Reviews of Building Custom WordPress Sites from Scratch

  1. Posted by Philippe Dorvil| March 26, 2016

    Easy to follow.

  2. Posted by Dr David Poulton| March 03, 2016

    As someone new to WordPress I found this course allowed me to come up to speed quickly and confidently. Instruction was plain, easy to follow and explanations were given to questions the student might pose. If you are considering working with WordPress then this course is for you.

  3. Posted by Itay Avitan| March 02, 2016

    good course, but the instructor dosent answer at al....

  4. Posted by Lindee Goodall| February 27, 2016

    Very thorough, well organized and planned. A little slow and a bit tedious if you already have some experience but seems to be well-paced for a beginner.

  5. Posted by Daniel Rodriguez| February 22, 2016

    Love tutorials from this guy!!!

  6. Thanks! I learned a lot
    Posted by Anneke Visser| November 12, 2015

    Because this course goes through the entire process, it really helped me al lot. The teachers explains very well. Because I followed along with him, i noticed that some parts are not up-to-date anymore. That parts I had to improvice.

  7. Slightly outdated
    Posted by Claus Fenger| August 29, 2015

    It shows that the course is a few years old but then again, didn't I get it cheap? It requires that you have both Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop and know how to use them. This ought to be written in the course description. Apart from all that, it is a thorough and excellent course.

  8. Great Course, But...
    Posted by Stuart Mono| August 11, 2015

    Geoff is a great instructor but the course needs some updating. The events calendar widget doesn't work anymore and needs a replacement. The screen captures could be sharper. Two other things should be addressed: 1. Use of child themes 2. How to find the appropriate code to modify a particular section. Other than that, lots of good info.

  9. Terrible waste of my time and money
    Posted by Brian Fromknecht| August 06, 2015

    You're better off learning it yourself from a tree.

  10. Great course for wordpress novices
    Posted by Andy Bunyan| July 25, 2015

    I know some coding html and css so this course was ideal as it covers adding coding to parts of your Wordpress site as you build it. The lessons are easy to follow and very clear. Very happy and i now have skills I can take with me. Thanks :-)
