[hr] Testimonials

“Thank you SOOO much for making the Whitelight videos…they totally solved every question I had. I followed along step by step, and after a little while I had gotten my entire site set up! You saved me so much time and made things so easy…I don’t know how to thank you enough.  I think it’s quite safe to say that I would never ever figured out how to get all those Woo-Component steps done unless you walked me through it and showed me exactly what to do.

Whitelight is so much more complicated than Headlines was…so I even though I had built WordPress blogs before, I found myself completely lost with this new theme (but Whitlelight is so great I just had to use it!). The WooThemes tutorials were no help at all because they’re so general, and Whitelight has about a million special tricks. Now that WordPress and Woo Framework are getting more and more sophisticated, I’ll definitely profit from watching all your other WordPress video tutorials, too.”

“I recently purchased woothemes whitelight theme and was searching on the internet for a site that had actually utilised the whitelight theme. Although I did not find one I came across the Pootlepress site which was offering amongst other wordpress related tutorials, nine on building a site using the whitelight theme video tutorials. Being a bit suspicious of the low price of £49.95 per year I emailed Jamie and asked if it was possible to build a site by just watching the tutorials. I received his affirmative reply, subscribed to the academy and watched the videos….
Within a few hours I managed to create the site although I do need to add more content to complete
Now–for anyone else unsure on joining the academy I am aged 54 with a little knowledge of wordpress. Just over one year ago I attended a one day wordpress course (not Pootlepress) which I found the pace of the course too quick as I am slow with a keyboard and unfortunately have a limited attention span!
The video tutorials are easy to follow and understand. Ideal for who wants to work at their own pace!
Well done Jamie and the team.”
