***If you know what you want, have a theme, fonts, images, text and plugins selected and just “want to get ‘er done”, we can do that. A wee bit extra for a sprint :), but it should be possible. Some minor customization may be possible depending on time. Don’t forget to have a Terms and Privacy Policy ready, especially if this is a professional site. These are often forgetten. Also, please make yourself available during the full day to answer any questions and keep things rolling. If you are busy during the week, then sometimes Friday afternoon and into the evening is better, when everything else quiets down. On site work is possible, travel and accommodation extra.

1. Debugging or customizing a theme or plugin can take time. Usually a copy of the site is made on the local machine so that it can be inspected without affecting the live site. A page speed test may be done and debugging turned on to see if there are any obvious problems. An IDE (integrated development environment) is used to assist with navigating the code and provide further debugging capabilities. If the problem exists in the code, it should be possible to find. It can take eight to ten hours to fully work through a problem and come up with a solution. Because of the wide variety of themes and plugins available, it is not possible to be familiar with all of them. Your unique situation may require extra care to ensure the right changes are made. You can help with this process by selecting quality plugins and themes, being clear about what you need and documenting this separately from your WordPress site so that this can be presented to your developer and give them something to work from.

2. Four hour minimum.
