The technologies used to program client's websites

To achieve quality results, our websites and systems are developed using hand-coded, verified, standards compliant HTML, XHTML, XML and CSS built with core technologies such as:

  • Object Oriented (OO) PHP 8
  • PHP 8.x (plus legacy PHP 3, 4, 5, & PHP 7)
  • MySQL 5.x, 4.x, 3.x
  • HTML 4
  • HTML 5
  • XML
  • CSS
  • RSS Feeds
  • JavaScript
  • Ajax & LAMP
  • jQuery
  • MooTools
  • WordPress + WordPress template modification
  • PayPal integration
  • WooCommerce implementation, debugs and modifications
  • Zen Cart installation, module implementation and customisation
  • Smarty
  • Development and optimisation of graphics with Photoshop
  • Perl and Java
  • MS Access, VB and MS SQL

plus legacy maintenace of packages such as: Actinic

PHPEdit is our chosen code editor and is used extensively for all web programming.

All code is extensively error checked during production and we run all websites that we design, program and develop through W3C verifiers to certify them as standards compliant before we sign them off.


  • We guarantee that all websites we develop will work exactly as specified on any browser that has more than a 10% share of the browser market as specified on (most functionality will work on all browsers). Unfortunately, work undertaken to implement a specific function on a minor browser can be very expensive and will be charged extra at cost.

  • As writing text for effective websites is a skill that we have honed over the years, we cannot guarantee high Search Engine placement on website for which the client had control over the text on the site. We will do all we can to advise on quality text placement for your website but the quality of client written text is something that is outside of our control!

  • All code is licenced to the website owner while they have a fully paid up hosting account with Maweb. The ownership and copyright of code always remains with Maweb unless previously agreed in writing.
