    Outstanding video. I’m writing this with the understanding that I’m not going to be an expert after an hour. Some of the challenges I had were- 1) Facebook crashed my site when I tried to download it. I had to call tech support because I couldn’t get back into the lesson. 2) At the border part after the video installation, I didn’t get "themes" to allow me to make the border 3) When you were at Unsplash.com, I didn’t get the option to "save image as."

    On 3), I did manage to get myself an awesome background image for my desktop though. I just couldn’t figure out how to get that image into Pic Monkey or on my site.

    4) About a half hour after 3- I finally got to where I could edit on Pic Monkey, then it made me sign in for an account and I lost the chance to make it 1080 X 420. I also don’t have the text in the pic on my home page. So I’ll have to figure that out a bit.

    This is the 2nd video I’ve watched on this. For anyone who’s new and reading this, don’t worry if everything doesn’t line up. You’ll start seeing actions that are common. My site isn’t perfect yet, but it’s off to a more solid start than I would have imagined yesterday. This video will get ya pointed in the right direction.

    Thank you- I liked and subscribed. Good luck with your venture.

    The facebook plugin crashed my site! I had to remake a site as I did not transfer the files to FTP initially. It’s not compatible with the latest version of PHP or WP, I don’t recommend using it.

    I added all the main pages as directed ( at around the 23:00 mark on the tutorial), but they don’t show up when I click on "view site". It appears that the Vantage Theme phot is covering them up. Suggestions on how to fix?

    Thank you so much Andrew. This looks really great. However, the world of WP seems to change really quickly. Even though your post is from Jan 2016 (barely 15 months ago) I can’t find Facebook by Facebook. I’ve installed Facebook Feed by Smash Balloon in the hope it might have the same functionality. Cheers!

    Hi Andrew, thanks for this tutorial. I was able to learn some of the basics very quickly. And the free tips were cool too. I actually created my own logo with a very few clicks. I do have a couple of questions because I may have been using a newer version of the word press tool and some things did not sync up. I was able to figure out most of it. However two major things for me personally, were that I could not find the Facebook plug-in that provides the "like" box; and two, I could not find the way to delete extra titles on some pages because I had added a title after. I saw you deleted the same problems you had, but I could not find where my version had the right attributes to do so. I figured I will give you this feedback, because I appreciate your effort and tutorial skills. Keep it up!
