Hello everyone, C3 here, webmaster and general techno-geek from Circle K Strings. I just wanted to give everyone a heads up on whats going on with the site.
We completed the infrastructure upgrades to our servers and site, systems are updated, software is up to date, and now we are moving into the “tune and tweak” stage of the process, which I must say will probably take quite some time…with bugs reported, and enhancement requests submitted…we have some work to do…but its good work.
So whats new? well outside of the obvious look and feel, we have a lot of new products (6,7,8 and 9 string guitar sets for one..) as well as features like customer reviews and portal pages, individual product pages, new tension and weight charts, facebook share links on all pages, and one I am quite proud of, a completely autonomous mobile site for i-devices and androids (but still offering the “full html site” link at the bottom), so alot has changed.
So whats still to come? well again the obvious a new SSL cert will be added and the entire site will be https/ssl activated so you can browse and shop in total security. We are also starting up the affiliate program which will allow customers to post links on the facebook and web pages and every time someone comes to the store form that link, they get a store credit with no limit as to how much you can acquire. Artists pages and photo gallery are coming soon as well as “facebook login” allowing users to use their facebook account as a CKS site account. And last but not least, we are going to be moving away from pay-pal as our primary payment services, allowing you to use your credit card directly with Authorize.net.
So keep checking in, and let us know if you see anything out of the ordinary, from misspelled words (I am horrible when it comes to spelling correct punctuation, ask my mom, the English teacher…) to misrepresented products and prices. post them to the bug reports blog page and we will address them as quickly as possible.
Thanks everyone for your patience, and for your business!!
