DEVELOPER NOTES:

4/23/19:   We have received documentation from Shift with the pages that are required for Lexus sites, and I have added those pages to the site.  Many of them don't have content supplied from Lexus yet, but the pages are in the site, and content will be added when we get it.

 

4-29-2019:  Kickoff call requests -

Add a "Service appt" button at the top of the homepage (IT HAS BEEN ADDED)

Put a text us link up in the header (THERE IS A "TEXT US" LINK IN THE CONTACT DROPDOWN THAT WILL SEND A TEXT TO THE SALES NUMBER.  IF THEY HAVE A SEPARATE NUMBER FOR TEXTING ONLY, I CAN THROW THAT IN THERE)

Just show MSRP on prices (IT NOW SHOWS JUST MSRP PRICES FOR THE NEW CARS, AND FOR THE USED, IT SHOWS THE "RETAIL PRICE", SAME AS ON THE CURRENT SITE)

Make a landing page with the lease return center (A LANDING PAGE HAS BEEN CREATED SIMILAR TO THE ONE ON THE CURRENT SITE.)

Bring in the service specials (I WILL SEE WHAT SPECIALS ARE ON THE SITE IN THE BEGINNING OF MAY AND CARRY THEM OVER THEN)

 

5-16-2019:
 
Add address to header
Phone Numbers
- Phone numbers for all profit centers (local tracking recommended)
- Service & Parts are noted at the bottom of the page
 
Can Search widget background be changed to grey? (Black blends too much with existing background image)
 
- Should be able to code out vertical scroll bar
 
- Should be able to code out vertical scroll bar
- Getting Double scroll bars (e.g. - GS open multiple offers)
 
- Should be able to code out vertical scroll bar
 
(THIS IS A VERY FREQUENT REQUEST TO THE PROGRAMMERS… HOPEFULLY SOMETHING WILL BE DONE SOON ABOUT IT.  FOR NOW I’LL CODE THEM OUT.)
 
About Us > Contact Us
-          Is this supposed to be Directions page?
o   If so – recommend renaming “Hours & Directions” and then updating footer links
o   If not – need an Hours & Directions Navigation link
 
(IT HAS BEEN CHANGED)
 
Finance
-          Recommend adding payment calculator link
(UNFORTUNATELY THAT IS NO LONGER A FEATURE AVAILABLE IN ENGINE 6)
 
- Price display inconsistent (if you scroll down sample, some left justified, some right)
 
 
css for <h1> tags - default smaller font? Results in fewer header "2 line wraps"
 
(I MADE THE DEFAULT H1 TEXT SMALLER SO LESS WORD WRAPPING HAPPENS)
 
MEET THE LEXUS FAMILY (home page)
- Hybrid & Electric - seems to include non H&E
(I’LL BRING THAT UP TO THE PROGRAMMING TEAM.  I’M NOTICING THAT AS WELL)
 
Model Sliders - recommend "Inventory" rather than "Explore"
 
What Our Customers Say (home page)
- Several get cut off. #3 seems to be REALLY negative.  (I’M GUESSING YOU’RE REFERRING TO THE ONE THAT SAID THE CAR BUYING EXPERIENCE WAS A NIGHTMARE UNTIL THEY VISITED THE DEALERSHIP.  I MARKED THAT ONE AS INACTIVE AND IT WON’T SHOW UP ON THE SITE)
- Allot space to allow for longer reviews (I GAVE THE REVIEWS MODULE A 1000 CHARACTER LIMIT BEFORE IT SHOWS THE “MORE” LINK, SO ALMOST ALL OF THE REVIEWS WILL SHOW IN THEIR ENTIRETY ON THE SITE NOW)
 
Footer links (home page)
- Body Style links - Only Hybrid working, Sedans/Coupes/SUVs return 0 results
- Certified returns 16 results (L/Certified menu link returns 32 results)
- Hours & Directions / Get Directions links return 404 error
(THOSE ISSUES HAVE BEEN TAKEN CARE OF)
 
- What is this?
 
No Content:
RESEARCH
 
SERVICE
 
PRE-OWNED > FEATURES
 
(THESE ARE ALL PAGES CREATED FOR THE SITE, AND WHEN LEXUS SUPPLIES US WITH THE CONTENT FOR THEM, IT WILL BE PLACED INTO THE PAGES)
 
 
- Is there a Manager's Specials page? (see content – beginning of 2nd sentence)
(YES THERE IS.  IT WAS WORDED AS “SPECIAL OFFERS” ON THE TEMPLATE.  I CHANGED THE NAME TO “MANAGER’S SPECIALS”)
 
-          Add customer phone# field (THAT FIELD HAS BEEN ADDED)
-           
-          Add field to capture vehicle info. Stock#? (THIS IS AN XTIME FORM AND WE ARE UNABLE TO CHANGE ANYTHING ON THAT)
 
SRPs
-          Move Color (left side filters) below Trim  Level / Above Interior Color (IT HAS BEEN MOVED)
VDPs
-          Recommend removing Date In Stock field (IT HAS BEEN REMOVED)
-          Add Call to Actions (Get E-Price / Get More Information / Schedule Test Drive / Value Your Trade / Get Pre-Approved) (THEY HAVE BEEN CREATED)
-          Descriptions have multiple dysfunctional links. (See sample screenshot below) (THOSE ARE FOUND IN THE COMMENTS FIELD IN YOUR INVENTORY FEED.  THEY WILL HAVE TO BE CHANGED ON THAT END)
(HOWEVER, IF THOSE ARE THE SAME LINKS IN EVERY DESCRIPTION, I CAN PLACE A REDIRECT IN THERE TO GUIDE THEM TO THE PROPER PLACES WHEN THE SITE GOES LIVE)
 

PAGES WITH NO CONTENT NOW HAVE CONTENT IN THEM FROM LEXUS
