Helpful Site Updates

Updates and Changes Beyond

After a considerable amount of work re-configuring things, sorting updates and testing, we have our sites to a point we feel happy with. Therefore it’s time to remove the “We’re Moving Host” pinned post. Everything is now working better than before the migration.

We have also introduced SSL. Plus the new server offers things like HTTP/2 and many other features. Essentially they enhance the caching and how the browser(s) reads data, decreasing website load time, while providing better security.

We have since found a solution to the SSL issue we had with our contact form and appointment scheduling system. While it’s potentially a temporary solution, it’s working as it should, functioning perfectly via SSL.

Unfortunately we are not going to have this site to the point we wanted by the intended date. This is due to some unforeseen issues with a couple of plugins causing issues with respect to utilising SSL. We will need to wait to hear from these providers and find a solution.

This notice will stay here until everything’s set up, tested and confirmed working on the new host. We expect to take down this notice before the end of the month, being the 31st of January 2017 28th of February 2017.

8th of January, 2017

The server migration finished ahead of schedule on the 1st of January 2017. There was little to no downtime.

However as of today we’re working on changing our server layout in effort to find a way to configure things more efficiently with the new hosting account features.

During the following fortnight or thereabouts this site (and others) may go offline for a short time while we test changes. We apologise for any inconvenience it may cause.

Our contact and booking system’s fixed, excluding SSL. The problem was a minor styling related issue impacting the contact form due to a provider update issue.

21st of November, 2016

Please note that over the Christmas period we’re moving to a better host.

We’ve used our original hosting provider since well before incorporating Double D Works Ltd in 2008. We feel moving host marks a time in our business of significant improvement. This change has come about from our progression resulting in outgrowing the previous service.

We expect our website(s) should only be out for a few hours and emails to go out for no more than 72 hours. It could be less than this however you would be best to expect them being out of action for a few days. If you need to contact us during this period, then please phone us on 0800 339 6757.

We expect to carry out this account migration at some point from the 24th of December 2016 on. We plan to have everything completed by the 2nd of January 2017.

2nd of October, 2016

Today we released important updates to our bookkeeping services page.

Our bookkeeping services come in three packs. We hope the additions are helpful in understanding what custom bookkeeping services we offer to suit your business needs.

Additional updates are coming. We will however potentially start such improvements once we’ve moved host. We hope you find them beneficial.

29th of July, 2016

We’ve made changes introducing some new content. We also made updates to our site layout to improve user experience on desktop and mobile browsers.

We started with adding another column of links to the footer. Other than the obvious, this creates a more consistent layout across various display resolutions. The right sidebar increased from 25% to 30%. This allows the twitter feed and other content to fit better along with any future additions.

Other updates applied to the site include the new Team Profiles page. Here you will find information about Team Account Wise such as their email addresses, phone numbers, plus some personal interests and the like.

Updates to the theme included a few nice aspect improvements and more are coming. Want one of the best, affordable Premium WordPress themes? We challenge you to find a better one than this. If you find this level of product versus support, we’ll be more than a little surprised.

The Account Wise site has undergone alterations related to Search Engine Optimisation to increase organic search engine traffic. Both visible and hidden aspects of the site have changed. A good part of the text has undergone a rewrite.

After altering the main pages and two-thirds of the blog content we’ve gone live with the changes to test the impact they have on Google and other search engines. Further changes will take place as the site evolves and we look for more organic traffic.

During the last month or so we introduced an improved IRD Tax Agent Authority agreement and the New Staff Member Pack in downloads, plus the floating navigation menu and the back to top button that appears in the lower right corner when you scroll down the page, along with our new company Terms and Conditions.

Among the new visible features released today are breadcrumbs. They help you and search engines understand how the sites laid out. Therefore its easier to find your way home (or wherever), much like Hansel and Gretel intended to do.

Our HTML Sitemap tree structure provides this information in another format. The breadcrumb and sitemap feature will become more and more useful as contents added.

You may also notice our blogs laid out differently putting more content on the home page. We believe the contents easily accessible and more user-friendly. When you click a read more link expect to get sent to the exact location you left off from. We did this so you don’t have to find where you were to seamlessly continue reading on. Related posts also now display below each post so you can find associated content with ease.

For the Geeks; the read more jump is in part handled by CSS to alter the core function allowing for the depth of the floating menu on this awesome theme however this CSS will likely be swapped out for a JavaScript solution to further improve this default action given JavaScript can make changes automatically according to activated theme functions providing a consistent user experience. If you believe this jump is not working as you would expect it too, please let us know.

6th of January, 2015

With the New Year comes a fresh new look, site updates and approach for 2015 and beyond.

The changes will aid us in sharing information with you, essential or otherwise that can potentially simplify management aspects of your business, account wise.

Accurate accounting is critical to anyone seeking to stay in business and succeed to their full potential.

We will post updates as they come to light, from obligations tax wise to useful updates in Xero among other things like downloads through too ways to search the site for information and that’s just the beginning.

Periodically the site will go off-line as we make site wide changes and backups etc. This is likely to happen more often in the early stages of development. We appreciate your patience during these times.

We hope you find all the changes helpful as things evolve. Any information provided is for your use according to our Terms and Conditions. Please feel free to share anything you like with others on that basis.
