Website updating service

website updating service for small businessNeed your website updated but don’t know how or don’t have the time? Agumdoo Design’s  website updating service can help. Whether you want to add new content, videos, menus, pages, contact forms, link to PDF reports, maps or other features to your site, Agumdoo can do it.

How our Website updating service works

Updating your website is quick and hassle free. Just send me an e-mail or ring me and let me know what you want to add or change on your website. Whether your website is built with basic html or uses a content management system like WordPress or Joomla, I can take care of the updates for you at my hourly rate. No subscriptions or hidden costs — you simply pay for the time it takes to make the updates.

Things I can change on your website

Some of my clients rely on me for periodic content updates, and let me know when they want to add new pages or content to their website. Others have the time to do basic updates themselves, but rely on me to add scripts or custom functionality like contact forms, notice boards and other more advanced features they are not interested in doing themselves.

Joomla 1.5 security risks

joomla 1.5 risksJoomla 1.5 security risks

Joomla has a list of vulnerabilities affecting extensions that are specific to Joomla 1.5. This list is no longer going to be supported in security fixes and developers for these extensions are no longer making patches. Update to at least Joomla 2.5 now! or change to WordPress. The question to ask is “what’s the cost of having my site suddenly go to an ‘under construction’ page?” What’s the monetary value? What’s the value of lost reputation? Take a serious look at your situation and try to come up with a reasonable number. Compare this with the cost of upgrading your site. If the numbers are close, it’s probably a good idea to start budgeting. If the cost is significantly higher than upgrading, find the budget now because it’s time to start planning!

The truth is you do need to upgrade to Joomla 2.5 and with all major security upgrades ending for Joomla 1.5 ending in September 2013, you should have upgraded by now.

Zedity 

A powerful and extremely easy to use design editor for WordPress.

The plugin is remarkably flexible and allows you to create page designs any way you want. It gives you complete design freedom with drag and drop functionality. This is a truly excellent design tool that will allow you to make each page on your blog completely unique. Quick to learn and easy to configure. Brighten up your posts and pages.

 

Image size

image size is importantSlow loading!

I was asked to look at a clients blog as it was taking 20 minutes to load. The front page had 3 posts with Jetpack slideshows with about 12 slides in each all 5000 px wide. Try to keep images around 700 wide. Load time can affect your search ranking and remember the broadband speed of your customers which if they are in the Highlands can be abysmal. If your camera has a “for web” setting use this. If you need to show a large image make a thumbnail with a link to the full size image.
