Custom Plugin Design and Installation

WordPress is a content management platform initially designed around building a blog.  Since it’s early days however, it’s become a powerful tool used to control the design and contents of websites, and is one of the most popular website architectures in the world.

 

WordPress is among the simplest, easiest to use CMS platforms, and allows users to easily manage their websites after initial development is completed.

 

Since it’s such a popular system, it also has thousands of themes and plugins available allowing it to be turned from a simple CMS application into almost anything needed of it.  Coretechs can help with wordpress in a number of ways:

Installation and Server Setup

We can install WordPress on a host of your choice, get you up and running quickly, and then turn the keys over to you for content creation and upkeep. Once you are running, WordPress is ideal to manage on your own or with a small team of staff.

Configuration and Design

Can’t find anything off the shelf available for WordPress? Coretechs can also configure the site and design a theme to meet your specifications from scratch. Our expert theme builders can turn a vanilla WordPress installation into whatever is needed for your application.

Management and Updates

Once your site is up and running, even the simplest site still needs to be maintained. Coretechs can install updates, manage security pages, keep the server and files in good shape and make sure your site never bogs down or develops issues as time goes by.

Custom Plugin Design and Installation

Even WordPress with its myriad style and design options doesn’t offer everything. Coretechs can design custom plugins, widgets, tools and themes to accomplish whatever you need to on your site. From full featured E-Commerce systems to User Log-In and Subscription Management Systems, We've designed it all and can help you implement it into a WordPress environment, tailored to your needs.

RAMP WordPress Deployment Tool

Coretechs uses and recommends setup of RAMP for your wordpress site deployment.  With a test and a production site, you can make sure that all content and site changes are approved before the general public sees them, and RAMP makes this easy.  You build your new contents and pages, and then use RAMP to move them out en masse, or one at a time, safely and easily, with no messy in-between period of pages not working or not being finished.

Why use a deployment tool such as RAMP?

There are several ways to set up a wordpress site.  Some small companies will elect to just use a production site, and add pages to it as they are able to.  They may keep a page hidden until it’s ready, but this makes deployment of more than one page, or pages with widgets and plugins very difficult to do in a timely manner. Coretechs is a big proponent of always having a test site and a production site.  You can make your mistakes on the test site, have others proofread content easily, and do stress and load testing as well; all while keeping unfinished content away from the public eye.

The Coretechs Solution

The problem with having a test and production site comes from the risk of accidentally moving unfinished or broken content from test to production.  A system such as RAMP allows you to move out contents through a UI that allows for checking each page and file as it gets queued up for release, and gives you one last chance to make sure nothing unfinished or unintended get’s moved our for customers to see.
