CC Food Travel is a popular Malaysian blog by Mei (@agentcikay). The blog has gone through several incarnations and needed a makeover and loading time optimization. However like many bloggers, Mei didn’t have the budget for a full redesign, so she turned to ClickWP for advice.
We advised her to select a ready-made premium theme from StudioPress to save costs*. Compare her site with the customized theme and the original – Magazine Theme by StudioPress. We then customized the theme to add on the top featured posts section. ClickWP also optimized her database and threw out a number of redundant plugins to reduce her server load and improve the blog’s loading time.
Her new site runs on the Genesis theme framework by StudioPress which provided a solid foundation to grow on and made it easy to add new features. StudioPress themes and Genesis also provide great SEO control, theme options galore and bulletproof security.
Mei, and most importantly her readers, love the new site. Here’s what Mei had to say about her experience:
David and ClickWP did a fantastic job customizing a WordPress theme for me. What impressed me most was how consistent they were with communication and how they understood what I was looking for, in a new theme. At one stage I received an email every day upgrading me on the status of my job, which was delivered very quickly.
My blog now loads faster and is more zippy. Readers have commented that it is easier to navigate. Not only that, ClickWP also provided documentation and tips to help me make my blog more efficient. I’ve used this service now for several blog related issues, and have nothing but good things to stay about it.
We’re so happy to have worked on Mei’s site. Do also check Mei’s other project - Cikipedia health and fitness blog.
