Experienced WordPress Developer

I have extensive experience as a freelance WordPress developer. I work with London and UK based companies and individuals to build custom WordPress themes or add new features. I can also help fixing problems with existing WordPress installs.

New WordPress Sites

I have built many WordPress websites and know exactly how to get the best out of the platform.

I use as few plugins as possible to make your site faster, more secure and require less maintenance.

Fixes & Improvements

Many web design companies claim to be WordPress developers but they actually aren't. It's common that WordPress sites are just an off-the-shelf theme and mass of plugins - which makes a slow, insecure, unstable mess.

I have years of experience untangling these types of site and will help you get a WordPress site to be proud of.

WordPress Fixes and Improvements

Hacked Sites

There are a few ways to know if your WordPress site has been hacked/defaced: the site runs slowly, large numbers of new pages that you didn't create, errors shown or links don't send you to the right place. Don't worry though - I'll clean up your website after a hack.

Slow Sites

Slow websites are frustrating for your users and they don't perform well in search engines. A slow site can be because your site isn't optimised, it might have been hacked or maybe your server needs upgrading.

Error Messages

Website that aren't maintained or auto-update without testing might cause errors or warnings to show on the site.

You might find that features on your site don't work like they used to or not at all.

Broken Features

Sliders, contact forms, user input forms, navigation menus are all common on websites and if they aren't maintained they can break over time.

Usually caused by other software being upgraded and your website's code not keeping up to date.

New WordPress Websites

WordPress themes from scratch

When I develop a new WordPress site I build from scratch - I don't use prebuilt themes. This makes your site secure, fast, and flexible.

Design to WordPress

I will create a perfect replica of your design as a custom, responsive WordPress theme. If you have an in-house design team but no WordPress developers this is where I'll step in.

Import / Migrate into WordPress

So you have a site already but you want to put it into WordPress and don't know how. I will be able to import or migrate your content and if required your current design into WordPress so you can make use of all the great features that WordPress offers.

Ecommerce on WordPress

If you want to start taking payments on WordPress, you have a few options available - such as simple Paypal forms or a full WooCommerce development. Feel free to read features of my ecommerce sites or head over here if it's something specific to WooCommerce.

Healthcare Federation Website

The Stort Valley Healthcare website has two key functions, one as a brochure website offering supplementary healthcare services to the East Hertfordshire area, and the other as a federation member portal. I originally designed the site in 2016 and was redesigned following a shift in focus in 2019.
