WordPress Developers Nottingham

WordPress is one of the most versatile and popular content management systems. It is the perfect information delivery system for beginners and experts alike. With the addition of WooCommerce, it can easily become a powerhouse of eCommerce.

But it can get a bit bloated...

Because it caters to everyone, WordPress has many, many features that are often unused, and yet are included anyway. In addition, the plugin ecosystem seems to encourage users to add plugin after plugin, adding unnecessary and unused features and making the site load slowly - sacrificing the precious usability and core web vital scores.

Do you need custom functionality?

With expert WordPress knowledge, including page-builders such as Elementor and WPBakery/Visual Composer - we can create custom elements, widgets and code that means WordPress and WooCommerce can function exactly the way you want them to.

We’ve had our hooks in WordPress actions and filters for years, and know our way around most of the major plugins.

We regularly create custom themes to minimise the bloat that inevitably comes with one made for the mass market. We also create custom plugins that allow our customers simple controls for complicated functions, meaning we can maintain the user-friendliness you want while providing all the custom functionality you need.


WooCommerce is a must-have for online stores.

Services such as Shopify and Wix offer quick set-ups, but their general lack of distinction can seriously harm your ratings for the major search engines and ad networks.

WooCommerce allows for unique, highly customised stores that can operate in any way imaginable.


More plugins generally means a slower site. A lot of developers would just stick a caching plugin on and call it a day.

We will audit all of your plugins for speed and functionality, minimising the resources loaded to your clients and giving them a faster and more responsive experience.

Fix your WordPress Installation

Is your WordPress installation out of date, slow, or just not doing what you want it to? Let us have a look and see if we can put in place an efficient, high-performance installation stripped of all the unnecessary plugins and theme files that are bringing your site and your conversion rate down.

Many WordPress developers add plugin after plugin to do the smallest little tasks – not realising that each plugin comes with its own JavaScript files, CSS files, and back-end code that gets in the way of speedy, responsive websites and online shops. A good WordPress developer will be able to make sure that you have a healthy and secure plugin environment, and give you bespoke functionality without resorting to one-size-fits-all, overkill solutions.

Bespoke WordPress Themes

With too many themes to comfortably browse, it can be tempting to use one of the more popular options. If you are willing to get stuck in, you might even go for one of the more customisable themes, before realising how difficult it is to make it exactly how you want.

We can design a custom theme for your site, cutting out everything unnecessary and giving you customisation options on the back-end for the things you might want to change. As the themes are tailored to your business, they will be able to proudly display your branding and story without compromise.

Of course, they will be designed with your ideal audience in mind, and as everybody and their mum is on mobile these days, they will be designed to be perfectly responsive for mobile, tablet and desktop users.

I already have a theme that I love. I just don't like this bit...

No problem. We have worked around many themes and can quickly identify how to sort out any issues you are having. Whether you need custom post or page types, or default product settings, or even want to restrict access based on purchase history - we can help.

Custom Elementor Widgets

Elementor is a fantastic page builder for WordPress, and with each update it gets better. But if you want to achieve something a little different to everybody else, it can be frustrating finding the right plugin or widget settings - especially if you're on a budget or don't have the time to find the solution.

Think By Design can create your own, unique Elementor widgets to use wherever you like. If you want a shipping calculator for different sizes and weights on your product pages, or a custom engraving visualiser, we have your back. In fact, we love designing widgets for Elementor - and we're really good at it, too.
