autodata WordPress Support

Project Overview

Established in 1986 Autodata has over 30 years of experience providing the UK and global enterprises with the best I.T products and services.

We first hooked up with Sam and her marketing team from Autodata in 2019. When we were approached to support them with their WordPress site, which was running a custom theme. In addition to this, Autodata required some bespoke customisations, as well as new features implemented and maintenance updating legacy scripts and depreciated code.

We've collaborated with Autodata on various projects to develop new accessibility features, responsive navigation menus and improved user experience, and have continued to provide ongoing WordPress support for Autodata, for the last few years.

Updating the website

The Autodata website was powered by WordPress, and had already been built before we met. They had a custom theme that had become outdated and depreciated functions meant some parts of the theme no longer worked as expected.

Our WordPress developers performed a technical audit of the WordPress theme which allowed us to identify the problems and fix them so that Autodata could continue using the website without the need for a full rebuild.

Responsive navigation

One of the problems with the existing theme was the lack of support for accessible navigation between parent and child service pages. The existing theme had been designed around a 1-2 level hierarchy structure and this now needed to be expanded to support level 3 content within the site navigation dropdown.

We created a completely bespoke navigation menu for mobile devices that allows users to navigate all service levels and easily return back to the first level using back buttons and arrows within the menu interface.

Responsive WordPress Navigation Menu

The new responsive navigation menu is completely dynamic and works with WP Menu drag/drop functionality within the CMS. The Autodata team can easily add new pages and re-order, giving them full control over the website menu and content.

Desktop navigation

As part of the same task, we rebuilt the desktop navigation menu to support tier 3 level content as well. The desktop menu has improved accessibility with arrows using subtle animations that indicate to the user which item has been selected from the dropdown.

WordPress support

The Autodata team already had experience with WordPress and using the CMS for day to day activities such as updating pages and blog content. However, to improve efficiency they required a specialist WordPress support provider for more complex tasks.

Autodata is now one of many clients who rely on Digital Mad to provide professional, and reliable WordPress training and support.
