Bespoke WordPress website redesign for large Devon based window supplier and installer

Exeter-based Aspect Windows have certainly got the experience and dedication in aluminium and PVCu windows and doors. That’s why they’ve been supplying architects, contractors, and private customers for over 35 years.

WordPress Plugins

Plugins are small apps that allow you to add more features and functions to your WordPress website.

There are currently over 50,000 open source plugins available for free from the wordpress.org plugin directory. They can help you enhance anything from your E-commerce facilities, online booking and image display to fundraising options, secure logins and data gathering.

Whatever you want your site to do, there will be a plugin to help you achieve it.

Beyond those available directly from WordPress there are thousands more that can be sourced from third-party WordPress plugin sites alongside additional premium options. These have been devised for sale via individual developers and tech firms and are available to buy or install on an on-going contract.

Each plugin you choose will help you to provide exactly what your customers want and need. For example you can:

  • Run an e-commerce site using the WooCommerce plugin
  • Create a ‘live update’ job board using the Job Manager plugin
  • Build a business directory using the Gravity Forms Directory plugin
  • Build an Estate Agency website with the Property Hive plugin
  • Build a link heavy news website with the Jetpack plugin
  • Add an image slider to your beauty website with the Slider by Nivo Plugin

While WordPress plugins will help to give your site a lot of additional functions, you should make sure that you limit the number you use. Because they are created by a third-party, their base code may not be as perfect as it should be. Having too many could slow your site down and lead to bugs, glitches or compatibility issues.

To avoid this happening in our builds, we always add custom code to your site and only include the plugins that are essential to optimise the user experience of your site. The core set of plugins we do use regularly have been tried and tested over many years and give you the enhanced functionality you need, including:

Advanced Custom Fields

Advanced Custom Fields

This plugin allows us to add custom fields across your site wherever they are needed. It's one of the most important plugins we use because adding additional customised data collection to WordPress edit screens makes the process of editing and maintaining your own content much easier.

Contact Form 7

Contact Form 7

Another important plugin for any site that features a contact or information gathering form. Contact Form 7 is fully customisable and gives optimum flexibility enabling you to manage multiple forms. Its CAPTCHA filtering also helps to stop spam and junk email flooding your inbox.

WPMU DEV

WPMU DEV

WPMU DEV is an impressive range of hi-grade developer tools that gives us all the resources we need to manage your site effectively. Covering onsite performance, crucial backups, optimisation and more, WPMU DEV is an essential toolkit for maximum site efficiency and maintenance.

To add to the excellent secure options already offered by WordPress are plenty of trusted additional plugins that offer you and your customers extra layers of security and protection. 

The following are a selection of security based plugins that we have included on sites for customers from every business sector. Installed and used correctly they will protect your site from brute force attacks as well as scan for hacks, malware and viruses.

Using advanced risk analysis, reCAPTCHA can alert you to risky traffic such as abusive or spam reviews or unknown log-ins. While keeping malicious bots at bay, it allows genuine users through without a problem.

FAQs

I’m looking for WordPress developers, can you help?

We’d love to help. We have WordPress clients throughout the UK but if you are looking to work with local WordPress developers we can arrange a meeting at our Devon office or visit you at your premises. We are happy to work by email, phone or face to face, whatever works best for you.

Do I need special tools or skills to use WordPress?

If you wish to edit your WordPress website throughout development or after it goes live, then we can simply provide you with a WordPress login and you’ll be ready to go. There are no special skills or tools required to use WordPress, but if you’re not sure about what you’re are doing, then our team will be on hand ready to help.

What is website hosting?

Website hosting allows individuals and businesses to display their websites on the Internet. Websites are made up of various files containing the code and databases needed to display the website correctly on a users browser. These files are stored on computers called servers. Servers are kept on 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to ensure your website always remains online. We offer a quality web hosting service, which will keep your website, not only live, but as safe and secure as possible.

What is a domain name?

Your computer connects to a websites server via an IP address, which is a long string of numbers. A domain name is a friendly version of this IP address, so that users can easily remember and identify a website. You need both a domain name and hosting for your website to work.

My WordPress website has been hacked, can you help?

Definitely! Our WordPress developers have a huge amount of technical knowledge. We don’t just build WordPress websites, we understand how they are put together from the database to the front end. If your WordPress website has been hacked please get in touch, we can conduct an audit and either deal with the hacked content there and then or at the very least best advise you on the next steps.

If I ask for a quote, what happens next?

We will usually arrange a phone call or if your are based locally in Devon, a meeting to get things started. From this initial discussion we can find out more about your business, your audience and your marketing goals. We will put forward our recommendations from information gathered and if you’re happy with what we’ve said, we can put together a project proposal and move forward from there.

Paul and the team really understand what we need from our website - they work with us; make valid comments and suggestions and do not push us to do anything we are not ready for. They have basically guided us through change and helped us realise what potential there is for our website.

The recent SEO audit we commissioned them to do was superb and has really helped us focus on how we can do better - and what we can realistically achieve ourselves and what we need them to help us with.

No pressure, no pushing - just good collaborative working.
