We had a great style designed and coded for us when we made the switch to xF from vB, back in April 2012.
Since then we have had to have the templates (quite a lot of them) updated after every software update...and this can be a hassle, for the developer, at times.
- We want to take advantage of the core responsive functionality
- We want the updates and changes to be as simple as possible
- We want to retain as unique as possible, look and feel to our site
- We need to be able to take advantage of the great changes that are coming, without massive changes every time
This has really been highlighted for me, with the Admin's who have pretty a much core style, being able to upgrade to v1.2 already, whilst I know when we upgrade, it'll be a major project...
