Whilst working at Eclipse Legal Systems, I was tasked to create a Conveyancing Calculator which could be installed on client’s websites; in order for their visitors to request a conveyancing quote, and for the data generated by the quote could be inserted into Eclipse’s Proclaim Case Management software.
As most clients would be running WordPress, I felt the best decision would be to be develop a WordPress plugin so the calculator could be easily integrated into a client’s current website.
I used WordPress’ plugin development best practices, splitting code into separate files, custom function and database table names, etc.
Since October 2017, this plugin has undergone a few major changes such as adding new Fee and Value options, updates to Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) and the recent Welsh Land Tax Transaction Residential (LTT) fees.
The plugin has been tested across multiple versions of WordPress from 4.6.1 up-to the current (at time of writing, Feb 2019) version of 5.0.3.
A demo is available here.
