As for anyone that would like to see an order form (A FAKE ONE).
This is an example of what I see on my order list for an individual order.
First, after you Submit your order, you will see this:

I had asked if you needed to hire someone to help with the site i'd be interested. No need to pay unless there is profit and I do good work. I am not in the US but I try to find ways of making some US currency for buying psn games etc
Anyway, It would seem at first glance that the main need for the service would be to download what is considered illegal. Have your orders been legal and what kind of things do ppl ask to have downloaded? Just out of curiosity
IonBladez - First off congrats again (I know i said so last night, but hey you've an actual thread now!)
Secondly - re the IE problems, this is likely due to the fact that MS like to do things differently and they therefore break some/many of the HTML/CSS styling rules - I suspect you're using CSS? (If not, why not?!) but if you are there are somethings that just won't work properly in IE without a work around.
For example, the ticker you have FIXED to the bottom of the browser (in FF anyway) will ALWAYS appear at the very bottom of your actual web page in IE because of the above - There are a number of sites out there with details on how to get around the IE BUGS - try googling for "CSS IE workarounds".
P.s. MS being MS it also depends on the version of IE you're browsing with because they support some features in some versions, but not in others (they're nice like that!)
To help you test the site from various browsers try this link - it's absolutely fantastic. Basically it will render your site in a large number of browsers and take screen captures of the site for you to view.
Good luck and i hope the above helps you sort out the final issues.
Hey was it my comment that made you change the layout?
I didn't mean to critize; its just my industry i work in (Software Design/Development) I work with Web Technologies day to day.
If you want i can do a prototype mock-up of a web design for you; or even do it for you - no cost at all. I love to do freebies to show off some of my work. No catches at all.. (well apart from adding it to my port-folio LOL)
Its completely up to you - so let me know if you would like that? i'll wait for your reply.
Well I actually just checked the comments page now that you mention it (LOL).
Ya, well I got sick of the navigation design for it, I thought maybe people wouldn't notice the top and bottom bars.
So I moved it around a bit, and cleaned up the css some. Still doesn't look pretty on IE yet, but I'm hoping I'll fix that one soon.
This layout was supposed to be of original design, not like a big (super fancy) or crowed layout.
I have REALLY been busy on the ordering system.
We now support INTERNATIONAL ORDERS (for the listed countries).
More countries are sure to come soon, If I receive requests for those countries.
But I hand-typed my entire site on NOTEPAD.
Every little code was done on Windows Notepad. And that's no lie.
In order to keep it flexible, I used notepad.
The ordering form is now 100% usable.
I have also implemented an ORDER STATUS script in PHP.
The user puts in their order number and it directs them to their order page.
I do note, that in fact it works 100%. But for now my download status system is NOT automatic. But alerts and email alerts ARE working.
So ya, if you'd like to send me a template (well a screenshot) - I'd love to see how it looks.
I'm right now still looking for help with this (Originally my friend Michael has lost interest up until 20 minutes ago).
But I do state that everything is function AND WORKING as of this point.
I will be adding an Order counter on the front page so people will be able to see how many orders have been Submitted and Complete.
This is exactly what I'll use too:
Welcome to burn2u!
We have had XX orders,
And XX of them are complete.
I'll get right on this in a few minutes as well.
I want this to be EASY to navigate not with tons of links.
But as I said, if you would send me an email with a template *or screenshot of a template!* That'd be grand.
