StaffingNation Dynamic Pricing Table

October 2019 - December 2019
Goals
  • Create a WP Admin area that was easily editable by the client
  • Make a fairly large table viewable on mobile, accounting for future changes

Project Overview

StaffingNation needed a large table that shows pricing for 4 different tiers. My job was to take their design and make a functional toggleable table in their WordPress theme. The table needed to represent the same options on mobile, which proved to be more of a challenge than desktop.

Process

The process starts with deciding how to take the data from the CMS. At that point, I started off every WordPress project with advanced custom fields. This worked perfectly because the client could easily add/remove rows without the process being convoluted like other themes make it. Once I had the ACF structure and test data in, I built out the design then the JavaScript functionalities. From there, it was just about testing the page and making sure the CMS data was being displayed correctly.

After all the above testing was finished, the last challenge was to adapt the table to a mobile design. We ended up keeping the same layout but changing the headers to be vertical. This proved to be a happy medium and made presenting a large amount of data on a small screen doable.

Technologies Used

WordPress and advanced custom fields were used to collect and display CMS data. CSS for styling and good old JavaScript for functionality.

Defining Reusable Column Extends with SCSS

Quick Note: The atSmall type mixins are just basic media queries. Since these kinds of layouts are common, they also need to be overwritable if I want to change the spacing. Generally, the ‘default’ spacing is defined in the extend/mixins. Example Use Cases To get the layout working, you only need a container class and […]
