The great thing about WordPress is that there is a huge, high-quality development community building excellent plugins. Frankly, it’s rare that we’d need to build a plugin ourselves – for most sites, there’s something you can get “off the shelf” that accomplishes almost all of your needs.
For our larger, more complex sites – such as major e-commerce retailers or large-scale content-driven sites – we love to crack open the hood and build custom solutions to meet our clients’ specific needs.
Examples of Custom Plugin Development Projects
- Creating advanced functionality for e-commerce sites, including customizations of existing functionality and the addition of totally new features.
- Integrating outside data and APIs into your WordPress site, or merging data from two separate plugins that already exist.
- Making wholesale changes to existing plugins or themes – for example, we’ve built custom plugins to accomplish major customizations of WooCommerce, bbPress, and the Genesis Framework.
The development of custom plugins often goes hand-in-hand with building a custom theme, and we’ll work with you over the long-term to manage, upgrade, and secure all your plugins as part of WordPress Assurance.
