Web Site Design and Development

Our role as designers/consultants is to find a solution for our clients design/web site creation requirements within their budget.

JBCR is conversant in several web technologies but the majority of sites we design and develop are HTML and Wordpress CMS type websites. Though we are currently redisgning a site in Joomla.

HTML websites are edited offline and uploaded to your website using file transfer software. They require knowledge of HTML and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) so are most suitable for those who plan to have a web team look after site updates for them. Or if you know or plan on learning web development software.

Wordpress and other Content Management S3ystems (CMS) are edited online live using a web browser. They enable non-technical website owners to make text/content changes themselves or even manage the entire website with a little training from us.

What is a CMS?

CMS stands for 'content management system'. A content management system enables you to manage your website content online using a web browser with a 'WYSIWYG' visual editor, similar to what you use for creating an email.

Wordpress has been around for many years and has huge base of developers working on all aspects of it.
