Speeding things up

In order to speed things up while editing the default theme in ocP i found a Mozilla add on called Fireftp. Makes it very handy and fast to send edited files, images etc to your server without closing your browser. 

So between FireFTP and the developers tools i am moving along at a very nice pace. Just wanted to drop a line in case you may not have heard of it or not. Is a small yet handy tool. 

I was a true Chrome user until the last few updates that made life a bit more tedious when using Chrome so i am back to using Mozill and it's developers edition to work. 

I will make a post later listing all of the tools i use most frequently which happen to be free yet very effective.

Great if you are editing the files directly, but you can edit them via the Admin Zone too (if you didn't know). Same with the actual php files.

I have learned so much, you can edit from the backend, frontend etc. The choices are endless. The GUI helped me learn what is doing what in a flash. Another reason ocP is the best. A lot of thought goes into it from both the user and administrator aspects. One thing i did forget though when working on the theme was to turn of cache. LOL Was wondering why my block changes were not showing up.  :$
