Frequently Asked Questions
As a WordPress developer, I do not use paid themes. I do not believe if you are hiring a WordPress developer, that you should have to pay a continuous license to keep your theme up to date, same goes for page builders. There is no need to pay $100s of dollars a year for a page builder when WordPress has it’s own block editor. I have always built custom themes my whole career and I find that paid themes are coded in a very bad way with tons of bloat. They typically do not incorporating into WordPress natively and just writing code on top of WordPress, or forcing website owners to use specific plugins for compatibility.
The short answer, yes. But more than likely your last WordPress developer or WordPress designer has included bloated code, a paid theme, or even a paid plugin that handles your whole website layout. (Elementor, Divi, Avada ect) The process of a redesign is usually cleaning up the mess first and getting a cleaner WordPress code base which includes incorporating your site into WordPress natively with minimal third party applications for content editing.
Yes, WordPress support comes in many forms. If you find yourself with a blank white screen, we can help. You updated your WordPress core or WordPress plugins and now your website is broken, we can help. If you need WordPress support in the form of showing you how WordPress backed works, we can do that too via screen share training. But we typically do not offer support for WordPress websites that are relying heavily on a paid theme or a page builder plugin. With the exception of Elmentor using the base Hello Elementor theme.
The over all process of our WordPress design or development usually depends on the project scope. But on average we can deliver a fully functional WordPress website within 6-8 weeks, for smaller projects it can be as soon as 4 weeks. Our process is the same for both design and development as we are creating a custom theme to match our design.
- Design: Create a mock up in Photoshop of the home page design and layout as well as a sub page. Once the artwork is approved we move to development.
- Development: Code out a WordPress theme that matches our mock ups. Deploy to a demo server for real world interaction and WordPress admin access.
- Live: Migrate your newly created custom WordPress website to your server of choice.
