I am Milan, a WordPress developer from Serbia. I started with WordPress in 2007, creating few free plugins. My early plugins over time grew in popularity, and I started working as a freelancer on WordPress based projects. Since 2009 I am working exclusively with WordPress.
WordPress allowed me to use all my knowledge of PHP and database analytics, which pushed me to learn more and evolve as a developer, to incorporate new PHP features into my work. It also enabled me to work on many amazing plugins and help tens of thousands of WordPress users make their websites better, secure, or faster.
I joined Codeable because I wanted to challenge myself working on new projects and be a part of the community of best WordPress developers from the whole world.
I have created 50+ premium/commercial plugins sold through my website Dev4Press.com and over at CodeCanyon.net, 20+ free plugins available at WordPress.org (not all of them are still available).
Over the past 12 years, I have developed over 100 plugins for various clients, from simple single-feature plugins to complex plugins used to drive whole websites in many cases along with the custom-developed themes.

Plugins for bbPress
bbPress is a free plugin for WordPress for adding forums into a WordPress powered website. It is a simple plugin, but a plugin with great potential for customization.
Since 2012, I have developed many plugins for expanding the bbPress powered forums with new features usually found in the specialized standalone forum software. I have developed a plugin to completely change the way the forum looks, using modern responsive design and giving a lot of power to end users to configure the forums through WordPress Customizer.
Dev4Press is my main project since 2009, and it is currently home to over 20 premium and free plugins for WordPress covering a wide range of features – bbPress powered forums, ratings, security, website administration, and more.
In the past 10+ years, countless websites used Dev4Press plugins for WordPress and bbPress. My plugins helped a lot of WordPress website owners, and you can check some of their testimonials here: dev4press.com/testimonials.
In 2020, I launched a free WordPress plugin for debugging and tracking WordPress installations called DebugPress. The plugin uses popup to display gathered information, and it has support for AJAX debugging, HTTP requests debug, and much more.
bbPress Help Club
In 2018, I launched the bbPress Help Club website – a free resource of articles, tutorials, and Q&A types of posts, all related to bbPress. In my free time, I am trying to help anyone running WordPress forums using bbPress with practical advice, configuration tips, and code samples.
We had Milan optimize one of our sites. We went from an SEMrush score of 60 to an 84+ pretty quickly. He was very helpful and knowledgeable.
Milan over-delivered on quick, responsive service, and he saved my ad campaign from certain failure with his speed optimizations. 11/10 - great value and highly recommend!
Milan was immediately relevant and helpful. We have some prep work to finish and then we intend to hire him for a project that implements some of the recommendations that he made for our sites' performance.
Milan is great to work with and is very diligent about making sure we're on the same page before starting the project.
Although the technician did what he could, he did not meet my expectations, I appreciate his effort.
Milan was excellent in his advice and insights. Easy to follow solutions
