  13. Loved this video!!!! Thank you so much for sharing this precious information!!!!

  14. +Mike Simmons¬†Hi, and thanks for the great video. I’d like to know if you have worked with the new button option plug-ins since Tiny MCE doesn’t seem to exist anymore. Could you recommend a different one maybe? Perhaps one that allows me to choose buttons and doesn’t just come with a set menu…

  19. Hello sir Thanks for making Very good Video  about Word Press.

  20. Hello there. Great video but at the Plugins part there is no option for me on the WordPress dashboard menu. Any ideas? Thanks

  21. Hi Mike,

    Really a cool stuff and I like they way you teach. I had no knowledge about the wordpress (watched few videos on youTube but couldn’t get much), and after watching your tutorial, I am able to bring up a site and main thing is, kind of understood the concept.¬†

    I have a request to make, Would you be able to upload a tutorial on e-commerce site please. I shall look forward to hearing from you.


  22. Another great video mike ! ! ! There are coarses that cost hundreds of dollars with way less value then what you teach ūüôā

  23. Mike, I don’t show percentages when resizing pictures. And when I added editing features they didn’t all show up with picture icons. They’re there, but I have to hover over them to find them. Oh, and thank you SO much. ¬†You make this procedure comfy on a cold winter’s day such as this. Also, I have the most updated versions of all the applications. For nextgen, I don’t get no shortcode to insert. I think I figured it out going to the web site. Also, I couldn’t seem to “untile” my background at the beginning. Ended with Word Fence so will go back to check it out. I subscribed. Looks like there is something for beginners for 2014? Will check it out. You are THE best!

  24. I’m also an animal lover, horses and cats here. ¬†Somehow they find you. They didn’t understand/appreciate my focus the last few days. Do you think it’s wise to go on to the 2014 video I’ve now bookmarked, and then onto your 2014-2015 when available? Do they all add new plugins? What a treat!

  25. Thanks so much Mike for your videos, I’m so grateful to have people like you in the world! Trying to follow your process, I have a question, how come I don’t see Header under Appearance anymore I thought I have used it before…frustrated.
