Background

We have taken over work on this website.  It’s based on WooCommerce, but some of the functionality was custom built.  We are looking for expertise to understand some of the functionality and extend it.

First work is on the “Select a State” function.  Different regions have different house plans available. The company needs to add a new State “Arizona”.

The region setting function is most obvious in two use cases;

    • When a customer first visits the site a lightbox opens inviting them to choose and set a region.  The lightbox displays a map of some northern US States, then sub-regions.  The customer clicks to set to choose a region.
    • When looking at house plans a customer may change the region they are looking at (screenshot) and you can change it E.g. “Showing results for Burlington region (change)”

Requirements

1.We want this “Showing results for XXXXXXX region (change)” as a widget that we could place on any page, anywhere on the site;

 

2. We’d want to be able to set the region on any page by passing data in the URL.  E.g. https://www.staging7.lexarhomes.com/john-paul-collection/?region=123 Or https://www.staging7.lexarhomes.com/john-paul-collection/?region=Arizona

3. We want a “Set build area” link in the main menu with a map pin icon.  Clicking this fires the Select a State box.  The site https://www.adairhomes.com/ has this feature, we want the same as this.

4. We want the “Select A State” maps updated to include Arizona on the US State Map.  When you click on Arizona it will go through to an Arizona map showing the 3 counties of Maricopa, Pinal and Gila.  We will provide the new graphics early next week (May 10).
