  3. Oh, Ferdi – you are a real life-saver! I'm only 20 mins in to this but already I have learned so much and had many questions answered. You are clear in what you do – no whizzing the cursor around and assuming we understand what you are doing, like so other similar videos. Thanks, man!

  18. Hi Ferdy. I am watching a few WordPress tutorials and so far yours is great. However you have used the word 'Plugins' numerous times without explaining beforehand what plugins actually are. I know roughly what they are because they were explained in another tutorial I watched. Just a comment from a learners point of view. Thanks.

  19. I can't click on the time stamps in the description. ?

  20. Dear Ferdy, regards. Practicing the footer bar area as in the video, using Astra theme, I noted that Disclaimer and Policies links do not open in a new tab. Can you guide me please?

  21. Ferdy, Thank You I am really learning a lot but are unindated with options now. Please advise me on what to do up until now everything I have used is free but I need some plugins. Where will I upgrade Elementor, Astra or Envato. I can only upgrade 1 at a time if I need to do more upgrades than 1. My question is do I go Pro on Elementor, Astra or buy an Envato site?

  22. Thanks Ferdy.. finally in THIS video you tell about the handles in Elementor and how to show them, made things so easy for me now.. thanks (From Australia)

  33. Hi Ferdy, I'm trying to add the widget for Easy Facebook likebox and it's not coming up for me in WordPress. Do you know if it is still an option? Thank you, Dana

  34. Hi Fredy,
    liked this astra theme but main problem is that the header is not sticky in free version as in Sydney (Sticky header is very important at current days). Was able to stick it but problem creates while scrolling down, header turns transparent & create looks ugly. Will appreciate if u share solution of it (to disable header transparency).

  35. I have more than 4 testimonials…is it possible to have a looping carousel for testimonials? How do people add their testimonial? I have Astra Pro and Elementor Pro.
