Starting the transition

For whatever reason, yesterday I woke up groggy. By suppertime I realized I wasn’t going to get into a groove and do a significant amount of programming. Instead of trying to plod away at that, I decided I would work on the color scheme & layout which I had talked about in my previous post. The theme I’m using is Prose. Because I work with nearly all the StudioPress Child themes doing the BuddyPress support, I usually grab the beta of a child theme as soon as it’s available. Prose wasn’t an exception.

Prose has a built-in designer that I added BP support for. I actually spent quite a bit more time working with Prose than I do with most child themes (as far as the BP support goes). While I was working with the beta, I decided I would use it on this site. Most of the time that went into the design was choosing the colors. The Prose designer makes it really easy and quick to implement.

I have plans to add more functionality via plugins. I’ve started those and hope to finish and have them live on the site by Christmas.
