  1. Just what I was looking for! Truly enjoy your videos and learn heaps from you. Thank you for all the effort you put into making these tutorials easy to understand and follow. Be sure all this is highly appreciated.

  2. Man! Especially with this video you managed to get a LOT of the trouble out of the way I was having with coding my first theme for a client.

    Can’t wait for your premium WP course to be published and be sure I will be oh too happy to learn more from you.

    If you have a “support me” button or “donate” button somewhere hidden (I know you don’t you mention it in the video) on I would be donating for sure, you really deserve it!

    Can I ask you, what video software/screen recorder are you using for making these tutorials?

    Instead of uploading possible future themes to my host and letting people/clients see it live (with the option to quite possibly rip the source code) I would prefer to make a video presentation of the theme showcasing the options.

    Also like that people/clients can see what is “under the hood” in the admin area instead of just seeing the theme frontend, I think that is much more of a selling point for themes than just the live theme and seeing a quite possibly boring list of features/options the theme has.

    Anyhow.. Thank YOU!!

    1. Thanks Robert!

      I use “ScreenFlow” to record and edit my videos and it’s one of my all-time favorite pieces of software. I believe it’s Mac-only, so if you’re running Windows I’ve heard the best recorder / editor is Camtasia.

      I think seeing a video of the admin area is a HUGE selling point for a site/theme. Nice idea!
