Support » Everything else WordPress » How does a professional work with wordpress?

  • Hello there,

    I am an apprentice in a web design agency. The only colleague who used to make all the wordpress projects left shortly after I started my apprenticeship. So now I am supposed to replace this person and I have to do the wordpress projects alone.

    Im am struggling to find out how professional web developers are approaching a wordpress project.
    Imagine you are given a screendesign by a designer and are supposed to implement this as a wordpress theme for a customer. What does a professional do?
    – Buy an existing theme and make a child theme?
    – Make a theme yourself and then use a page builder plug-in?
    Until now, I have made the theme files myself, then installed Advanced Custom Fields Pro and used this to make custom blocks for the block editor. But I think this might not be the right approach (actually I have no idea). So my question is:

    What is your ‘wordpress-workflow’?

    Can someone give me some hints how I can achieve a more professional workflow? I feel like I’m on the wrong track with my ACF-Blocks tactic…

    I hope the question is comprehensible 😀 Many thanks in advance for any kind of information.

    Moved to Everything else WordPress, this is not an Developing with WordPress topic. Developing with WordPress is for code conversations as in “I tried function() and it did not work”. This topic is not that.

    This is not the site for this sort of topic. You don’t have a problem with WordPress, a add-on such as a theme or plugin, and you are not asking about code either.

    This is a support site and all of the topics are either for support, feedback in the form of a review or even about WordPress.

    I’m closing this topic for that reason. It’s an open ended asking for opinions topic and again, that’s not for here. This should be on a blog or perhaps one of these sites instead.

    https://www.reddit.com/r/Wordpress/
    https://www.facebook.com/groups/advancedwp/

    There are probably others but you may want to start there instead. I am now closing this topic to further comments.

    Edit: These are good questions you are asking and I do not want to discourage you. It’s just that this isn’t for this site and asking at those other places may be more useful for you.
