  1. You don’t explain how/why the single page only shows one result from the loop?

  2. You explained the move of the category wrong because there is a php tag that wraps the category list

  3. very nice tutorial..

    thx and god bless you and the world…

    a sincere blessing from hong kong..


  4. this wordpress series is gonna help me a lot for my internship 😀 I didn’t know you actually had THIS much control over everything in wordpress!

  5. Clearing up the fog. Thanks. Maybe you will get to this but Comments! Nice to know when one goes back to something, why it was done. Plus comments can be used to take out code from processing but easily recovered if the change doesn’t work. Refreshing from the original isn’t so great if you’ve already put a ton of work into something.

  6. This is my first time to comment on a youtube video. I have read and watched tons of wordpress references and tutorials but yours is by far the the easiest to understand. I finally understood how loops and templates work thanks to you. If you can please also post tutorials on how to convert bootstrap to wordpress, that would be awesome! Thanks again and keep doing what you’re doing. Cheers! 🙂

  7. you are great man. Thanks for the clip. It would be nice to have a clip which shows the database part where you can send/get data.

  8. Hey yeah this was great. I am finally understanding wordpress. I sue to hate it so much that to me was much easy to build things from scratch than use wordpress.

  9. This is brilliant, thanks so much for itl! I finally find someone who is explaining great!
    Have a great one! I will definitely watch all of the videos!

  10. I would like to ask: Instead of copying the whole content.php into the child theme and changing it (in case that I only need to add stuff instead of rearranging the content), is there a better way of doing this so that when the parent theme’s upgrade, I don’t have to diff it with my changes and my changes? Thank you.

  11. Oh, and another question: Is there a way to customize the theme by writing a plugin instead of creating a child theme? Can you go over when that will be beneficial and how to achieve?
