As I’ve mentioned in the past, we have developed a special preview box for links that point to wines or other products on our list, such as this:
These links have the image, the title, description and, hopefully usefully, the price.
However, not all the wines we are tasting and talking about will always be currently available. In some cases we will buy wines to keep for years, and when we get around to sharing them, they will no longer be in stock so there will be no price information.
As a member, you will have access to the wine’s information in your “My Wines” list so there is still the opportunity to share the link here. The question I have is this:
How should we display links to out-of-stock wines in the forum?
- does it matter to you whether they are in stock or not?
- would you want these to look different - such as a background colour?
- instead of showing “Price £0.00”, would it be better to say something like “This wine or vintage is no longer available”? Is there better wording for this?
- in the ideal world, where would these links take you? To the historic wine information, the latest vintage of the same wine, or to related products?
Here is a mock-up of the design we are looking at, but I thought I would ask the opinion of those who will be using these links most - you!
