Transform Your Digital Business With 'corePHP' Services


CMS Development Services from 'corePHP' - Specializing in Drupal, Joomla and WordPress

Expert Developers of Drupal, Joomla and WordPress

Have us develop your next website or application using Drupal, Joomla or WordPress. 'corePHP's roots began with CMS development in 2001, creating custom CMS solutions. We took a leadership role in the Open Source CMS revolution, as our very own CEO Steven Pignataro was part of the original co-founding team of Joomla!  Today, 'corePHP' specializes in customization and advanced development for the world's leading open source platforms -- Drupal, Joomla and WordPress -- for the world's leading clients.

While we work in other CMS solutions, including other PHP, Java and .NET platform CMSs, these three are our platforms of choice to deliver outstanding results for our worldwide clients. We regularly sponsor and speak at international CMS conferences too. Hopefully we'll see you at a WordCamp, Joomla Day or DrupalCon event!

Use the Right CMS For the Job

Each CMS has its own unique DNA, and therefore, its own advantages for particular applications. WordPress usually fits best for blogging and publishing solutions, Joomla fits well for high-performance sites and intranets; and Drupal's strength in providing agile solutions for complex sites is unmatched. 'corePHP' specializes in PHP development, which covers all three of these world-class Content Management Systems.

Custom extensions, widgets, modules for Joomla, WordPress and Drupal

Can't Find What You Need On the CMS Directories?

Yeah, we hear that a lot. With over 80,000 plugins, modules, widgets and extensions combined on the the popular Joomla Extension Directory, the highly traveled Drupal Module Directory, or the king of all marketplaces, the famous WordPress Plugin Directory, you'd think there'd be just one that does what you need it to do, just for your business, wouldn't you?

It's funny how often that's just not the case. Search high and low, and a majority of the time you end up settling for less, especially on more complex apps and add-ons. Well, the good news is, 'corePHP' can create a custom component, plugin, module or widget, just for you. For example:

  • Custom payment gateway to accept additional payment methods on your storefront
  • Plugins & APIs to integrate with Marketo, Pardot, and other marketing automation solutions
  • Support module to offer live chat on your site
  • Salesforce integration with your website
  • Analytics tracking and analysis dashboard for your website or phone
  • Custom print-on-demand or pay-on-demand feature
  • E-mail sign-up form
  • The possibilities are endless!

Customizations Welcome.

Do you need a pre-existing Joomla, Drupal, or WordPress extension modified? We can customize a pre-existing solution to make it work just the way you need it to work. The choice is yours: custom or customization. Either way, your CMS-powered website will have the exact components it needs to function at peak performance! Contact 'corePHP' today to create a custom extension, or customize one you've already got.

Responsive themes and templates from 'corePHP'

Responsive Templates and Themes, Custom-Fitted For Your Business

We get a lot of new clients who come to us saying, "I've looked at hundreds of stock templates and themes, but none of them fit our company." Honestly, in most cases, it makes far more sense to have 'corePHP' create your template or theme specifically for you, rather than choose an off-the shelf design. It's responsive design, right from the start, with fewer headaches.

This is your business on the line, and your theme is your message. Stock templates often lack the features you really need, and the features that are built-in add up to a lot more bloat. That means your site will load a lot slower, and nobody wants that. So save yourself a lot of headaches, and have 'corePHP' create it right, right from the start.

Custom templates and themes from 'corePHP'

Why Go With a Custom Theme?

    • Unique marketing. Why look like everyone else? A custom theme is less expensive than you may think, to ensure your site won't look like anyone else's out there. Have us create responsive design that's unique to your business.
    • Far better SEO. A custom theme from 'corePHP' will be vastly superior to a stock template or theme. Factory-produced themes and templates are designed to sell to the mass audience, trying to please everyones' needs, versus satisfying your specific needs. Today, SEO is the name of the game, and 'corePHP' can design your theme and all its variations, to maximize SEO on every single page.
    • Flexibility. Your custom theme will be crafted to fit your business like a glove. It will move with you, grow with you, and allow you to make changes, without worrying about stock templates' regular updates, which oftentimes overwrite customizations you've made to your site's look, fit and feel. Plus, we can easily create variations and unique views that you just can't accomplish within the confines of a stock template or theme.
    • Stock themes are slow! You have a need for speed, if you want to keep your customers' attention, and gain vital SEO. Off the shelf themes and templates tend to have quite a bit of bloat to them, as the developers write code to fit every potential design scenario. Why suffer with speed bumps, SEO degradation and performance shortcomings, when you can cut the code down to what's important, and enhance your site's performance? Go with a custom theme from 'corePHP' and do it right!

Contact 'corePHP' today to discuss your custom template or theme.

 Database integration, data mapping and data liberation services from 'corePHP'

Fear of Data Migration Shouldn't Dictate Business Strategy (but it often does)

Marketers and IT professionals often agree, when it comes to the real and perceived pain of going through a data or content migration, they tend to avoid it at all costs.
