+Yvonne F Brown Hi Yvonne, I just checked my demo site and the Customize
panel works well, so it may be your installation. I’m using Customizr
version 3.1.22. Perhaps you can try re-installing the theme? Also, I’m
using WordPress 4.0 which was just released today. Finally, there are
sometimes plugin issues – perhaps try turning off all plugins temporarily,
then checking the Customize panel to see if it works, then turn on plugins
one at a time to see which one is causing the issue. Hope this helps.

I actually took a class about web designing and yet, our professor never
really taught us the actual SET-UP of a WordPress site that is created
through a hosted domain name. I am a graphic designer, and starting my own
little company / website, and this video truly saved my life. Thank you,

Terry Elston says:

Thank you for very clear instructions Katrina! On the new version of
Customizr, there doesn’t see to be the extensive choice on pages and posts
for things like turn comments on or off. I look in the customizit left hand
side bar under comments etc but still could’t see how to turn on and off
comments in new version. In your videos, the boxes are obviously simply
under the blogs themselves….

Victor James Sr says:

Katrina, I posted this question a few days ago and yet, it doesn’t appear
in the thread of comments/questions below…at the 1:09:48 mark you
demonstrate how to use WordPress to create the code to place the pic and
caption for the pic in the lower left corner of the footer. I followed your
instructions to the letter, but I have code information displayed along
with the caption. How do you remove the unwanted code from the caption?

This is a great video. Thanks for making it and sharing it! I have an
inkling that you might be Canadian based on your accent.

WordOnWheels says:

has something changed with customizr ? i add new page and edit it and leave
discussion checked as well as allow comments and allow trackback and
pingbacks ( whatever they are ) and on the page after publish / update
there is no area for anyone to leave comment, i deactivate and reactivate
all my active plugins and uncheck and recheck the discussion and allow
comments etc and update back n forth, but still no spot for anyone on the
page to leave comment, is there a fix for this ?

Celeste Booysen says:

Hi Katrina, great video! I’m having trouble pasting text in onto my pages
though, a message comes up on the screen saying that pasting is in plain
text mode and will paste as plain text until option is toggled off…how do
I fix this?

Dave Watkns says:

Awesome video. Learned so much on using the WordPress Customizr theme. I
only wish I had seen the video prior to undertaking the creation of the
website on my own. Oh the hours I of self-teaching would have been greatly
reduced. Again, THANK YOU!!!

Oscar Lopez says:

OMG Katrinah, you make it look so goooood and simple… I’ve looked at this
videos several times now to really capture the ideas. Have a question, Can
you add music to this type of web site to make it even more customized< I think it would be really cool. At this point I'm just getting ideas to create by the end of the month. Pls let me know and congrats, you are a real pro at this. Thank you for your time and for sharing your knowledge. Oscar

Stafon Levine says:

Katrina… is there any way to change the height of the slider. By default
its 500px, but I prefer to have it have that size IF POSSIBLE. I have
tried to edit the php files from 500 to 225, but that didn’t seem to
work. Thanks in advance. BTW… EXCELLENT VIDEO!!! 

Denise Szelagowski says:

I cannot find “Jetpack Comment” plug in. I don’t think its offered anymore.
Is there another plug-in you would recommend?
