Once we have handed over your website to you, you may want to change the options on the menus on your site. For example, perhaps you want to give prominence to a special offer page you have created, or try moving options around to see how it effects website enquiries. With WordPress it is easy to edit menus:
WordPress is such a popular platform and so it is occasionally a target for hackers. You should follow the best-practices below, and pass these on to anyone who helps manage your site:
Please delete all unnecessary users from your WordPress admin and change all passwords regularly. You can do this in the “Users” menu of your WordPress dashboard. This will help keep your admin panel secure.
Do not download plugins that you can’t trust. This is often the top way that sites get infected. If in doubt, please consult us.
Please delete all unwanted or deactivated plugins.
You need to make sure you regularly update your WordPress system and all of your plugins. This is hugely important!

If you are new to online marketing, words like "platform" and "CMS" can sound like nonsensical jargon. So let's make things simple...
Are you going to be selling products on your website? Will you be taking payments? Will you need a shopping basket and checkout system? If the answer to these questions is "yes" then you'll probably need our Shopify website design packages.
Do you just need a website to advertise and promote your products & services? Are you looking to build a content-based site rather than an online-retail store? Then you will probably need our WordPress CMS website packages.
Don't worry if you are still confused; just get in touch and we'll talk you through it.
