    It's great. I'm sure when bigcommerce made their classic theme, they were very proud.

    It is not really a classic BC theme.... I do sense sarcasm, though. If you have nothing to say, then say nothing...

    Actually, that's a completely valid criticism and one that I'm going to allow as a mod. He's implying, quite rightly, that it's not really your work as such. It started as someone else's.

    CLASSIC <-- this is the theme Ron's talking about.

    Now, if you tell us what you did with the theme and how you customized it (not just talking about changing the logo, either), then okay...but as of right now Ron's got a pretty fair point. At the very least, it's not wholly original and at some point someone else (i.e. a customer) may recognize the template.

    You've got quite the markup on the "accessories" as well.

    Cheap Valentines Day Vases and Containers like this Gathering Vase in Red - Wholesale Flowers

    hani - SunnyGiftBaskets.com <-- the $12 vase.

    By the way, either you need to get the proper pictures from your supplier (meaning the ones without the watermark) or take your own shots. It looks like you're using these pics without permission...I can't see any wholesale supplier allowing retailers to take watermarked images and just use them. There's a reason the watermark is on the image to begin with. It at least looks like your product descriptions are original, so that's a plus.

    Your FAQ is empty. Your about us page at least has decent content, though.

    Wondering about the idea of shipping perishable items in the mail. This could lead to some serious problems, particularly if you ship across borders or to government locations...I know for a fact that shipping floral-related items to a government location can lead to them being sprayed and damaged by government agents (happened to the customer of a former client of mine). I'm not sure what terrorist threats come in flowers, but they watch for that.

    Oh, I have plenty to say. I was just leaving some meat for the other sharks...

    I suppose by "not really a classic BC theme" you probably mean "added a sidebar and changed a couple colors".

    Since I'm often the lead shark and I'm not terribly hungry tonight, I've said my piece for now, Ron...if you've got more to say, open up.

    Okay...now I'm really confused. This doesn't look much different than the site that didn't look much different than the template, and looks more "under construction" than the first site you wanted us to look at. Why are we looking at this?

    Take a look at the HTML. It's the same folder structure as the other one...same as the Classic theme. He's just trying to find his nose by going around his *** because he got caught.
