Joomla Help - Joomla Support

We provide Joomla support to major associations (Religious bodies - United Nations - European trade), Public Sector, large corporate sites and an array of SMEs. Our contracted CMS support services offer superb value for money and instant Joomla help, from speeding up a Joomla website to bespoke programming and fixing your security issues.

Daily client work with our ad hoc Joomla help services, typically include: resetting the administrator password, stopping duplicate page titles/URLs created from modules/sub menus, correctly formatting htaccess files to set expires headers and file caching, fixing broken templates and even fixing sites after an upgrade has gone wrong. Whatever your support requirements we can help.

Joomla Support Options

Our help and support services are available in two ways:

Option 1: Contracted Support services are designed for ongoing longer term client relationships. We are not a "quick in and out" company, we prefer to be with you for the long haul, and to reflect this, our contracted services are offered at a massive 33% discount. Find out more about our Joomla support contract.

Option 2: On Demand Help services are more usually useful to new customers who have a serious problem requiring immediate expert trouble-shooting assistance. Find out more about our Joomla help on demand.

Template Help - Support

Template Customisation

We strongly believe that purchasing an off the shelf Joomla template and customising its layout, design and colour pallet gives Joomla site owners the best value template option. Templates that have been built by professional developers and designed by professional designers, are a great foundation for your site. YES we can build you whatever you want, but to start from scratch and build out will cost twice the amount as customising an off the shelf template.

Template customisation is a great services for the client, when taking out a support contract as we will also be able to improve the way your site works on a technical basis: site speed, validation, page file size and much, much more.

Template Tweaks

If you require a change/addition to your current template and cannot do the work yourself, we are here to help. Contact us with your Joomla template tweak requirements (as detailed as possible) for a speedy response and quote.

If you are planing a new area of your site, you want a different look and feel but you only want to use one template. We can implement a different style, colour scheme and even layout to separate the new area from the rest of the site.

Component and Module Help - Support

Component and Module Customisation

We've customised Virtuemart to do purchase orders, automatically set your shipping cost dependent on products and country, create custom emails for administrators for each status along the payment to shipping process, strip out countries that clients do not ship to, etc, etc.

We've customised components such as Sobi2, DOCman, DT Register, Documents Indexer, Jevents, the list goes on and on.

We also regularly customise core Joomla modules to work in ways that they are not designed for i.e latest news module customised to work in conjunction with FJrelate to display a list of latest articles that have a keyword match and not from one category.

Component and Module (add-ons) Installation

Joomla is the best CMS in the world for ease of use, but sometimes setting up new add-ons can be difficult and time consuming. Dean Marshall Consultancy can take the stress, hassle and learning curve away from you, setting up add-ons correctly in the first place makes using them far easier, saves you time each time you add to them and gives you the effect you want. Ultimately saving you time and money in the long run.

Site build quality/maintenance is Google's latest drive and will continue to grow in relevance over the next two to three years. Your website has to be properly built and kept that way, expires headers, image types and file types set to cache.
