    I love all the attention the Customizer is getting. Hope it gets more and more adoption among theme authors.

    Iv been using the customizer as the sole options panel for the last year in my themes – I do love it and cant wait for more folks to take advantage.

    WordPress gives you most of what you need, so why add the overhead of an options panel? :)

    This sounds really good, and customizer is heading the right way for not techies like me.. Is there a way of changing the standard font size too??

    Thanks

    You want to add a whole plugin instead of writing a single line of code. OMG …

      not everyone knows how to write code. You need to think wider than the developer community. The average blogger needs a lot more help than we do with this sort of thing.

    I don’t get it. You should be using a child theme anyway. So why not code the font style in the child theme?

      There is no rule saying you should use a child theme, plus that requires coding knowledge and it requires new themes. If you have say 10,000 sites on a network, you don’t want to have 10,000 different themes running as that would make a heck of a mess of your themes page. Plus there are many other situations in which this makes more sense than using a child theme.

      It’s an option for people who don’t want to, or don’t know how to develop things. With WordPress there’s rarely a single ‘right way’ to do things.

    Like the sound of editable fonts, can change the whole look and feel by itself. The customizer is a great tool but changing things like the background colour is not always great in isolation. It would be good to see a colour choice blend across all design elements, not just the background. Blends would nee to be set up by the developer and then changeable via the customizer. All great for non-techies who need a change every now and again and who are intimidated by the theme options panel.
