McGhen Web Development is the home of Pittsburgh, PA based independent web developer Pat McGhen. Specializing in HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and WordPress, I offer custom development and maintenance services to help your organization reach its goals.

I've been a professional web developer for about ten years (but I built my first website in 1996!), and have focused primarily on the front end. Over the years I've worked in a variety of environments, from being a one-man show to working among a team of developers. Agencies, corporations, non-profits, freelance - you name it, I've done it.


Already have a website and your previous developer is no longer available? Let’s talk about where you are and where you need to go.


Does your old website need an overhaul? Starting from scratch? Whether you need a static website, or an easily maintainable CMS-driven website, McGhen Web Development is here to help.

This was not your standard WordPress integration. Sure, I created templates from static HTML files, but it didn’t end there. The client required a number of custom post types and custom taxonomies for using the same content in multiple places. I created a solution that allowed them to tie their clients, blog posts and case studies to related fields and industries. It was a fun project that pushed me to learn a lot and really up my WordPress customization skills. The end result was a happy client and a happy developer.
