    I like the blue but the buttons on the top and side menu are really hard to read.

    You asked for it. So take it like a man.

    The Buttons colours are wrong. Top part of words not that clear.

    Picture next to latest news and Popular articles is not clear. What is it, a globe?

    Heading bar, too much open space.
    Do the currency fit into the heading? Could go under "Other Menu"

    The date block, how important is it to tell me the date and time? Really do not need this, this block can go.

    Who's Online block is wasted space. Either drop it or make it space in heading bar, at the right. Actually signing on and I see "We have 2 members online "
    gives a feeling of a not so active site. So I will remove this block. Maybe nice for you to see. But from advertising or promoting your site, it is not good for a guest to see that he is the only person online.

    Shopping cart can move over to where the date block is. That is where you will find Kalahari, Exclusive books, other online sites shopping cart. Go with familiarity.

    On the forum, the block at the bottom, Forum stats, Yellow text on white background = not readible. All yellow text is "bad". See example
    Welcome, Riaan

    Why have a product scroller box, and another random 6 product bar at the top?

    Try to balance the bottom of the screen. Got 3 main blocks that ends at different points.

    Fully agree with Riaan. Lanzo is this just a theme to the current application that you running or was it a total redo?

    I think its a cool site just needs to be streamlined like all things in life you will only know what works once u use it. I like the look tho but it is much slower than it used to be and it can be frustrating

    Hi lanzo, there's a little too much blue in the page. Some of the headings were def easier to read on the old site. The white gave it a clear background.
    Don't drop the new one, just add some small improvements and I am sure it will be great.

    Overall the design looks quite nice, but those buttons are very distracting.

    Try changing just the background from blue to white, see what that looks like.

    Current changes looks like you (or Ferdie) only played around with the stylesheet.css
    Then again I have not played with websites for a few years.
