What are Themes & Templates?
Templates & themes are the cosmetic 'skin' your site presents to the world. It determines the look of your site, the layout & menu structure. Our custom-designed themes & templates utilize responsive design so your site will be fully mobile-device compatible. Once it has been designed & the site is launched, changes can easily be made to it in future if you require additional content or layout changes to accomodate a new feature on the site or simply a cosmetic 'face lift'.

Their flexibility allows site developers to extend their projects by utilizing the many thousands of plugins such as e-commerce, image galleries, forums, calendars, news modules, as well as many others, either freely available or commercially licenced for use on the website for a reasonable fee. It allows us to customize as much as required to meet your requirements.
Can I learn to manage my website?
We can provide telephone training to teach you basic site maintenance, using the administrator interface. Depending on your 'comfort level' & computer skills, we can teach you to do as much or as little as you feel able to manage, such as edit, add or remove content text & add or remove images etc.
For everything else, we are happy to do all maintenance required on your site, logged & billed at a competitve hourly rate. Most of our clients want us to mangae all of their site maintenance, leaving them free to concentrate on 'growing their buisiness'.
