Well another design change using a new framework developed by Gantry.
It took about a day to get a fairly good handle on how to configure my current template. Basically I took one of their templates and started infusing my colors and logo. I still have a long way to go to get the site the way I want it.
The framework is solid and responsive across all devices, a really nice feature. Since Google has added responsiveness to it's algorithm this can only help in the search engine results.
I'll update any new features I discover as I delve into this process.
