Comfy Cow WordPress Rebuild

Comfy Cow WordPress Rebuild

Sometimes we have to fix WordPress websites.

Now, before you go, “well, it is WordPress…”

No. It was not.

Over the last year, we’ve been approached by multiple WordPress users who were having difficulty using their websites.

Comfy Cow’s story was no different: out-of-date WordPress and theme versions, a bloated commercial theme, plugins conflicting with the theme and host, you name it.

But first things first, we put a fresh spin on the brand with a new brand guide.

Rebuilt WordPress Theme on Molecule

Our first clue to the severity of the website problem was errors on their lead gen form plugin.

So, as we do, our team began investigating.

We uncovered several outdated plugins, as well as an outdated version of WordPress. Most troublesome was the instability of the commercial WordPress theme that served as the site’s foundation.

After a full WordPress rebuild on Molecule, the website is now fully functional and scalable for Comfy Cow’s marketing and advertising needs.
