What is a Custom WordPress Theme?
The simple explanation is, instead of trying to fit your content into a template, I build WP Themes that fit your content.
I only build responsive mobile first designed sites. This site is a sample of how affordable great web design can be in Kelowna BC.
Reason # 1 for a Custom Theme
Imagine how easy it will be to update your own content on a template from your own custom theme! Simply go to the page you wish to edit in the administration area. Even the home page, (which on most frameworks is a complicated page to change) in my themes it is just like any other page, you can just change the custom field and your done. It is that easy!
WordPress is used more than any other content management system on the internet, by far. Almost 25% of all websites on the internet are WordPress and over half of all blogs and CMS are also. The numbers speak for themselves, and you too can join the winning team!
With a basic install you get a couple of plain themes that give you different styles so not every site looks the same. These themes are rather basic so large developers build Frameworks to add extra functionality and complexity. While still other developers build themes using these Frameworks. There are also some designers that will design child themes, which requires the parent theme and its’ Framework.

A brief outline of the process I use in Creating Your Site.
When I meet a client to discuss their website, I ask to see all of their site content and discuss what their future plans are. After listening to the client, I will layout a design based on the content. The theme uses unique templates for the pages, so the client just needs to update the content in the labelled fields. I can add as many custom fields on each custom page as required. This is so much easier than a standard WordPress site, especially for the home page, which often is the page needing most of the updates.
The Internet is a big part who I am and what I do. My second computer had a 386 processor and windows 3 had finally arrived! Yes, I am old and proud of it. Remember getting all excited when html 3.2 came out? I do and Lynn, my wife remembers it made at least me excited. Now I design easy to use websites using html 5, CSS3, Bootstrap 3 and Underscores with Wordpress. My other loves are photography and video productions.
I moved to beautiful Kelowna, BC from Regina Sask., some twenty years ago and now call Kelowna my home. In Regina I was a banker, hotel auditor and then moved on to Commercial Property Management.
Finding work in Kelowna was a struggle so I developed skills working in the computer field (A+, iNet+, CIW Master Designer, Google Anylitics, and Hootsuite certified). Worked in computer repair, sales and printer products. Now I’ve found my niche here in Kelowna, as a WordPress Developer.
I was installing sites built by other developers. Now I build my own. Based on the simple idea that clients want an easier and more productive way to update their site, so I started customthemes.ca
With the help of Photoshop and other Adobe products, I create stunning websites, photos and videos for my clients.
Are you looking for a website that you can really update your content yourself? Business owners and staff are just to busy to take on learning a complicated framework.
Using custom templates and custom fields the client just needs to login, select the page and edit the labelled field, click on save and they are done!
The hardest page to edit used to be the home page… which was also the page that needed the most editing. Now it is just like any other page, a snap to edit.
I am looking for a few good clients so I can build them the best websites ever, take beautiful pictures of their products, make videos and get their sites noticed using SEO practices that work through the long hull.
for sites needing to display a large number of products, because it looks great and is so easy to use!
