    Great video, not sure if I missed it but did you create the ‘about us’
    ‘sample page’ & ‘donations’ page of camera. How did you put the form on
    the donations page?

    Hi I have this code to enable me to create individual pages but it dosen’t
    specify what other part of the page code should be used from the
    header.php. any chance someone is able to post the code here.- I’ve created
    a page template called bb for a catogory and copied the original styIe.css
    to stylebb.css so I can change the title of that page and other stuff –
    you show how to add the word test but I can’t find anything explaining
    individual page code or where to place it.

    Where are you storing the twentyfourteen-child folder in the hierarchy?
    When I tried creating this child folder for a twentytwelve theme and added
    the page.php file. I couldn’t get it to update. However if I updated the
    page.php in the already existing twentytwelve theme folder it worked fine.
    Additionally, when I create a new page-xively.php file to customize how a
    certain page works I have to put it in the main twentytwelve theme folder.
    I just don’t quite understand how the new child folder is stored and used.
    Thanks for the great video.
