Literature and Tools XML

  • HTML
  • XML

This was a self initiated project to deal with the shortcomings of the old literature and tools page which was updated manually. This was a pain because there are140 or so unique items and some appear under several sections. For various reasons a database couldn't be used (see my PHP version of this) so I developed a system that used XML to catalogue the various items uniquely. The preview download links feature _gaq.push to enable accurate and real-time analytics on what is being downloaded. Later functionality was added to switch between two XML source files, one for personal and one for business protection items. Additionally there is a filter for customer and adviser facing items and livesearch. The lower item in the page displays in-page relevant literature where the HTML only requires a div with a relevant ID which enables the jQuery to build all the necessary html with the minimum of fuss required to update it.
