Update – http://beforesite.com is back up and the plugins are selling like hot cakes again! Thanks

Hi if you just got redirected here from beforesite.com website, don’t worry!

I am moving the website away from HostGator, due to a lot of database crashes, to a more reliable host (I hope) at DigitalOcean Dreamhost getFlywheel.

I am also changing the design, branding, licensing and shopping cart system. So nothing too major… *gulp*

I’ve Moved Greenville Web’s Office

Nope moved back to Overbrook!

Open Works was great but I need my quite space! 😉

If you want to stop by and meet me I have moved my office to 2 N. Main S, Suite 200,  Greenville, SC 29601.

It’s a great space down town Greenville SC. It’s a social open work space with a bunch of folks working in different fields, so it should be an adventure.

I am looking forward to meeting you and helping you on your next Web Project.

Don’t be shy and stop on by!

  • This is not an automated service.
  • Each website is assigned to a real flesh and blood WordPress developer.
  • If you need to talk to us we pick up the phone.


Google maps

Let us fix your Google Maps before they break on May 19th!

If you’re using the Google Maps JavaScript API v2 your maps will break on May 19th.

Please contact me at 864-735-8378 or use this form and I’ll fix your Google Map by upgrading it to the latest API

Google mapsFrom Google, Google Maps JavaScript v2 (Deprecated)

The Google Maps JavaScript API Version 2 has been officially deprecated as of May 19, 2010. The V2 API will continue to work until May 19, 2013. We encourage you to migrate your code to version 3 of the Maps JavaScript API.

The Google Maps API lets you embed Google Maps in your own web pages with JavaScript. The API provides a number of utilities for manipulating maps (just like on the http://maps.google.com web page) and adding content to the map through a variety of services, allowing you to create robust maps applications on your website.

The Maps API is a free service, available for any web site that is free to consumers. Please see the terms of use for more information.

To use the Maps API on an intranet or in a non-publicly accessible application, please check out Google Maps API for Business.

Sucuri comes free

Kudos for Greenville Web – the story of the $100 website

Hi Andrew,
Wow! I was impressed with the quality that you provided for such remarkable turn-around time, and the miniscule amount of time you needed to complete this project. In my failed attempt to produce my primitive version of this website, I read over 100 pages of instructions, completed tutorials on the internet, viewed “how-to-do-it” videos, skimmed two books, “published” (uploaded) each webpage countless times, and spent well over 40 hours failing to produce what you accomplished in minutes. Good for you (and of course, good for me to have found you)!

Steven Heller

overlook-wordpress-websiteSteven had called up the office because he was having a hard time building his website using Adobe Contribute. Greenville Web had an old article on building websites using Adobe Contribute and that’s how Steven found us.

After a quick consultation I could see that Contribute was not the right solution and about an hour after I had received the copy and images for Steven’s website I had him set up at WordPress.com with free hosting and a great looking website.

I don’t normally pat myself on the back but after reading what Steven wrote (above) I felt that I wanted to share it.

Give maybe a call at 864-735-8378 and maybe I can save you a lot of time and money too!

January started off to a bang

January started off to a bang, with the launch of two new WordPress websites for Bed and Breakfast clients.

The Fire Mountain Inn, located in Highlands NC and the Inn at Ellis River, located in Jackson NH.

Fire Mountain’s WordPress website is targeted at mobile web browsers and provides an alternative to the flash web pages.  Since it’s launch the mobile site has halved the mobile browser bounce rate*

* Bounce Rate: This is the rate of visitors that enter your site, and leave within the first 5 seconds (as calculated by Google Analytics) without viewing another page.

The Inn at Ellis River’s got a full website redesign with a custom WordPress theme and custom WordPress plugins to drive features like time sensitive packages and recipes.
