  1. By replacing with the_content(); will delete/hide the content aswel? What am I doing wrong over here xD

  2. I never saw the Template video. But I am interested in it. However Im not trying to search for it at this moment. Would you consider placing a card or annotation to the videos referenced in the future?

    Thanks for the videos you are a great teacher.

  3. hi, i don’t even have a reading sub heading and my layout of wordpress is completey different! help?

  4. I’m trying to remove the left sidebar on a child TwentyFifteen Theme but can’t find what’s calling the sidebar in the page.php, function.php, or styles.css. Do you have any suggestions that could help me?

  5. I’m a bit lost. Contents from page.php seems to be what you worked on index.php from previous video “widgets tutorial”. I doubt that I missed any of your series but my page.php looks quit different.

  6. Bless you for this video. I completely screwed up my wordpress site a while back and now my custom home page replaced my blog and I didn’t know enough at the time to fix it. I do now. I also signed up for your 8 hour web development course. You’re one of the best teachers I’ve found. If you had been teaching me five years ago, I’d probably be in a much more employable position. Only too glad to take your online courses on Udemy.

  7. Your tutorial is just Awesome! Thank you for this free gift because I was looking for that.

  8. Thank you very much. I didn’t know how things happened behind the page and now I have confidence to maybe change things – and follow you

  9. Hi! Do you have a tutorial of creating custom template pages that pull in data from custom fields? I am stuck and you are so great at explaining. I know I have to create a custom WP_query but not sure where to start to get this task done. Help! Thank you in advance!! 🙂 skype: adrianaihs

  10. Just a question. If you build a theme is it really that smart to create pages in the websites back-end?

  11. Thanks man really appreciate it, doing stuff tutorials in 2017 don’t cover. Keep it up!
