Used Nappies

Used Nappies - the number 1 auction site in the UK to buy and sell used, pre-loved washable cloth nappies.

In early 2016, looking for a way to pass on my children’s reuseable nappies and get a return on my investment, I went in search of a site which would facilitate the sale of these used (clean!) nappies. I found UsedNappies.co.uk but it was in the process of being shut down as the current owner was moving on.

I stepped in and purchased the site, including software licenses and user base. The purchase and takeover was not without issues. The software the site was running on (PHPProBid 6) was massively out of date which meant that there were potential security issues. The upgrade to the latest version of the site software was both a) expensive and b) complicated by poor documentation.

I took the decision to restart the site from scratch. Once the new version of the site was up and running on the latest version of PHPProBid, I created an email to advise the 15,000+ existing users that they needed to re-register. I re-developed the appearance of the site creating a custom theme for the software, custom WordPress blog and reintegrated social media.

    Magiboards has been working with Jem for 9 years. She single handedly developed and continues to maintain the Magiboards’ website. Our brief to Jem was to design something which we can easily update ourselves. This has worked very well, leaving our budget to be spent on continually adding new areas to the website.

    An excellent web programmer, Jem understands what we are trying to achieve and always delivers. I would highly recommend Jem to any company wishing to use her services.

    After having numerous difficulties with another website designer, we asked Jem to provide some assistance. Jem managed to overhaul our website and provide a user friendly site that we are thrilled with. She is extremely thorough, and knowledgeable – which gives us confidence that we are getting the best care for our site. She has provided support throughout challenging times when we have needed information to be readily available for parents. All we can say is, we are more than happy, and fully recommend Jem.

    I loved working through the process of developing my website. I concentrated on the words and imagery while Jem did her magic with the technology. I get so many compliments about our website and it’s definitely helped our business to grow quicker than we could have imagined. Being a lot of a technophobe, Jem’s calm assurance is always very much appreciated. I’d really recommend her.

Why I love working with WordPress

I've been using WordPress since the heady days of version 1.0 and developing WordPress websites commercially since version 1.5 (released in 2005!)
