Superb. Thank you so much.

Santiago Cardoso says:

Would you please be kind enough to provide the link to download and install the "types – custom fields and custom post types management" plugin because for some reason is not installed at the time we install the SYDNEY theme. I don't see it in the plugin list and it not on the left side task bar. Would you please ?? Thank you we will appreciate.

The demo content is not supporting. Its giving this error.
Sorry, there has been an error.
This does not appear to be a WXR file, missing/invalid WXR version number


Someone please help me. I have downloaded activated and deactivated but there is no TYPES tab, I really have no idea what else I could do differently, I have watched it a few times now and nothing changes.

helen hward25 says:

Hi, when I attempt to title a service I get the following message "Your theme’s template file for displaying Service items is missing custom fields." . Are you able to suggest why? I am using WordPress V4.5.3

For what ever reason I don't have the services,employee's, and the testimonials on the sidebar of the WordPress dashboard for the sydney theme. How do I get those since I am building this site from the tutorial.

Tara Chandi says:

This video is of no help. You don't explain why you choose what you choose. Its simply a bunch of instructions you're asking us to follow with no reasoning. How can we learn without understanding what we're learning

Mohamed Ouz says:

Heather Fairbanks says:

@NYCTechClub, I'm wondering if you could give me advice with the website I created. I just did all the updates that it required, and now the text that is on the slider on the front page is up to the left rather than in the middle where it is supposed to go. Do you have any tips? Here is the site:

Nadine Beveridge says:

I've taken the new updated steps but now have even more trouble with the same thing happening to the front end of my testimonials! – But it doesn't stop there, -"The Testimonials archive of your theme is missing custom fields." I think i'm going to have to start again.
