WordPress powers 25% of the internet… 50,000 new sites every day
Whatever you want to do with WordPress, Silicon Dales can help get you there.
To the right, you can see the latest WordPress Tutorials we’ve posted. We put these up into the Silicon Dales website to give a little bit back to the open source community. Everyone has to make a start, and there is no such thing as a stupid question.
However, we mainly deal in complex WordPress integrations, hosting consultations, or other WordPress tasks.
This means we work building:
- custom WordPress themes;
- custom WordPress plugins;
- Evaluating and troubleshooting issues in (mainly complex) WordPress websites;
- planning, designing, launching, maintaining and supporting complex WordPress projects.
What does “Complex” mean?
We said complex a few times above, but what does this mean?
Well, with WordPress, a “simple” website would be a WordPress website which uses a fairly standard implementation, relatively few visitors, and a core theme, like Twenty Seventeen (or 16, 15, 14, 12… and so on!).
A WordPress website can be more complex just by having “lots” of visitors. For lots, read tens of thousands per day – or more. A busyWordPress website might need special caching, a different database setup or a hosting upgrade to handle extra load.
Plugins, customization and business use case
Every extra plugin adds a level of complexity to your WordPress website, especially from the point of view of updates. If your website has custom code, or is utilized in an unusual way by your organization, this can all add complexity to your WordPress project and the ways in which it can be properly maintained, secured and backed-up.
We mainly work with WordPress websites which feature some form of ecommerce, usually through WooCommerce. Almost any WooCommerce based website is complex – because you are handling a lot more than just content: orders, shipping rules, tax rules, transactions, transactional email.
Each element will need to be setup and maintained for your particular business, meaning solutions must go beyond the standardized or the automated.
How to know if your WordPress install is complex
In short, a complex WordPress website is one which: features some degree of complexity, particularly where this complexity is placed under high load by being busy, popular, and well used. In a business context, this means your WordPress website is bringing in money to your operation (whether as in integral part of your marketing strategy, or a sales outlet in its own right).
If your WordPress website is Mission Critical, it makes business sense to have WordPress expert developers, like Silicon Dales, be responsible for your site.
