WordPress Maintenance, Repair and Security, for Entrepreneurs and Small Businesses

I help small business people with WordPress security and troubleshooting. I get your web sites working, and keep them working.

I’ll help you get clear what is the purpose of your site, so everything you write improves your business and what you do for your customers.

I’ll teach you how to maintain and update your website; or you can hire me to take care of your site while you write good content.

  • Adding “repeated patterns”, for example image, heading, paragraphs then button, all with one of your site’s background colors
  • How to set up page designers like Elementor or Divi, so most pages default to looking good
  • How to edit those few “special pages” to look great
  • What you can do in WordPress using only the Block Editor, for easiest editing of your content

Improve your Social Media and Search Engine Results

  • Control how FaceBook and Twitter mention each page of your site (and all other social media sites that follow those two standards);
  • Display the image and excerpt you specify whenever someone mentions any of your website pages.

Is there something about using your computer, or using WordPress, or making a web page, that is much more complicated than you know it should be?

Confusing? Frustrating? Too complex? Takes too much time?

I’ll show you how to do the basic things you need to do, even in technical topics, in a way that is clear and certain.

I’m a professional web site developer, WordPress developer, and database developer.

I’ve removed hacks from WordPress sites, and installed security to block most “drive-by hacking” or “brute force login” attacks. I recommend hosting companies that do their part (most do not!), keeping you safe from hackers. I keep my clients’ sites safe from all but the worlds worst hackers.

I’ve also worked in technical support for large companies. I am very good at finding actual solutions to people’s computer problems. I can get the best results out of the technical support team for your hosting company — so you won’t have to.

As I find answers to problems, I’ll keep posting them here, (or my more technical solutions site) so come back for more. I write the solutions that I had to look up or a client needed, whether today or I figured it out a while ago.

Need help getting your theme working the way you want? Do you know how to pick a secure, well-written theme? (Few themes are well written, and I can put the pictures and colors you love, into an excellent theme.)

Would you benefit from using WordPress in Multi-Site mode, to save you doing tedious administrative work for multiple sites? If you have several small sites, talking to specific people, you often wind up marketing better than with one combined site.

How important is it, to your business, that your WordPress is set up so it is much less likely to be hacked or get malware added to it?

How might you get information from many web sites into a database so you can use it? Would your clients like to have your information easier to find?

Please let me know what you need — I like finding answers to business people’s actual problems.
