Custom coding

It can be very expensive to custom code a site from scratch.  We can hugely reduce your costs by writing an app for WordPress if there are no plugins available that do what you’re looking for.  Because we work with freelancers who can be brought in for project-specific work, we can reduce our overheads and pass on those cost savings to our clients.

Custom coding WordPress has the advantage of being less expensive and much faster to implement than a fully coded solution, so if you have an unusual requirement, we can make it happen for you at a fraction of the usual price!

Custom coding Case Study

Buxton website design were approached to build, a service that would allow estate agents and private house owners to upload photographs of properties to be improved.  We used WordPress with Woocommerce to provide the eCommerce elements and then one of our talented freelancers wrote a custom app to allow images to be uploaded by users.

We identified user requirements, then wrote an image upload interface, see screenshot below, that allows users to upload images and select various services.

Once image upload and service selection is completed, users have the option to top up their ‘User wallet’ and pay directly on the site without involving a 3rd party payment gateway.

My Photo Genie

The MyPhotoGenie image upload interface, custom written WordPress App.

Since going live, we have added numerous improvements and changes to the app to streamline and optimise the user experience as the MPG team adapt and grow their business to meet the demands of their market.

Rich created, and has looked after the My Photo Genie website since we launched 18 months ago.  Our website looks great, and with Rich’s help we regularly change both the content and the images so that clients visiting our site see different content regularly.

With Rich’s help we have also added functions as our business has expanded. Simply, whenever we come up with an idea, Rich has found a way to incorporate it into our site. We now have a website that attracts, accepts and completes business 24 hours a day. Rich has always been on hand to help, us which has been extremely valuable to us. I cant recommend them highly enough.

Steve King –

After being very badly let down by another Buxton based website designer I luckily found Richard who managed to sort out my website and SAVE my business.

Since then Richard has subsequently built another amazing (and complex) website for us (, his patience and professionalism are simply unsurpassed.
