  1. Excellent tutorial on website building using Elementor and GeneratePress. Nothing left unexplained. Very thorough.

  2. I am so impressed…with your video, that is; hopefully I will soon be impressed with myself.
    (I’m over 60 and I could follow you). I’ll let you know how it works out. Thank you!

  3. You should do a course on udemy or lynda, because i did 2 courses from there and all i learned from there was the first and last 30 minutes of this video… Thanks for this great content. Really appreciate this. Good job.

  4. Hi Josh,
    I’m a WordPress web developer for like half an year until the other day i came across elementor plugin and i knew i was home!! But i needed something to walk me through building pages with elementor on areal learning level and i can say i have used your learning to create a website for a client which i will share later on. I think you saved me thousands of dollars i would have to pay for web development pro schools. May God bless you abundantly!!

  5. Just finished watching the whole video. Took me about 8 hours as I was building a replica of the site you made while also trying several options you mentioned. It looks awesome. Thank you very much, you are a born instructor and I will be looking up all your other videos. I will definitely upgrade Elementor to Unlimited and make sure you get referral credit for this. I was about to take a course for WP that would have cost me over $500 with less results than this amazing and comprehensive tutorial.

  6. would you advice to make a child theme after installing the Generate Press theme? Tanks
