  1. Tyler, I have followed your directions step by step twice and when I get to add page both old and new, it says it published but doesn’t show on site anywhere, not even in menu bar, ie, About, or Skills of which I made. I even uninstalled WP and started all over again. (I use hostgator too) Please advise

  2. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! I saved tons of $$ by switching to Tyler lol And I just love your family.

  3. Tyler Moore I’ve been trying to make a row with four or five buttons. I have not figured it out. I need some help.

  4. Im literally 1.30 into this video and can already tell how helpful this is going to be such a great idea for you to include a pdf checklist of all things needed many thanks.

  5. I made it. Your explanations were just what I needed. Look forward to viewing future tutorials.

  6. Thanks so much Tyler – still have to discover if I’ve succeeded – it’s taken me days – I’m definitely not techy – proud of myself none the less – I’m 1 of the 20 🙂

  7. Hi Tyler. I think your tutorials on building a website are great. I was looking at an older video you had and on there you recommended a website called for background images. i tried that but it says the file are to large for wordpress. It says 2mb is the max. Any work around? thanks

  8. First this video is awesome!!! How can i get a button to go to a company replicated site. It always adds the WP site url in front of the needed url.

  9. Hi Tyler, I’m a first-timer in your channel. Just one question, is this page responsive or are there extra steps involved in order to make it responsive??
    Thanks in advance!

  10. Tyler, how can I add text to a content block that I can excerpt with a “read more” function?

  11. I’m so darn frustrated. I have downloaded WordPress yesterday, so version 4.7.3. I am following you tutorial but our versions seems to not be the same, for example: The 27:40 section on plug-ins – my version do not give me the option to delete the plug-ins, only to activate or deactivate. Why is this or am I just stupid.

  12. Hi Tyler I love your step-by-step teaching. I created a website last year and I wanted to change the pop up video in top right header, but I have lost the button codes. Can you send them to me?Thank you. Ruleen

  13. FABULOUS tutorial!!! Thank you!!! I was getting so frustrated with themes and all that mumbo jumbo, and you finally made it easy.

  14. Hey Tyler! I’m setting up a church website and I would like to make it so people can make donation or tithe online. Can I still use the woocommerce plugin? If so how can I set it up where the individual puts in the dollar amount they wish to donate?

  15. I don’t know if it’s changed or not but I installed the Beaver Builder plug in, tried to access a template and was redirected to a page saying I needed to upgrade. Do they no longer allow free templates?

  16. Wow, I can’t believe you are actually letting us use your video for free! Thank you so much! This is the best “How to” video for websites and I’ve been watching them for months trying to make sense of them. Thanks again ?.

  17. Great tutorial–loved the sectioned steps, super helpful! Anyone know how to add a header image above the main navigation using the Tesseract theme? I’m struggling a bit here…

  18. Hi Tyler, My name is Ray and i loved your video.I watched it few times and I build my first website.Now I need your help for adding background video to my website and also I have another website which some one build it for me and I want to change the theme and change the hosting to Hostgator .Thank you so much for your help.

  19. Hi Tyler,
    I did everything as per your tutorial so far. When I try to activate Woocommerce I had Error code “Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_FUNCTION in /home/content/m/a/q/maqureshi786/html/estore/wp-content/themes/tesseract-free-theme/woocommerce/woocommerce-functions.php on line 538”

    Please help me to solve this issue.


  20. This tutorial made me actually appreciate WordPress for what is can do and how it all works, so thanks for that.
    A very helpful tutorial when I was struggling with what bit does what, and generally scratching my head over it all. Although I am not starting from scratch, but with an advanced site that is already built. I didn’t know where to start, but now I do.
