Skillset and Experience
Of course, when looking for a WordPress developer, you must make sure they have the proper skills. These include knowledge of:
- General WP plugin ecosystem
- Core upgrades
- Custom theme development
They should also have hands-on experience in modifying and designing the WordPress framework.
But keep in mind that you are hiring a website designer, so check out their skillset aside from WordPress skills. Ideally, a developer should have the skills for designing websites, as well as using image editing software, knowledge of UX/UI, website hosting techniques, and experience with conversion rate optimization.
