Mike Konzel says:

Hi Tyler,
I would like to set an image as a background for my website (using the theme in your video).  I have downloaded various plugins and they don't seem to work.  Is there a way I can set an image for the background using the settings in the theme? Or will I need a separate plugin? If I need a separate plugin, is there a specific one I should use?

SERP Relocator says:

I love wordpress!  Thanks for your video

Vince Seeley says:

Hi Tyler. This is incredible! I just have one question and I should be able to finish a "near final revision" of my website. I noticed on one or more of your pages there was a "Leave a Reply" and Comment box at the bottom. Other pages did not have that. They just had a black footer with the words, "A SiteOrigin Theme". Who do I get rid of the "Leave a Reply" and Comment box at the bottom of my pages? Its not on my home page, but is on the other 4 pages.

Jeffrey Charles says:

Great tutorial Tyler. What size images do you recommend for photo gallery?

Hi Tyler, do you know how to make a gallery-page where the sub-categories have thumbnails? So when I make a new gallery it automatically uploads to the gallery page with a thumbnail?
