WordPress Development

Custom development on the world’s best-loved CMS

WordPress powers around a third of all websites on the internet, and with good reason. We take its robust base and build completely custom themes so you get the best of both words – a bespoke designed site with a solid CMS.

Why WordPress?

WordPress is open source software, which means it’s free to use and edit. You don’t pay a license fee, so you can use it forever for free. It’s also expertly coded, fast loading, and incredibly easy to use. We can build any type of site on it – from brochure style business websites to membership and eCommerce applications.

Why custom development?

There are thousands of free and low-cost ready-made themes for WordPress you can have up and running yourself in a short space of time, and for some people this is a great option. They do, however, have their limitations when it comes to creating sites fit for business. Aesthetically speaking it’s extremely hard to find a pre-made theme that will adapt to your branding, and it’s often easy to tell when someone has used one because it looks generic. Many people also find that they’re trying to write content to fit the blocks allocated to them, rather than the design adapting to suit their needs. On a technical level they are also often bloated with unnecessary code and features that weigh your site down and go out of date causing security holes.

When we build a custom WordPress theme we start from scratch each time, adding only what is necessary and useful. All of the design-work is completely bespoke and tailored to your branding, so it is exactly the same approach we would take with a static coded site only with the flexibility of having a CMS available. Because we’re coding everything ourselves there’s very little that can’t be done, although we usually draw the line at marauding unicorns across the bottom of the screen.

What our customers say:

I would highly recommend Hut Six Digital for your website implementation. Jo has been fantastic to work with and has exceptional knowledge in her field. She is friendly, reliable and professional, which has resulted in our fantastic new website launch. Her training was clear and concise, and I know she will be on the end of the phone or email should I need her for a little refresh. She has enabled us to take full control of our new website, which was something other companies have been unable to offer. Excellent value for money too!

Christina Canning (SMS Alarms Ltd, Thatcham)

Jo has been personable and efficient in setting up my website. She did a great job of understanding what I wanted and providing guidance from her wealth of experience. She has explained things in a non-technical way and has been very responsive, patient and flexible in working with me. In short, Jo is great value for money and easy to work with.

Vanessa Rhone (Venus Works, Oxford)

Excellent, efficient service from Jo. Highly recommend.

Xan Rice (Journalist, Oxford)

I am not exactly a technophobe but due to previous experiences of pressing buttons that I have no business pressing I have shied away from doing thing to update or improve my site. I have called on Jo Cox’s expertise several times and she is always quick, efficient and gets you back on track whilst also calming you down. I can honestly say that there is no one else I would call on in an emergency to sort out problems with my website. I have never had a bad experience with Jo’s services or with Jo as the service provider.

Lisa Bentley (Writer, Liverpool)

Jo has been amazing. Through 1-2-1 training sessions she has helped me to make significant improvements to my website functionality. This has not only been cost effective but it also has empowered me to use the skills that I have gained to edit my website myself in the future. She has simplified what I thought would be tricky tasks. I will definitely continue to work with her in the future and I couldn’t recommend her highly enough.

Felicity Wood (Yoga Instructor, Bicester)

Jo took my simple brief outline of what I wanted and turned it into everything I wanted and more. Jo was very professional, efficient and she was patient and understanding with the fact that I was not knowledgeable about building websites or what’s involved. By the end of it Jo had given me and my team a training session around how to manage the website. I would highly recommend her!

Sharon Mulholland (Sandcastle Mortgages, Kidlington)

Jo was completely fantastic! I’d been struggling to make a WordPress blog design work and was completely stumped. I made an enquiry to Jo about some help, and she replied within 24 hours. It was easy to agree on a price for the things that needed to be done, and she had fixed everything within 48 hours of the original enquiry. I had thought my problem was too small for someone to help with it, but I was pleasantly surprised that Jo was happy to sort out the small issues with my site for an extremely reasonable fee. Throughout the process, Jo was efficient, effective and stayed in regular communication. She answered all of my questions, even the really idiotic ones, and nothing was too much trouble. The entire experience was great and I would recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone who needs help with a website project – big or small. She is, in short, superb at what she does.

Imogen Goold (Blogger, Oxfordshire)

I wish I had found Jo earlier. We wanted to progress from making simple text edits to getting more out of the CMS. After a very enjoyable training session, we can now design new pages and keep the website organised. Excellent.
