Maintenance Plan

From: C$129.00 / month

Keep your site in top notch condition by maintaining it with SAU/CAL.  Our goal is that when you login to WP Admin, all you see is green for plugins and theme updates. We take care of testing and updates, so you can focus on running your business.

Statement of Work: WordPress Monthly Maintenance Plan


In summary, the maintenance plan is so you’re at the point where you login and see 0 updates for plugins and/or themes. Before being enrolled we’d need to do a small audit to confirm a few things. Mostly; No core files are edited and the child theme is structured properly.

Here is a sample doc we use to get started:

The maintenance plan includes:
– Keeping an inventory of plugins
– Monthly updates of plugins and WordPress core
– Unit testing for high priority plugins

As shown on the document, high priority plugins are identified. During an update, the beta release is installed on a staging server and is tested. This ensures there are no conflicts and the site is okay.

For you: it means no longer having to think about updates, ever.

In the event that a plugin is not compatible, we seek a quick fix, or in the worst case, deploy a backup plugin. If neither of these options work, the update is delayed, and/or new options are explored.

At times, during a major upgrade, eg: WooCommerce 2.8 to 3.0, or WP 4.1.2 to 4.2, a new Statement of Work may be required, that is not included in the plan. This would also apply if a plugin developer has abandoned shop. You will be notified in advance.

Any smaller updates, 4.1.2 to 4.1.3 are all included.
