  1. I added a header image that is 1600×800 as suggested by the theme, but it is not responsive and most of the information on it gets cut off. I am using an image that is essentially the product’s brochure and I need it to display full width, but it does not do that.

  2. Hi Tom
    i am trying to change the icons on the features section to icons i made in logomakr and cant find out on how i do this. Can you please help me on this one.

  3. Hi Tom. Thank you for this insightful & helpful tutorial. I followed all of your easy instructions only to discover that I do not have the Front page sections panel as part of this theme I downloaded, sad & disappointingly true! Is there a reason for this or should I need to purchase it? Regardless of the fact that you mentioned in the beginning that we don’t need to pay further to complete a basic website. Your assistance is appreciated.

    Thank you Tom that is so easy to create a wordpress site. I used to think it is very difficult. Just one thing, I set the contact form email to my gmail and I didn’t receive any of the message sent from contact form. What should I do to link my gmail with the contact form?

  5. I can’t import the demo data. i’m getting this notice “No FameThemes’s themes data detected, please make sure you are using one of our theme” but i’ve installed the fame theme plugin

    Nice video… You made it look easy!

    I would like to use this theme for my website. Can you provide instructions on how to customize the buttons: "Get Started" and "Contact Now"? Say I want to change the link to another page or the hover color…etc.

    Thanks Tom. Have just used this to set up a charity website :-). You’re a star. Would love to re-instate Gallery page but guessing I’ll have to upgrade? Thanks again.

    Hi Tom ! When I click on my admin URL it says "This site can’t be reached" What can I do about it ? Than you !

  23. Hi! Good Work i love it ! But i have a big question… how can i resize a page ? like about page…cause i want to add more text !

  24. Nice tutorials
    however, I was unable to "import demo data" with a notice message "Notice: No FameThemes’s themes data detected, please make sure you are using one of our theme." Can you suggest how to solve this issue ? Thanks

  25. Luukka Entertainment

    Thank You !! It was very helpful, I followed your every step and it was very easy to understand. Keep up the work !!

  26. great vid but beware, hiding the footer link by changing the background color could get you flagged by search engines

  27. Hey Tom! I followed your Tutorial and i loved it, though i have one question: Is it possible to have the video in the lightbox come without the suggested videos in the end. I know this can be done easily with embedding but I’m not sure when it comes to copy paste the link.

    Help would be appreciated

  28. Installing the theme…

    The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

    Theme install failed.

  29. Anybody else figure out a way to make the Video LightBox play a YouTube video and block related videos at the end? Using YouTube short URLs so the ?rel=0 at the end isn’t an option because this thing for some reason requires the long &watch= URL and adding &rel=0 at the end of the long URL just causes the video not to play at all.
