Not WordPress Themes. Full Blueprints.
PeakZebra brings you ready-to-rock WordPress starter sites.
Here are our two first blueprints, with more coming each week!
Store a library of videos, perhaps help for your customers, linkable (with limited authentication) from within your application, if you like.
The perfect site for running a free/premium newsletter. It’s Substack, but with a platform you own and without 10% being siphoned off the top of your revenues.
A PeakZebra site blueprint comes with things like user signup, payment, and subscription management already installed.
Stuff that does stuff…
When a user signs up on your newsletter site (to continue with that example), things happen, because tools like Paid Membership Pro are already loaded when you get your site.
When a great plugin does the job, we use it. When there’s no plugin, we supply our own.
The signup form in the screenshot above does things you don’t get with run-of-the-mill forms, like create subscriber user accounts and free-level memberships in Paid Memberships Pro. If your user pushes the slider over to choose the premium version of your newsletter, they’re sent to a full signup and payment form with their name and email address prefilled.
Oh, and it’s a WordPress “block,” so you can insert copies of this form wherever you need them on your site.
We’re adding new blueprints all the time.
Right now, we are getting started with just our fantastic newsletter blueprint. Which gives you a platform you own and control, rather than a service that skims a percentage off your revenue. And that can change its deal whenever it wants.
If a newsletter site’s not what you’re after, though, be in touch. We may have what you need already well in the works and we’d love to launch that new blueprint with you involved.
We facilitate change. If you want to make your own changes to your site, hey, that’s the WordPress idea.
But if not, we have a full queue system to handle your needs at a flat, controlled cost. Because we’re working on sites that where we built the originals, we’ve optimized our request fulfillment for speed and lower-than-agency costs.
We do harder stuff too.
We’ll always work with you if you need to order something that’s off the menu. We’ll talk through your needs, then put together a quote for the project that’s well in line with current WordPress development rates.
What can you modify? Here’s the menu…
- Change color in site palette
- Specific element color
- Button behavior
- Change post template
- General design change not otherwise listed
- Design image or element change
- Position adjustment
- Reorder elements on a page
- Design new page
- Change which meta displays for posts
- Change text on a page
- Change image
- Create new post from provided text
- Set post feature image
- Change sticky setting on post
- Change post meta, including categories
- Change categories
- Add new (approved) plugin
- Change plugin configuration setting
- Remove (nonessential) plugin
- Research available plugins for needed functionality
- Add or Delete Manager account
- Change session settings such as timeout
- Set up two-factor authentication (3rd-party fees may apply)
Custom development covers a lot of ground, but what’s covered within the request system are changes to applications built using PeakZebra blocks, with those changes including adding or removing fields from PeakZebra database tables or forms, changes in form design settings, and changing block settings. Other changes are entirely possible but will be handled as separately priced and managed projects.
Current average turnaround time for queued requests:
4:15 business hours.
Hi, I’m Robert…
Senior developer and founder of PeakZebra
PeakZebra is dedicated to helping you start off with a website that’s ready to go. It’s got the parts you need installed. It’s configured. It’s well designed. It’s got little touches of extra functionality built in using PeakZebra custom blocks. Because, yes, it’s done using blocks, the key part of the “new era” of WordPress. Blocks make sense for a lot of reasons, including that:
- They fit seamlessly into the normal content creation workflow
- They are inherently “drag-and-drop” — for a no-code experience
We host your site and we give you optional access to a change request queue for any further site work that you’d prefer not to do yourself.
