    Hi wpSculptor !
    Very helpful tutorial for me who begin to learn WordPress. Thanks. I do have one question. Are there a way that we can position the plugin in specific part of page?. For Example, I want to position the picture slider plugin below the Gallery plugin, How can I do that?

    Hello WP-Sculptor,Thank you so very much for your time and for explaining everything step by step. It has taken me a while to get up and going, but not your fault. I would NOT have made it without your video. I still have a few things to do, but will get there. Thank you again, AWESOME teacher!!

    WOW!!! You did an awesome job here! I don't even know where to start with the praise for this tutorial. I will definitely be recommending you to everyone! As a former homeschooling mom of many years ago, I would suggest you get a job teaching in a university to train all us old folks this technology that has many of us giving up after trying to understand all the jargon that we are not familiar with. However, knowing how poorly teachers anywhere are paid you are probably good right where you are. 😉 Thank you so much for your time in creating this video. Susanna

    I too only have one domain with a website already on it that I want to change to WP. Unfortunately I am unable to get the preview to show anything but my current webpage instead of the new one I am building. What am I doing wrong?

    If I have a certain look that I want for my website, then is it possible to create a wordpress site to look like what I want, in other words, be able to customize a wordpress theme totally? Alternatively if I create a website using HTML/CSS, then is there a way to add wordpress widgets to it, so that i can use the functionality?
