My name is Mark.

I live in Christchurch, New Zealand and am very proud of it.

I've been a WA for a ridiculously long time, since I was 15. I'm now 19 and actually have the time now to make this stuff work properly.

Hi Mark, hope you are ok, need help with FTP trying to upload HTML pages to my website, however I am unsure where to transfer the files into, which directory?
Thanks for your help

Hello, Mark your tutorial is great. I personally tried it but I had an error connecting with my server, that is my website was not responding. Please can you explain why that happened.

I will appreciate your reply. Thanks so much.

Hi Mark:
Im looking for tuition (paid, of course) to improve the look of my sites..
Ive seen yours which looks rather professional.
Im practically a newbie, thats why I need personal help to improve quickly.
Could you be interested? I was thinking of some e-mailed lessons at a comfortable pace and compatibly with your schedule.
Im giving you address of my sites so that you can see if there is something you can and want to do:
Thank you

Mark, thanks for the explanation of custom menus. What I did was make an entire new main menu. I'm going to look further to make sure this approach won't bite me in the bum later down the road.

The reason I did that is each time I created a page and it went to the original main menu, the navigation label of the page showed up in the text of the page/post. I did not want that so I've done what I've done.

I used the custom link method to create all my menu items. My only concern is that this may be a problem down the road. I don't know enough to understand potential issues with this.

Mark, you are my hero and you don't even know it. I have been trying to upload an awesome( I hope) theme called Morpheus that I purchased from Themeforest....2 days now.I have been struggling...They said that if the admin panel load doesn't work ( and it didn't, although I tried dozens of times) try loading it via FTP. I am pretty good at learning tech stuff, eventually, and I follow directions well but it wasn't until I stumbled across your FILEZILLA tutorial that I was successful. I had been using Filezilla but the transfers kept failing. I knew I was missing something and your detailed instructions pointed it out for me. As I suspected, it fell into the category of DUH! LOL because most of my mistakes in life have been DUH! mistakes if not Homer Simpson DOAH!! mistakes. LOL Anyway, I ramble, as usual. So THANK YOU FOR THE TUTORIAL, MATE!!!! You saved my neck..............John p.s. It's still a mystery to me why I couldn't load it on the admin panel. ???
For someone so young, you are doing great, you will go places, thanks for all the info.

Hey Mark,

Just wanted to let you know that there is some outdated content in the following tutorial:


It still refers to the plesk interface within WA. You may want to remove that section and update to represent it to the current system here. Hope all is well buddy! :)

Mark I've just mooched over and looked at your child theme tutorial which is my topic of the moment. I know the WA file manager bit is a bit out of date but it's really a great tutorial. I love the way you take everything step by step and how reassuring you are for people who may not be entirely comfortable at first. Bloomin great job!
