blINK Manga says:

yes this helped so much instead of using a free website builder as a comic
artist i wanted to do things on my own. I will make sure I forward this
video and your work once I get my site established. 

Bruce Bush says:

Thanks Courtney! Everything worked out perfectly! I didn’t have a clue as
to how to get this up and running. But I constantly kept reading about:
“WordPress this” and “WordPress that”. So I’ve spent practically the whole
day getting this going, looking for someone who could guide me on the
install. Finally came across your video, and just did what you said. So
thanks a lot! Now it’s time to figure out what all the fuss is about! :-)

Suzanne Podzemny says:

Thank you! That was amazingly easy!

Matt Dyer says:

Courtney, very awesome tutorial bro – cheers for that. Can I ask a dumb
question? How do I import a site into my ‘offline’ wordpress app so I can
do some editing practice?

stroiane says:

You’re a great teacher. You remember that many people are just learning,
we’re not already experts. Personally speaking, that helps bring me up to
speed faster since I don’t have to spend time looking up info to keep
up.Thanks for sharing.

Kate Katrina says:

When I click one Localhost it says ‘Forbidden. You don’t have permission to
access / on this server.’
I’ve searched for help but nothing seems to work.
I’m using Windows 8.

Thank you Brazley! God Bless you 

Morgan JT says:

Followed everything … just can’t log in …
It keeps coming up as ‘Invalid Username’ but it’s the username that I just
added … when I went to lost password … fill in the email that I used
… it said there is no user registered with that email …
Suggestion please?
It keeps happening the same thing and this is where I get stuck and can’t
go any further

Alex Udell says:

thank you!!

Anita Potts says:

Thank you, very helpful.:)

SuperTezze says:

Thank you my friend!

Larry Meade says:

Excellent WordPress instructions, Thanks alot! But you said to uncheck
whether or not you wanted your site or blog to search engine friendly. I am
assuming that once you are satisfied with your final results you can then
go back and make it friendly to search engines…. Correct me if I am wrong

Ross Yang says:

thanks a lot 

Andrea Carlton says:

OMG…I am not a tech friendly person and your video is the easiest to
follow…i hope you have one for creating member profiles for social sites

Guy Eshet says:

Thanks a lot Courtney, you saved me some precious time!
