Effective Ways For How To Make Client-Proof
WordPress Sites
How long have you been designing websites? What
problem did you face post site development?
2
Was it the client or their associates who ruined
the functionality and performance of the
site? Today, we will have insight into these
topics in this blog. First of all, I want to let
you know that website designing is an art that
intakes a lot of time, effort, and
creativity. On investing so many things in bulk,
you get a product thats easy to use, easy to
navigate, and is as stunning as a supercar. You
will never want any person other than you to
interfere with its appearance, performance, or
even its features. Of course, because its the
pinnacle of your portfolio. Unfortunately,
clients are not the ones you can ask not to touch
your creation, right? They are the ones who
paid you for an awesome website that suits their
taste. Now, this is a crucial point from where
things take a turn. With your expertise and
advanced technologies, you have created a
pixel-perfect website and now that will become
your clients asset. Sure, thats the business
and you are obliged to do so but what you dont
like is clients making changes to the sensitive
parts of the website. Changes that affect the
efficiency and output of websites, leading to a
severely damaging situation.
3
I know thats disheartening seeing what you have
produced and what it has become. Having this in
mind, we have decided to put together a few tips
to build a client-proof website. Prior to
getting to work, I would like to share a small
chunk of information about a customer-driven web
design Los Angeles company - SFWP E xperts. So,
whats so special about it? This is truly a gem
of an agency that offers software development
and internet marketing services around the world
while maintaining the highest quality
standards. You can consult with them for a
variety of problems your site might be going
through like improper displays on smaller
screens, slow loading time, or terrible design.
They are up for all and can provide you with any
of the professional services like WordPress web
design and development, mobile app development,
search engine optimization, pay per click
advertising, online marketing or advertising in
any part of the world. With that wrapped, lets
move to the topic you came here for - how to make
client-proof websites. Top Tips To Build
Client-Proof WordPress Websites 1. Determine The
User Roles An easy way to keep a client from
changing the key setting of the site is to limit
their actions. This is where WordPress user roles
and capabilities come into the picture. Its
rather common to see that clients are given
administrator accounts to run and manage their
website which allows them to make almost any
number of changes.
4
See what they can do on getting access - activate
themes, install or uninstall plugins, change
aesthetic elements, and a whole lot more.
Speaking frankly, a curious user could damage
their site if they go overboard with
changes. However most of the time, its not
necessary for them to get this type of access to
perform regular tasks. Just so you know,
providing them with an Editor account is more
than sufficient to let them execute most content
management duties. They will be able to make
necessary edits but cant put their site into a
dangerous situation. For clients with Editor
accounts, themes, and plugin management are no
longer a viable option. This can prevent some of
the potential issues and the site wont need to
take a beating. Picking even lower account levels
to provide users with, limit their actions even
more by separating the content that they havent
created. Say, for example, keeping the homepage
protected from an unintended consequence. Whats
more, if someone needs a bit more facilities,
its a good idea to create a custom user role
and then handover the site to them. So, the
summary of the story is a client should have
access to administrator-level accounts in
exceptional cases only. However, you must take
note that a lower-level account is ideal for
daily site management. In case, someone is
constantly reminding you to look for a
professional designer to get their stellar site
built, refer them to us. Occupied with certified
designers, developers, and testers, our Los
Angeles web design company is the perfect agency
to partner with for all sorts of website needs.
All it takes is sharing your website requirements
and goals with us. Post that, its our team who
will be accountable to present you with an
awesome product. Thats not all, you can get in
touch with us for availing numerous services
like responsive web design and development,
landing page design

and development, online advertising and
promotion, SEO, and PPC, amongst others. 2.
Create Design Instructions For Content
Managers One of the common mistakes in the
design and development process is to create
elements that are expected to enhance the worth
of the website. No wonder, they are the ones
that cause problems over time. Consider a card
UI layout, for example, it displays the newer
blog posts on a site and there are multiple ways
out there you can build this type of
feature. What we can do in this is to set up
things in a particular way to allow clients to
write a post description through a custom-made
field. Thats a good feature to add but what if
they enter too many sentences in the slot? That
will exceed in size and get out of the
layout. Sure, you can insert an instruction
there explaining the post description field
should not contain more than X number of
characters. But, still, there are chances to go
something wrong without your prediction. And what
if even one person pays heed to your advice, the
other might not take it seriously. The point is
it isnt sustainable at all. Any better
solution? Yes, you can build in safeguards to
make things work or, even better, configure to
generate post descriptions through a template.
The former solution includes fixing a character
limit for the post description field since that
will make clients write copies without framing
too many sentences. Aside from this, the later
solution would be more effective that generates
an excerpt from the content. The advantage? This
will simply take away the decision making power
from the client's hands and put a description to
best use.
6
Either way, its important to take into
consideration what might go wrong down the road
when designing websites. Keeping that aside, if
you want to outsource content writing work for
your project, you must consider collaborating
with our Los Angeles web design company. We have
over a couple of imaginative copywriters who
write conversational content to engage readers
for a long time. To know what else can we do for
your business and how early can we make a
difference to your bottom line, visit our site.

SEO-friendly web design and development, website
maintenance and support, content creation,
content marketing, search engine optimization,
and pay per click advertising from us. 3. Limit
Options For Users If you have closely observed
WordPress websites you might be familiar with
the fact that some of its areas are a bit
difficult for making design decisions for
clients. Its because the CMS, themes, and
plugins offer users a myriad of different
choices to do certain tasks. To name a few, a
page builder plugin or the G utenberg block
editor are the excellent tools to change the
layout of pages. And though its good to have
such a feature, it is also seen as one of the
major drawbacks of the visually-oriented design
process. Conclusively, there are not many web
designers who can control here. However, there
is something you might be pleased to know that
some page builders allow you to deactivate the
features for specific user roles. Not just this,
you can also lock down block editor templates but
be informed that its not always a practical
option to go for.
7
One important and useful feature of Gutenberg
that you might not be aware of is its facility
to define custom color palettes. It is helpful in
making brand-suited choices for blocks that make
it completely stand out. The same is the case
with gradients and font sizes that can be edited
for a different look. So what you can do is
combine these customizations while disabling the
ability to choose beyond options that you have
set out and that will ensure users cant make
any necessary changes outside these parameters.
By doing this, you can prevent clients from
making ugly color combinations or tiny font
sizes. However, you must keep in mind that not
all WordPress software is so capable. If you are
not able to find any relevant settings for a
theme or plugin, give a look at the documents.
In case that doesnt work out, you should check
with the developer if there are any undocumented
tricks to control the authority of
users. Although most of the freelancers or
employed designers are good at their job, some
might not just live up to expectations. If the
project you are working on requires some
additional cosmetic changes that you are not
able to complete, we are the one who can aid you
with ease. With a bunch of design and
development experts at your disposal, we can help
you to increase the attention-grabbing ability
of your site. Major services our Los Angeles web
design company is known for offering in different
corners of the world include eCommerce web
design and development, UI and UX design,
website optimization, conversion rate
optimization, search engine o ptimization, and
email marketing. 4. Setup Automatic Site Backup
8
Any site you build needs to have a backup source.
And its important that you elaborate its
importance to your clients. At the same time make
sure you are not leaving your client to find
backup solutions themselves. Instead, provide
them the solution just when you hand over the
site to your client. As far as my experience
goes, automatic backups do a great job. It makes
sure the site will have a replica even if the
site collapses, taken control over by a hacker,
or damaged by the client himself. Just to let you
know, setting up a backup is dead simple and can
be done using a plugin. The only thing you need
to make sure about the plugin you are considering
is that it offers backups and site restoration.
Because a backup plugin that doesnt provide
these facilities is probably good for
nothing. Apart from what I have discussed, if
you have any questions or queries about backup
plugins, we can answer all. Professionals
deployed at our W ordpress developer
professionals have been dealing with website
related questions, problems and services for over

range of business-focused services such as

redesign and hosting, SEO, PPC, digital
marketing, social media management, and many
more. 5. Install A Security Plugin To protect
your site, you can use a security plugin that
resolves problems with a broad-brush or breaks
down your security solutions into smaller parts.
Despite this, what you must remember is that the
more people you deploy to work on your sites
backend, the more vulnerable your site will be
to serious attacks. To avoid getting into such a
situation, set up site backups and install
security plugins that limit the login attempts,
let you
9
block the IP addresses you want, and edit the
core theme files to reinforce the sites ability
to defend. Just for instance, iThemes Security
is the perfect security plugin that you can
choose for your site. In extension to this, you
can consider Sucuri Security for your use
either. Over To You The most important aspect
of safeguarding the design, functionality, and
information on your site is to plan ahead. Find
solutions for how your appealing design elements
will withstand your client's wishes and actions,
how you can limit their areas of authority, and
how your site can be returned back to its
previous state even if heavy changes are made.
Though you may not be able to stop an eager
client at every point, you can build and manage
a WordPress website that could avoid potential
issues in the future course of time. The final
result? Both of you and your client will get an
extra share of peace of mind. In case you need
