    For some reason the services are showing up in the editor but not on the website. Having problems finding the fix in the description, any ideas on how to get my services view able to the public?

    I found this tutorial very informative…… I am almost set up, though I feel I made a mistake. Our Services in the menu bar – when I click on it, it doesnt go anywhere…. it doesnt link to the sydney services widget…. what can I do??

    OMG….you are SO FABULOUS for doing this. I didn’t have a clue and spent many frustrating hours trying to figure it out (this is NOT intuitive) and watching other unhelpful videos. I stayed with you from beginning to end…it took 2 days for a 1.42hr video 🙂 but my site is up, I’ve learned a TON and I am feeling confident enough to play around a bit. MANY THANKS!

    Hello, I’m completely non-techie. This video appears to geared towards wordpress.com and not wordpress.org. Seriously pulling out my hair. I don’t understand, even when reading the forums. I have no idea what this means or how to fix. Just trying to upload a theme and get this msg: You need to upload a version of Marlin lite higher than 1.0.5. Increase the theme version number in style.css, then upload your zip file again. Lost as hell lol. Any pointers?

    I’ve lost the section ‘our services’ under my header on my website. It doesn’t show on my website. It appears I’ve lost a few section. My website shows my header and blank spaces and ‘our work’ is the last section. How do I get our services back onto my website? When I go into the Services tab, I can see all the services I’ve created and they all belong in the same category. Thanks you!

    Hi James, thanks for the tutorial. I have followed every single step very carefully but I am at 50:53 min where you tell us to check Services on the Home Page.  I have a blank on my Home Page instead of the Services that I have filled in. Can you advise? Thank you

    Hi.. In the portfolio section.. How do I remove the "Show All" button. I dont want to display all my projects on the home page. I have 3 diff portfolios and I want the home page to display them separately so that it may be viewed at the discretion of the customer viewing my website

    James, any idea how to get rid of the categories, archives and search bar that is automatically added on the right page of my projects? It doesn’t look good and I cannot seem to find the place to take this off.
    Thanks a lot!

    Hi James. It’s amazing what I learned from this video. Thank you very much. One question: how to get off the active link (home) of my logo? I wanta a single logo, with no link. Tks

    Great video! Can’t wait to get my website up and running.  Is it possible to add a shopping cart for a service I am selling? And/or add a tip jar to the website?

    Hey Hey,

    I’m an absolute website rookie and this has been a great help.
    Loving the video and up to step 5 where we need to change the services section over. When I uploaded the xml files it came up with several errors and i’ve retried it multiple times. Now my menu on the wp-admin page is missing services, employees, testimonials, clients and projects which are included in your video. Just wondering how I can add these in??

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi. I just need the domain, I already contracted with a hosting company. Is that ok?

    James, you talk about an "email list" in the video saying that there is a link to the tutorial in the description. I don’t see that; can you tell me how to find out about it please?

    hi everyone if your having trouble importing the xml file and really like it. Down load one click demo import plug in. Activate it and find it in appearance and click import demo data. Wait a few mins and it should work fine

    Hi James. Thanks for a super useful video. One question – is there a way to change it so that you only have one slide on the header slider? The theme seems to require you to have two pictures/slides and if you set them both to the same picture it looks like the page is ‘refreshing’

    Dear James Strafford, thank you so so much for this amazing video. One question remains tho: can I first just start without hosting and then at some point when my blog is running for some time (sorry I am an absolute beginner at this point) choose webgator for example? I hope you could help me with this

    Hi James, thank you for taking the time to explain this. You are a natural talent! Very pleasant. I have a little question: the call to action widget keeps placing the text at the far left, even when I select align in center in the widget. Is there anyway to work around this?

    This is awesome! Can’t wait to transition our website over to this template. I have one question that I didn’t see covered throughout the video. Are you able to add an events page, calendar page, etc with this theme? Our website is designed for a programming board on a college campus that regularly hosts events. Any suggestions for highlighting these on the homepage, but more importantly creating a separate page with a calendar?
