Santa Barbara WordPress

Let us help you with your WordPress site

Running a simple WordPress site isn’t so simple and easy as it may seem. Once something breaks, a plugin begins to go nuts, or your boss demands a new feature be added, then running the WordPress site becomes a much tougher job.

This is where we come in. We want to be your go to guys in Santa Barbara.

New design and theme modifications

We create beautiful fast loading WordPress themes customized for you and your business. The way you appear online is so important these days, so we are happy to create designs from scratch to make you stand out from your competition.
A lot of the times our client’s have a website that they are reasonably satisfied with, but they need help tweaking the design. Perhaps a bug fix that is causing an issue  once they’ve updated their WP version. We are experts at finding these little bugs and squashing them for you.


Plugins and plugin modifications

We love developing custom made plugin solutions for our WordPress clients. It may be projects with heavier and bigger requirements, while other times its minor changes to existing plugins. We can do it all.

Updates and maintenance

Did you know that updating your WordPress site to the latest version can break the entire site and the database? If you have custom-made revisions on your site, updating it without being sure of what you are doing, may cause big problems. Have peace of mind and let us update your site, as we know WordPress inside and out.


Moving sites

Things do not always stay the same when we decide to move to new locations, change our business name, or restructure our organization etc. The same goes for websites, and this is a most common task we help our clients with. Moving their existing site to new domains and redirecting old domain addresses to new ones is a technical matter.  Google will likely penalize a new website for duplicate content unless the old site has it’s URL redirection setup properly.  Let us help you, to make sure that you do not get penalized!
