    Following this youtube tutorial doing great. When I added services and published it worked great. Now it has totally disappeared from the website although the info is still sitting in services. Tried deleting the services info and added back in but again with no results on the live site. Anything I can troubleshoot before deleting everything and starting over?

    Hi, I successfully managed to publish my website. It was really helpful. Thank you so much. However, the only problem that I am experiencing now is regarding my email address for SEND button bellow the contact form on my Contact us page. In order to make sure that the SEND button works properly or not, I filled out the form and sent it.Eventhough I received that the request has been sent, but I didn’t get any email. I already checked and there is no problem with the email address. Please be informed that in contact form edit page under the MAIL tab I just copy and paste my email address at the section indicated "TO". I didn’t make any changes to other parts. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

    Thank youuu very much for your awesome tutorial. I used Sydney theme, and WP Ultimate grid plugin for my product pages, which worked out extremely well. Sorry if my website is in Persian, but you still can go around website to see how it works. Also, if you need to showcase Sydney theme RTL capabilities feel free to do so, its the least we can do as a thank you. I have put links to my product pages and home page. Feel free to have a look.

    Hello, I am creating my website and this video was a lot of help thanks for that! I made a website for a project for school, I needed to teach myself something I did not know yet, so I came up with website building. My website is based on guides, like the guides you are making! I will be posting all guides and some are self made. I wanted to ask you if I could put your video on my website because it’s just a perfect guide. I will link all your social media and everything in the description of the guide. Please reply back.

    Thanks you !

    Has the zip file changed under Step 10? I do not see the particular file in the zip file that you were talking about on the tutorial. I do not see the services, testimonials and other tabs on the dashboard menu.
