One of my long term clients, I've done many small development tweaks to this site and Suzanne is also one of my maintenance clients for updates, backups and security monitoring.
trackday

trackdayclub.com.au

We have clients from all continents except Antarctica is one of my boasts, trackdayclub.com.au is one of my Australian clients. What should have been a simple plugin update turned into a bit of a nightmare when we ran into plugin compatibility issues with the WooCommerce setup.  Yvette was kind enough to say this about my services:
Neil is prompt, efficient, knowledgable and professional. Need your site looked after? .. this is the man! Thanks Neil, for the attention to detail, your assertiveness and all from afar! Couldn't be happier!

A challenging but simple sounding project, we had to recode a number of theme files and plugins to make this site run over https without errors, Judi Knight from the agency that built the site has this to say about us:
I have a boutique WordPress website development and marketing company and once we complete websites we usually have a contract to continue to maintain them. This is fine for the most part but there are things that are is hard for me to track down and fix. Neil just tackled one of my tech support conundrums by helping me get a clients site to read 100% https on all browsers. This is the kind of thing that I hate dealing with. I am definitely going to use Neil's services for any problem that pushes the limits of my technical prowess. It is good for me and my clients!

WP Dude is my go-to for every WordPress need - advice, help with my sites, quick fixes, and ongoing security and backup. I had looked for years for a similar service - affordable WordPress maintenance - and couldn't find what I needed. With Neil's team, they stay on top of keeping my site safe and are available to help when problems come up. They are also great with handling new site installs, customizations, and much more. I highly recommend them!
