Website Development

There are many choices for setting up a website these days. Static html sites are giving way to content management systems. The most popular CMS is WordPress, a free, open-source platform that is based on php. Thousands of “theme” templates are available, some for a fee, some free. I’ve yet to find one that didn’t need some kind of major customization to get it to display the way I want it to.

Drupal is a lot more robust, with control options you never even thought of. You could run a nation off of it.

Joomla! is another platform that has a very unique interface. While it’s a viable tool, and I will work with an existing site, it’s not my first choice.

Then there are CMS’s that are proprietary (not open-source). Most charge monthly fees to use them. The only upside is you don’t have to worry about updating the sofware.

Web development can include

  • Search Engine Optimization (SE0)
  • Plugin customization
  • Theme customization
  • Shopping Cart integration
  • Membership / Restricted Access
  • Forum
  • Image galleries
  • Social Media
  • Animation/Interactive
  • Google Analytics
  • Standards Compliance
Domain name selection and hosting consulting is also available.

All customized code is built using hand-coding techniques. This makes for cleaner code that is reusable and browser-compliant.
