Memo To Self: Just a List of New Theme Tweaks?

As we’re in the process of moving over to a new wp theme, it sorta made some kind of sense in me head to keep a track (ish) of what we’re tweakin’ and changing early on?

Not saying that we’ll manage to keep on top of it. However the thought process seems valid for the now and just maybe we’ll do what we do over the next few days or so.

You know what it’s like with lists?

For the record don’t worry about the look & feel of our space right now, for sure redesigning a site live is probably not the best way to go.

Then again what do we know?

No Stress & No Worries & in no particular order:
