Tips for selecting a site developer

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 a website designer has told half-truths. This usually happens when the site owner’s 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 if you do not know the answers, you will know which ones they battle to answer or have no answer.

  1. What is the difference between CSS Flexbox and CSS Grid?
  2. Do you know how to use CPTs (Custom Post Types) with ACF (Advanced Custom Fields)?
  3. Do you know how the WordPress template hierarchy works?
  4. What is 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?
  9. What website builder will you use on WordPress and WooCommerce? Hint. Stay away from WP Bakery, Divi and Elementor.

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.
