    Thank you :) I now record with Camtasia 2. I used to use the Quicktime
    player. I edit everything with iMovie. My microphone is the standard one
    you get with an iPod

    Not quite just yet – I’m slowly making my way through while developing –
    like I said, kid in a candy store! XP Would I throw it in a widget area or
    something? I’d like to give the user a way to integrate with page template,
    while allowing for a docking mechanism for themify’s builder (hard part) –
    and also have easy control over the show settings from the user interface.
    If you do have a direct reference that would help immensely.

    @ricardo8snehpets I should have stated that this is an overview video. It’s
    not meant to be memorized. I create the WordPress theme from scratch in
    Wordpress Theme Tutorial Pt 4

    I’m still a beginner in PHP, I don’t understand most of it. I’m trying to
    figure out where to customize my theme.

    @CustomizeWordpress Thank you. I can’t believe nobody else has made a
    Wordpress Theme video tutorial? For free anyway

  9. Derek Banas

    I definitely won’t disagree with that :)

    That was a sweet video. Almost to much info to fast it seemed but as always
    its your teaching style that makes it stick. I got it. I was studying the
    syntax and thought up a few question about how the code reads through from
    HTML to PHP to Javascript to display the HTML as required by the condition
    set on the current page; but, those questions may work themselves out in
    the next videos. By that time I’ll be better versed to ask the questions
    properly. I be watching.

    Sure does. I appreciate the quick reply. I had seen your localhost
    tutorial, but I already had xampp done. I’ll redo the localhost. Thanks.

    Hey Mike,

  24. siavashpan

    This is a great tutorial. But for some reason the template file does not
    show up under the attribute drop-down of the front page or page… Any idea
    why that might be the case?

    @skillssaysitall I previously created a site in HTML and tried to use this
    method to attach a blog page. Just did not work and upset the settings of
    my site. I’m sure it’s exactly because of what you noted. Let me know if
    you get an answer.

    WordPress is great CMS both for beginners and professionals. And it’s great
    that there are tutorials like this. At the moment, we are creating our own
    WordPress tutorials. Maybe we can give you a video response? We would be
    glad to you one.

  28. fight2Bfree

    A better title would be :”Look at my website, isn’t it cool” It doesnt show
    how to create anything

  29. S Shams

    Great! Thank you for HELP!

  30. skillssaysitall

    Did I miss a step? You said create an HTML home page but on your tutorial
    it’s a PHP home page. Do I need to convert the HTML page to PHP? Also could
    you type the php coding you put on the top of the page in your description
    box. Can’t tell if there are spaces or not. Noob…sorry.
