Re: [erpnext-user-forum] Digest for erpnext-user-forum@googlegroups.com - 2 Messages in 1 Topic

Dear Rushabh,
I think the issue with the website is that most people already have it going and do not find a good enough reason to start all over again. I feel if all the options are available, at some point users will think of moving to erpnext website module since it would integrate with the billing. Personally for me, we too had a website going but since we are going through the relaunch phase we are starting all over again. Since the option is available from erpnext my new website is going to be from within the erp. As for the domain I thought Umair had told me there is a way out as users would get redirected to the website from erp once they type our domain name. Good to know Anand has started work on the same. Look forward to the updates.

Regards,
Mehul.

  Hi Rushabh,<br>

One of the main reasons to selct Erpnext 14 month ago was the promise
that a website would be integrated in a few month. I have been seeing
lots of improvements, and have been patient on the web-shop.

Indeed, I agree with one of the reactions that several of us have
already an webite, and there is an abundance of free and easy "site
builders" with a wide choice of standard templates and extentions such
as a webshop.
So the only reason to use Erpnext to build a website is the full
integration between a POS, adminstration, and webshop, and for the
time being, not the easy one can build a website.

Also if you want people to use the Erpnext webshop, somewhat more
documentation would help, it is now still a develop by trial exercise.

You would like that users of Erpnext use xxxx.erpnext.com as their
primary site. I do not even know how to do that. We own the domain
www.dogsloveit.nl and guess that I have to do a redirect to
dogsloveit.erpnext.com, or something like that.

BUT: Our website attracts visitors and using relevant search terms has
a high ranking in Google. Also we have a functional and operational
webshop running on this domain. I am not convinced that our website
will by found by Google. We had 19 vistors on dogsloveit.erpnext.com
over the last month, and 90% are my own visits. Also if I google
Laxsun or Avana Sarasota is do find their Erpnext sites.


So, logically, I am somewhat hesitant to move and would prefer a
gradual move, by linking our existing site to erpnext. However, at
this moment there is no reason to do so, since the website is not
functional. Checken & Egg.

Anyway, I do hope that you, and your team, will find enough energy and
resources to implement the webshop, and as an other user noted, that
will motivate people.

Thanks for the feedback - yes its chicken and egg. Once you redirect your
new domain to the website it may take some time for search engines to
reindex. But that is a decision you have to take.

It takes some effort to get your website functional - i.e. update your item
images and do the classification but after that its much easier to
maintain. Seeing the current websites of more than 90% of our users, it
seems like an obvious choice for me, maybe I am wrong.

Either ways I am not selling and I have not said that we are abandoning web
shop - I am surprised to see the reaction here as if we are committing some
kind of harakiri. Anand has already started work on the webshop.

Stay tuned for updates.

best,
Rushabh
