John, as you can see from the previous threads, it appears that Rick is busy elsewhere. Where that leaves all of us, nobody knows. As the weeks and months go by, certainly some of us are a little annoyed, as many of us paid for lifetime memberships etc.

However, there is quite a bit of technical know-how amongst the members of this forum, so if you have access to your site and you're up for learning how to make changes yourself, we may be able to help. I have quite a few sites using Agility Nude (which is the skin on your wife's site) - though only one using Woo Commerce as well. Content changes are generally very easy; layout changes if you have never used Thesis or Agility would likely be a bit confusing at first - there is definitely a learning curve. But we'd need to know what you were looking to change first!

Let us know. (I've been away in South America, or would have responded to this a lot sooner). You can also contact me privately via the contact form on my own website if you wish. paddyduncan.com

Yes, while I've dropped the ball on a number of folks here in the last 9 months, I've been involved in the same struggle everyone else is.  How to survive in an ever changing technological environment.

BYOB had become the best buggy whip instructor around.  Unfortunately technology has passed us by and buggy whips and buggy whip instruction is no longer in sufficient demand to be a working business model.  Perhaps it never was.  That was a very depressing realization - essentially 8 years of hard work culminating in failure.

As you probably all know by now I took a job as a software developer for Waterfield Technologies last fall.  This job has nothing to do with WordPress and very little to do with Web development.  I write software that augments the relationship between Amazon Connect and Salesforce, that adds functionality to Amazon Connect and that implements Amazon Lex. I also dabble in a roadside assistance mobile app and am starting the development of a web UI for setting up business holiday hours and their associated messages within Amazon Connect.

As all of this type of programming was new to me I spent the last 9 months doing lots of overtime trying to come up to speed.  But I'm there now and my work pace has changed to allow me time to work on BYOB.

So, I'll probably be apologizing a lot over the next few weeks but my goal is to be back helping y'all do what you need to do.
