How I Work
For website development I use WordPress. Although I have been developing websites from scratch since the early 2000’s, nowadays there isn’t the budget or the time (and I love to concentrate on my creativity) to do this. Clients like to add their own pages, blog, add products to their shop and change things around as they need without having to contact their web developer.
This is where the CMS (Content Management System) comes in. WordPress has developed into a fantastic CMS over the years with loads of themes, plugins and functionality being constantly developed for it. It is powerful and easy enough to use. I started using WordPress in 2010 after using other Content Management Systems and I was blown away with what it could do. At that time I developed my own themes, but now with the advance of drag and drop interfaces – I am now going to concentrate on building a fantastic UI (User Interface). Of course if anything goes wrong – I know where to look, how to fix it and get it running again as I have the experience.
I have a handful of themes and plugins I like to use that I know don’t conflict with each other and are easy for you, my client, to use. Because YOU want to concentrate on what’s important, not fixing something that breaks all the time.
