PAGE BUILDERS

Manage Content With WordPress Page Builders

The Right Page Builder for Your Business Needs

We understand the importance of having a visually appealing website that is easy to manage. That's why we use WordPress page builders to create websites that are simple to update and maintain. We use page builders such as Bricks Builder, Elementor, and Gutenberg integrated with Advanced Custom Fields for more control.

Each page builder has advantages and disadvantages. Elementor tends to be easier to use; however, it can be slower on larger sites. Gutenberg can be much faster but more complicated to set up and manage. Bricks Builder is quick and has advanced controls but is more challenging to use than Elementor.

WP DEVELOPMENT

Front End WordPress Developers

OUR CORE SKILLS AND DUTIES

A front-end WordPress developer is a professional who specialises in creating the user-facing aspects of a WordPress website. Their primary focus is on designing and developing the parts of the website that users interact with directly, such as the layout, navigation, forms, and visual elements.

Although there is overlap with the tasks of a backend WordPress developer, there are significant differences. Here are some key responsibilities and skills associated with a front-end WordPress developer:

HTML/CSS: The process of designing and developing websites involves the use of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. HTML is used to create and structure the content, CSS is used to style and visually enhance the website, and JavaScript is used to add interactive and dynamic elements to the website. Creating websites involves using these programming languages to ensure that the website is visually appealing, user-friendly, and functional.

WordPress Theme Development: Front-end WordPress developers specialise in creating custom WordPress themes or modifying existing themes using a combination of programming languages. Their goal is to create themes that are visually appealing, responsive, and user-friendly, while also meeting the unique needs of a website.

Responsive Design: Responsive design is a crucial aspect of creating a website that can be accessed by users on all types of devices, including desktops, laptops, tablets, and mobile phones. A responsive automatically adjusts its layout and content to fit the screen size of the device being used to view it. It ensures that the website is compatible with all types of browsers, thereby reaching a wider audience.

Cross-Browser Compatibility: Cross-browser testing is a crucial aspect of front-end WordPress development that ensures that websites work across various browsers, such as Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Edge. It helps provide a consistent user experience and ensures the website can reach a broad audience. Front-end developers test websites across different browsers to ensure compatibility and make any necessary adjustments.

Maintenance: A front-end WordPress developer maintains and updates existing websites by adding new features and functionality. In addition to adding new features and functionality, a front-end developer may also be responsible for troubleshooting and debugging issues on the website and optimising the site for performance and search engine rankings.

Problem-Solving Skills: An essential aspect of front-end development is problem-solving skills. Quickly identifying and troubleshooting issues related to code, performance, and other front-end development problems is crucial for delivering web projects. Front-end developers should have a strong understanding of the underlying technologies and use that knowledge to find solutions to complex problems.

API

WordPress REST API

Transforming Your Website Experience

Our WordPress API Integration services are designed to help you connect with various software solutions, including payment gateways and CRM systems. We understand the importance of having a robust and reliable system in place, which is why we ensure that our integration services are customised to meet your specific needs.

WordPress API Integration services can help streamline your business processes and improve productivity. Our WordPress developer discusses your requirements and suggests the best solution to integrate your website with external software systems. We ensure the integration is seamless without disrupting your website's performance.

CRM System

Manage Customer Interactions

Integrating a CRM with WordPress streamlines your marketing and sales efforts. In addition, a CRM will help you capture leads and nurture them from the first visit on your website.

Social Media

Improve Social Connections

An app designed using a Social Media API would have access to profile information and social connections, and would allow the user to post activities directly on users’ profiles/newsfeeds, where permitted.

Online Booking

Two-way calendar sync

Online booking systems can help you grow your business by allowing customers to make reservations, schedule classes, and book vacations directly from your WP website.

Accept Payments

Debit or credit card purchases

If you have a WooCommerce website and want to offer your customers online payment options, you’ll need to integrate a payment gateway like PayPal and Stripe.

HOSTING

WordPress Hosting Services

Your Key to a Reliable and Optimised Website

Our hosting packages provides a range of features essential for maintaining a secure and reliable website. Our hosting services include caching, which helps to speed up your website as well as a CDN (Content Delivery Network) that ensures your website is delivered quickly to users around the world.

We provide firewall protection to protect your site from attacks and DDoS protection to prevent your website from being overwhelmed by traffic spikes. We also offer an SSL certificate to encrypt data transmitted between your website and your users. This is important if your website handles sensitive customer data or payment details.

  • WordPress Security

    Security is of utmost importance to our clients so we ensure website installations are secured on multiple levels. Our WordPress developers use enterprise-level hosting from WP Engine which is universally considered the best WP hosting.

    WP Engine detects threats and blocks attacks to your website and can be secured with multi-factor password authentication requiring an administrators mobile phone to gain access to your files.

    We integrate your website with Cloudflare DNS to provide DDoS mitigation, Bot management and provide further performance and security enhancements.

  • Caching & CDN

    Our developers configure your website to work with advanced caching and a CDN to significantly reduce web page loading times. 

    WPEngine web hosting is based in London with a CDN that has several global server locations to deliver assets faster as they are closer to your international website visitors. Images, CSS and JS files benefit from the performance enhancements due to the CDN reducing your web page loading speed and increasing your Google PageSpeed score. 

  • SSL Certificate

    All hosting we provide includes an SSL certificate. This ensures data transfer is encrypted between your WP website and your website visitors. 

    Google recommends all websites use an SSL certificate which will improve your website’s rank on Google.

    We can import an existing SSL certificate or use a specific SSL certificate if required for a higher level of security, ideal for WooCommerce websites.

  • Daily Backups

    Your hosting is automatically backed-up daily with copies retained for at least 30 days.

    On demand backups of your website can be made which are useful if you need to make updates to plugins or add new functionality.

    Previous website backups can be restored within minutes from within the WPEngine dashboard. 

    A staging and development server is also available which also provide daily backups. 

  • Code Optimisation

    Our developer optimises your websites to ensure only the required JS and CSS files are loaded per page. 

    Unused files are often automatically added by WordPress plugins and themes causing web page bloat and can significantly slow down your website.

    We identify those redundant files and prevent them from loading throughout the site. 

    Code is further optimised by minifying and combining files which enhances loading times further. 

  • Image Optimisation

    Images make up the majority of a web page size and have the biggest impact on page loading times. 

    We created several images sizes to ensure the correct size is derived to the device it is being viewed. This allows for smaller image file sizes to be delivered which can greatly speed up your website and reduce data usage.

    Images are also compressed with no visible loss of quality which can reduce file sizes by 50% or more. 

MULTILINGUAL

Engaging More Cultures & Customers

The WPML multilingual plugin is an all-in-one solution for creating and managing multilingual websites and blogs on WordPress.

FAQS

Questions & Answers

FAQS ON WORDPRESS

Our WordPress development services FAQ section answers common questions regarding our processes, timeline, pricing, and more. If you have any further queries or want to discuss your project, please do not hesitate to contact us. We would be more than happy to assist you.

Do you use page builders such as Bricks Builders or Elementor?

Yes, we do. These page builders allow clients to create their pages and manage their content effectively. It also reduces the need to go back to us to make minor changes to the layout of your website.

One issue with page builders is if configured incorrectly, they load a significant amount of unnecessary code, also known as code bloat. We ensure this doesn’t happen using various techniques. In addition, we utilise multiple forms of caching for assets and file delivery.

Page builders also offer many advanced SEO features that are easier to incorporate into a website with a page builder than without.

Elementor is the most popular page builder for WordPress. However, Bricks Builder is more recent and advanced and is our preference. However, we can work with Elementor, Visual Composer and Advanced Custom Fields.

How long does it take to develop a website?

When building a website, the time it takes can vary depending on the size of the website. Smaller websites can take up to a week to build, while larger websites or online stores can take up to 2-3 months. Sometimes, there can be delays in the project, and this is usually because we are waiting for content from the client. For example, we may need pictures of your business or descriptions of your products. We try to anticipate these delays and let you know as early as possible so that you have enough time to provide the necessary content.

What design & development process do you follow?

Our process for website design and development begins with an initial consultation to grasp your requirements. We conduct thorough research on your business, niche, and competitors. Wireframing precedes the design phase, where we meticulously create and select elements such as text, images, videos, fonts, and colours. After finalizing the design, we transition to the development stage, followed by rigorous testing before deploying the completed website live. 

Do you develop mobile responsive websites?

We develop responsive mobile websites based on the design files we create or supplied by our clients. We use at least three break points for desktop tablets and mobile devices. However, we can develop additional breakpoints for large and small mobile devices. We also resize the text to ensure it displays effectively at various mobile widths.
