I got this idea from my friend Zunaid. We always chatting about WordPress and the ecosystem around it. A growing concern for me and a problem is meeting and learning about website owners that have been told half truths by a website designer. This usually happens when the site owners expectations surpass what the web designer can accomplish. There are more reasons why a working relationship can fail.

So to assist new site owners or anyone looking for an experienced website designer and developer; here are a few questions to ask. Even as you do not know the answers yourself, you will know which ones they battle to answer or just have no answer.

  1. Do you understand the difference between CSS Flexbox and CSS Grid?
  2. Do you know how to use CPTs with ACF’s?
  3. Do you know how the WordPress template hierarchy works?
  4. Do you know the difference between id’s and classes?
  5. What are pseudo classes?
  6. What are HTML attributes used for?
  7. Are you able to code a WP hook?
  8. Do you know how to create a shortcode?

I hope this short tip helps in some way to assist website owners from falling prey to inexperienced designers.

I will expand on this blog in the future.
