Freelance Web Developer
Emily Fruit Crisps are an “exciting new range of snacks that have all the goodness of fruit with the crunch of a crisp.”
The team behind the new product approached me when they wanted some extra features added to their already designed website.
Below are the additions that I made to the site:
- Google Maps integration with “Where To Buy” location markers.
- Fix Internet Explorer issues
- Add Mailchimp integration
Google Maps integration
The team wanted a way of displaying where you could go to buy their products.
I created a bespoke custom plugin for their WordPress site that includes scaleable information for each location.
At the moment they have the address, and phone number. But theoretically they could have anything – it’s just a small tweak to the template.
I then installed a 3rd party plugin which allowed us to import 80 locations saved in a CSV file (saving us from having to manually create each one!)
Finally I added once touch as an idea of my own, which was to use the built in HTML5 geo location service so that the map automatically centres on your current location. This way you can imediately see how many shops there are in your locality.
Of course you can also search using a Postcode or Town just like you would on Google Maps!
