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.

If you’re new to this site then a very big WELCOME to you and do have a look around. If you’ve got any questions or comments please use my contact form, hire me form, Facebook Group or if you’re into that human interaction thing then just pick up the phone and drop me a line!

So I’ve been experimenting with Elementor recently and noticed that a plugin I wrote for Divi could be ported over easily enough to offer similar functionality. The plugin for Divi is Divi form DB and is premium but the Elementor version is, cleverly named, Elementor Form DB. Cryptically the functionality is thus.. it stores contact form submissions…

Hi all… a little Saturday freebie for you all today. I had been asked by a client to see if I can get a cascading effect to work with a Divi site. So a section will show on your site and as you scroll it pins itself to the top of the screen.. then as…

So I use WooCommerce a lot.. those who read this site regularly will know that. I’ve been selling stuff for a long time via my own websites and also facilitating other people selling things via their own sites. One thing that I have never liked is the email notification of sale. I know it’s standard practice but…

As some of you may be aware, I have been working on an exciting new project called Divi Cloud for the last few weeks. It’s function was recently revealed to the community as a clever way to download and use layouts from a central library on a subscription type basis. Thinking about this on a…

I’ve been in this market a while now and I have to say I still am both pleased and frightened to read that other people have written reviews about my plugins. Each time I see a link I feel the need to read it all through and just pray that the news isn’t bad. On being told…

Wow.. it seems like all I’m doing is writing plugins these days.. why not eh! What a great way to pass an evening. This one was spurred on from an Elementor Pro teaser showing the ability to modify the section dividers.. those being where you have two or more sections on a page and you’d like…

I’ve finally launched my Divi Contact Form DB plugin. It’s a fantastic way of getting those submissions into the database.. for review and reply. NEVER lose a contact form submission again! What’s even better is that you can convert each submission into ANY other post type.. posts, testimonials, case studies.. anything at all! Watch the…

I’d like to announce a new couple of plugins as well as the major updates of my CPT Layout Injector, Woo Layout Injector and Taxonomy Injector plugins. The updated plugins feature a lot of minor changes, bug fixes, module changes/settings and the settings pages have been overhauled. The changelogs for each plugin is here: Woo…

Ladies and gents. A new plugin release from me. And yes… it’s another injector.. it completes the set. I have, today, released the cleverly named ‘Divi Search Injector’ plugin. This does what you’d expect. Allows you to, using the Divi Builder, build your search results template and present it in a nice consistent manner with…

I’ve been meaning to do this for a while now but I only just tonight got around to putting something basic together. Since Divi released their latest version which included a footer credits editor, the method I’d usually use to replace the copyright text in my sites has become a little overkill (Divi Layout Injector)! The…
