Bit the bullet – moving to Genesis

One of the sub sites is still on Thesis 2 (my local reflexology site) but I just couldn't seem to make enough progress with the main site refurbishment. I bought Thesis 1.xx because it would give me a degree of control without having a solid programming background.  Once Thesis 2.xx arrived I've had nothing but hassles. Partly that's due to the problems of trying to retrofit an old html site + Wordpress blog into a single site with a new theme. If I was just starting a fresh site then I doubt this would have been such a Continue Reading
