    I am watching the video, however at 14:56 when you start customizing, you said "click here, the cursor goes up to the top of the window and it’s hard to see exactly what you clicked on. I am a very, very, beginner so far the video is very clear and explanatory but I lose sight of the cursor from time to time. so what did you click on at the top of that window? or would it also be good to click on customize under appearance? would it be the same thing?

    Hi Chet! I’m trying to follow along with your tutorial to set up my WordPress website. But when I attempt to log onto my site I get this message: "Fatal error: ‘break’ not in the ‘loop’ or ‘switch’ context in /home2/reaseint/public_html/wp-content/plugins/facebook/social-plugins/widgets/like-box.php on line 84."
    I can’t log in to the site! Can you tell how to correct this problem? The WordPress forum isn’t helping at all. Thanks in advance for your assistance!

    Hi.  I watched your YouTube video on Website tutorial (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wiaT4bR3xGA) using the Traffica theme and have followed along to create my website.  So first of all, thank you very much, your tutorial was exceptionally easy to follow along with clear and precise instructions.My question is, I am trying to create a page, easy to do I know, but I don’t want it to appear at the top, I want it in only the footer.  I can do sub-pages, I learnt that from you, but I cannot create page and then place it where I want it to go?? Getting very frustrated!  I am wanting to create a menu at the footer of my website to include all my legal stuff like Privacy Policy and site map.  Please can you help me.I look forward in hearing from you.Regards Sue

    hey guys, I need to remove some webpress files from my file manager folder.when I want to get to wordpress, I always log in from hostgator and click on quickinstall. I didnt realize that I was repeatedly downloading the same file over and over again. I thought that was the only way I could access wordpress. I kept getting a message "installation failed. Then it says that the directory should be empty. I searched to see what the error meant. It said "THIS MEANS THAT WHILE TRYING TO COPY THE FILES FOR THE NEW SCRIPT OR SOFTWARE QUICK INSTALL IDENTIFIED THT THERE WEE FILES THAT SHARE THE SAME NAME ALREADY IN THE DIRECTORY YOU ATTEMPTED TO INSTALL TO. THIS IS A SAFETY FEATURE TO HELP PREVENT EXISTING SITES FROM BEING OVERWRITTEN INADVERTENTLY." so that is what I have been doing by re-installing wordpress every time I wanted to go to wordpress. the problem is now I dont know which file to delete from the file manager. That is what i need to do. I can do that except I dont know which files, unless I delete them all but then that might not be a good ideal. Can I get any help with identifying which file to delete? thanks in advance

What might I do to link my website to my social profiles? Is there any way of knowing the visitors I have on my website? At the moment this is all. Thank you.
