  1. The Society is most grateful to Dennis for the creation of our new website http://www.mufhsi.org and appreciate it was a donation of his services.

    His use of WordPress has now provided us a content management system to maintain a fresh up to date website. We are delighted with the result and following training by Dennis selected Committee members can have management rights and complete updates, create posts and send out newsletter to our membership.

    The follow up maintenance and support he is providing is excellent.

  2. Thanks to Dennis , Magnolia house had a website. It was after he and his family actually stayed at the property he asked me ,”why do you not have a website”?
    So it began . It was an advertising tool which was needed to help promote the holiday house. Thank you, Dennis, for setting it all up and trying to educate me!

    • Thanks Roselle for your comments, much appreciated. It’s been good working with you over the last 4 years, best wishes for the future and yes don’t forget those homework tasks I set you.

  3. I am very pleased to add this very positive comment to Dennis’s reviews.

    Put simply, Dennis has been our saviour. We needed to draw heavily on both his knowledge of website management and his flair, ideas and ability as a website designer. The extraordinary intensive effort he put in on a completely voluntary basis to provide the level of assistance we urgently needed deserves a medal.

    When I first approached Dennis our Gondwana Coast Fossil Walk website was in diabolical trouble. Our former website manager who had, without any authority taken it on herself to become “a reseller of our domain” had failed to warn our voluntary organization that our domain registration was about to expire. So without warning the website, our most important source of advertising, was no longer accessible. Because the summer is our peak season for Guided Fossil Walks, we desperately needed our website up and running.

    The near fatal damage caused by our previous website manager required a quick response. Faced with what many would consider daunting if not, insurmountable, problems, Dennis’s approach was like a breath of fresh air. First he spent time exploring the resources we had and was quickly able to define the scope of our problem. He set about calmly clearly and methodically explaining to me the sequence of steps needed to put our website back up on the net. My first task, under Dennis’ guidance, was to transfer the domain back to our volunteer organization (not a simple task to rid us of our unauthorised “reseller”) and re-register it to make it possible for him to start work on the site.

    As soon as this was achieved, I notified Dennis who immediately began re-building our website. Because of our urgent need, he worked for more than 12 hours straight to load the necessary 8,000 odd files and only quit to sleep at 3.00am. The following morning he persevered, completing the task to ensure we were up and running in time to take Christmas holiday season bookings.

    Now that the website has been operational for a few weeks, it is clear that Dennis’ version of our website is far better laid out, much more user friendly and, therefore more effective, than our previous original design. By setting it up using WordPress and offering training, he has also made it possible for 2 of our members to carry out edits and updates to our website. For us, this is a huge step forward over our original website established 5 years ago, because previously we had the inconvenience of having to put in a request to our former website designer/manager to make every simple change or calendar update for us.

    We were indeed fortunate to find someone with Dennis’s comprehensive skills who is also very easy to work with and is so accommodating. I couldn’t recommend him more highly.

  4. Hi Dennis,

    • Rob, only so pleased to have been able to help and much appreciated with Renee’s help we got you up and operating so quick. Thanks for the install of the new air-conditioner, we are very pleased. No doubt we’ll keep in touch.

      Cheers Dennis

  5. You set up http://www.yourdayyourway.com.au for me in 2009/2010 in HTML and I’ve been more than happy over the past 4 years. However when I was recently elected to the Board of my local RSL Sub-Branch and assumed responsibility for the Sub-Branch’s website and all social media, I discovered how difficult it was to update the Sub-Branch’s website in HTML and also to link the Sub-Branch to Facebook.

    After lengthy discussion with your goodself a few months ago, you suggested WordPress was more user friendly than HTML and you offered to move http://www.yourdayyourway.com.au across to WordPress. I am now blown away with the WordPress version of my website and cannot thank you enough. It’s so intuitive and so user-friendly. I am absolutely delighted with your suggestion, with what you did, and with the hours you spent with me on the phone. All my friends family and clients have commented upon the new WordPress site.

    As soon as you have some spare moments, I want you to change the RSL Sub-Branch’s website to WordPress. I highly recommend your services, Dennis.

    • Many thanks Geoff for your appreciation and am so glad your liking WordPress.

      Looking forward to assisting you with the RSL’s site transformation.

  6. Thanks so much for all your hard work in creating, and then re-creating our website after our web hosting company deleted our website files! You went way beyond our expectations in the time and effort you put in to our website – for both the original site and the now second edition. All your advice, teaching and assistance throughout this process has been invaluable in giving us the confidence to make changes and additions to the website as our business has evolved, and assisting in re-creating the website when it was lost/deleted. I would fully recommend Dennis’ website services to everyone, he has a wealth of knowledge and experience in this field, and provides excellent ongoing customer service and monitoring of the websites he has created. To the readers of this who have websites – always ensure you have a back-up copy of your site as web hosting companies can not be relied upon for this! Many, many thanks Dennis for your hard work and excellent advice.

    • Hi Renae,

      Great to think we got you back up with a new site so quick – wow is that not just the power of WordPress displayed perfectly: Here I was travelling in the USA, yet I was able to re-create your new website literally on the run, within a few days/nights….!!!

      Worst part was any ‘back-up’ copies of the original site, were at home as files in my PC & back-up drives, no use while I was in USA – NOW that just proves to me that I must recommend clients to take advantage of CLOUD storage. Yes it may mean a small cost to create the Cloud account, but a few are free – so this will now be the new priority.

      Thanks again for your comments, much appreciated – that’s what friends are for! Dennis

  7. Dennis has just completed our new smart phone friendly website for our tour business in Margaret River, WA. We found him really informative and thorough. We are totally reliable on this website for customer queries and bookings and his consistency and attention to detail has made this smooth sailing – thanks Dennis for all your hard work!

  8. Many thanks Dennis for designing the website for my massage business. You not only designed it but have enabled me to be in control of it, to refine it when I want & need to. I was very impressed with your professionalism and your ability to put computerspeak into simple language that even I could understand. Your patience with my lack of computer skills is much appreciated. I’ve had consistent online inquiries since the 1st day the site was up & am regularly changing/adding to it. Again, thanks Dennis

    • Neil, thanks for the feedback I am pleased your feeling so settled with WordPress and the site has proved such an immediate help to your business. Cheers Dennis

  9. Many thanks for Dennis for his great assistance and community spirit with assisting our club to get a website up and running. This has greatly increased visibility and enhanced communication of the club, helping both the club and the local community.
    In my dealings with Dennis he has exhibited great knowledge, skill and common sense business approach, in developing the website and I would recommend to anyone needing to develop a website presence !

  10. Two years after you set up my Sydney Celebrant site http://www.yourdayyourway.com.au/, I am still blown away by your creativity, your attention to detail, your flair and your ongoing advice. I returned from UK this morning after attending a wedding in Devon and, in this global village in which we now reside, there were several people there who had visited my site and were interested in my services. I am so grateful I chose you as my web designer, Dennis!

  11. Hi Dennis,

    I would highly recommend your web design to anyone needing to boost their business.
    Regards,

  13. Hi Dennis
    Just like to say what a great job you did with my website. Very user friendly and informative for my customers. We have seen a marked increase in online enquiries since it went live. The best part is that you showed me how to use wordpress and now I can manage and update the site when needed.
