    Big Help Tyler, thanks.

    Hi Tyler,

    This is really helpful, thank you. I’m having a little trouble though with
    images – I’ve followed your steps exactly as I’m flipping between screen
    shots of your video and what I’m doing… But the 1080 x 420 image does not
    fit correctly on my website when I load it. It gets cropped resulting in
    some of the words I edited over the image being cut out. Are you sure 1080
    x 420 are the right dimensions? I keep playing around with it but I’m
    getting a little impatient. Any tips please?? Thanks!

    Tyler, this video is amazing! I have been intimidated by WP since I began
    to build a website in 5 months ago. Because of that, I switched to Weebly
    builder (easy for me). Now that I wanted to start a blog and link posts to
    an autoresponder service (Get Response), Weebly’s full blog post could not
    be read by GR. (Weebly told me they aren’t set up to interface with
    outside services). I joined a blog training program which highly
    recommends using WP. So, my host set up a subdomain for a blog on WP.
    Still intimidated and wanting to just give up, yet I am building a second
    business/website and wanted to try it on WP. My host said there are WP
    instructional videos on youtube, and that’s how I found you! I am amazed
    at the functions of WP, and you have helped me believe that I can do this.
    I’d love to support you by signing on with Host Gator, however, I’m already
    with another host! I have enough to do, without switching hosts. Thank
    you a million times over.

    so sorry to ask an irrelevant question… but does anyone know what font
    that is in the word “Vantage” (top left)?

  5. Emil Djernaes says:

    This is amazing – you truly are a man of the people! 

  6. Riki Yarbrough says:

    Awesome. I have attempted several times to teach myself in WordPress and
    have left frustrated. Came upon your video and everything came together.
    You present well, your instructions are clear, and you leave nothing out.
    Most other “helps” assume the learner already knows terminology and
    significant steps. I appreciate you not skipping any part of the set-up.
    Thank you!

  7. Barley Bre says:

    OMG. This video is AWESOME!!!! I am just starting my first business and I
    wasn’t sure I was up for the challenge of creating my own website but after
    watching this tutorial a few times, I now feel completely confident.

  8. W00t57 says:

    I first thought that WordPress wasn’t for me. I attempted to learn by
    myself maybe 4 or 5 separate times. Each time I gave up, and left it alone.
    FINALLY I decided to youtube it. YOUR THE BEST. Your videos have helped me
    immensely, I really hope you are getting donations for this. Thank you very
    much.

  9. Vue Toob says:

    Tyler do you have to pay for word press now? I am following all your steps
    and purchase the baby plan but my email and your email in the video is
    different I can download word press or access control panel. 

  10. Marius Nilsen says:

    Gonna bookmark this for tomorrow, plan to start a WordPress site based on
    the “X” theme from themeco. 

  11. Crystal Redwing says:

    This is a great video. You make this look so very easy. You are awesome!!!

  12. Kelly Morgan Merly says:

    Hi Tyler and thank you very much for this fantastic video. I made a
    beautiful website and am working now on the content. I am struggling with
    my logo. I have downloaded this
    http://thenounproject.com/term/ephemeral/60768/ from The Noun Project but
    cannot seem to drag and drop (although it acts like it is) the image. Any
    advice? I ended up substituting something for now from LogoMakr and am
    happy with that but ….

    Thanks again. It may have taken me a week in between life but I am
    thrilled with my new site! Your step by step instruction was impeccable! 

  13. Gustavo Nicala says:

    Great tutorial Tyler, really useful!

  14. Michael Herbert says:

    This is one of the best tutorials I’ve seen. I was especially fascinated
    with the external sites that you showed to modify images. I had no clue
    these tasks could be performed online. I’ve always used an external
    application.

  15. Rhys Price says:

    Tyler!
    Is it possible to add multiple pages without them appearing at the top of
    the page? I want to upload tutorials to my site but they always appear
    right at the top! I just want one page named: Tutorials Then a list to
    different ones where they can click on the one they want to without a list
    of them being at the top of the page. Thanks for the amazing tutorial as
    well. I bought a hosting right before I watched this but if I did I would
    have definitely used your code! SUBBED!!!!!

  16. Rabien Dunzar says:

    The one thing is kicking my behind is the style editor button the new
    version of advantage does not have it so i do not know how to move my boxes
    apart by adding the line as TYler did

  17. Moonstone White says:

    Very informative! Easy to understand and extremely helpful.

  18. P. Almon says:

    THIS VIDEO IS GREAT!
    But, I couldn’t find the widget you use for the video. I’m having a hard
    time putting the video. I did it in a different way but its super slow.
    So, how do you find widgets that don’t appear in the widget “box”?
    (Embedded Video (PB)).

  19. William Kho says:

    Excellent step-by-step demo on this Vantage theme. Clear and simple to
    follow.

  20. Jayy Raadd says:

    Thank you so much Tyler! I’m 13 years old and this video saved my life.
    Every thing seemed so confusing until I saw this video, Thanks again!

  21. Ron Ramsaran says:
