The web toolkit
The web toolkit is a set of web-based techniques by which Active Club Solutions’ winery clients may offer their customers a number of online features:
member choice clubs (“allocations”) and futures
user account management
The HTML returned from the catalog script also determines the layout and format of the text within the embedded iframes, using a number of CSS classes. By modifying the associated style sheets, the designer can select alternate layouts and modify the iframes’ appearance as needed to match the existing host site. Furthermore, the specific text of most fields within the frames is defined in the customer’s database, where it can be modified as needed through the Active Club Manager application. (For example, to change “Login” to “Log in.”)
Figure 1 illustrates the relationships among the web toolkit components and the host site.
To implement the toolkit features, the designer copies the appropriate code template to a new or existing web site, modifies a small number of parameters to refer to the specific client’s database, and adds two sets of CSS styles to the host page.
Note: These instructions are for the use of web designers who wish to implement the Active Club web features on a winery client’s host site. Knowledge of HTML and cascading style sheets (CSS) is assumed.
