The home page offers you three main functions :
" Identification "
allows you to login and avoid entering your data (name, address, email) at each order.
Later, this option will allow us to offer you new releases according to your taste, i.e.
your previous purchases.
" Search by Artist " allows you to have access to a band /
artists complete discography (or at least the part of the discography that appears
on our catalogue).
The most efficient way is to type in the most significant part of the artists
name : for instance, to search for Jean-Pascal BOFFOs discography, (labelled
Jean-Pascal BOFFO, with a hyphen between Jean and Pascal), the best way is to type in
" BOFFO ". You will then avoid any typography-linked problem. You will
also find PENDRAGON by typing in " PEND ".
This search will give you all the records that exist on our catalogue for this
particular artist, with each records title, format, timing, release date and price.
A shopping cart besides a title means that it is available : you can order it.
A red-crossed shopping cart means that the title is unavailable.
The green frame at the left of the screen allows you a Search by musical
style : on a simple click on a specific style (eg. Progressive
Rock or Blues), you will get the alpabetical list of all the artists belonging to this
style, along with their nationality. If you click on a particular artist, you will get his
discography, as in " Search by Artist ".
We wish to precise that our Progressive Rock list, which is our special field, includes
almost 2000 artists. According to your Internet connexion, you will notice a certain time
before it completely appears on your screen
After this search by artist, the following screen gives you the possibility to click on
a record to have further information : a text presenting the artist, the record cover
and a MP3 musical sample. You will notice that from time to time one of the data is
missing. Our online store has just opened and the digitalization of 5000 covers and as
many musical samples is a long-term job.
You have the possibility, if you wish, to contribute to the extension of this database
by providing us any missing record cover or musical sample. Send your covers in RVB
format, .gif extension, 72 dpi, 5x5 cm, and your MP3 musical samples (60 seconds maximum,
mono, 128K) to email@example.com. This
website works as an interactive databank where all the music fans can share the
information they have. That is why we deliberately leave the information corresponding to
depleted records. It is not only about selling, but also about making information
" Order " : once you have set your
choice on a record, all you have to do is to click on the shopping cart at the end of the
line (as long as it is not red-crossed). The " Shopping Cart
Content " then appears on your screen.
It allows you to visualise at any moment the details of your order as well as its cost,
including shipping costs. The basket at the right end of the line allows you to delete one
of the titles you have ordered at any moment. You can choose the delivery country thanks
to a menu. If you change the delivery country, click then on " Recalculate " to start a new calculation of your shipping costs.
On this screen, you can also choose your payment : if you choose to pay by cheque,
click on " By Cheque ", then on " Order ".
You may also choose to send money through PayPal. To do so, please click on " By Cheque ", then on " Order ". Once the order has been sent, all you need to do is to transfer the amount to firstname.lastname@example.org.
