Welcome to Old Castle Web Solutions!
My name is Paul Taylor. I have developed websites, using PHP, for many years, and have developed easy-to-use training programs to help you use these sites or develop your own ideas. I have trained people in the use of web development programs, HTML, MySQL, PHP and much more. When I lived in the UK, my skills were sufficiently in demand for me to be asked to travel widely to deliver my training courses. I trained a great many of the politicians and civil servants who work for the National Assembly for Wales.
Many small businesses and organizations want simple but elegant solutions, which they can manage themselves. For this reason, I have become very attracted to WordPress, for use as a Content Management System (CMS), because it is versatile and easy to use. WordPress is an Open Source system – that means it is owned by no one, developed by lots of volunteers and free to use. So you could easily develop your own site without paying someone like me! However, I can install it for you, add initial company or organizational information, and tweak it with the sort of themes and plugins that you might like. I can then train you in how to use the “backend”, so that the site will then be completely under your control.
I offer very reasonable packages for doing this sort of work, and I hope these services will be of benefit to small, especially part-time businesses and organizations that are working on a limited budget.
I can also use other Open Source systems if you wish. Bigger sites may wish to use the Joomla CMS. If you want a simple webshop (using easy systems, like PayPal), then OSCommerce might be for you. I can work with these systems and more.
