  1. I decided to purchase this theme using your link after watching your video. It somehow seems possible for me to create a professional looking website if i follow strictly to your video. Hope I’m able to accomplish that!

    By the way, it’ll be helpful if you may include creating a membership sign-up page. Hope you’ll consider making a tutorial like so.


  2. Thank you so much for you video. It is very clear. I did my website by myself with your help and guide.

  3. hello, I used shortcode for 3-COLUMN BANNER ROW and my text is in top left corner of the box instead of the center. could you please help?

  4. Please i can’t find my add to cart button on my products page, how can i go about it? thanks you tutorial helped me reach this far.

  5. Hi! I purchased this theme a while ago and since, I’ve been having quite a bit of trouble with it. It seems that this tutorial may be a little outdated simply due to updates. I have a few small things that I would like assistance with: 1. Is there a way for me to choose a video as my header instead of an image or slider? 2. The images on the page load very slowly, is there a particular size range that the images need to stay within to load as quickly as the site loads? 3. Also the extra step for the newsletter no longer works. The newsletter appears to be a preset in the top bar as opposed to having to use a short code that’s provided in the tutorial, but now I can’t get it to drop down onto my page when I reload. Please help!

  6. im having some problem with

  9. Help! I built this website and everything was going well then I logged on yesterday and everything is on my home page! My account, check out, cart, contact, shop, terms, and then my home page slider, and then my blog! I cannot figure out how to make it go back. Did the updates do this?

  10. Thank you for your great tutorial. My question is, when I am clicking yes I want my product on the featured items page it doesn’t show up.  Thank once again!

  11. Hello Jameson. Great Tutorial. Question Though. On Step 22 I get a double statement putting in the Values section. Meaning when I put the code from NY Tech Club in, and I render the page I see the following content (one on top of the other): -smaller font: Featured Box Title and then again right below that in all Caps & Bold FEATURED BOX TITLE. How do I get rid of the first smaller text snippet?

  12. Hi, I’ve got this message from WooCoomerce “Your theme (Flatsome) contains outdated copies of some WooCommerce template files. These files may need updating to ensure they are compatible with the current version of WooCommerce.” What are we going to do with this?

  13. i had an issue when adding block for banner row. i copied your shortcode. but the issue is the write up on it is not like your demo website. its just plain more like it was just written and its not even located at the middle like your demo site

  14. Hey..
    I wanna ask few qns.
    1. Is it hack proof ?
    2. I want to add cash on delivery option as payment too as In India most people want to pay on their doorstep. Can I add that feature in it ? Or I have to pay compulsarily online ?
    3. If I wanna monetize my site too like a banner ad or something, can u suggest how to do that ?
    4. will I get sales reports in this theme? If not then how can I get them or if I can add google analytics to it.
    5. Will I be able to use referral or point based system on every purchase to make repeated purchases?
