omg... what's up with WalMart? They really ought to do more consumer testing before they release a product the next round... and they'd better get this video store issue done up and well!

Well - to make matters worse - I tried the service yesterday and after waiting some 15 - 20 minutes after having paid (this is also announced after you have paid in all fairness) - the video started downloading. After completing the download - it refuses to play - in the "Media Usage Rights Acquisition" window the Wallmart video homepage is loading and nothing else happens. I could not find any link to complain..!

That's true too John - I think default blog templates do help, especially for the less tech savvy.

Definitely, the simpler the code, the faster it takes for spiders to read and understand - in fact, I would say that would be one of the factors why "Google loves blogs" - blogs have a very plain site HTML structure most of the time.

If it works after a "hard refresh" the culprit is usually the CSS file. So simplicity in website design is also important. :)
