We are contacting you after having our website updated by a developer who used Netlify to host our frontend. We are a literary agency, and our website is mainly a display of the books we represent (purely text and a few covers, no more than 200 books). After putting our previously Word-press and EX2 hosted website in the hands of our developer, we found ourselves with a fragmented website, working through three platforms, Wordpress, Github and Netflify, making it very complicated for us to make any modifications and giving us a small space for autonomy.
Having only 300 minutes of free ‘build’, we find ourselves in a difficult position: we have indeed observed that every time we make a change in our texts on WordPress, even if we only change a coma – which is often necessary given our literary bias, the whole website is impacted and the free minutes fly away (it takes 10 minutes for every build).
Is it possible for us to make changes without having the whole website ‘rebuilt’ every time ? That is, we would like to be able to operate changes on the entire website and when we have finished updating it to be able to save all the contents at once, by activating the builds towards Netlify. The idea behind is that all adjustments are taken into account at once.
We saw that we can ‘stop builds’ but would that be enough ? And in order to save the changes we make into our website (ex WordPress content), do we need to ‘re-activate the builds’ ? And thus, will the modifications made in our texts on Wordpress be all updated and taken into account at once, helping us optimize our time of ‘builds’ ?
I hope I made myself clear. We are trying to understand how to work with this new website which we were handed in without any explanations, nor had we been informed that our website would be fragmented.
