, I think it's gone as well as could be expected and I'm very happy with the new site and all of the new features! I would LOVE to know what you think!

Oh...first, a quick reminder about our current SALES!
Looking Good...
  • New Look - everyone seems to really like the new look - YAY!
  • Wish List - lots of comments about how nice it is to have a wish list available
  • Instant Downloads - since there are more downloads available initially, everyone has been much happier with this feature of the new site :)
Just Need a Little Help...
  • How to Download Designs - Please click HERE to see detailed instructions.
  • How to Reset Password - Please click HERE to see detailed instructions.
Needs a Little Work...
  • Shipping/Billing Address Error Message - "Unfortunately one or more items in your cart can't be shipped to your location. Please choose a different delivery address." - Please click HERE to see detailed instructions. I'm looking into how I can fix this so that it's no longer an issue.
  • Password Reset - for some reason the new passwords that I assigned during the "switch" didn't work for everyone on the new site and some had problems getting their password reset. If you're still having problems, please click HERE to see detailed instructions on how to reset your password OR just e-mail me and I'll reset it for you angie@AKDesignsBoutique.com.
  • Links - Some links weren't active, but most have been fixed by now.
  • Designs - some weren't imported - some have been added, but there are still more to add :)
  • Supplies - some weren't imported - some have been added, but there are still more to add :)
If you had a problem with something that isn't in the list above, please let me know so that I can look into it ~ angie@AKDesignsBoutique.com.

Things to Remember:
  • Prior Purchases - Even though your purchases from www.AKDesignsBoutique.com prior to June 6, 2011 aren't visible on the new website under your account information, we have all of those records handy and will happily e-mail any of your designs to you at any time.
  • Write a Review - With the New Website, you can write a review for your favorite products! Let everyone know what products you use and why you LOVE them :)
New Website Features:
  • New Mobile Website - This will make it so much easier to navigate when browsing on your phone. It should work on the following mobile devices: iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Palm Pre, and all Android based devices.
  • Wish List - The wish list is easy to share with friends & family. We've had a lot of requests for a wish list, so I'm very excited that we'll be able to offer one now!
  • Product Reviews - I can't wait until the website has been active for a while and everyone has had a little time to enter product reviews for their favorite items.
  • Compare Feature - this will make it so much easier to compare product details!
  • New Products List - Now you'll always know what products have just been added.
  • Most Popular Products - This list will change based on Product Review Ratings.
  • Recently Viewed Products List -This list will show you all of your recently viewed items.
