    Hi, My web developer says that Purely Poultry is not Web 2.0 and I need to chose a new template at Template monster.

    I guess I can apply my current website colors to the new template or get rid of them. I like my colors, but am looking for your input here.

    I like these 5 templates

    1. http://osc2.template-help.com/zencart_14229/index.php

    2
    . http://osc2.template-help.com/zencart_14771/index.php I don't like that this template has a huge header photo but, I like it otherwise.

    I like 5 the best. The rest all look to "citified" for a poultry website.

    4 and 5 were the choices of everyone that has commented so far on facebook too. Any other input?

    1 Or 4

    1 has the pull to it. But s you said you current colour scheme can be used with it, some what easily seeing as the template now in use use is using ID's.

    ETA pushed the worng # key

    I liked #4 because it seems less busy to me...It would be easier to tell if you had your stuff actually IN the template. It is kind of hard to visualize...but maybe that's just me! Terri O

    #1; Not too busy, I like the toned down colors (easier on the eye). Only change I would make would be to place the search button up in the main header.

    #2- Not enough information on home page and pic takes up too much room
    #3- OK, but not as easy to follow as #1
    #4- Almost too busy with pictures...
    #5- OK, but again that giant photo takes up a lot of room


    Are you completely set on your colors of navy blue and orange with the bright yellow????

    I am not completely set on my colors but I do really like them. I think that I have figured out that we will have one of those photo boxes that auto-scroll through different photos to intreague people. I am so thankful for your help with this. I am not a colors, or a "pretty" person. I know what a beautiful chicken is and I know that my wife and son are beautiful and thats as far as my idea of beautiful goes so I need help with things like this.
