I’ve always specialized in custom WordPress! development. I’m just a purist I guess. But after 15 years, WordPress’s authoring options have become undeniable. I’ve since coined the term “WordPress Composition” vs. development. This was my first composition site in a long time. It was clear that I needed to build up a robust list of must use plugins and themes. This is a growing list but I’m at the point now where, combined with some custom theme modifications, custom and affordable WordPress has become very cost effective.
