Websites that work

Your website is one of the most important tools for your business in today’s online world. Your website can make or break your business.

So you want to ensure your website is performing well and converting visitors into valuable clients.

Here are my top tips for creating a website that works.

Plan for success

I can’t tell you how many clients have come to me and said ‘I need a website’ but do not have a clear idea on what they are trying to achieve or the content they want to see. All they know is that they should have a website without much thought behind it.

Planning your website is an essential part of building a site. If you don’t plan, then you plan to fail. It is much easier to work out a basic site-map of your site rather than doing this as you go along.

This important step will not only save you time but also money. Web designers are able to give you a more accurate quote if you know what you want.

Image links not working in WordPress

I have been working on quite a lot of wordpress websites lately and have been finding it very frustrating that when I link an image to a particular page or website, the changes haven’t been taking effect.

I finally worked out what the issue is (and whilst really slow) it is actually fixing my problem.  WordPress seems to automatically add in a default link to the source of the image.  So when the image was clicked on you were taking to the image source.

I haven’t seen this in previous versions of wordpress and this seems to be happening only since moving to wordpress 3.1.

The manual way to fix the problem until the issue is resolved is to link your images as normal in your post, then manually update the link in the HTML editor.  You need to edit the image source and remove the

<a rel="attachment wp-att-3434" href

of the image and replace it with

<a href

Whilst not the best way to fix the problem it will help temporarily.
