Creating, or editing, a WordPress theme or plugin requires knowledge and skills in several different programming related languages. A knowledge of (X)HTML, CSS, PHP, jQuery, JavaScript, etc. may all be needed depending on the nature of the changes required.

  • Theme Modifications are changes directly related to a theme and its functionality. Most changes would be provided as a child theme of the existing active theme and would include its installation. Implementing theme changes as a child theme is best for future-proofing the changes and provides a method to insure the modifications are not overwritten by general updates to the original theme.
    1. Minor Changes: These changes would generally be one-time isolated modifications with minimal impact on the overall theme. They may include, for example, such things as: minor color changes; image replacement; or, text specifically displayed by the theme. Each “minor change” would be addressed on a case-by-case basis.
    2. Major Changes: These changes generally would require more time and a deeper review of the existing theme. They may include such things as additional template pages, wholesale changes to the theme design, or the update of several out-dated functions. Although these changes would also be addressed on a case-by-case scenario, they would also include a limited follow-up period as part of the service.
  • Plugin Modifications are changes directly related to a plugin and its functionality; and, are reviewed under similar criteria as theme modifications.
