Our Web Developers follow coding standards and best practices to improve readability of source code, which allows other Developers with the same skill set the ability to work on the website if need be. This gives our clients peace of mind that they’re never tied to a single Developer or Agency if unknown situations occur. As well as clear code, we also ensure that content is easy to manage by carefully considering the user experience of the WordPress admin area. We design the back-end of the website so that adding content is really easy, dynamic and not admin intensive. You don’t need coding or design experience to manage our websites.
Web Development is usually the activity that takes place after the web design stage, assuming it is a new website project. Although we’re often tasked with fixing or improving websites that are already built and assuming those developers have followed coding conventions, we should be able to help out. If we can’t for whatever reason, our Client Services team will explain everything to you in plain English and propose alternative solutions.
WordPress offers lots of free and premium plugins to boost your website’s functionality and it can be difficult to resist the temptation of downloading shiny new features so easily. However, they can come at a cost when too many plugins are installed because they increase the amount of code required to run the website. Therefore, site speed is dramatically affected, especially when poorly written plugins are active too. We only use plugins that we trust and only if they’re absolutely necessary. We strive to minimise plugin use by building functionality directly into the website which results in faster websites.
