I´ve updated my webpage 

Finally... I did it... Gee. Its not my favorite hobby But it feels good. Webpages tend to slowly fall apart if you dont maintain them.
There´s probably a lot of errors, but I´ve tested it on a couple of computers and it seems to work....

You are very welcome to visit:

RE: I´ve updated my webpage (in reply to Anders Eliasson

Very Nice Anders,

I like the bigger photos a lot. The only thing I can see to change maybe is on the flamenco page where it says

"click on the photos to go to a page with more photos."

Maybe you can change this to Click on Photos to Enlarge or something.

I like how the flamenco guitars look more modern, but I wish you could have kept the peghead blanca somewhere in the flamenco guitar section just to show a more traditional guitar as well!

Very nice though and I think it is an improvement.

Was there a section with videos of Emilio Maya and yourself playing before?

I like it, I think it is nice that you have photos representin your more recent work as well.

I think your page looks good, i guess you are still updating since i couldnt acces things twice and things.

Anyways I am a big fan of your guitars, and its nice that you are making an update for your site.

I just have to say it out again that i cannot leave my blanca alone except when i sleep, even though i wish i didnt have to, it is very sexy

I like it!
One small error I discovered: when on the page "fotos" the link to "trabajo" (tab) doesn't work. It's fine on the English version.
Cheers!
Oh, and I'm still happy with my blanca

RE: I´ve updated my webpage (in reply to Anders Eliasson

Hi thanks all.

You´re right about the peghead. Its one of my most important products. I should have a peghead without soundport there.... One day

There were links to videos, but not the funky direct youtube ones that I have now. My webeditor(s) really hated that part and I really hated my webeditors.

I have finished updating, and I´ve asked people to test. I´m aware of the fotos link that doesnt work on the trabajos page... Spanish speaker will have to live with that for now. I´m not a big fan of doing webpages, but its an enourmous advantage to do it myself.

The bisggest improvement is that I´ve finished the Spanish part... Its been half finished since 2007......

Congrats Anders again. I think the website is better overall.

In terms of updating the webpage, to me the most important thing is the description of materials, the pictures, the videos and the fact that you clearly show the price. I can't believe how many builders do not put the price on their website.

However, as everyone knows, I am a BIG fan of your guitars! and its nice to see your site updated.

I also have to say that i can not live without my blanca.... her flamenco sound, her nice smell... her beauty......
and the same thing will be for the new negra you are building for me!.....

tanks Anders to be the great maestro and the very special nice person you are!

Looks good, Anders!

I really like the "finished" soundports rather than just a plain hole.

That negra looks stunning!

And a very reasonable price IMO.

Best of luck and every success with your building!

cheers,

Ron

Hi Anders,

looks good. I noticed a couple of things on your music page:

- the third video seems to be offset to the left (I use a Mac with a Safari browser)
- the text should say "...I actually play the guitars that I make" and not "...I actually play the guitars that I play"

Regards, Mohan.

RE: I´ve updated my webpage (in reply to Anders Eliasson

Hi Anders,
Your guitars speek for themselves, personally I think your website does not.
Here's some constructive critisism:



* When you watch the website on widescreen the text scales along with it, outside the logo margins, also the tablecells with photographs scale along so you see these nasty borders
* On the Flamenco part, the browser tab mentions: Sausage Software HotDog PageWiz
* I would choose 1 font type, and keep it centered or alligned, not both mixed together

There are ofcourse other things you can do, like a gallery, or fixed size...etc. but thats out of the scope for now.

If I can help you with something, just drop a note!

cheers

RE: I´ve updated my webpage (in reply to Anders Eliasson

Thanks Kozz. I´m pretty much aware of what you say..... And I accept that things are the way they are. I´m a total 100% amateur using cheap or free wysiwyg software...
Its good enough for me. I´m in business and thats what its all about for me. I want to be judged for my guitars and not for my webpage.
I made the update because the "old" one was full of errors. This one has less and it has a full Spanish section.... And to be able to update my page when I want to is a huge advantage.

Actually I´m this kind of mr. Natural guy. I can remember life before computers and cell phones and I think we had a better life. I use Internet, mail, cell phones, whatever because life is like that nowadays and in order to survive, I have to follow what there is. BUT if I one day can survive living out in the bush without all that freaky electronic stuff.....Just a boat, vegetables and of course some nice friends and some sweet dogs and other animals. Then me muy happy.

LOL!
Me too like the bush and electricity free

I can understand where you come from. All the web / social media can be overwhelming.
Though it can increase the business/sales quite easily.
