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. ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS" I have tried clearing cookies as well but it does not work. Any idea Thanks

Catherine Chan (9 months ago)
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

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.

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!

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.
Romy Kim (2 years ago)
I'm a bit lost. Contents from page.php seems to be what you worked on index.php from previous video "widgets tutorial". I doubt that I missed any of your series but my page.php looks quit different.
barry abrams (2 years ago)
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!

YouSuckDeep (2 years ago)
By replacing <?php get_template_part( 'content', 'page' ); ?> with the_content(); will delete/hide the content aswel? What am I doing wrong over here xD
YouSuckDeep (2 years ago)
By inspecting the code, you can find the right attribute for the Homepage title, for me it was .hentry .title-post. and by that you can hide it from there in the page text editor.
Rico Andrianirina (2 years ago)
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

Hi, 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. shawn

You can only do it with CSS or bootstrap .... just use Media quries for different devices (Iphon, Ipad, Mobile, Computer )

I thought WP was easier than Drupal ... I was wrong ...
Jouke Nienhuis (1 year ago)
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.
Alfred Ayache (3 years ago)
+Jelata Not only is WP **WAY** easier than Drupal, but Brad makes it crystal clear how to get stuff done.  Thanks a bunch Brad.

How do you acess these php files if its a Wordpress theme when you activate the theme the files dont appear in my computer?????? HELP??????
Romy Kim (1 year ago)
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.
Jouke Nienhuis (1 year ago)
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.
David Tan (3 years ago)
Hi, I like your video! Can you please tell me where I can find your video series on WordPress? I want to view them starting from the very beginning. :) Thanks.
