- Where is the old site?
One of two common queries is ‘Where is the old site?’ and the answer is that it is hidden as it is broken.
We will hopefully extract the old photos at some time, but we are focused on getting new listings into the new site.
The other common question relates to the old site and was an item sold or still available? For many months we had issues with trying to update the old the site to flag sold items.
In the end it is easier for us to drop the old site (not working in any case) and start with a fresh look at our stock.
All the current items listed as 1 in stock, is accurate and available right now for purchase. If it is sold it is out of stock and hidden from view automatically. We might configure the system to allow for an archive of sold items, but not yet.
Stay home and Stay safe!
