Had no problems on my end.   Be nice if we could submit our pledge payments through the site though!

I do want to look into that, it's on the to do list to get to down the road.

I think that the search results could be more useful (see attached)

A thumbnail would be awesome.

I am not sure what the 'Created" date provides to the customer but you could probably remove it especially since it doesn't appear to follow the defaul "Newest First" ordering that the search engine has

Is "Supplied unassembled and unpainted." necessary for the search results?

Given that the pictures are of assembled and painted minis?

Probably.

I am working on an option for better search results, should have movement on it early next week once I get Mikes okay. I had hoped the new release of the shopping cart software would have provided a better option and they had one for "Smart Search", except the SKU field was not included as searchable. So I went back to the normal search plugin, since you could search SKU. The search results page is powered by the main CMS. I did remove the create date.

As of tonight I have searched the new accounts created for people that have IWM credit on the old store. I have added it to those that I found. Will check again tomorrow.

I am working on an improved search option tonight. Also had to update checkout workflow due to an odd issue with Paypal Express.

If you see a missing product, please let me know. I thought I had already checked and created any items that came out after my initial product import to the new store.

New search is available, is located at the top of the screen near the IWM logo. On mobile it is also there as well.

It will display search results like the product page or you can select a category and hit search.

Okay, I signed up for a new account yesterday, and today it's not recognizing that account and refuses to let me log in but simultaneously refuses to let me create a new account.

I apologize to anyone who could not access the battletech category and three other ones over night. I have fixed the issue, I was creating and testing adding links to the main product categories to under Online store and did not realize when I set the permissions on that link it affect the viewing of the category from the main listing. Still getting the hang of how the permissions work across everything.

The first four main categories are on the list, I will get adding the other today.

Well, it seems to be working now.  Looks like whatever it was was a result of the issue you mentioned?

Any chance that we could get the Arrow IV Regulator turret as a separate part in the store?

If you're like me, make sure you use your user name and not your email address when you try to log back in. I got stuck on that for a good half hour, even though the system was working properly, and telling me what to do. I just didn't make the connection.

No, I checked that.  I think it had something to do with the other issues that Speck mentioned last night since it was working this morning.

I added another way to find Product categories to the new store, when you hover over Online Store addition options appear below for the top level Categories. Tomorrow I am going to add the initial set of categories for Battletech to its spot.

The new search option, will change the category selected depending on what category you are viewing.

Still getting used to the new store. It isn't difficult to navigate, but when clicking on menus it seems to sometimes take me to the wrong category -- eg. an adjacent button.

Otherwise it looks clean and runs much faster. Also just managed to sneak in with the new store coupon. Not that I needed the miniatures, but... gotta catch 'em all?

What device were you using to look at the website?

I'm using Chrome on my PC. I included a screen grab so you can see what I'm talking about it. The button height for the lower rows seems much higher than you would think.

Merkava Tank (20-5027) is misspelled (Merkeva)
makes it difficult to search ...  :)

I will see about adding some separation between rows.

That does not work for me. I still get this when I try to login:
The webmaster has forbidden your access to this site  [this is on a blank white page]

Same user name and email as my account here.
I tried the contact us thing and it's still forked.
So I'm mentioning it here.

EDIT: to add that this wasn't happening until I created an account for the RalParthaLegacy site.
Which I can log onto without a problem.

EDIT2: I just tried to reset my Iron Wind password, but it failed as I did not submit the correct username.
Which is a problem as I did not have a username.
Going to try to reregister.

EDIT: Now I'm a hacker. And I apparently DID have a username.

I have to get dressed for work. I won't be able to do anything else until after 8 or 9PM.
