Leightons is a proudly independent, family-owned and family run optician and hearing care provider. They had built their website with a custom WordPress template, using a variety of developers over the years in an attempt to keep it up-to-date. The multiple plugins and inconsistent backend code had made the website slow to load and difficult for users to navigate, whilst creating an environment that was complicated for us to develop going forward. To provide Leightons with a cost-effective solution, we suggested an incremental re-build of the website from the ground up, which would be implemented as and when legacy issues arose. Firstly, we analysed the hosting environment and carried out an initial clean up and optimisation of the server. Having reduced the space used by 60%, we then replicated the website to a staging server and created a platform to test our changes before setting them live.
