WordPress Plugins

Several of our plugins are available for free in the WordPress directory, plus we have a premium plugin available on this site. More are on the way.

Our Services


We specialize in WordPress sites. We have experience with page builders including Divi, Beaver Builder and WP Bakery. We also know the basic plugins that most sites need. Besides site setup, we build custom themes and plugins.


We work on WordPress/Woocomerce, Magento and custom eCommerce sites. Have something else? Ask us; we probably can work on it. We build and debug eCommerce websites. Also we can build themes, plugins and extensions for them.

Website Repair & Maintenance

We Fix Ugly Websites!
Do you have a website that does not look right or have the wrong info? Do you have a SquareSpace or Wix site that you want turned into a real website? We have seen some pretty bad sites. We can get your site cleaned up both the look and the HTML and Javascript code used to create the site.

If you website was hacked, we can clean it up or rebuild it. Having backup copies makes it easy, but we can still get the site fixed without them. We even also have recovered websites that have been deleted.

Web Applications

We can develop a custom solution for your needs. We believe in streamlined databases and code to keep your website running fast. We can build an interface to your database to suit your needs. It can have multiple users with multiple access levels.

Mobile Apps

We develop both Android and iOS apps. We can build both the app and an admin interface to support it. Currently we are using the Flutter framework to be able to minimize development time on multiple platform apps.

Software Development

We are also a software development company that builds mobile apps (Android and iOS) and Java programs. Our software programmers have experience in Java, JavaScript, PHP, SQL, C/C++ and Dart.

Video Editing

We do basic video editing when you don’t need a full production company.
