WordPress Customization Services I can vouch for

I’ve been working with WordPress for 10 years now and although it’s a powerful tool that allows you to do almost anything, there’s always some small detail you can’t customize or a feature that you can’t find in a plugin. That’s why WordPress customization services are needed.  I did a lot of customization services and still do once in a while, but I had the chance to work with some developers that are good and reliable that I can recommend. Here’s a list of the top WordPress Customization services I recommend:

1) WPKraken Team

I worked a couple of times with WPKraken, a reliable and trustworthy team of in-house WordPress experts with years of experience that can do everything, from the smallest task to bigger projects. They charge a fair $50 flat hourly fee and have a platform that makes it easy to describe your needs and get a quote. I can vouch for this team and I strongly recommend them. Some of the things they can do for you:

  • WordPress Theme and Plugin Installation
  • CSS/Visual Fixes
  • Security Improvements
  • Website Audit
  • Website Migration
  • Plugin Customizations
  • Theme Customizations
  • Logo Design

2) Envato Studio

Envato Studio is site in the same network of Envato Market, where I exclusively sell my plugins. So it isn’t a surprise that I would also recommend this service. This platform allows hand-picked freelancers to provide their services, that range from design, to development. The platform displays the ratings of the different service providers so you know what other users think of them. Prices start at $50 and these are some of the services you can find:

  • Plugin and Theme Instalations
  • Plugin and Theme Customizations
  • Server Migration
  • WordPress Multisite/Network instalation
  • SEO Services
  • Full WordPress Website Setup

How to add a World or Country Map to Wix

There are a lot of reasons why you might want to add a map to your Wix website. You might want to display where you’ve traveled, the locations of the different offices for your business or who to contact on a certain state or region.

I developed the Interactive Maps Generator script, that allows you to create interactive maps that you can embed on your Wix website without the need to upload any file. It generates the maps using the Google Geochart API, which generates vector maps that work on all modern browsers. The generator costs $16, comes with 6 month support if something is not working and you can generate as many maps as you want for your website. You can choose to display a world map or any country map, including the US divided by states. The map code generated by the script will also work on Squarespace and other website builders that allow you to embed javascript code.

Creating your Map

After you download the zip file from codecanyon with the Interactive Maps Generator, unzip it and open the index.html file. Make sure you unzip the file, because if you open the index file from within a zipped folder, the generator won’t work properly. Once you have the generator working, follow the instructions on screen. Here’s a quick youtube video going showing you how to do it.

You’ll be able to select which map to display, if you want to colour regions or add markers, set an action for the click events and customize the map colours. You might need to generate a Google API key, depending on the type of map you’re building.

Get the Embed Code

When your map is ready, you can copy the content of the ‘Javascript Embed Code’ textarea.

This is the code you’ll add to your Wix website.

Paste the embed code on your Wix website

When you’re editing the page where you want to add your map, you can click the¬†‘Add’ option on the left side of the Editor. Click on the option ‘More’ and select the ‘HTML Code’ option. When the window for the HTML settings display, select the ‘Code’ option and add the map code you previously copied to the text area.

You can read more information on how to add HTML code in the Wix support site.

Once you update the code, you should be able to see the map and interact with it when the page is published or in preview mode.

How to add a World Map to your Squarespace website

Squarespace is a popular solution for people who want to quickly create a website with quality design. It allows you to create a website easily, with their advanced builder.

The Interactive Maps Generator script that I developed a while back, allows you to generate maps using the Google Geochart API, that you can embed on your squarespace website. The script costs $16 and you can create as many maps as you want for your website.

Country maps are also available, like the map for the United States of America, divided by states, that you can give interaction to.

Create your Map

Once you have the script, unzip the file and open the index.html file on your browser. Make sure you unzip the file and not open it directly from inside the zipped file, the script won’t work this way. Once you have the generator working follow the onscreen instructions to create your map.

You’ll be able to select which kind of map to display and what interaction to have. You can either have a map and colour regions or add markers to different locations.

Get the Embed Code

Interactive Maps Generator Screen

Once your map is ready, you’ll just need to copy the content of the ‘Javascript Embed Code’ box to place it on your squarespace site. Make sure you select all the content of the box, so all the necessary code is copied.

Paste the Embed Code

In your squarespace website, go to the edit screen of the page where you want to place the map and click the ‘+’ button to add a content block (More information on how to add blocks). Select the ‘Embed’ option.

The embed screen will only show a field to add a URL, but you can click the < / > button to add the code directly. Once you click that button a new screen will display, with a bigger text area where you should place the code you copied from the generator.

Save your changes

Once you save these changes, you should see the map on your page. You now have a map on your squarespace website! You can get the map generator script on Envato Market. It will work on most modern browsers, no need to install any new software.
