As of July 6th, 2018 our website has an all-new look and feel, so we’ve put together an article to help guide you through the new site structure. Please refer back to this if you’re ever lost, and if you’ve still got questions, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll do our best to assist you!
Website Home Page
The first thing you might notice is an updated and simplified home page. The new full-page slider will include noteworthy articles, product releases, and other news we feel is useful to you. Below this you’ll find image cards – These are quick and easy waypoints for popular sections on the website, with descriptions about their corresponding page. These cards slide easily on mobile or desktop, allowing you to navigate quickly and easily with no fuss regardless of your device.
There are no changes to the online catalog viewer. However, the landing page for catalogs itself has been simplified so that all catalogs are easily viewable above the fold.
We’ve introduced an all-new section–Media! Here you will find a library of product images taken by Westcan Manufacturing, dealers, upfitters and even end users! A fixed sidebar gives you easy access to the newest blog posts and includes a link to the blog itself. The red tab on the sidebar will take you to the blog page, where you can browse only the blog posts if that is your viewing preference. As always, we welcome your feedback–If you have any images or suggestions for article topics you’d like to share, you may submit these to email@example.com.
The main feature on our products page is the filter! We’ve condensed our old filtering methods and made a much more intuitive sidebar that will help you navigate our wide selection of products. The categories menu has also been reduced from a full-height sidebar into a simple dropdown – thanks to the new megamenu for products, this category dropdown only has to be used for fine-tuning your search results.
The main shop page now better features products. The different image views can be seen right from the shop page instead of having to click into each individual product to get a closer look. There are more options to allow you to customize how many products you’re viewing on a page, and also in which order. The unique footer on this page also keeps you informed on your shipping program based on your geographic location.
We’ve updated everything down to the individual product pages! The first thing you might notice is a much larger, clearer look at the product imagery, as well as a mouseover zoom feature for details. Not only that, but products can now be ordered by quantity. Want nine swivel hooks? Just set the quantity to 9 and hit “add to cart”. No more having to add nine individual hooks and wait in between each! Products can now be easily shared with customers and friends via email or social media, too.
The dealers section of the website has been simplified the most, now split into only two parts – The dealer locator, and dealer registration form. We’ve added an additional filter that allows you to differentiate between dealer types. This will help prevent wasting a trip to a dealer which doesn’t carry your desired product! Your filtered results will return a text list of all relevant dealers within your range, including contact information. Not only that, but you can now get directions to your chosen dealer at the push of a button! Just press “directions” and google maps will load up your trip.
Rather than having a different form for each type of account registration, we’ve condensed them into one form! Simply choose your registration type using a radio checkbox that now lets you choose between “New Dealer Registration”, “Additional Account for Existing Dealer”, and “MSRP Account”. All forms now require a slimmed-down, universal set of information to apply.
The contact page has been simplified so that both the contact form and FAQ fall on the same screen.
Also, the footer has become a much more useful tool. Here you can find our store hours and contact information, social links and more. To simplify the main menu, the footer has taken on some links formerly found in the main menu. New footer features include recent blog posts and an instagram feed. This is a perfect way to stay up to date on our blog posts and see photos of Westcan product.
Footer Links: Warranty Policy, Register Warranty, and File A Claim
Our warranty section was a recent introduction. Here we’ve relegated this information to the footer. You may read through the whole warranty policy and even register your warranty if you’re an end user. This lets us better track your usage of our product and will even extend the warranty term on your item! Finally, “File A Claim” lets you easily submit a warranty claim online should your product ever fail.
