This week I have had my nose buried learning all about the WordPress Theme Customizer, I have come to the conclusion that for most themes nowadays we can use that instead of a theme options panel. The live preview of changes is great so users can see what effect they are having on their site in real-time and they don’t take place until it has been saved, unlike normal options panels where you make change then go and refresh your site. I’d like to see more themes make use of these great built-in feature and it’s the direction I will be taking for future themes.

Anyway, on with the news …
