JKL Pricing Tables

Description

I’ve wanted to add SIMPLE Pricing Tables to my website for a while but many of the
plugins I tried out were either Freemium (requiring me to purchase the full version
in order to unlock the full functionality) or more complicated than I actually wanted.

THIS plugin is exceptionally simple.

  1. Step 1: Type the shortcode tags [jkl-pricing-table] ... [/jkl-pricing-table]
  2. Step 2: Add an <ol> ordered list for your Pricing Table
  3. Step 3: Tweak until it looks right

Requires WordPress 3.5 and PHP 5.

Special Features

How the Plugin works

  1. The shortcode expects an ordered list of ordered lists
  2. The primary ordered list is the names of your Pricing Options (Basic, Business, etc)
  3. The secondary ordered lists are the content within your Pricing Options
  4. Using jQuery, the plugin finds each element within the ordered lists and adds
    specific CSS classes to them based on their order (see below)
  5. The SECOND Pricing Option is always set to be “popped out” by default and when
    another table is not hovered over

If you want to help translate the plugin into your language, please have a look
at the .pot file which contains all definitions and may be used with a [gettext]
editor.

If you have created your own language pack, or have an update of an existing one,
you can send your [gettext .po or .mo file] to me so that I can bundle it in the
plugin.

Example of Usage

[jkl-pricing-table]
<ol>
  <li>Basic
    <ol>
      <li>$150</li>
      <li>Logo only</li>
      <li>Content 1</li>
      <li>Content 2</li>
      <li>Deliverables</li>
      <li><a href='#'>Select Now</a></li>
    </ol>
  </li>
  <li>Business
    <ol>
      <li>$250</li>
      <li>Logo + Business Cards</li>
      <li>Content 1</li>
      <li>Content 2</li>
      <li>Deliverables</li>
      <li><a href='#'>Select Now</a></li>
    </ol>
  </li>
</ol>
[/jkl-pricing-table]

Special CSS Classes and How to Style the Plugin

The plugin uses jQuery to dynamically add the following CSS classes to the ordered
list elements. Use these classes in your Custom CSS if you want to change things.

  1. .pricing-table = Each first level ordered list item (<ol><li>)
  2. .price = The FIRST second level list item (<ol><li><ol><li>)
  3. .description = The SECOND second level list item
  4. List items after this have no special styling until the end
  5. .deliverables = The SECOND-TO-LAST second level list item
  6. .cta-button (Call To Action button) = The LAST second level list item (it should be an <a> link)
  7. .button = The <a> link in the .cta-button list item

When applying custom CSS to change the design of your plugin, please reference these
classes as .pricing-table .class

Example of CSS Classes after jQuery assigns them

[jkl-pricing-table]
<ol>
  <li class="pricing-table">Basic
    <ol>
      <li class="price">$150</li>
      <li class="description">Logo only</li>
      <li>Content 1</li>
      <li>Content 2</li>
      <li class="deliverables">Deliverables</li>
      <li class="cta-button"><a class="button" href='#'>Select Now</a></li>
    </ol>
  </li>
  <li class="pricing-table">Business
    <ol>
      <li class="price">$250</li>
      <li class="description">Logo + Business Cards</li>
      <li>Content 1</li>
      <li>Content 2</li>
      <li class="deliverables">Deliverables</li>
      <li class="cta-button"><a class="button" href='#'>Select Now</a></li>
    </ol>
  </li>
</ol>

FAQ

Tips

As a general rule, it is always best to keep your WordPress installation and all
Themes and Plugins fully updated in order to avoid problems with this or any other
Themes or Plugins. I regularly update my site and test my Plugins and Themes with
the latest version of WordPress.

How can I change the style of the plugin to match my website?

Each element contains its own unique CSS identifier under .pricing-tables, allowing
you to hook into those in your own Custom CSS stylesheet.

How can I add more tables?

Simply add another <ol> item.

Why aren’t the table items the same size?

Try to keep the content of each of your <li> elements to approximately the same
length in order to keep the size of the pricing tables consistent. i.e. if one of
your <li> elements is 2 lines long, try to make EVERY table at the same <li>
element also be 2 lines long. (See some examples at my documentation site – upcoming).
