Neil quickly fixed a WordPress problem that was WAY over my head and was causing me serious grief. Since he is a WordPress expert, he had encountered my problem before. I highly recommend his services and will absolutely use him again if the need arises.
I highly recommend Neil. Nothing but good things to say about my experience with him: professional, responsive, direct, efficient. In addition to his obvious technical abilities, Neil also proved to be highly ethical in managing a change in specs. A great professional all around.
Neil at http://wpdude.com/ is the real deal. After hours in forums trying to work out how to fix my broken Wordpress site, in desperation I decided I needed expert help!
Wpdude.com provided a prompt, reasonable quote, efficient and bug-free billing, and got the job done quickly and with no fuss at all. I was delighted!
Running a business is hard enough as it is, without having to deal with useless support services and inpenetrable forums. Wpdude.com was a great discovery for me. Time saved, reassurance offered, excellent value for money! I'd definitely use them again!
After other dudes flaking out on me or only helping me half-way, a desperate google search led me to the WP Dude. Now I know what it's like to "have a guy" that I can rely on when I'm in over my head with Wordpress. I would recommend him in a heartbeat. He was prompt, professional, and saved my butt, plain and simple! Thanks, Neil!
Neil has been amazingly responsive in building up my rock climbing website: rockclimbs.org
I was starting the site from scratch with a unique USA map linked from all 50 states but realized I was in over my head.
Neil took over the project and seemed to know intuitively what I was looking for and was able to make it all work for far less money than I expected and with superb results.
Neil was very helpful in solving a problem with the indexing of images on our blog, we would highly recommend him!
I searched high and low for a trustworthy technical person that I could work with on my WordPress blog. Previously I was working with someone close by, but I always felt like they were really rushed, and often I didn’t feel like we accomplished everything I needed. I must admit I was a little reluctant to work with someone on another continent (I live in the US), but as it turns out, it was never an issue. I would highly recommend working with Neil. He is reliable, knowledgeable, patient and doesn’t make you feel stupid when you ask questions. Neil is the go to “dude” for any WordPress issues that you can’t figure out on your own.

Neil went above and beyond my expectations in getting my website theme upgraded. His quick turn-around time and communication was greatly appreciated. I would highly recommend his services to anyone who needs help with their WordPress websites.
I built my own wordpress website some years ago and am confident in maintaining it myself. However, every now and then I hit a problem that I can't resolve. When this happens it comes down to simple economics. Do I spend hours or days on forums etc trying to find a solution and loose time working or do I email Neil? The wp-dude service offers me a targeted problem solving solution when I need it. Neil always responds very quickly, sometimes immediately, He is clear in explaining how much it will cost, what has to be done and doesn't talk to me like I'm stupid. So, it's safe to say, I'm very pleased with the Neil's service and can recommend it highly.

Neil was prompt. Neil was courteous. Neil was as proficient with WordPress as he claimed – and he resolved a problem with my site that had stumped two other WordPress "experts"…plus, he made it look easy. Recommend him? I would INSIST on using this WordPress Dude for any challenges you might have. I'll definitely use him again
I would consider myself pretty handy at WordPress but WPDude have helped when things get a little too technical. Excellent communication and value – and mostly pleasing, they exceeded my expectations in what I thought was possible. Highly recommend.

"I was very pleased with the work which Neil Matthew's did for my website. He was very easy to work with, professional, and prompt in getting the job done!! I highly recommend him as a WordPress consultant." -Teresa Power, abcyogaforkids.com

Neil helped us saved our bacon on a recent transfer of our site from one server to another. This is why we will use him again:
· He is fast - often replying in minutes despite the constant feed of emails from this end.
· He is a master at what he does.
· His services fill the gap between our Wordpress knowledge and where we want to be.
· He is very patient.
· He has worked harder and longer than I think he thought he would have had to, but the price stayed the same.
· His price was fair and allows us to go back to him for more if need be without breaking the bank.
· He offers other courses..which once I have a spare moment I will take a look at!
In short, he has been one of those rare finds that makes you not want to write a testimonial in case too many other people find out about him…but that's not fair is it!! Thanks for your services Neil, much obliged!

Migrated! We have used Neil twice now and we are just so pleased to have someone we can totally trust our precious website baby with. As astrologers we know its not the best time to migrate a website during a Mercury retrograde, but we had no choice as our site was crashing everyday. Neil did a perfect job for us.
Being absolute dummies it was reassuring to have Neil there to advise on everything from start to finish. We had built up a monster site full of duplicates and redirects over the year, so in the move Neil gave us a good spring clean and now our site is faster than ever. We are so glad we found wpdude. Worth every penny.
When my Wordpress blog and my main website were hacked, WP Dude came to the rescue like a superhero. Within an hour he had everything looking normal again, and he worked over the weekend to find out how the hackers got in and bolster my security. Fast, courteous service - I can't recommend him enough!
Neil was incredibly helpful with the development of my site. After having a couple bad experiences with other developers Neil stepped in and within three business days had all of my website problems resolved. He also promptly responded to all of my questions. I will certainly use Neil again. -

Neil was very efficient and affable and even completed tasks that went beyond the scope of the project we commissioned him for. We will definitely keep Neil in mind for our next Wordpress coding task.
We recently discovered our WP site was victim to the pharma hack. Hundreds of pages
were infected. I am a long-time web guy and fairly handy with WP but this hack had me
stumped. Some online research led me to the WP Dude. Neil got the job done in a very
professional manner and payment was only requested after we were 100% satisfied with the
results. Highly recommended. Thanks WP Dude!
I have worked with other website based developers and been let down for many reasons,
but after giving two jobs to Neil, I am impressed by his professionalism and polished work ethic that I wish others in his industry would learn from.
I’ve turned to Neil for assistance several times now – sometimes desperately – and he always resolves my issue entirely.
Thus far, he has provided invaluable assistance to me in coding, security, marketing consulting and WordPress training, and I will be back for more.
I’m a big believer that efficiency leads to profitability, and am grateful Neil operates his business the same way.
He responds promptly, says what he’ll do to fix or help, then does what he said he’d do.
He is entirely trustworthy. This is exactly the kind of service you need, whenever you need it. (I also get a giggle knowing that my WordPress support comes from the one and only “WP Dude.”) I give Neil my highest recommendation.
I asked Neil to look at an WordPress security problem that has been bugging me for quite a while and needed some help with.
I was very impressed with the quick and professional help that I received and would not hesitate to recommend Neil to anyone needing help with their WordPress installation.
He even pointed out and installed an excellent security plugin that I hadn’t heard of, which I think is great customer service.
If I need any WordPress help, in the future, I will be contacting Neil again.
I’m a designer and have been building WordPress sites for a good while now.
I’m fairly competent at customising themes and tweaking php, but I’m definitely not a coder and I had a niggling php issue in a plugin that was quite beyond me.
The plugin publisher wasn’t very helpful and I’d run out of places to find help. When I came across the WPDudeI thought this was a perfect solution – a way of getting expert, targeted help as an when the need arises.
The response was super-fast, the issue was resolved expertly, the process was very smooth. And I found Neil helpful, personable and willing to share what he’d done so that I could add to my knowledge-bank.
What more can a girl ask for?
Although I have used WordPress to build a number of websites in the past, I recently discovered a problem where the layout of one of my latest projects was breaking when viewed in Firefox. After spending a frustrating afternoon trying to resolve the issue myself and getting nowhere, I decided to contact Neil. Besides fixing the problem promptly, he was a pleasure to work with. I would happily recommend Neil to anyone who needs some help with their site, and I am sure I will be using his services again in the future.
Neil does good work, is fast and responsive.
He understood my problem and fixed it.
I highly recommend him!

I don’t want to tell you about the wpdude because then he will get too busy -if I have a WP problem – he is now my gotoguy..he’s simply that good at what he does.
Our website was hacked.
It took a week for the hosting company to “scale it up” to the senior support staff and then two days to say our site was ‘all clear”.
Except it wasn’t – it was slow, buggy, but the hosting company didn’t want to help. The three other security and “WP” experts I googled, either didn’t get back to me or could not solve the problem.
WPDude found the problem and sorted it out in 24 hours….
I've used Neil's services twice now and have been very pleased, especially in comparison to other consultants I've used ( who were either incompetent/poor communicators/slow to respond, or exorbitantly priced.)
He is super fast, very reasonably priced, and always answers all my questions. I just had him move my hosting and improve the performance (loading time) of my site and wow! what a difference.
Can't say enough good things about him:)
