WordPress updates

WordPress is the most popular content management software. Small pieces of software called plugins extend the WordPress platform with galleries, calendars, Facebook feeds, Google maps and other features.

The most important drawback to WordPress is its vulnerability to hackers. The solution is to move your site to secure, managed hosting with a good backup system, and have WordPress installation, themes, plugins and widgets updated once or twice a year.

Installing WordPress
Wordpress is a framework of 1300-1500 files. We begin by installing these files on your server. The WordPress framework, plugins and widgets are created by other people – we simply assemble them and modify them to suit your needs.

Next we make a page design (called a theme). We start with a basic theme from WordPress and make a “child theme”. We can customize the layout and text styles to get the look you want. To protect your own security we prefer not to use free themes, although we can match any free theme you like.

After we install WordPress and customize a theme, we make sure your plugins are compatible.

Your blank pages are now ready for content. You can send text and images to us and we can make pages with your content. Or you can add your own images and text.

At Kits Media, we install a back-up free of charge for the first two years of your site. If something happens, we can get your site working again in a short amount of time. We also offer managed hosting on a Canadian server for an added layer of security for our Canadian clients.
