I am working on locaslhost and getting error with SSL olugin."Really Simple SSL failed to detect a valid SSL certificate. If you do have an SSL certificate, try to reload this page over https by clicking this button:". Do you know why?
Hi Adam, I am so excited to have come across your tutorial. Exactly what I was looking for, and I subscribed.
Adam, something is bothering me though: The large black (English) banner across the page is a real distraction and it actually hides a lot of what you're showing throughout the tutorial. Is it removable? I couldn't see any X's on the corners the close it. Please help, I am very interested in watching the tutorial, but it seems almost impossible with that thing in the middle. Thanks.
Thank you for this video my friend. This was very helpful and informative. I appreciate the time and effort you put into your videos. I went ahead and subscribed to your channel as well. Thank you once again.
Hi, thank you for the wonderful video. I just started but I was hit with a problems when I try to change the logo. When I change the logo. The logo either come out 2 logo or the logo did not change at all and still show DNK. Can you help me please
I think the themes for DNK has a bug. Because every time I insert the logo, It will duplicate itself into 2 logos at the same place. Or Sometimes, the new logo does not come out and the old logo DNK is still showing.
This video has been excellent, though I'm trying to make a variable product that has a lot of options and hitting some issues. I want to have a product that is a discounted pack of my other products where the costumer can choose what makes up the pack. For the first one it is a 4 pack, the the costumer can pick 4 products from a line that has 7 products. Where I'm running into an issues is the number of variations it generates. Do I need to generate variations if the cost is the same regardless?
It's December 16, 2018 and the theme didn't install with the latest version of WordPress, version 5.0.1. I got an error message when I tried installing the "brandstore" theme so I tried downgrading the version to 4.9.8 but got a different error message so I created a site on localhost using version 4.9.8 and the theme installed ok from there. I then upgraded to 5.0.1 and uploaded the site to the cpanel. It looks to be working ok now.
Hi Adam, thanx so much for this video, this looks like the perfect design for my site but i have an existing site and when i tried to import the theme an error came that said [object object] Can you help me understand what i need to change in my old design in order to import the new theme?
Need to pay for logos ?
WTF is wrong with you ?
You didn't sleep last night :))
With that money, I buy in my country, a brand new used car. :)
I think the age when people were spending money on anything, has gone, long time a go...
hey i was building an ecommerce website by following your video , everything was going well but the pictures on the main page are disappeared . I have searched for options of the images but couldnt find it . How can i get the images back or replace them wih another pictures ?
The SSL certificate issue is something I am running into now - just reached that position on your tutorial... popcorn, Coke, feet up, lol (Only kidding). I have hosted client sites with the same company for a number of years but now it is £100+VAT (20%) to have an SSL installed per client domain. If I supply and install my own SSLs then they will charge £50+VAT to provide a dedicated IP address. Will be looking around for different hosting reseller account I think. My present clients are very small companies, not sure they would like the added expense for an SSL. Watching as one client supplies garden products onsite but not onlne... yet, but I am sure they would like an online range of stock display for their customers.
Can you PLEASE specify how to change the images? Especially the Background image???? It has been asked several times, and you just say that you covered it, but never say where...... I watched the video, and didn't see it either. I think that there were a lot of things that you covered that could have been left out, and a lot of things that you left out that you could have covered. That should have probably been one of the first things that you covered. Sometimes, things seem trivial to those that know how, but since you made a 4 hour video,.....
This is such great content, thank you so much! A friendly suggestion. Could you please break out your videos into sections per the learning objectives you said we will achieve? Its a lot of content and a little time consuming to search through everything you are teaching us. All the best!
Hello Adam I have just found your video and found what you have said about hostgator very important as on the 2nd November I went with their hosting services
I purchased the baby package which states I get an SSL certificate for free but when I emailed to ask if it was to be on all of my websites or one moving forward I had no response.. I was actually watching a video similar to this which encouraged me to buy unfortunately but I guess that's how it goes sometimes.. You just have to take the loss.. But when my services are to be renewed can I take my Websites elsewhere without losing anything?? Many thanks E.
Amazing tutorial series. Just one question, inMotion hosting has specific wordpress hosting service but in this tutorials you have opted for standard hosting instead, is it because the specific wordpress service is not suitable for wooCommerce?
I dont have the site identity tab in the free version... is there another way to change the logo? => found the option to change it :D click on the pen in the left side of the logo. Thank you so much for the tutorial , it is aswome!!!
Hi Adam, I am trying to figure out how to remove two of the four footer widgets area. I am customizing the exact theme used in your tutorial, but I cannot figure out how. I would appreciate your help. Thanks much.
I have a question, at around 2:12:40 I clicked publish and the changes were made but when I logged out of wordpress to look at the changes it was like the same as it was before I did anything, do you know what happened?
I have been watching your very impressive full depth tutorial of Online store with Elementor & Astra. I have watched some of your other tutorials also. You are definitely the Best about WordPress related tutorials. God Bless!! I am working on making a promotional Products website - So there are minimum quantities. Like Want to buy personalized pens - Minimum quantity would 50 or 100 or 150 - Depends on the type of product and there could be a setup charge for imprint on the pen. Is there a plugin for WooCommerce and suggesting the client similar products. Look forward to hearing from you soon. I can buy the pro version if required using your links.
Also is there a way to make a child theme for Astra & Elementor - so that the changes won't create a problem.
Look forward to hearing your response.
Hi I just watched and followed your video but I have 1 problem and 2 questions. My problem is I need a Search Products Button in my header, I have tried to figure how to copy the link of the one in the footer but no luck. I will have to find another theme if I can't fix this problem Please help. I used the same site you did your demo with. my 2 questions are about two plug ins you told people to upload but I never heard anything about them in the demo other than upload and wait until late itheme amd updraft. Please Help TY
Thanks for the feedback. i don't have personal opinion about storefront, although my current online store is built on it - it seems that is the most common choice. i am a big fun of elementor - i have redesign my blog using it with oceanwp which gave me a hard time in some configurations which were solved using the elementor's hello theme. However, the hello theme seems to lack in eCommerce, also Elementor is not there yet, for example your checkout or your card pages are really really ugly.
Thanks for the tutorial - i will give it a try and will let you know!
Great tutorial, thank you a lot. It took about couple of weeks to assimilate this knowledge, but it really worth it.
I had already finished basic courses for html, css, js+jquery, php, mysql & wordpress, but only now I see how quickly it's possible to export a whole prebuilt site, quickly customize it and get a valuable ready product. This process looks so quickly, I cannot wait when I start to make real freelance projects.
Thank you again.
Hi Adam, love all your videos. We are blessed to have you. I am doing a site for a company and we are going to be purchasing Astra/EElementor/WooCommerce. On your link it gives a price, but it's confusing. Link: https://www.wpcrafter.com/astra-theme-discount-offer/ Is that price for Astra itself? We want the lifetime agency. So the price on the page is that for that? When we go to purchase the link takes us to Astra and it's back to regular price. Just confused. Is the price on your page for Astra or just for courses? Thank you, I know your a busy guy :)
Yes sorry, I figured that out after posting. It is so hard to decide on a theme etc. So many things to look at. Do you also support Storefront? I am planning on making our purchases through your links if you have the links so I can get the courses. I was sent an email on Storefront which I know nothing about. We do plan on using WooCommerce, so now they have just made it harder for me when we had planned on making the decision tonight during a screen share. Thanks for all your input. And btw, price is not an issue, we just want to get good products and customer support. A beautiful website that offers products that we can show off nicely. website with a blog... chat...suggested items...etc

My name is ShahRukh and i am from Pakistan.
and i am building an e-commerce website for Pakistan and i need your help in checkout settings.
So i want to know that we can add other checkout extensions like 2checkout.

*JazzPay or MobiPay

Your reply will b highly appreciated.
Thank you in advance for all you help.

Once again thank you.
i'm struggling to add the products I've created to various pages. the products only appear on the store page. i'm using astra and elementor on wordpress. could you please show me how to add products to different pages and also how to customise the appearance of the products. thank you
+WPCrafter.com WordPress For Non-Techies I'm happy for all the different products to appear on the store page... But for instance if I've created a page specifically for jeans and another for tops how can I add those separate products to those specific pages
This is the best piece of content marketing that I will ever see, thank you so much.... you are so clear and just amazing.... I will definitely make use of your affiliate links and If I am looking for something and you sell it I wil without a doubt buy it from you!

Bricolajul a ajuns in Romania in urma cu aproximativ 10 ani, insa in Statele Unite si in statele occidentale acest concept este mai vechi, si isi are originile la inceputul anilor ’50. Bricolajul se refera la capacitatea oamenilor de a crea sau repara diverse obiecte fara a apela la ajutor specializat.
Primul catalog de bricolaj pentru renovarea locuintei a aparut in 1968. Acesta a nascut conceptul de bricolaj care sta la baza lanturilor de magazine din zilele noastre. De la covoare si perdele, pana la mobilier si prefabricate, bricolajul se refera la tot ce inseamna renovarea unei locuinte in aceasta acceptiune.
Pe orlo.ro gasesti toate cataloagele de bricolaj, de la cei mai importanti comercianti. Catalog Dedeman, Catalog Praktiker, Catalog Baumax, Catalog Bricostore, Catalog Ambient si altii.
In Romania retelele de magazine pentru bricolaj sau extins rapid, cel mai important comerciant din acest segment este Dedeman, care a pornit din orasul Bacau si a ajuns sa detina magazine in cele mai importante orase din tara.
