Finally! We are in the BUILD! But.. some precautions even before you start the build…

Please remember: You have absolutely NO control over anything if the preview-build domain and server is not yours. So always work somewhere you control. Always.

OK. So more lists..

Things to do even before installation

– Optimize images (export assets -> svg, jpg, png)
– Text into html
– Plan sizes, colors, layouts, and structure.

Things to do before you start

– Theme + child theme
– Install an image optimizer (+ safe svg)
– Contact form 7 (or gravity) + CF DB
– Turn off the cache

We’ll get into “Things to do during build” in the next episode.

Note: It’s the first version release, so I understand some bugs, but it kept on crashing when typing in the text tool for me.. so maybe don’t invest everything in it yet..
