  1. Hello and thanks for putting this video together it has been a VERY VERY big help fro me. I am new to building wordpress sites and found you page searching through youtube. I have 2 questions if you have time.
    1. I am trying to duplicate one of the demo pages so it would be the default template for every new page i create. I like the way the “home” page template is set up. Is there a way to duplicate that page/template like 5 times then change the title of the pages about us/ contact us/ services etc?

    2. I have 2 pages that i built that are “parents” and 5 pages under each of them ( i think there called children pages??). is there a way to have those sub pages drop-down and be visible when you hover over the parent page on the primary menu?

    Thank you again for putting this video together.

    1. HI,

      Thanks for watching. In reply.

      1. Create the page and then use this really useful plugin to make a copy.

      2. Just add them to the menu (Appearance->Menus) and place them under the parent. If you drag them slightly to the right you’ll see they nest as a submenu. Hope that’s clear.

  2. hello, thanks for all your videos, they are a massive help! Ive got myself in a massive pickle and installed two themse and its made a mess. whats the quickest way to strat from scratch, delete them both off and install three clocks again please?

    1. Hi Lloyd,

      You’ve got a couple of options. 1) Delete your WordPress install from within your hosting and start again. 2) Delete the themes via FTP. I’ll try and create a video on this for you today..

      1. you’re a star Alex! thank you so much. Have subscribed to your newsletter and will be floating around regularly! 🙂

  3. hey Alex,

    my sites still a mess! content there, some not and everythings gone pete tong. so what im thinking is delete it from control panel in tso host. any chance you could do a quick video showing this please?
    I have mine open now, the cloud dashboard that is and right next to my domain it says “delete website” in red, is that the one i click?

    Thanks in advance,
    Lloyd

    1. That should do it..

      Good luck!

      If you’re worried you can raise a support ticket with TSOHOST and they’ll take you through it.

  4. Hi Alex
    I like the simplicity with your videos
    However a company built a ‘custom made’ one for me http://www.extractair.co.uk a couple of years ago with apparently I cannot change especially the pages

    I have also been told the coding and back links may also affect or ranking with google
    What would you recommend or advise?
    Look forward to hearing from you

    Regards
