Is your Wordpress site at risk?

Managing WordPress – Is your WordPress Site Vulnerable?

News – WordPress Risks: Over half the WordPress installations in the world are more than 3 major versions out of date.

Wordpress Versions - Half of the World's WordPress Installations are out of date!

WordPress is arguably the largest dynamic CMS platform available today and it shows no signs of slowing down. Combined with over 30,000 existing WordPress Plugins managing WordPress can be tricky for those with limited web design knowledge.

A great deal of our work is now producing WordPress sites like – firststepsderbyshire.co.uk

However should the role of the third party web designer stop once the site has been handed over?

We would argue, NOT!

Updating WordPress can be tricky, as can be adding content, especially if your business is not big enough to warrant hiring an in-house web designer.

Presently, we offer support contracts from as little as £360 per year to give you peace of mind, ensuring your website is up-to-date and working properly.

The contract doesn’t just cover software updates, we effectively act as your web designer for 2 hours every month (and let’s be fair if it slips a little over, we stay on it). We cover adding new content, reporting on site statistics and so much more.

If you’re interest about a website support contract read more here – Website Support Contracts in the East midlands and beyond.

Remember outdated software is the number one reason WordPress sites get hacked, but if you don’t know much about WordPress, how can you tell if you’re up to date?

Let us manage your site for you, a cheap cost effective method for ensuring your website is managed and support for the forthcoming year ahead.

£360 to ensure your business is appropriately represented on the Internet, this has to be so much cheaper than a web designer’s salary……….

Wow, 1100 hits and rising!

CoolPenguin is very proud to announce that yourhealthgroup.co.uk is now receiving over 1100 hits per month!

This shows the importance of good quality websites with regular updates.

CoolPenguin were exceptionally pleased to modernise Your Health’s online presence – we took their old website as shown here –

Your Health Ltd - old website

And created the website you see here –

Your Health Ltd - old website

The old site was not complete and despite its good lucks was not easy to use. Yourhealth asked us if we could do better and according to Zoe we did –

“Working with CoolPenguin Web Design has been a pleasure, we are very pleased with the website and the ongoing support they provide.”

A bit about the new website -

Users can access a wealth of information from the site including photos of their homes and surroundings, full descriptions of the services they provide and the Domiciliary Care Service provided by ENA Carecall Ltd.

They are passionate about care. Each of their Nursing and Residential Homes has a link to the CQC web site, and their latest report. There users can access information from the commission about all aspects of care, and the CQC inspector’s views and opinions of the services they provide.

Project Requirements

The Your Health site, while adequate, was static, small on the screen and outdated. The site needed many more pages, some animation and needed to be more engaging for the user

  • Clear branding and service message
  • A replacement site
  • Inclusion of animation but not Adobe Flash
  • Tabulated sub sections for each of the care homes
  • A care home selector on the home page
  • An email a resident feature
  • Excellent precedence, the site had to be clear, guiding the eye to the relevant areas of the site

We would be more than happy to work on another website like this, or create something similar for your business.

Eating Disorder Charity Exceeds 1100 hits per month

1100 Hits Per Month for FirstSteps

CoolPenguin is very proud to announce that firststepsderbyshire.co.uk is now receiving over 1100 hits per month!

This shows the importance of Eating Disorder Support in Derbyshire and beyond.

As Derby’s only eating disorder charity, Coolpenguin was very proud to work on the brand new First Steps website.

We found the staff at First Steps very welcoming and the facilities excellent. As with most projects we learned a great deal about their services to Derby’s community through the meetings we had and the information they provided.

If we had any concerns regarding another persons eating habits or changes to their physical appearance, we would not hesitate to recommend our friends and family to First Steps.

First Steps, not only cater for suffers themselves but, for those that have to support anyone suffering with an eating disorder.

As a charity First Steps relies on donations and of course need to raise their profile in Derby. So please visit the website like their facebook page and follow them on twitter. Remember one day someone you know may need their help, and I for one would gladly recommend them.

The website itself was design in WordPress. It is fully responsive (mobile ready), has a shop for training events for professionals, a calendar and of course a blog.

We would be more than happy to work on another charity website, or create something similar for your business.

CoolPenguin,
