Happy to announce I’ve just put the new website live for Hall Farm, a relaxing set of holiday cottages based in the heart of the Norfolk Broads.
This project required more planning than usual, taking into account the mass of content the old site contained, then working out what wasn’t needed going forward to help simplify and improve the website.
The WordPress website also needed further optimisation so it wasn’t dependent on such a varied selection of plugins, some of which were no longer supported and could affect future performance and security.
I recently setup the Rose of India with a new website. This website also includes a simple table booking functionality which is easy for the restaurant to administer and manage.
As a FREE service I offer two methods for restaurant bookings, either a simple method that submits bookings to an email address (easier for restaurants to manage day to day) or a dedicated restaurant booking manager which while more flexible may require an hour session to demonstrate how to manage it.
A major release of WordPress launches today with version 5.0, the biggest change to WordPress for 4 years.
Along with the major update to WordPress, PHP (the programming language that powers WordPress) will be ending security support for PHP 5.6 and 7.0 this month.
I’ve just re-built the WordPress website for FitTax which needed a fresh start. From a design point of view the website was already in a good place but we needed to clean up the code behind the scenes.
On rebuilding the website I was able to optimise how quickly the website loads, which while a small benefit for search engine optimisation, the bigger advantage would be seen by those visitors browsing the website.
The new website now doesn’t rely on too many WordPress plugins but for the few that were chosen they provide real benefits to the client. After a 1 hour tutorial session we’ve shown the client how easy it is to update and change the design of pages where needed or add new blog posts.
I’ve just relaunched the website for Coleman School of Motoring, which needed a refresh both visually and to the code behind the scenes.
This was a good example of a website which was re-designed and put live in just 3 days. This project was made easier as the majority of content and structure from the old website was still worth using. We just had to decide the best way refresh the website design and to facilitate updating the code that lies beneath.
