Ep 016 – None But My Own

Finally! We are in the BUILD stage! Tune in for important tips on what to do before you build to make things more efficient.

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.
