  5. Hey there! Thanks for the videos, been following along the entire time. I’m happy to say I began learning WordPress dev through your tutorials and have branched out since your series ended. I’m almost ready to launch my first premium responsive highly dynamic wordpress theme! Its hidden in my local host for now but as soon as it’s released I will definitely share it with you! I integrated an internal contact messaging system, full theme options, zoom on image hover, 9 custom plugins, optional ad areas, custom comment section, custom featured slider, many backend options, internal seo etc. I’m a somewhat successful blogger and developer, learning to code in wordpress is a godsend, your videos gave me the base syntax and understanding to push it to the limit! I’ll contact you and give you a free copy of the theme and plugins when it’s released. A gift for the tutorials. Thanks again.

  6. Great video, thank you for the help! I’m just curious about one thing. How are you seeing the live updates of your modified theme in your WordPress? I’ve been using SublimeText on my desktop (Mac) and don’t know how to get the new theme on WordPress to see if the changes worked. Might seem like a silly question but it would help a lot. Thanks!

  7. I copy your code to try it but it’s output Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘function’ (T_FUNCTION) !!! on the line where it is starting
    function learningWordPress_customize_register( $wp_customize ) {

  8. how to show one post with thumbnail title and content from category and remaining posts with small thumbnails and title in same page wordpress. (like news theme home page).

  12. I can’t describe the joy I feel going through these lessons. I feel like a kid again, waking up to work on a model or woodshop project. Every lesson, I can tell my neurons are firing up in ways they haven’t in years, devouring new information and possibilities. 🙂

  13. Excuse me, I did everything you showed, everything works correctly – i have Standard colors in customize options, i have settings to change – but my Output Customize CSS function doesn’t work. Can you help me?
