Customizations, Plugin Development, Troubleshooting and Fixes
Our team includes engineers, developers, designers, SEO specialists, content architects so we're able to take care of complex projects that require a wide range of skills. We have over 20 years of experience in website development, and we work almost exclusively on WordPress projects since 2010, and we are present on Codeable since 2015. We’ve built more than 300 WordPress websites over the years, also providing and managing hosting and ongoing support. We’ve specialized in advanced customizations of the backend and frontend of WordPress, and integrations with 3rd party services. We have a wide knowledge of existing free and commercial plugins, like WooComemrce, Advanced Custom Fields, Toolset, WPML, YITH plugins, etc, and we also develop custom plugins from scratch when necessary. We extensively use Genesis Theme Framework for theme development. We can take care of different kinds of tasks on existing sites, i.e. Speed Optimization, Security/Hardening, Data migration/conversion, etc. We also developed some free WordPress plugins that are available on the official WordPress plugin repository. The most popular is Black Studio TinyMCE Widget (https://wordpress.org/plugins/black-studio-tinymce-widget/), which counts more than 9.000.000 downloads with a 4.8/5 average rating. This plugin is a good representation of the way we work: it’s simple, clean, solve straightforwardly and cleverly a common problem, and it’s loved by the users. We are active members of the WordPress community, as WordCamp speakers, Meetup/WordCamp organizers, Polyglots and Core Contributors

Our web site was running slower than a turtle, thanks to bloated code and some issues that had gradually developed over time. Marco came in and whipped the code into shape, and restored the performance we had been missing! When the others developers who bid on our project all said “you’re in good hands with Marco,” that’s the highest compliment one could give.

It's more than an IT support. You fill to have a partner, which is a rare feeling.
