  1. Boy you must be confused reading all these comments! I like the tutorial and had no problem stopping it to look at my site. All you have to do click anywhere in the video and it will freeze. However, I need to put a number of images in the side bar and image widget seems to only be able to do one. Any other one will replace the one already there. I’ll keep looking! Thanks.

  2. That was way too fast for me to understand a thing. I listened a few times but alas cannot follow this video. Sorry
