    Once again awesome stuff. I want to add your videos were instrumental in me landing my first clients a few years back. I know the videos are focused on DIY but many small businesses simply don't have the time, patience etc and are willing to shell out $ for someone to do it for them (just like me when I need home repairs ); your videos helped me launch a nice side hustle that I'm passionate about. Thanks!

    I would like to send you an email concerning building this site. Let me add, you are an incredible instructor since I met you in 20113. I hope the email address you provided in one of your many tutorials is active. I will refer to this note in the subject. Thank you for your time and consideration….

  3. Harrison Kone

    My WordPress dashboard doesn’t look the same and isn’t allowing me to install plugins without a pro plan. Did something change in the 4 months since this video launched?

  4. Heidi Muller

    This is the best tutorial I have ever watched or seen. You are an architect! Thanks so much.

  5. Jayne Carter

    Thank you so very much for this video!!! I went from not having a clue and paying for a website I had no idea how to use and publish for 9 months to now having a bit of confidence to actually designing my very own website!!!! Thank you once again!!!!

  10. Manav Nigam

    This is like the third or fourth time I’m taking help from your videos to develop/design a website in the past 7 years. You’ve been spot on and amazing since day 1! Thank you so much for efforts and for your love towards development! 😎😎

  11. Jennifer Loffer

    I tried following your tutorial. I got all the way to editing the page. I tried to drag and drop elements (i.e. buttons, paragraph, etc.) and it doesn't do anything. I get a circle with a line through it basically showing me I'm not allowed to do this function. Is there a setting I can fix?

  12. Ysabel Ortiz

    Thank you so much!!!!! You took something that seemed difficult and made it super simple. Thank you a million times.

  13. Sorabouken2

    Damn, wordpress won't allow me to add plug-ins without upgrading to the $200 yearly plan </3. I've already spent nearly $100 on the domain and hosting plan

  14. Great Ataene

    Can you pleaseeee do a video of how to make an a mobile app for android and ios

  15. Mancho

    You guys took hundreds and hundreds of hours to make the best video out there. 1000 thumbs up. Thanks so much

  16. It's wonderful and i will like to access on this to learn more how to build website for mysel!

  17. christina joy

    This just changed my life. I almost cried. ha! Seriously. Thank you!

  18. Anne

    Thank you so much for sharing so much knowledge for free! It saved me A LOT of time and money. And I'm super excited that I know how to build my own website now.

  19. Jordan Standridge

    Hey Tyler, thanks for your video. I was wondering if there was a way to do a slideshow where each slide has its own button/links/texts? May even have a short video in one and then pictures on a loop which could be links to a page or advertisements? thanks again!

  20. Can you show how to add google ads on your website to monetize the traffic, and earn money with your website ? I remember a awesome tutorial you made couple of years ago where there was some Hero 5 camera promotion video , showing in the background of a webpage, like a video from youtube in the background , i was amazed. I have an idea to promote veganism on a webpage and i will build it watching your tutorial, i want people to realize they should not eat corpses of animals , that veganism is the future. that cows eat grass and converti it to meat, so we should just eat grass instead of meat, the only difference is the taste 🙂 I would also love to see how to make ads on google , like ads for mobile and desktop , i want to promote my vegan page with ads .

  21. Jaiden Cristobal

    I have a question what differences would there be if you wanted to build websites for other people ?

  22. You’re the best! So thankful that at 64 years old I was able to create a website with no technical or computer experience.. but with your detailed information I was able to follow you after I deleted 3 attempted websites and calling bluehost many times for support lol 😆.. now my last question can I still go back and edit few things like removing the icon and improve the pages ? Again a million thanks! As you said we saved thousand after your teaching and you are very right! 👍🙏

  23. Alejandro Pena

    I think as speak for many when we are about our build our firs website, and really thank you, I will be coming back to your video to follow the steps. until then!! thank you!!!

  24. Matheus Faria

    Hey, Tyler. Is it possible to get a discount when re-hosting (changing plans in hostgator?) the prices are way higher to change the plans, than to contract a new one. If i contract a new one, is it possible to migrate everything to the new plan?

  25. Marcie Miller

    This was super helpful – until I tried to customize the header. When I switch from Elementor back to WP to customize the header it says "page doesn't seem to exist. It looks like the link pointing here was faulty." It "finds" all the other pages, just not the home page. I even tried deleting all the information for that theme and uploading another one. Same thing. Any thoughts?


    and hosting I went through your link, you deserved it.

  27. Hananiah Joe

    Easy and fun but I was wondering, why did you not talk about the contact part??

  28. I can't for the life of me, make the image in the about me page show on the mobile option. I did exactly what you suggested but nothing! :/ any ideas why?
    Thank you so much for this video! You are a life saver!!! ❤️ I appreciate you so much!!!

  29. Dave Shents

    Tyler, great video and content however when I attempt to download the nature website template via starter templates I get as far as build your website, select elementor, select Nature and click skip and continue then my page just goes blank. I click on refresh which brings up the skip and continue page again. When I click again same thing happens page goes blank. Any suggestions would be a great help to first time webpage builder.

  30. Paul deMena

    This is an excellent video! Because I followed your example, step-by-step, I was able to overcome the steep learning curve that is WordPress for Beginners! You taught the important points, and wasted no time before moving on to the next point. Some folks who produce instructional videos on YouTube seem to forget the viewer can pause or replay if he/she needs more time. But you just keep going, which is great. We can stop when we are confused, or keep moving forward when we're good to go. I also really like the way you stand in front of what I assume is a green-screen like a weather forecaster and point to stuff. That's a nice touch. Sterling work! I am deeply grateful.

  31. Kaveen Pasindumal

    Thank you so much brother..This is the coolest tutorial I've ever seen in youtube about wordpress.It helped me a lot to improve my skills..Thanks a lot

  32. A Versaggi

    Thank you for providing this tutorial it provides great information! After following it, I am still unable to get the mobile version to show as it shows in Elementor. In Elementor while editing, the background image shows up and the header menu includes the logo. However, when I open it on a mobile device, there is no background image and the header section just shows the site title and the site icon. Any suggestions for correcting this?


    thanks a lot. it so a practical video. I learn a lot of things. thank you

  34. HerneeMix

    Tyler, thanks a lot for this video, your explanations are so clear and easy to follow. Let me ask you a couple of questions if you don't mind. What if, instead of having different pages for every section (about, services, etc) , I want to have it all in the home page, so you scrolled down and navigate it that way? And if you click on any section of the transparent header, it just scrolls down to the section. Is it a bad idea in terms of time loading of the website? Thanks in advance.
