  1. Hello,

    Just watched some of your WordPress tutorial videos. Wow! Excellent! I downloaded the WordPress CMS, per your tutorial instructions. I followed the lessons up to the Pages template tutorial. Great work. Looking forward to continue viewing more lessons.


  2. Thank you,
    Great tutorial.
    Looking forward for the advanced WordPress course.
    Have to say that Iā€™m getting the logic very quick when you are the instructor.

    1. Hi David, sorry for the month-long delayed response, but just wanted to say thanks for the kind note! The advanced WordPress course will be launching in the next two weeks (finally, haha, it’s over 20 hours so it took me longer to create than I anticipated) šŸ™‚
