Since the introduction of the Theme Customizer which are most people using in WP themes? An options panel, the customizer, or a combination of both?

You simply can’t fit all options in Theme Customizer, I use it only for visual changes (color pickers etc), all other options still are in Options Panel. So combination of both.

Completely agree with purethemes here. There’s a lot it can do, but a whole lot more it can’t really do all well – in reference to capability & even more so the UI/UX.

I’m going for both in the theme that i’m working at now.. I think it’s the best route:

Have layout, colors & fonts in the Theme Customizer, since it’s a lot better to “live edit” these kinds of properties in the theme..

Have all the other heavy options(analytics, custom css, blog & folio settings, etc.) in the Theme Options, since they are not visual properties that should be in the tc..
