I’m very pleased with our new website from Merlin Siteworks.  It has created a more professional online image for our business and I’m able to make updates myself. And I appreciate the very responsive expert support whenever I need it.

Testimonial: Ilima Hula Studio O Maryland

January 13, 2012

We needed a website for our new hula dance studio and wanted it to be fresh and light but not too cutesy. I also wanted to make my own updates going forward. Merlin delivered a great solution for us very quickly, just what we needed.  I appreciate the custom Users Guide and the ease with which I am able to update my own website.

We needed to refresh our website and improve our online image and Merlin Siteworks delivered for us. They listened, were responsive, worked well with our graphics designer, and delivered our new website to meet our aggressive deadlines.  I’ve received many positive comments about our new website.

New WordPress 3.3.1: Should We Upgrade?

January 13, 2012

A major new WordPress release 3.3 was released in December 2011, with a minor (but important) release 3.3.1 becoming available on January 3, 2012.  (This Merlin website you’re viewing now is built on 3.3.1 as of this writing.)


So this raises the question:  Should my site get updated to this latest and greatest release?


In short:  ”No”.


Assuming your website is working well and you’re not seeking to invest in new features and capabilities, there’s no real reason for you to upgrade to a new platform at this time.  With a major new release like 3.3, there are always things that get broken and need special attention to make sure your website continues to perform flawlessly.


However, if you are considering investing in some new website features anyway, then we would definitely encourage you to consider upgrading to the latest WordPress version at that time. 


Merlin Siteworks is here to assist you in your website needs and would be happy to help you get your CMS updated to the latest version, when the time is right for you.
