  1. great video, I have the widget but not widgetized. where would i got get it or is there an alternative.?

  2. Hiii Hogan! the version of Theme changes:
    ((Themify Ultra version 1.7.8 is now available. Update Now or view the change log for details.))
    How can I download the recent? PLEASSSE

  3. Hi, Hogan. Thank you for a nice tutorial. I think themify is a very good theme, but however I tried I didn’t find the way to place a short code or any other code into a page. Do you know how to do it? Thank you. Good luck and all the best.

  4. Hi do you have the Themify Ultra version 1.7.8 update. if so , can you provide a link

  5. Hi Hogan,
    I have chosen a header with header top widget, as I wanted to show some ads above header, now that text widget is showing below menu on Mobile phone, is there a way to show that above header on mobile or turn that widget off on Mobile device?

  6. I have been having trouble with the theme. First, it can’t seem to load the theme customizer. And then even though I use Google Chrome, it can’t load the Builder. What do I do?

  7. Hogan,
    I do not get the Themify Ultra icon on my dashboard. Is there anything I can do to fix this? Thanks.

  8. Hey Hogan, whatever you give us link under the this video, is this theme free? and can we download and use it to create our website?

  9. when i use the search bar on my blog it comes up with the home page and the about page? Any idea why this is? Thanks

  10. Hi! Can you please tell me how can I change the font color of Recent posts, Recent comments …. Thanks 🙂

  11. Hey Hogan,
    I use the themify Ultra skin and the themify tiles plugin. I edited some small tweeks in the customize panel. When i ppreview as logged in everything is fine, but when i use a browser to check the website it seems like my customizations do not work. Have you encountered something like that?

  12. Hey Hogan, just curious I put an email address in my header same “hack” as the phone number in menu. Is there any way to make it a functional link? Thanks!

  13. Hey Hogan! Thanks for the awesome tutorial. I’ve learned a lot. 1 question. When you click on the post title and it brings you to a separate page, if somebody wants to leave a comment on that post, they are (required) to leave their email and name. How do I change that where anyone can leave a comment and they’re not required to leave any info. They can post anonymously if they choose. BIG THANKS from San Francisco!
