  1. Hi Hogan, thanks for the insanely easy tutorials.

    I’ve followed this tut and I’m still in the making-of process. Now that I’ve gotten close to the end, I realise I want the blog page layout back. Also are we able to import the theme of your blog tutorials just to a blog page, leaving this web page setup as is in this tutorial.

  2. Hogan, excellent tutorial, thanks! I plan to watch everything you have recorded on the subject. Just a quick question, right after installing the theme, I activate it, go to transfer and click import to load the Contents Business Tutorial, but when I click the button nothing happens. I’m using Google Chrome, I log off, log in, but still the same. Not a big annoyance but I would like to be able to closely follow the tutorial. Thanks in advance for your help!

  3. Hogan, seems to be down, do you have any other recommendations to choose the action colors?

  4. Thanks for your wonderful tutorial Hogan! but still i would like to know, on how to have a drop down menu, while the screen size is change to Mobile view or a tablets. Drop down menu for a Desktop view works fine but when we bring the screen size to mobile and tablet the drop down doesn’t appear.

  5. Thank you so much Hogan! You literally saved me 1000$. Big respect for what you doing and keep it up man!

  6. Hello Hogan,  thanks you for the wonderful tutorial, I have finished one site and now working on a second one focusing on an event I’ve planned later this summer.  I am having an issue in that I can’t get my page to full cover even though I’ve selected full width  row container in row options and full cover in styling. What can I do to correct? Thanks

  7. Hello Hogan .. Thank you for the awesome tutorial, because of you my website is live now. Can you please upload a tutorial about creating a custom registration form with paypal integration to accept payments. I shall be very thankful to you.

    Many thanks

  8. This was a great video, worth watching the 2.5hours!
    The details this video covers for FREE! are amazing for people with little to no experience.
    I know of others who have paid for this type of info/turorial from other site/professionals.
    You could easily start your own business just creating websites for compaines just following what is shown here!! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU..

  9. Thanks so much, I was able to make that correction with success. I am having an issue in that when I log on to my site from my desk top I get the admin site and cannot get the site without Themify. On My Ipad I get the site as it should be. What can I do?
    Thanks So Much

  10. Hello Hogan, Please disregard my last inquiry. I discovered my error and made the correction. I really appreciate your tutorials and your generosity in sharing your skills and knowledge.

  11. The uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini.

    am getting this error when i upload theme

  12. Hi there, I’m having great fun with your tutorial. Just a quick one, how do I change the hover link colour in my drop down menu? Have tried various suggested codes in my custom css, but nothing seems to work. Cheers!

  13. Perfect!!
    Thank you very much for sharing knowledge with us, thank you again.

  14. Hi Hogan, for our website we want the logo to be in the exact center of the header and the menu options on the left and right beside it. What i tried was: Go to themify settings > theme settings > theme appearence > header design > menu split. I think this is the header design I want but when i choose it the logo dissapears! You can only see the menu options. If i choose a different header design the logo is visible. How can i get the logo in the exact center of the header and the menu options beside it? Can you please help me with this?

  15. Hi Hogan, Thank you for your tutorial, can we update the free Ultra theme that was downloaded from your website.

  16. Hi Hogan, is there any chance to download one of the older versions of Themify Ultra? I’m asking because the one that is available now 1.6.3. sucks, I’m sorry to say that. So far I’ve noticed two BIG changes that make my posts look horrible – first comes when I want to insert a gallery (I can’t choose now how I want the gallery to look like – tiled mosaic, etc.). Second, in the 1.5 version, I was able to select which posts will show in which pages and now I can’t. See, this is a really big problem since my blog is bilingual and I do need to have that choice again… :/

  17. Hey, Hogan. I just decide to put google analytics code on my website, but I don’t know how to install it properly. Do I have to add the code only to Custom CSS or I have to install plugin?

    Thank you!

  18. Can you make a tutorial for themify SEO. Many thanks and great video as always. Cheers ???

  19. If anyone needs a website built free of charge please feel free to message me, I’m currently just starting out on my own after working for a web design company for the last 5 years and need to start building a portfolio of my work

  20. Thanks for all the time and effort you put into these great videos. Having 2 issues that you might be able to help with: 1) Got an API code to put in map, but still got an error. 2) How to format the contact page 7 to use recaptcha since it appears real simple captcha is no longer an option.
    Also, have you had any issues since the new update ?
    Thanks again.

  21. Hi Hogan – You have done a Great job putting this together!!!
    I was able to upload the Theme but having an issue (using windows) uploading the Theme Settings .Zip . When I hit the UPLOAD tab I don’t get the pop-up to load the file. I watched your tutorial and uploaded thru File Manager. but I didn’t see the Document Root listed. It just lists my files. not the files you show in your tutorial. The zip file is now sitting in a TMP Folder. When I try to extract the file it asks where to extract to. I see my domain file in two different Folders ETC & Mail Any suggestions on the file path I need to extract to? Thanks Mike

  22. Hogan, I followed your advice in setting up a new website/blog, and at the time, you mentioned to not worry about clicking the privacy button when paying for bluehost. I followed your advice I thought to create a homepage. So I uploaded my homepage not realizing it was published, and now my personal info is caught in a cache by They want me to pay them to remove it. Do you have any suggestions? I went back to bluehost and added privacy protection, but the damage is done. They told me to ask thedailywhois to remove it. Seems like this website is a way to make money. Any advice? It’s not showing in because they update. But this TheDailyWhois says they don’t update.
    Show less

  23. Hello Hogan. Great video! I have one question. I tried using this with a host that believe is more appropriate for a UK company. However, I realised you have to pay for Themify as an extra. Is hostgator inclusive of themify for free?

  24. Hi Hogan, thanks for the tutorial. I need some help with a simple yet annoying issue. When looking at my mobile page there is this tree lined menu-“cog” that is white. How do you change the colour? – I have white background that appears when you scroll down, therefor people cant see the menu-“cog” when they scroll.

  25. Dear Hogan,

    First of all, thank you for your beautiful tutorials. Really helpful. I need your help to fix this….

    On my website, there’s a gap on top between the header and the page (in spite of clicking on fullwidth in setting) when I check on mobile. Please let me know how to get rid of it.

    My domain name is:

  26. Hey Hogan, another great tutorial. Was wondering if you could make a tutorial on how to add a bookings page to a website to accept online bookings?

  27. Hi, Hogan, Great stuff…I ran into a spot of trouble early on in the tutorial…When I add the custom CSS code to move my “Learn More” links up closer to my feature buttons on the home page, it does nothing…I’m confused as to how to fix this

  28. wordpress has not installed message has not changed for over 30 minutes “is installing” how long should this take to install?

    I am using XMPP server and started to build WordPress website but when I tried to build another website with the same theme, it either remove the previous theme or I have to try some other themes. what is the solution to it?

  30. hey Hogan, I am facing a issue in turn on builder, all other options are working except the themify bulider

  31. Hey Hogan, quick question. Is there a way to change the spacing between paragraphs? It always looks like there is a double spaced return when ever I hit enter to type a new line.
    Thanks for any help you can provide.

  32. it wont let me import settings i click on import and nothing loads up 🙁

  33. Will ! be able to update the Themify builder when new version come out?

  34. Hi Hogan, first of all I wanted to thank you for all of the efforts you have put to make things easier for people like us. When i follow your tutorial, the main image that you use on the home page when i upload is not proportional. There is spacing on the left and top even after I follow steps to remove the top spacing. Can you please help?
