Jan’s Web Services in Detail:
I’ve installed hundreds of WordPress sites, written several plugins, and made lots of adjustments to themes, and even created a theme from scratch. I love being a designer sand have a slightly different perspective from many, especially when it comes to converting code like HTML and CSS into a theme. Installing WordPress onto your website takes very little time in fact you really can have a basic functioning site up in a few minutes) though it may take a bit longer if you’ve never dealt with coding like PHPMyAdmin or the DB Wizard in your hosting CPanel -control panel or FTP. Adding or changing content is very simple; there is no code, HTML, CSS, etc to mess with, and is almost self explanatory. I’ve put lots of non technical people on WP installations, and I can usually get them through the basics in about an hour including showing them how to find free or premium themes and install them. Configuring settings and extending the site with plug-ins can take a bit more time, but overall it’s still a fairly simple process to manage, and pretty hard to break or screw up. Building a theme is where you’ll have to spend the most time IMO. Different parts of the page are built by different PHP files (footer, header, body, etc), so you have to get your head around all the different little chunks of HTML scattered around in the various files.
Of course different designers handle the situation differently so it can vary a bit from theme to theme. If you’ve never dealt with a system like this before, you may want to pick apart a theme, and even check out one of the many “how to build a WordPress theme” tutorials that are floating around the web to get a gauge on how long it takes.
What Our Clients Have Said
WordPress Development Project – October 2011:
” From our first call to Jan and all throughout our working with her she has been professional, on time, high energy, funny, extremely gracious, and gone way beyond what we thought we would receive in hiring her to work with us. We are creating a new business from scratch, and there are so many questions to be answered when undertaking a project like this.. But Jan has and continues to be patient, prudent, reliable, and took the time to make sure we understood all going on and has helped us create a fantastic website and marketing platform to sell our product. We are still meeting to perform final tweaks to our website but are so happy with her fantastic work .
We plan to continue to use Jan to monitor and maintain our website going forward. We got SO much for our money, and you could not ask for a better person to work with. Especially if you are on a budget and trying to get up and running. You won’t be sorry she is a true professional and a wonderful person. ”
HTML Dog Training Website and Lead Generating Design – November 2011
” I knew immediately that I would be able to communicate with Jan, no matter how many problems we ran into. First it was the Holidays. She still kept up with her business. Then there were computer problems. We hired an outside Company to make sure there were no glitches from that! Then, in order to have pictures, Jan had to get pictures from Facebook.( A relative had so generously put on. Thank you Checkie!) Then, Jan took our information from my daughter’s business card and flyer for the print. Jan added features that I had no idea she was capable of doing. I think she is a genius! She admits she is a n***, but talks like your best friend. She never makes you feel stupid or loses patience with you! It was a lot of work to get the final product, through no fault of hers. The Cable Provider has blocks intermittently on email. It caused extreme hardship, but Jan took it in her own hands to solve the problem!. She also added more features that would benefit my daughter’s business with no extra charge. I highly recommend this lady and wish she live nearby…….. just because i became very fond of her. Don’t be afraid to go out of town to get a Web Design. Go to Jan in Oregon. She is the best! ”
On Exceeding Our Client’s Expectations
” Jan did a fantastic job for us and got us out of a real bind. Our previous Web Designer just disappeared and left us without a functioning website. In our line of work it is critical that we provide the potential customer with pictures of our finished product on our website and it was not functioning due to lack of attention. Nur went beyond my expectations and I really felt that I had her full attention at all times. I look forward to a long working relationship with Design by Jan ”
