CG Vision’s Pathway Marketing Flex Floor Plan, Community Planner, and Designer are all stand-alone web applications that can be integrated into your existing website in a few ways.

External Link

The easiest way to add Pathway Marketing to your web site is to have it open in a new tab or window. Simply add target=”_blank” inside your link.

 <a href="http://www.yoursite.com/ehome/flexfp.html?hid=59&cid=11" target="_blank">
    View the eHome Designer
</a> 

Lightbox

A lightbox view of Pathway Marketing works nicely and keeps the user from leaving the current page.

If your site’s theme or included javascript can support displaying an external web page in a lightbox, then refer to the documentation on how to do so. If not, then we recommend prettyPhoto.

prettyPhoto is a jQuery lightbox clone. Not only does it support images, it also support for videos, flash, YouTube, iframes and ajax. It’s a full blown media lightbox. It is very easy to setup, yet very flexible if you want to customize it a bit. Plus the script is compatible in every major browser, even IE6.”

 <a rel="prettyPhoto[iframes]" href="http://www.yoursite.com/ehome/flexfp.html?hid=59&cid=11&iframe=true&width=85%&height=85%">
    View the eHome Designer
</a> 

iframe

To embed any of Pathway Marketing’s apps into your website, we suggest the use of an iframe.  It will fit seemlessly into your site and will even resize if your web site is responsive. Resize and refresh this page to see how it fits in this responsive site.

This technique can be used with the Flex Floor Planner, the Community Planner, and the Designer.

 <iframe height="800" style="width:100%;" seamless src="http://www.yoursite.com/ehome/community.html?cid=2"></iframe> 
Result:

 <iframe height="800" style="width:100%;" seamless src="http://www.yoursite.com/ehome/flexfp.html?hid=1&cid=1"></iframe> 
Result:

hid and cid

Within each link, you’ll notice that there are two query strings- hid and cid. The hid query string refers to the House ID that is within Pipeline and the cid query string refers to the Community ID.

The hid will show the appropriate house, and by adding the cid, it will limit the ‘View Other Homes’ tab to only show those houses in the same community. You may leave off the cid, and it will show every house that has an ehome flex floor plan or designer in the system.

WordPress Plugin

We have created a plugin that is in Beta that may be able to be utilized on a home builder’s web site that is powered by WordPress. In fact, this site’s communities, houses, and eHome apps are served up using this plugin.  If you would like more information on how it works and if it would fit your needs, contact us at Pipeline.Support@cgvisions.com
