WordPress Web Designer & Web Developer

Tommy's PortraitHi there. I’m Tommy Oddo— an independent WordPress web designer and web developer who specializes in the creation of custom websites and ongoing web maintenance. And in case you’d like to know, I live and work in Austin, Texas.

Don’t Spin Your Wheels with a Template.

ThemeOddo FrameworkTrying to find the perfect pre-designed WordPress theme or website template? Good luck! Even if you do find that needle in a haystack, it’s likely to be bloated with features you’ll never use, which can slow down your website and make it more expensive for an experienced developer to modify. Instead, let me custom-build a new, high-quality, WordPress-powered website, to meet the specific needs of your business and target audience. All of my WordPress websites are now built on top of my ThemeOddo responsive framework— which means your website can look and work just as well on mobile devices as it does on a desktop computer.

Yes, I Do Website Tune-ups and Maintenance.

Ongoing Support and MaintenanceAfter I create your website, I can provide ongoing creative, web design, and web development services that complement your core strengths and empower you to self-manage your company’s website, if you so choose. In other words, I’ll be here to help— from one-on-one training and support; to creating interactive graphics and mobile-friendly animation; to taking care of  software updates, backups, and more, on an as-needed basis.

Disaster Prevention and Recovery for Your WordPress Website

Disaster Prevention and Recovery for Your WordPress Website

Yesterday afternoon I received a frantic call from a client I hadn’t heard from in 6 months. He left a voice message telling me that the website I designed and developed for his client— one that he had been “maintaining”— went down after he updated a few third-party plugins. Let’s take a look at how you can prevent this from happening to your WordPress website, and what I did to bring his website back to life. | Read Article–>
