WordPress Design & Plugin Development
What Is WordPress?
WordPress is an online, open-source website creation tool that is most likely one of the easiest, and most powerful blogging and website content management systems out there. It allows users to easily add, edit and remove pages, blog posts, images, and media on their website. It is incredibly powerful because of its open-source nature meaning that developers from around the world can contribute and develop plugins which serve specific functions. WordPress is very flexible in the way its pages can be developed to look any way you want.

WordPress Website Development iOnline’s experienced web development team has extensive training and knowledge in the WordPress CMS Framework. Using this knowledge, they are able to create, alter, or amend new designs, content, and plugin functionality to WordPress websites.

Customised WordPress Plugin Development One of the most prominent features of WordPress is it’s ‘extendibility’ – this means that many developers from around the world are able to contribute and develop their own plugins that serve specific purposes. iOnline is no exception to this. Our technical team is able to consult with you and develop customised WordPress Plugins that can interact with WordPress, enhance your website’s functionality, or even interact with other third party services.
Maintenance and Patching As WordPress has become the industry standard in website and content management systems, it has become extremely popular in the web development community. No software is infallible and so as time progresses, vulnerabilities in the software are discovered which are then exploited by malicious users. To counteract this, iOnline offers a Monthly Maintenance and Patch service whereby:-
- All the functionality of the website is tested by hand
- All pages, images, forms and links are checked
- The latest stable version of the WordPress installation is updated and maintained
- All installed plugins are updated to their latest stable versions
- A monthly report is sent detailing exactly what maintenance was carried out on the website
WordPress Server Migrations Often WordPress websites need to be migrated from one host to another for any number of reasons and iOnline’s technical team have extensive experience in migrating WordPress websites from one host to another. Unfortunately there is no simple way to perform these migrations without an intimate knowledge of how WordPress functions ‘behind-the-scenes’. This means that moving the website requires planning to manipulate the database, the WordPress installation itself, DNS alterations and more. iOnline can move or migrate your WordPress website without error and in a timely fashion.
