Custom WordPress Plugin
WordPress has thousands of free plugins available for download in the official repository that are open source. There are also some great premium plugins for sale for specific uses. You can add nearly any functionality you can think of to your website by using a WP plugin.
Clients usually come to us for a custom WordPress plugin quote when they have a specific need for functionality they can’t get in a free or premium plugin.
Usually our WP plugin development falls in one of these areas:
Free WordPress plugin enhancement
There are thousands of free open source plugin for WordPress available for download. Sometimes it’s missing just that one essential feature you need, or maybe it’s just broken or out of date (plugin conflict).
We specialize in enhancing existing plugins for your custom needs.
We have enhanced and customized both free and premium plugins for client projects such as:
- Contact forms: cforms, contact form 7, Gravity forms, Secure Contact Form

Another common request we get it to take an existing free plugin and then add functionality to it. Like submitting the contents of a contact form to Salesforce.com. Or using a related post plugin as a framework for a new plugin to show related ebay auctions or related events.
Fixing plugin conflicts
Often clients upgrade WordPress, their WP theme, or a plugin and something breaks or stops working. In the worst cases it can even break the live website. We can troubleshoot, fix, and maintain plugin problems including out of date plugins, jquery conflicts and issues, theme conflicts and issues, etc.
