Please note that this is an affiliate link, as described on my Privacy and Cookie Notice page and I am happy to recommend GeneratePress. The theme and plugin together provide powerful features for customising numerous aspects of a website. They are designed to be lightweight and the level of support given by the developer, Tom Usborne, is amazing. I trust Tom and his team to provide a solid, dependable base for building my websites.
This is an ongoing exercise and I intended to add to this article as I build the site. I’ll use this as an overview of the project, and will include links to other articles, both on this website and elsewhere, that go into more detail. Note that the screen prints below show examples of how the customiser can be used to change things such as colours, spacing and typography. However, since I am still tweaking the website and making changes as I go, the actual settings I use may not be the same as the examples shown.
