Dear All,

Just want to ask.

When a web designer hand over the project/files back to the client upon the completion of web designing, those files will be provided to a web hosting company for hosting purpose.

Now, the question is.... are those files editable i.e. means can I get another web designer to edit the file, for maintenance purposes? To what extent the website/file can be edited?

What is the common practice for the web designing industry when handling over the files to client upon completion of web design?

Since your topic title mentioned "WordPress", then yes, they are editable since WordPress is opensource.

it depends on the agreement with the web designer..

If in the agreement stated they will provided editable files in psd/ai then you can ask other designer to edit if for you.

some designer only provided the client with complete templates only

If the previous provider didn't mention that they use WordPress, then you may want to request the admin access from them.

If they refuse to hand it over, be sure that you've access to your hosting server (especially MySQL). However, if the provider is also hosting for you and never in your life have you requested the access, things become difficult.

Only thing you can do in this case is to read the project agreement and determine whether they stated that access will not be granted to you. Or, if there's a small print that goes "any other request is ignored unless specified"

Anyway.. if the provider has a sense of professionalism, they should provide you (client) access to what you need.
