Basic WordPress Install With Divi Theme
We install WordPress along with the necessary Plugins that are essential to the security and functionality of your site. We also install our default theme that we use which is the Divi Theme by Elegant Themes. This theme is then styled according to the styling that you want for your site, such as colours, fonts and layout.
The Divi Theme is one of the most popular, versatile and updated themes for WordPress. Every week the developers are adding new functionality and improvements to the theme.
Also included, of course, is the basics of your Home Page and a Contact Page with a Google Map (Google Maps API is required. We recommend generating your own API as it is unwise to rely on ours and will walk you through the easy process of getting one) and all relevant contact details and links.
As we have a forever subscription for the Divi Theme, updates to the theme will always be available through the WordPress Dashboard
Should you not want to use the Divi Theme, you can of course purchase your own theme from any of the vendors that sell them and we will customise and style them. We prefer that you make this purchase so that you own the theme and will receive the updates that are necessary during their lifespan.
Add Basic Pages
Pages that you require can be added to the Package such as an About Us, Services and other unique pages which will all be linked to in the main menu. Some pages have specialist content so do see the below additions.
R 550 per page
Photo Galleries and Sliders
Photo galleries and sliders can be created. These are specialist additions which require the correct images sizes and functionalities. Images must be the correct size in order to download fast enough on mobile networks in order to avoid visitors leaving your site due to excessive download times on their mobile phones.
Basic Image Galleries with Lightbox up to 16 images.
Do note that we only charge for one of each and then make them into a Divi library item if using that theme. This make it easy for you to add image galleries to pages or posts. All you then need to do is change the images
Basic Sliders with up to 8 images
We use the free version of the Master Slider plugin for basic sliders. The slider we make can easily be duplicated and the images changed, giving you the freedom to add as many as you want as you grow your site.
Should you wish for more elaborate sliders there are numerous commercial plugins which you can purchase such as the Revolution Slider. Again we recommend to purchase them so that you own the rights to updates. We will then create the slider for you. Do note that these can be rather complex to use so you would need to learn how to use them for future use
Additional cost to creating a complex slider using a commercial plugin depending on the complexity.
R 700 to R 1,900
Shopping Cart and ECommerce
Creating a full and complete shopping cart can be an expensive endeavor should we do it all for you, After all you may have hundreds or even thousands of products. However we can set it up for you. We would install and configure the Woo-commerce plugin, create you product categories and place a 2 products in each category. You will then be taught how to add your products to the site, either personally if you are close by or by sending links to woo-commerce video resources and tutorials.
Costs are as follows:
R 4,500 plus R 50 per product placed
We do not make use of the default blog template in WordPress. Divi allows us to use the builder for blog posts and the default blog index page. This allows much greater functionality and custom styling to your blog posts. Thus we create a default post as a library item which can be loaded into a new post and then easily edited. This also means that you can have different styling and layout for the different categories in your blog section rather than the bland styling of the WordPress blog template. Read our post on this here
Creating the blog post library item costs:
On page search engine optimisation (SEO) is part of our page development. We tend to use the All In One SEO plugin due to its simplicity, however there are others to choose from such as Yoast SEO which offer a more complex functionality. as you create posts and pages it is easy for you to edit the SEO aspects of your new post or page. We will teach you how and what’s important to do.
