3. How do I update my Squarespace website?

Squarespace makes it easy to keep your site fresh. Just log in, head to the Pages panel, and select the page you want to edit. Add, remove, or tweak content blocks, change layouts, and update text and images. Just don’t forget to hit save before you exit.

We are running a Joomla website that was several versions down-level, our commercial server service had an issue during a conversion. and we were unable to get into the back-end of our site. Several 'Joomla experts' later it still wasn't fixed. We ran across Revibe Digital and Brett during a Google search and Brett told us he could help us. Brett was true to his word and our website was up and running again. We were amazed at how quickly he fixed the site, it's not easy when you are a half a world away to coordinate passwords and others parameters. Brett also treated us like we were family when it came to the billing for his work. I was blown away at how reasonable his charges were. If you are looking for an extremely competent Software Engineer that knows his product line then look no further. I wholeheartedly recommend you contact Brett at Revibe Digital no matter where in the world you reside. Thank you very much Brett.

Great work! We hired Revibe to finish up a Joomla project begun by another firm that was not going well. With a minimum of direction, they jumped in right away and took care of all outstanding tasks, exactly as we asked for. It was quite a thrill to watch a firm move so quickly and understand what was needed with only two emails of explanation. In addition, pricing was very fair. Our only regret is that we didn't start with Revibe to begin with. Highly recommended!

I am very impressed with Brett Ransley of Embed Limited. His knowledge is excellent and he is happy to impart his knowledge. He is friendly, very helpful and very professional. I made a commercial decision to leave a long association with our previous I.T. service provider and move over to Embed Limited. I am also impressed with the energy Brett brings and the value that he adds to our business. I am very happy and I have no hesitation at all to recommend Embed Limited.

If your website employs open-source software like Joomla, Magento, WordPress, Drupal, or any of the myriad alternatives, we can likely host your website without any complications. However, depending on the age of your website, we may need you to implement certain updates to enhance security for our servers. If your website uses proprietary software like Wix or Shopify, we are unable to host your website. But we do offer a service to rebuild your website using open-source software, providing you with the freedom to transfer your website wherever necessary.

We possess the capability to modify any aspect of your website, utilizing a range of techniques and tools. Assuming we have the requisite access to your website via FTP, cPanel, or SSH, and you're utilizing an open-source content management system like WordPress, Magento, Joomla, or Drupal, we should be able to make the desired changes without issue. However, the time required to make these changes can vary. Factors affecting this include the complexity of your website, the way previous developers constructed the site, and the scope of the change. If your website operates on software like Shopify, Wix, or similar platforms, our ability to make changes could be constrained by the limitations of these systems.

The timeframe to build a website varies greatly and there isn't a one-size-fits-all answer. The duration depends on several factors such as the complexity of the website, the features you wish to incorporate, your budget, and your personal skill set and experience. In general terms, building a website can span from a few days to a few months. The complexity of the website and the breadth of features desired will typically extend the time taken. However, following a well-structured and efficient development process can make the website-building journey both enjoyable and rewarding. In case you are operating under a tight deadline, we are flexible enough to rearrange our projects to accommodate your needs.

The cost of a website in New Zealand isn't fixed; it varies based on the website's complexity and the features incorporated. On average, a basic website may range between $1500 and $8000. More intricate websites could cost above $15,000, and comprehensive eCommerce sites might even exceed $100,000. Your website's final price tag also hinges on who is building it, the project timeline, the budget, and specific requirements. We offer a competitive price guarantee: if you present us with a quote from a competitor, we pledge to undercut it by 15%. Opting for pre-built templates, priority software, or a do-it-yourself approach can potentially save you time and money. However, each method has its drawbacks. We're here to guide you through these choices and determine the most efficient and beneficial route for your business.
