Grade A Painting is proud to announce the release of their newly redesigned website.

“We are excited to be launching our redesigned company website and a couple new micro websites. By updating our main website with a look and feel to match our other marketing materials our existing clients will know immediately that they are at the right website.”

“We are extremely optimistic about the future of Grade A Painting and the continuing support we receive from our fantastic Alpharetta, Cumming and Suwanee Georgia area customers,” said Dustin Shirley, president of Grade A Custom Painting.

“Our new websites have only been live online for a couple weeks and we are already on the first page of Google! Our previous company website had been online for years and never made it into the search engines at all.”

The new websites, created by Andrechelle, allow people to find Grade A Painting when searching the Internet for a painter in the Alpharetta Georgia service area. Grade A Custom Painting provides far more than just painting services. They now showcase a menu of painting and other expert services to their prospective clients:
Painting Alpharetta, Cumming, Suwanee

Andrechelle did a marvelous job matching the look of our new website to our existing company brochure. We couldn’t be happier.

WordPress 3.1.2

Attention WordPress users: If you haven’t upgraded your version of WordPress you may want to take some time and perform an update especially if you have users on your website.  It is important that you upgrade to WordPress 3.1.2 as soon as possible.

WordPress Website ServicesWordPress 3.1.2 is available and is a security release for all previous WordPress versions.  This critical maintenance and security release fixes a vulnerability that allowed Contributor-level users to improperly publish posts.

The issue was discovered by a member of the WordPress security team.

We suggest you update to 3.1.2 promptly, especially if you allow users to register as contributors or if you have untrusted users. This release also fixes a few bugs that missed the boat for version 3.1.1.

Download 3.1.2 or update automatically from the Dashboard ? Updates menu in your website’s dashboard (admin area).

Reminder: always backup your files and database. Never install an auto update if you have made modifications to the default themes or plugins without renaming them because the auto update will write over those files. If you noticed any glitches in the upgrade or conflicts with any plugins be sure to let us know right away.

If you do not feel comfortable updating WordPress yourself, we offer WordPress services at affordable rates.

WordPress Custom 404 Page

By · Comments (0)

Optimize your 404 page to retain your visitors and get additional pageviews

Broken links and deads ends on your website cost you potential customers, erode trust and can negatively affect your standing in search engines.

The 404 or Not Found error message is a standard response code indicating that your computer was able to communicate with the website server, but the server could not find the page that was requested.

A 404 error is often returned when pages have been moved or deleted or never existed (typo). You’ve seen it right? Unfortunately your website visitors will probably see this error too. The good news is, you can turn this error into business.

404 error

Standard 404 Error Message

Typically, the  404 page displays a standard error message when a page or post URL no longer exists on your website. When this happens, the visitor will usually use their browsers back button to return to the previous page on your website or simply continues their journey to another website!

The object is, once the visitors are on your website, you want to do everything you can to keep them there. Therefore, you want to optimize your 404 page by offering your visitors some options that will help them find the information they were looking for (or related information). The easier you make things for your visitors, the better odds you have that they will use the additional search options on your customized 404 page.

Simply add the following code to your WordPress 404 page to help retain your visitors from outdated links from other sites and search engines.

Code to add (and customize) to your 404 page:

<p>Page Not Found, Error 404</p>
<p>The page that you are looking for, no longer remains/exists on this website.</p>
<p>Perhaps you could find what you are looking for by searching our site archives!</p>
<b>Search by Page:</b>
<?php wp_list_pages('title_li='); ?>
<b>Search by Month:</b>
<?php wp_get_archives('type=monthly'); ?>
<b>Search by Category:</b>
<?php wp_list_cats('sort_column=name'); ?>

You could replace the <p>Page Not Found, Error 404</p> with <h1>Page Not Found, Error 404</h1> if you prefer larger text!

This works out well, helping your visitors find what they were originally looking for and it also increases the page views on your site. However, you are not finished yet. You should also add a custom Google Search on your 404 page as well. This is easy to do, and again, it helps your visitors find the information that they were looking for or related information and increases your websites page views as well. Its a win, win situation!

Code to add for the Custom Google Search:

<!-- Google Custom Search Element -->
<div id="cse" style="width: 100%;">Loading</div>
<script src="" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">// <![CDATA[
// < ![CDATA[
google.load('search', '1');
}, true);
// ]]></script>

WordPress 3.1 Update

By · Comments (0)

It’s time to update your WordPress to 3.1. Most plugins and themes have been updated and bugs worked out, so it is now recommended to proceed with the update.


Backup your Database.
Backup your WordPress files
Backup your wp-content folder and wp-config.php
If you have a plugin that backs everything up simultaneously, use that too!

No shame in multiple backups!

Updates usually work without issues, but bad things can happen.

After backing up all your files and database, disable all plugins.

You are now ready to update.

Automatic Update: You can launch the automatic Update by clicking the link in the new version banner (if it’s there) or by going to the Tools -> Upgrade (or Update for version 3) menu. Once you are on the “Update WordPress” page, click the button “Update Automatically” to start the process off. You shouldn’t need to do anything else and, once it’s finished, you will be up-to-date.

If you have customized the default or classic themes without renaming them, you should not use the automatic upgrade, as it will overwrite your changes – you should use a manual update instead.

If the automatic upgrade doesn’t work for you, don’t panic, just try a manual update.

Your update is now complete, so you can go in and enable your Plugins again. If you have issues with logging in, try clearing cookies in your browser.

If you want Andrechelle to perform the update please submit a support ticket.

The fourteenth release of WordPress, the open source content management system, is now available. Codenamed “Reinhartdt,” you can either download the update on or simply log on to your WordPress site and update from the Dashboard. Before updating,  be sure to back up your WordPress database and files just to be on the safe side.


Here are some of the new features with the 3.1 update:

Streamlined writing interface
The refreshed writing interface lends for a more clutter-free writing experience. This update feels slick and speedy.

Redesigned linking workflow
This new feature will allow content authors to find and link to existing published content. In previous versions of WordPress, it was inefficient to link content together in a WordPress site. The ideal scenario for bloggers to link pages together was by copying and pasting the URL of an existing page. Now, you can select the text that you want to link, click on the link icon, and search for existing content that resides in your WordPress site.

Admin bar
Similar to the admin bar that’s featured on blogs, the new admin bar allows the user to navigate to most-used dashboard pages with just one click away. The admin bar contains links or menu items that lets you get to the dashboard, add a new post/page, see comments, and alter appearance.

Refreshed blue admin scheme
Even though this revamp of color scheme is subtle, it’s an appropriate and beneficial refresh. It puts more focus on your content when logged in on WordPress.

Post Formats support
This feature allows the WordPress site to create portable tumblelogs with different styling for different types of posts. The options are Standard, Aside and Gallery.

Import/Export feature overhaul
This update allows for adding author information, better handling of taxonomies and terms, and improved support for navigation menus.

Perform advanced taxonomy and custom field queries
This addition will be a big plus for WordPress developers. This feature will enable the developers to create more meaningful themes and plugins.

It may seem like WordPress 3.1 is a subtle update but this refresh definitely makes WordPress a more wholesome CMS.

According to the creator of WordPress, Matt Mullenweg, this update is one of the best since the release of the system. If you’re running WordPress on your website and have updated to the latest version, let me know your thoughts by leaving your comments below.

The long awaited 3.1 version of WordPress has been released. I’m sure you are anxious to upgrade to the latest and greatest.

HOWEVER, this is a major update to the WordPress code and the changes will BREAK many of your Plugins (and other features) and may even break your Theme.

We suggest waiting and NOT UPGRADING just yet. You dont have to rush in to the Upgrade! (its not a security update)

There are bugs in this new version and I recommend not signing up as guinea pig.

If you insist on upgrading now, BACK UP EVERYTHINGfirst!

Backup your Database.
Backup your WordPress files
Backup your wp-content folder and wp-config.php
If you have a plugin that backs everything up simultaneously, use that too!

No shame in multiple backups!

Updates usually work without issues, but bad things can happen.

For the past week or three our Internet connection has varied from being very poor, completely unusable to sometimes non existent.  Our connection speed has been deteriorating for some time (since last time they “upgraded” our modem), but this week has been particularly bad.

After wasting tons of valuable time with the phone tech support and being held hostage while waiting for couple visits by field techs,  they finally agreed and replaced our modem.

Now our Internet connection seems to be back and at usable speeds.

It’s been a really loooooong week and we have not been able to accomplish nearly as much as we had hoped. If you have an order in, or a support ticket, we will get those through the system ASAP.  Thank you for your patience.

We will be working over the holidays.


Happy Thanksgiving
