One of the first tasks on the list after the first conversion was language translation. Since WIWA is a multinational company they needed a way for visitors to easily translate the English version of the site into their own language. HTML to WordPress ArchiveA visit to Wayback Machine shows that moving the site from HTML to WordPress was the right move. I can t really take credit here as it was a simple plugin and one they use to this day . Having ready-made plugins available on a whim to enhance a website s functionality is one of the reasons I chose WordPress and I think the translation plugin is a good illustration in practice. There were other challenges along the way some from the start and others years later.
I ll discuss the needs and solutions of some of the most notable features that have transformed this once static HTML site into a powerful product and support portal for WIWA mobile number list distributors in North America. Digital product catalog WooCommerce was a key feature used to turn static product pages into a full digital catalog. While they may start selling their products from a catalog they currently prefer to simply showcase products . Creating a digital catalog was quite easy. If we just omit the price there s nothing to add to the cart so no button is created for that feature.
Still there are other features of WooCommerce available such as product search filters categories tags attributes and just about anything you would normally need for an online store . There s just no real sales. This method is also somewhat future-proof because when they decide to start selling everything is already there except the price and a few shipping details. HTML to WordPress catalogDialing into the catalog was an important part of moving the site from HTML to WordPress. Search is an important feature for the WIWA USA website. A parts finder for technical support was implemented early on followed by a distributor map with finder functionality.
