Wordpress Content Management System

A Content Management System (CMS) allows you to update your website yourself. We use Wordpress, a very powerful CMS.

Wordpress requires no programming skills and is ideal for someone who can easily handle software packages such as Microsoft Word or emails. If you struggle with these packages, however, then Wordpress might prove more difficult and you might wish to consider a brochure site.

All of our Wordpress websites enable customers to:

  • Add and delete pages.
  • Change the page content - words and images.
  • Have a blog or latest news section.

Optionally, Wordpress can also be programmed to offer a lot of additional functionality.

What we offer as standard:

  • Unique design - unlike many web design companies, we design each Wordpress site to match the needs of each individual customer and do NOT use one of the pre-existing templates.
  • Home page, inner page format, contact page and blog post - we create a unique home page template and a unique simplified inner page format for you. We also create the contact page and a sample blog post.
  • Completed home page, a sample inner page and a working contact form - we create these pages for you. You then have the ability to create as many additional pages as you wish using a WYSIWYG editor. If required, we could create the initial pages for you for a small additional cost per page.
  • Blog and/or new pages - the ability to create an onsite blog and/or news pages is standard.
  • Search engine optimisation - we allow you add important SEO coding information (title tag and meta description) into each page using custom fields. Note that this method is better than the plugins offered by most designers as custom fields do not take as long to load. We also offer SEO-friendly URLs - rather than a page URL such as mysite/co.uk/p=12345, we enable you to use selected keywords such as mysite.co.uk/plumbing-services/suffolk.
  • Plugins to speed-up Wordpress - we upload plugins that speed up your site by optimising your images, making use of pre-caching and reducing the size of your database.
  • Selected image gallery plugins - we are happy to upload one of the image gallery plugins that we have already tried and tested.
  • Free training and documentation - we offer free training (2-3 hours), comprehensive written instructions (of standard Wordpress features) and email/telephone support at all reasonable times.
  • Ongoing updates - as part of our hosting, we deal with the (frequent) Wordpress updates.

What We Charge Extra For

  • Additional page formats - we can create as many layouts as you wish.
  • Additional functionality - such as database searches, bookings, Ecommerce, Paypal etc.
  • Non-standard plugins.
MGL Recruitment uses database searches

MGL Recruitment uses a specialist plugin to create a searchable list of vacancies. We spent some time tailoring this plugin to achieve the formatting and results required.
