Good morning good afternoon Kyle I was wondering if you can help me I just watched the lesson but it seemed like I can't get past the error on this one part i'm hoping you can help me get past it why is it saying error this would be greatly appreciated thank you.

You need to choose one that's not registered previously :)

That aside, I noticed your domain title has a book titled the same.

"Conceive it! Believe It! Achieve it!
Book by Judith A. Williamson and Napoleon Hill
4.8/5 · Amazon .it
AUTHORISED BY THE NAPOLEON HILL FOUNDATION"

That could be an issue.... The domain name is available to purchase

How do I get around that? Do I have to now create another domain name?

No just add a new webmail

Websites top menu > Site manager > Site Email https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites/email

With a different author like 'arthur1" or other

Hello Abie I'm truly sorry to bother you at this time but I really need some assistance I'm a little confused with this now I have two users when I log into my website I'm trying to get rid of one or I can just start over and about the other issue that you showed me about I don't know how to just really go about it I'm trying to follow the instructions but it's just not working at this time but I ran You know it's a little frustrating being a beginner like I am but I'm hoping I'll get through this where I can further get into the lessons
1) Trying to remove the admin and put my name right there
2) Second if I could put my face on the second one that would be good too that's what I was trying to follow instructions and follow the videos but it's just not working out maybe I'm doing something wrong
3) regarding the email as you see I'm trying to put it in there but that's the email I have so if I'm doing something wrong please enlighten me this would be greatly appreciated thank you.

You'll have a separate webmail for the other one. Also, you must log in to one webmail to access the other... You cannot log in both webmails in the same browser. Alternatively, use a different browser.

Your image is looking good :)

I am glad you had it figured out.

CONGRATS :)

Please type your name, then choose it from the drop-down menu.

I created a new user in WP, but I didn't write down my username and password, which I can find anyway. Now, when I sign in to the back office, I get this screen. If I click on Admin, it goes right to WP, but if I click on Janice, it wants a username and password. What should I do?

You can click synchronize. There was no harm there - it would reset.

Thank you for your help and advice. I clicked synchronize, but I was unsure if that was okay. Thanks for the reassurance.

You are most welcome, Janice!

I need to do this thanks for the direction and the video.

Yes, get your own user in place for your website. This way when you publish your content, it will be much more personalized.

Thanks very much Kylesm counting on you, in the journey to success

Absolutely, happy to help you out Richard and get you moving in the right direction with your website/brand. ;)

Thanks for this tutorial, Kyle. It's very helpful in terms of personalization.

No problem!
