About Me

My name is Mike, I live in Lincolnshire in the UK and I’ve been a website designer for 15 years (using WordPress for over 10 years). Over the years I have worked with various other designers and developers and occasionally work with them on projects to this day when needed.

About My Skills

I am most experienced with front end development and love to work in the following areas:

  • WordPress install and config
  • Theme install and customisation
  • Bespoke theme development
  • Plugin installation, configuration and customisation
  • WooCommerce(and extensions) installation and configuration
  • Converting PSD, AI, PNG, etc to WordPress themes
  • Monthly support and maintenance
  • Website fixes and cleanup after hacks
  • …and more

About My Experience

Speed is very important, if a website takes too long to load, visitors get bored and leave. I love squeezing every last bit of performance out of a website, I’ve helped lots of clients improve the speed of their website and reduce size and load time.

I also have a lot of experience with the following products and technologies:

Themes:

X Theme (and extensions), Avada, Divi and many more

Plugins:

Gravity Forms (and extensions), Contact Form 7, Yoast SEO, WooCommerce (and extensions), Divi Builder, Cornerstone (X Theme Builder), Visual Composer, and many more

Languages:

HTML, CSS, PHP, SQL, JavaScript/jQuery

About My Clients

La Montañosa Villas

I built a website for Steven’s main business and he was so happy with it that he wanted me to create this second website for him. It was built using OpenRealty and using a lot of custom HTML/CSS/PHP

LN4 Architectural Design

George is an architectural designer. His two WordPress websites were hacked and after invoicing issues with his host his account was terminated with an incomplete backup provided. I restored his websites as they were, cleaned up the hack and then hardened them to prevent it from happening again.

Greenstone Financial Planning

A few years ago, I was contacted by Martin, a graphic designer who had designed a website. He supplied Photoshop designs and was very clear that he wanted the final website to match the design exactly, it had to be pixel perfect.

Many more

There are some more examples of websites I’ve designed and built on my personal website (PLNT) including a few custom-built WordPress themes, some heavily customised themes and a few OpenRealty websites too.

Mike was fantastic — it's crazy, I worked with a $30/hr developer on UpWork that was really unresponsive and a lot slower/less experienced. The work still got done, but it was lower quality + took forever. I spent about as much overall on a few hours of Mike's time, and got very high-quality service AND the work got done super quickly. I think I learned a great lesson about "You get what you pay for" 😂

As is often the case with Codeable experts, they respond immediately regardless of the time zone. I am in NY but Mike was in the UK, GM+4, but despite the time difference he kept me informed regularly, established a plan, and discussed by concerns before he initiated any work. This is an important ingredient to any successful collaboration for a project like the one we worked on together. Meanwhile, I kept Mike informed about the changing circumstances on my end and he adjusted accordingly. I can't thank him enough for the results he obtained in speeding up our site and avoiding the conditions that led to my having to contact Codeable in the first place!

Mike was excellent at dealing with our website speed optimisation project. He responded quickly, gave full and detailed information, explained everything well and finished the job by giving several recommendations for improving things further. The job was smooth and Mike very helpful. Will use again.

I was looking for a person with professionell knowledge about WordPress Website Migration, and I was fortunate to find Mike. He worked with me to customise my clients layout into a new template in WordPress. Mike was very communicative and extremely patient with me right from the start of the project. I must have annoyed him more than once over the two months for this work. My clients constantly had new "ideas" and these should be implemented immediately - what else. Mike helped me with a lot of patience to work in the template myself. Meanwhile most of the project is done and the WordPress website is online already. I will definitely do the next project with him again. This time, without constant changes by my client, therefore as efficiently as possible. Mike, I am very grateful to you - THANKS!

Project rating:

Mike is an incredibly talented developer! I drew out what I wanted in Illustrator and he literally converted the design into to the exact website I wanted! He was super accommodating and responsive with all my questions over messenger even though we were working on a huge time difference. Couldn't recommend him enough! :)

Project rating:

Mark is professional. He is not looking for a quick fix or does not even promise an outcome until he has analyzed the site. That's how good engineers work. He is a problem solver who looks at the problem and then discusses with the client how to solve the problem. He is also very responsive and clear in his communication. Outcome - my front-end site optimization got much better without breaking anything on the site. We get what we pay for and that is absolutely true about Mike. I look forward to working with him again in the future.

Project rating:

Mike took the time to understand what I was looking for, even though I often wasn't very specific. He asked all the right questions and made all the adjustments I asked for. He was always extremely responsive and thorough in his communication. Mike demonstrated a ton of knowledge about WordPress development, recommended plugins, speed optimizations, SEO, and hosting. I was looking for a partner in this development effort, and I was fortunate to work with Mike. The bottom line is that as a result of the work from Mike, I have a site that meets everything I was asking for. It looks better, it's faster, and it's easier to maintain. It will help me grow my business.
