As I said, it may be off while during the changeover.

That was one of the motivations for doing it.  Those features come built in to most Wordpress themes.

Ah, yes. WP. That's what I use. Great tool. Which theme are you using...or would you rather not say?
I've had an issue with Jetpack mobile theme, that I can share in a PM. It's probably only because of my particular set up.

My theme is based on Sparkling theme with a few bits of custom code.

Very nice. My only criticism is on the Boxshop, instruments for sale pages. The main print is not dark enough, while the actual individual prices are almost impossible to see. The Red print is the only one I find easy to see, on those pages.

Sir John

Is that any better now John?   The main text is now black, and the prices are darker green.

Theo, the menu bar shows a pull down item named "No Link" which, when you click directly on it, leads to a "page not found" message. However the links in the menu that appears when you hover over the item (Preciosa parts 1 & 2) do work.

Hi Steve

Yes that's temporary while we make some adjustments.

In the 'bringing an old hohner back to life' section, under 'disassembly and cleaning', you have made a typo - instead of 'assess' you have 'asses'.
Apart from that, all good :)
