As it seems to be largely possible to construct/configure a BYOB designed and tutorialized site using the splendid BYOB plugins, it seems to me that an invaluable asset/facility would be if each plugin contained a feature/facility whereby it could generate upon request a list/summary of all of the internal configurations and changes from the virginal default condition.

This would have many uses, including being able to accompany/support/enhance any tutorial that uses it to configure/construct a site, and/or for documentation of how a site has been built.

I am assuming that this information is not presently available/accessible by other present Thesis facilities.

Is this a good/bad/practical suggestion?

There can be quite a lot of fine-tuning/trial-and-error involved in achieving the final desired cosmetic/presentation aspects of a site and this final documentation would seem to be of great value.

Although that is potentially a huge job.  One I'm not likely to have time for any time soon.  

Most of my plugins write CSS, and do so in a separate CSS file named byob-custom.css.  You can see the affect that making settings changes has on the CSS file by comparing a before and after.  You can also see the affect the plugin is having on a page by looking at the page source.

I had suspected that it might not be as simple as I had hoped.

Pity.

Oh well..... smile

At some point this site will be able to support someone who can help me with that sort of thing.  Good documentation is at the top of my list of things to have done when that time comes.
