Kwikwap CMS Training

Whaaaaat!!!! Manage my own website!

Before freaking out please note that we provide ongoing support and that included in your monthly hosting fee of R150 per month are 1-3 free changes. If more assistance is needed we will quote before the work is undertaken.

If your agents Melanie or Francois cannot assist there is also assistance from the Kwikwap Head Office by emailing technical@kwikwap.co.za. Please provide them with your username and an as detailed as possible description of your problem. Support is provided during normal South African working hours. Please always include us in your emails when dealing with technical@kwikwap.co.za .

Although we train you on the content management system we often will rather do the more complex, difficult or once off things for you like adding a Facebook Like box or embedding a Youtube video or Widget to your website.
