    Are you able to download the zip, extract, and then go through wordpress to install. Go to themes>install> and then upload the theme from there or do you have to use a ftp client?

  2. I can’t figure out how to get smart FTP to work. It won’t let me connect to wordpress so that I can do the stuff in this video. How do I set it up?

    Hi, I followed your instructions, but the theme I uploaded I can’t find in the control panel in wordpress and I went through all of them.Any suggestions?

    • Hi Amber. If it’s not showing up in your control panel, you didn’t upload it properly. My only suggestion is to watch the video again, and see where you may have gone wrong. If you still can’t figure it out, perhaps contact your web host for advice.

  4. Hi Michael,

    If I buy the WP-Prolific, is there a provision in it to place a standard Aweber
    Name & email address optin/subscribe form.

    Can I also embed YouTube video(s) on the home page and other pages ? Are these facilities already available within the theme or will you code it accordingly for the buyer after purchase ?

    • Yes, you can use your own email subscription form. Just paste the code via the theme settings page.

      You can embed Youtube videos in any page, post or sidebar widget. That’s part of WordPress standard functionality regardless of theme. Just paste in the embed code provided by Youtube.

      Depending on how you set up your home page, the video may or may not appear there. If you need help making customizations after purchase, we can do so for an added fee.
