Website Time Frame Preliminary Design: 1-2 Weeks After we have discussed your web site needs and decide on a plan of action, we send you a quotation. A signed quotation and 50% deposit reserve your start date on our development schedule. Once your start date arrives, we begin working on the preliminary design for your web site including banners/ buttons (if any). This takes 1-2 weeks for us to complete. At this point, we will send you outlook of your website pages (and banners), so that you can review the preliminiary design for your site. Design Revisions: 2-3 Business Days to 1 Week Per Round (Rinse and Repeat) Once you’ve had a chance to look over the initial designs, you have the opportunity to provide feedback or request changes. Ideally you’ll get back to us in 1-2 business days, but we’ve had some clients take a week or more to get back to us. This is the type of thing that delays the project completion date. However, once you do get back to us with any revisions, the typical turnaround time for relatively simple changes is within 1 week. Major changes to the design or requests for an entirely new design concept will take 1-2 weeks. We continue this process of fine tuning the design until we have your approval. Development of Primary Jommla/ WordPress Theme Files: 1-2 Weeks Once we’ve received your approval on the design, we are able to move onto the development stage. This is where we take the design and create the XHTML, CSS and PHP code that make up the functional Joomla/ WordPress theme files. There is a core set of PHP files that make up the basic Joomla/ WordPress theme, including (but not limited to) the header, footer, content area, and sidebar, as well as regular page template. We create a demo installation of Joomla/ WordPress in our testing domain, so that you are able to view and interact with the theme files as they are being developed.

Website Time Frame Development of Interior Page Content: 1-4 Weeks This is where estimating a timeframe gets tricky, because the content and number of pages will vary greatly from site to site. The beauty of Jommla/ WordPress is that as a CMS (Content Management System), you are able to easily create all of the interior content pages yourself, without knowledge of HTML. However, if you prefer to hand off the entire web site to us, we will gladly add all of the interior pages for you (based on your provided content). The timeline for this phase varies greatly depending on the number of pages you are having us develop for you, and if you are prompt with providing us all of the content for the site. If you have a 1-10 page site, for example, we can have the interior pages completed within 2 weeks. On the other hand, a 25+ page web site will likely take closer to 3-4 weeks to complete. Launch of Web Site (CMS / Plugin Installation and Setup): 1 Week Once we have your approval on the theme files and any content pages we’ve created for you, we will send you a final invoice for the completed work. We do require final payment of the invoice before transferring everything from our testing domain to your server. Once we receive the balance, however, we immediately get to work installing a core set of essential plugins, the custom WordPress theme files, and any content pages that we created for you, over to your own web server. After the transfer is complete, we run through a final set of tests to be sure that everything is functional, and you are all set! This marks the official launch of your web site, making it “Live” for the viewing public.
