    Thank you for your tutorial, very useful. For some reason all of the bold text defaults to my accent colour rather than the assigned font colour of black. I have tried inserting additional CSS code to make everything strong turn black, I tried resetting all of the Enfold styling and starting over. I don’t know what else to do. Do you know what happened and how to fix it?

    Hi Ferdy, The course looks great, but I can’t seem to get past buying the theme. It won’t let me create an account as it remembers my email address and "believes" I already have an account. I would love to finish your course, but this is a show stopper. I opened a trouble ticket…again. Lynne

    Can this tutorial be use to create a tech store with storevilla pro theme. Would like some information about it.

    Ferdy: I thought I’d try to build my own website using the Enfold theme and found your tutorial. It is awesome. I have learned so much. My business isn’t like yours so I’m going to have to use different components, but now I’ve seen how it can all fit together and have learned to change so many of the component by following along with my own site. I just wanted to thank you for taking the time to create this tutorial and wish you the best.

    Thank you, brilliant tutorial! My only suggestion would be more time links in the description because the last one is at 1:38 but the tutorial goes on for almost another hour and a half. If I want to go back and refresh my memory I have to sift through, very time consuming.

    Hi there. this is a great great tutorial about enfold theme. I have a question, though.
    I am a beginner and I would like to ask you if we can change the copyright info in the footer section (theme footer), Just because I use it for our own company. Is it possible?

    I do not seem to have the "excerpts" option at the bottom of the build page on the back end.  Where can I enable this so that it shows up for me?

    Your tutorial for Enfold is the best one on YouTube. I am wondering though – I would like my logo to be much larger than it shows on my main page. But no matter what size I add it in, it keeps shrinking down. Is there a way to make the logo larger or a way to change the default dimensions in Enfold?

    Hi Ferdy, loved watching your video and found it incredibly useful, thank you! I do have a question though – how can i upload a .ggpkg file which allows me to run a virtual tour. It runs very well in regular WordPress and uploads fine. When i tried to upload in Enfold it would not allow me to do it and i had to get a guy from my hosting ground to change permission so i could upload it. Unfortunately once uploaded it will not play as a virtual tour? Any ideas?
