    I’m just getting into WordPress Theme creation and this has helped me so much, there is a lot of documentation out there on the web about customising WP but the bulk of it is written for people who have a stronger understanding of PHP code than I.
    Even trying to ask the right questions about altering WP to create individual pages like this has been hard, thank you so much.

    Sorry – YouTube won’t let me add the code into the comments. The code snippets are all in my blog post, which is linked to in the description of this video above and to the right.

    Ok, can’t add the code into the comments either. The code is in my blog post, which is linked to in the description of this video above and to the right.

    Man, I can’t figure out how to post a link to my blog with the code. And YouTube won’t let me post code in the comments either. If you go to my Expand2Web Blog linked to in the video description, you can get the code snippet from there…

    You’re right dougk710 – I posted the code on my blog but it looks like YouTube will not let me put the URL to my blog post in the comment. I’ll just try to add the code below in a comment.

    Hi You said you would help if people left a comment, 1 year ago people asked about the php coding . Have you put this up anywhere? Thanks Doug

    Would be very helpful if I could see the php coding.

    Great stuff! The only problem with the video is that I cannot see the PHP codes in the editor! Is it possible to post the codes in reply to this comment? It will sure help!
