My vote goes for 50/50

I have an override for this so it will not affect my site. 

In fact 60/40 did not affect my site either.

But I go for 50/50 as CAS is so passionate about it!

Wow Maxim!  Period!   So I guess that's the final word!  So much for the poll we were doing to see what people preferred.  Good luck in making VM a better product with an attitude like that!  Now you see why people give up trying to help.

Thanks Hutson!  I really appreciate your understanding and support.  It was nice to finally have someone understand the situation.  Even if I get out voted, at least now I know I'm not the only one with common sense in the room.  It means a lot!     

Take care,
Chuck

Why not provide for us any case where change to 60/40 made design of product page ill? Cases for your web shops or for web shops of 'numerous' helpless VM beginners?

You came here without any petition, without such cases as far as I know.

No facts. Nothing discuss really.

Your offer of assistance is well met.

I have no axe to grind here but, CAS has attempted to state his case. Polling people after a change has been delivered in a release by someone not in the VM team, is somewhat difficult from what I can see!

Try to get a significant section of the VM visitors to answer a poll on a piece of functionality that they may not be using, and see how much weight your responses will have (statistically speaking!)

You can see by the vast number responding to this thread that CAS is on a hiding to nothing!

CAS is clearly unhappy with the change.  I am not saying that he is wright to be unhappy, nor am I saying that the change should not have taken place however, CAS appears to have tried to provide a case for the 60/40. He along with others, including milbo, worked on this to get a display functioning.

At that time a 60/40 split was utilised and clearly this suited the need.  How was anyone to know that this was to be changed other than the VM team?

So it came as a suprise to CAS when the split changed to 60/40.

If CAS reads this, maybe Max's help is enough?

Maxim,

Are you asking if I had a problem with the change from 50/50 to 60/40 split?  The answer is Yes, just read all my posts in this topic asking for help.  Here is one of my sites that I had to override the split back to 50/50 in order for it to work properly:  https://www.hairextensionsfair.com/shop/hair-extensions/bella-clip-in-20-in-6-5oz-detail

As far as others having this same problem, just read the posts in this topic for the folks asking for help.  I even got messages directly asking me for help after the change in the split since all the helpful tips in this post no longer work without doing an override.  I know doing an override is no big deal, but not everyone understand how to do this, and was the change worth the impact to these folks. 

So now you can see there are real folks like me who were impacted.  That's why I respectfully asked if it could be put back to 50/50 to help everyone with custom field images that are now having an issue.  We both know the people who don't use custom field images, could care less about this issue.   My request is only for those folks using custom field images.   

Good luck in whatever you decide. 

Regards,
Chuck

It's not simple to get in past without special machine. Let's work in present to make future better.

Still I can't see real problem with 60/40

You haven't problem with this web page, right?

Well, if you would switch to 60/40 and would meet some issues I'll be happy to assist you in resolving.
I already made a challenge about that.

Do you call?

Maxum,

The website is fine now since I did an override to put the split back to 50/50.   But it came as a surprise when I upgraded VM to the latest version and my products no longer displayed properly after working perfectly since Nov 2011.  I had to figure out that the page split had changed.  But just because I was able to get it to work properly, there are people still asking for help in this topic.   I just think whoever made the change from 50/50 to 60/40 didn't take into account just how difficult it is for non-expert folks like me to get custom field images to display properly.  Anyone who has dealt with custom field images knows exactly what I am talking about.  If it wasn't for Banquet Pro's help, I would have never gotten it to display properly back in Nov 2011.  Since I struggled for so long to get it to finally display properly, that's why I am so passionate about this topic, and why I don't want others to suffer the way I did.  I have a great idea, why not implement a WYSIWYG editor to manage customer field images?  Now that would be very helpful! 

Regards,
Chuck
