Website Update

UPDATE: Total redo. Had to make initial page faster. Using JSON (and some tricks), rendering is now 30x faster - typical load time should be less than a one second. Also fixed some bugs and added some enhancements. Even works in IE 9-11. Good Lord!

Had to update php up from version 5.2 (old as hell) to at least 5.6, but is now compatible up to 7.2. Also, made more mobile friendly. Cut a lot of fat and a lot of bad coding. Overall, much more solid and secure. COOL!

It's definitely more streamlined, good work. However, I will say, it seems a bit more difficult to navigate without the right frame navigation. I found myself looking for issues organized by volume, etc.; could be missing something?

Now that I take a second look, the dropdown for "storefront" in the middle of the page is nice. However, the text in the dropdown is white unless highlighted, not sure if that is intentional.

The sidebar wasn't mobile friendly thus the dropdown. I made it white on black thinking that users would notice it better. Apparently not!

Ha! So - yes, I actually did notice the dropdown easier with the black background on white text (even if it took me a minute to get used to the new layout). It's when I click the dropdown itself on Chrome, using a desktop/laptop, that one doesn't see the text until hovering over it.

I just checked it out on mobile (Android 8.1) and the menu text is visible when selecting it from the site.

Not as pretty but worked in Windows 7 IE 10 and 11, Chrome and Firefox. Clear your browser cache first too.
