* I’m using new relic and xhprof for profiling
* I’m the child theme author. I keep tabs on woo theme updates but have to admit that i’ve been lazy to change their version number. I’ve also recently refactored the child theme to be a full one, getting rid of the salient dependency (and overhead)
* I had not noticed how ECF was not in its latest version
Updating ECF will take some time as we’ve built some custom functionality around it. I’ll be doing that and returning to this topic when there’s an update.
For now i thank you so much for the agile responses and hope that, should my issues persist after the update, we can continue the conversation!
