    The biggest problem I see is that it is a Wordpress site using about 14 plug-ins. Do you have any skills outside Wordpress? Any kind of coding skills? If so, what are they. What modifications have you made to make the design your own?

    The members with the most experience don't post often during the day (they are usually too busy) so you will likely get more valuable feedback this evening.

    What exactly is the problem with being a wordpress only agency? There are a few in Dublin here at the moment, we make themes from scratch and then upload them onto wordpress. We find our clients find this more valuable as they have more control over their websites content etc. Nice website by the way!

    The large amount of issues with Wordpress you will find here is just that, issues with Wordpress.

    While it may be convenient for you and/or your clients there are some problems that cause Wordpress to be frowned upon here. Thats not to say that we do not have people here who use it, nor am I saying that I will look down on you personally for using it. The problem that I have with Wordpress is primarily its bloat, causing slow load speeds. Coupled with the way it is so easy for someone to add plugin after plugin only adds to that. Especially when some(most) those plugins claim to do things they don't or come with way more code/features than needed. The security it has is also a huge concern for me.

    If you build themes from scratch I already have a little more respect for you. The amount of people we see come on here and ask for us to review their websites only to find a generic Wordpress theme has put a bad stigma on Wordpress here as well.

    Update: I didn't look at your site prior to commenting above, and being on my phone made it impossible for me to go and find the URL without deleting everything, so I will do that now.

    I had to translate it to english, so I cannot comment on the copy. I also can't day much about load speeds because of that as well. I found that when translating a website it takes my phone a long time no matter how fast it is without the translation. It took me close to 15seconds to load which is bad, but I will say thats the translator and not your site.

    I am on mobile like I said above, and so things may be different on other devices, but your dropdown menu doesn't work. I can navigate to any page except for those in the Services and Portfolio section. Those do nothing when clicked.

    Your calculator is a lot of spaces to fill out. I think the best thing you could do is create a contact form with as little fields as possible. People are lazy and if you let us be lazy then you may get more form submissions. I'd also make sure that you let them know that this is an estimation and not an exact quote, unless you have some amazing algorithm that can accurately quote a site. I find that unlikely as there are too many variables, far more than you ask on the form. Mind you I just glanced at it and the translator isn't very accurate either.

    It's not you, Vapr_Arts. It is slow. I don't know whether this is WordPress bloat, plugin bloat, inferior hosting, or a combination of the three...but it's definitely slow.

    https://developers.google.com/speed/...einmedia.nl%2F

    It's also a theme.

    http://www.kleinmedia.nl/beta/wp-con.../css/style.css

    The theme apparently came from here.

    Bones - The HTML5 Wordpress Starter Theme

    Therefore, this gets no further review from me, other than to say this is what the Dutch would call "onzin" (one of the few Dutch words I know in addition to "zoeken" and "vacature").

    Hi guys,

    Thank you for the honest feedback! Really appreciate it. I have also noticed that the website is loading waay too slow, this has to do with my server unfortunately .
    I'm the designer and my programmer does all the coding, we build static websites, custom CMS, Wordpress and Magento. We did use the bones theme for basic needs in the CSS but the rest has been build from scrap. I've already uploaded the website to another server which works like 10 times faster so that's what we'll be doing fast enough.

    Cheers guys!
