  1. Again a great lesson from you Austin, this part worked for me without any problem.

  2. Great tut love this easy to sort now post types i noticed something odd though on the new post types created even if all the boxes are not checked in the custom feilds featured images and tags ect will not pop up.

  3. Great series so far! I’m really looking forward to the part when you make the other elements of the site responsive (index posts, side bare etc). I would really love to be able to do that!

  4. I’m new to WP coding. Will you make a series that will cover Twitter Bootstrap ? ­čÖé

  5. phpacedemy did a great tutorial series on boostrap. You can watch it here /watch?v=y13WPLBfFBs&list=PLfdtiltiRHWFBpI1Hux9DYmGKnTZPBBXo

  6. Thank you very much ! I’ll check that out ! I’ve ordered myself a book for PHP and by far all seems to be clear for me ­čÖé And about Twitter Bootstrap, I heard that it speeds up the work as it comes with pre-made css and a couple of other things i gues. Cool that someone thought about it.

  7. You’re so dedicated much love. Remember you don’t have to reply to every single one!

  8. Can these custom fields adds check boxes?.. like I want people to rate under checkbox rather they enjoyed my post or not… is this plugin that powerful to add that? ­čśÇ

    For newcomers to this tutorial you can get the latest working version at

  10. Is it possible to add the field to all user account signups? This is for sales using Woocommerce.

  11. I watched this tutorial 24 hours ago without watching the previous video. After pulling my hair out I reverted to the previous video and even though editing the function.php in my theme did not work for me as well as creating a post type template with adding fields with php function this tutorial worked for me. It is an advanced topic. and you did this very well. The php is still shaky for me seeing I spent too much time learning Drupal and running into really complicated disasters with moderate success, I’ve found wordpress wonderful to work with not that one is better than the other.

  12. Is there another way to do this by adding the function create_post_type into a plug-in instead of the theme function.php? I understand that adding to the plug-in is a “better” way to handle it.

  13. I’ve just completed┬áResponsive WordPress┬áTheme Tutorial – Part 13 and would like to say you have done an amazing job of teaching WordPress Theme development so far. I really think that you should rename the channel “Awfully Good Media”!!! Thanks Austin.

  14. Does this get included in your theme or do all users of your theme need to download the plugin and configure the custom fields themselves?
