“Our old site was content rich but poorly organized and extremely difficult to manage. Since our new website launched, we’ve seen months with a more than 400% year over year leap in organic traffic. We can now accurately track conversions and ROI, manage the site, and have proven a strong return for our investment on the project. The numbers speak for themselves. Such a dedicated team is hard to come by. Vizion went the extra mile to ensure we met crucial time lines for launch, working around the clock when necessary. We would not hesitate to recommend this company.”

Our WordPress Theme Design Process

Onboard

Our WordPress theme customization services begin with a discovery call, where you will speak with our team to help us become familiar with your company and discuss your specific business needs. We will explain our process and development methods and cover how we can both work together to meet the needs of your business. This involves developing actionable and measurable goals for your website, understanding specific design guidelines and integrations, selecting a WordPress theme, which elements need to be customized, and how these elements will support your overall marketing initiatives.

Concept

Vizion will review several WordPress themes to analyze the layout, appearance, functionality and customization options so it will match the goals of your site. Our team can help you with theme selection and produce concepts based on customizations of that theme. As well as incorporating your logo, branding and colors, it could include integrating other features from plugins like lead gen form submissions, interactive maps, embedded videos, or other custom elements.

Develop

The next stage of the custom WordPress design process is development, in which we take the design concepts and bring them to life. We will use development techniques to optimize page speed and verify that the theme customizations remain responsive and compatible with tablets and mobile devices. We will also include important technical features like schema markup code so search engines can better understand and index your site’s content. We complete all of the development on a separate development server and provide a staging server to review your new custom WordPress theme.

Quality Assurance (QA)

Before your custom WordPress site is launched, Vizion completes a quality assurance test to ensure the theme templates meet the development and SEO requirements. After passing QA testing, you can perform your own internal testing, such as user acceptance testing or other internal site reviews. We use the feedback from these tests to make necessary adjustments so we can all be confident your new custom WordPress site will perform as intended and offer an enjoyable user experience for visitors.

Launch

After your new WordPress website launches, we use a comprehensive post-launch checklist to review the site and confirm it’s functioning and performing as intended. This helps us verify the technical SEO items are still in place to support the continued success of your site.

How Can I Design a Custom WordPress Template?

In the most basic form, designing a WordPress template requires identifying a default template, copying the file, renaming it, and making the changes you’d like. You will need to be familiar with php, CSS, JavaScript, and general front-end web development principles. Let WordPress know this is a custom template, then save your custom file and activate the template.

Where Do Template Designs Live in WordPress?

To find template designs on WordPress, connect to your server and open the folder “/wp-content/themes.” You will find the “/twentythirteen” template folder, which contains the main WordPress template files, including stylesheet, header template, main index, sidebar template, and footer template.
