Hey there! How are you?
Welcome to Tortoise IT

I am a freelance WordPress plugin and theme developer based in Crewe, Cheshire, UK. I’ve been at this for nearly 15 years now and you could say I know a thing or two about PHP and WordPress. I have extensive experience using the Divi Theme and write/sell my plugins on Elegant Marketplace. I’m also involved with a number of other projects and schemes ongoing.  This site is a blog primarily where people who want to know more can find out more about what I’m doing/releasing and get a taste for the sorts of things I’m capable of.

The windows update popup has lost me hours of work for the last time! Ok.. so that may be a little over the top, maybe minutes of work but it’s still irritating losing all of the windows I have spend days opening and lovingly arranging. After the umpteenth popup of the day I thought I…
