Services Provided

Templating, styling, WooCommerce features

IronGlove provided development services as a partnered subcontractor to modify and improve the PHP templating structure, improve styling, and integrate new features. We modified the default WooCommerce template and removed elements that were not needed for product catalogs, as well as integrated a custom lightbox feature for single product pages. This involved modifying and repurposing a freely available plugin while removing default behaviors of the native WooCommerce lightbox functionality. Final styles were applied to the modified plugin to match the client's expectations of look and feel. IronGlove also worked with Webship Solutions to add a custom video area and make numerous changes to page templates, product templates, and styling using CSS and Sass.

DONE RIGHT THE FIRST TIME

As a professional developer that focuses on providing services to other agencies, don't ask me to cut corners or put a band-aid on it. There's a right way and a wrong way to reprioritize work and speed up production time that doesn't involve creating problems for clients. If you want my help, we're going to do this ethically, correctly, and to standards.

REALISTIC PROJECT PLANNING

When I work with your agency, expect me to be a good listener, to be confident in what I do, and to never sugarcoat things for you. If something needs to be said for the sake of your reputation and the client's project, then expect to hear it from me first. We'll work together to come up with a realistic, professional plan for your clients that won't cause them pain.

RIGHT TOOL FOR THE RIGHT JOB

I don't believe in slamming out cheap templates, using stock settings, or working fast and cheap. It's not only your harming your business image as an agency, but it will destroy my reputation as a professional developer. While I'm more than happy to help you, don't ask me to do things that should be found on cheap offshore contractor sites.

COLLABORATIVE PARTNERSHIP

My goal is to work in unison with your agency as a contracted senior member of your team to augment the skills and expertise you don't have in-house. We'll need to work closely together and learn to trust one another. So expect a tight working relationship with professional pushback, and you'll need to be ready to grow from day one to be successful.
