Can you please make a video on how can I use category as tabs in WordPress .

Hi there. Good video. I am a beginner and my problem of setting home page is a bit weird ! It works fine when 'Reading' menu setting is at 'Your latest Posts ', but when I set it at a 'static home page' and select any page that I made, the site does not load and this message is displayed
" This page isn't working. Site redirected you too many times.
Try clearing your cookies.
I have tried clearing cookies as well but it does not work. Any idea
Thank you, the instruction is clear and you have got a great teaching style. Just a quick questions: I see your code auto complete itself, such automation of the closing tag. what plug-in or package do you use? And what software do you use to inspect the source code. Cheers
Hey! I have a big issue. I have the default HOME page but is not showing in any of my pages, so I cannot add content or anything to it. It is like a ghost page but it is there. I've been using WP for years and this is the first time it happened. PLEASE HELP.
Thank You For sharing such kind of Good videos and i will Subscribe to your channel Now.BTW do you have any video to teach us how to buy host for the website and how to configure? we highly appreciate your cooperation.
HI, hope you don´t mind but I need help, I change the reading setting to select a static home page. All Good. But after the change when viewing the site the home page is blank..
If I reset the reading setting the page is visible agene. what is wrong?
I thought that I was following the lesson until he started to edit a page dealing with Html deletions. I thought WordPress can be installed and configured without knowing codes and html page creations and manipulations.
Quick question, my reading tab doesn't show the front page option to make it a static page. What do i do? Im just really starting to learn this wordpress stuff and so i'm clueless at this point! Would love to get a response! thanks!
Hey guys anyone can help me plz.I'm facing one problem in WordPress website showing the double option one is My site & another one is my website name .why showing to me only? I have seen so many videos here ,there is no video or no one has same like me. Plz mail [email protected] i will send the pic to you.Plz comment here or mail me.Thanks Advance.
Sir....YOU F'N ROCK!!!! I was trying all day to do this! I moved my URL from a sub-directory to the root. I needed to solve exactly the issue you explained. Have a custom page for my home page and the blogs, news in my case, show in a different link. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!
Is there a video where I want to make my home page with the links of other pages in the body of the home page? Currently, my links are on top of each page but I think if I delete that on my home page and replace with bigger "buttons" in the text of the body of the home page, it will look more organized and user will realize there is more information (and easier to find). I just want this on the home page and then they will figure out that the menu is on the top of each page. If so, I hope the design of my idea of "button" for each link is in the video. Thanks!
Hi! Do you have a tutorial of creating custom template pages that pull in data from custom fields? I am stuck and you are so great at explaining. I know I have to create a custom WP_query but not sure where to start to get this task done. Help! Thank you in advance!! :) skype: adrianaihs
Bless you for this video. I completely screwed up my wordpress site a while back and now my custom home page replaced my blog and I didn't know enough at the time to fix it. I do now. I also signed up for your 8 hour web development course. You're one of the best teachers I've found. If you had been teaching me five years ago, I'd probably be in a much more employable position. Only too glad to take your online courses on Udemy.
I'm trying to remove the left sidebar on a child TwentyFifteen Theme but can't find what's calling the sidebar in the page.php, function.php, or styles.css. Do you have any suggestions that could help me?
the call for sidebar is probably in the index.php file. I notice in the tutorial if you are following along he says to copy the information from the page.php but the information he places in the front-page.php actually looks similar to the index.php file...hope this helps!
I never saw the Template video. But I am interested in it. However Im not trying to search for it at this moment. Would you consider placing a card or annotation to the videos referenced in the future?
Thanks for the videos you are a great teacher.
I followed your entire tutorial, and i must say : you did a great job and have a natural talent for teaching. I have learned the basics of creating a theme with wordpress all thanks to you. That is why i would like to express my deep and sincere gratitude for all the lessons you gave! THANK YOU GOD BLESS YOU ^_^
Ounce i was weak( in wordpress and php), but now i have grown - opening One punch man :P
can you please add a link to the tutorial on how to create a custom page template? I've spent all day trying to find something online, and I can't.
I have a third-part (free) theme installed, and I want to add a new page template.
Maybe you figured it out already. This video is part of a complete course with several videos. In part 5 he explains how to make a page template. Here is the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ynA8_5jAc1s&index=5&list=PLpcSpRrAaOaqMA4RdhSnnNcaqOVpX7qi5
I have watched your videos from start to finish and it is very educational and learning experience for me. I have to keep watching it over and over again until I understand the concept of it. I am trying to learn on website development by duplicating a website for the company I am working for using different URL showing different information for education schools and teachers.
How do I convert this simple website into a responsive website using all the steps you did throughout all these videos?
Can you let me know.
And I think Jelata makes a comment without following this course from the beginning. Start with lesson 1 and follow the course. You'll find out that WP is very easy to use and has a very low learning curve.
You probably figured this out already. If not, you can do so from dashboard, Appearance > Editor. Or you can directly access files using FTP programs like filezilla. Find file, download, edit, then upload.
Let me be more specific with my request for you to lead me to your video series. I know I can find portions of them in the result set on the right. I was asking you if there was a centralized place I could view them in their chronological order from the very first video onwards. Thanks.
I am also a follower of this course and I have saved the entire course in my YouTube library for later reference. The course can be found at https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLpcSpRrAaOaqMA4RdhSnnNcaqOVpX7qi5
But be aware that it is a bit old, because the technique of WordPress has changed since. But for the basics it is still very usefull.
The problem is not that Facebook and Google are the only advertising platforms. The problem is that they are considered mainstream media and without these two, the trend of cryptocurrencies gaining legitimacy is delayed. That is right, I said delayed not blocked or prevented.
The World Has Changed.
Five years ago, when bitcoin was unknown to most people, this might have been a fatal move. Today is a different story. I recently traveled to a remote mountain town in the interior of Mexico. Everyone I met had heard about Bitcoin and eyes lit up with excitement when I ask if I could pay for lunch with bitcoin.
Today are dozens of websites dedicated to cryptocurrencies, either holding them, exchanging them or just writing about them. Probably the most effective advertising remains on Google, it is called Google Search and it is free.
If someone wants to learn about owning bitcoin or any other currency, there is a ton of educational information.

Not All Regulation Is Inherently Bad.
If we examine the full spectrum of regulation to this point on a global scale there is one common target most everywhere. That is the practice of exchanges. So far there has been little or not regulation, threatened or enacted, to protect investors from loss of funds due to security breaches.
Capitulation Is A Good Sign.
