Professor Oni is by far my favorite teacher here on Udemy! The way he presents the materials is just so entertaining and profound.

I like the way he explains things. Learnt a few new things. Will give another rating as I continue with the course.

This course is/was a good match for me because I'm already quite familiar with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, and I was looking for training for the WordPress CMS. One area that can be improved is that the instructor failed to provide his image assets in a resources download at the beginning of each section. However, this was no problem for me because I was building my own stuff anyway and I wanted to use image assets that I had found rather than the instructor's. Most of this this course is locating and installing WordPress plugins and customizing various themes. You need to be somewhat tech savvy in order to follow along, but by no means does any of this require development skills or previous web coding training or experience. The instructor is personable, encouraging, and has a positive attitude. His instruction was clear to me. The videos were of good quality as far as picture and sound. This course has helped me to add something important to my skillset and I'm grateful that I've invested the time into it.

This was one of the best online courses I have ever viewed. Alex did an amazing job. Everything was explained precisely and he didn't miss a beat. Thank you Alex!

When I first looked at the examples, it threw me. Until I started to actually practice while learning, I am now able to customize the website myself.

This is a good course for designers who actually use html/css. I am more familiar with drag and drop and was hoping that this course showed me how to use what's on WP without having to code.

Great course so far. Very detailed and love it when the instructor laughs at his own jokes. I would definitely improve the clarity of the screen capture (out of focus) and demonstrating with a black website with white fonts is not the best idea. I still give Alexander his 5 stars because he knows his business and I am learning a lot about Elementor and Wordpress. I do find that the course at 199$ is highly overpriced. wait until Udemy does its 9.99$ sale .

The instructions for using SITEGROUND ARE OUTDATED! I sent a message to the course creator asking for a more updated version. Information is very complete but seems to be outdated for use on the SITEGROUND hosting site, since the whole Dashboard and interface has changed since this course was written.

One of the many things I appreciated about this course is the diversity in the webpages that the instructor demonstrates and builds. I have learned a lot more than I expected and I recommend this course for anyone interested in learning more about Wordpress.

You are a great instructor. Negative experience to the Twenty Minutes' theme. When you go to your new page or post there is no text editor visible. You have to move your cursor around to find the different parts of what use to be a text editor. It is awful to work with. I have some WP experience and I was aggravated with it. I can only image what someone new to WP would think. Also there was a problem with the comments showing up on the posts. They didn't even though they were enabled and should have. I would never use this theme again.

I like the short lessons because they are easy to review and understand. Divide and conquer is a key for success

Very intensive but well structured. I love how the instructor starts from just a blank website and ends building up a complete website. The tutorials are easy to follow and the instructor seems like a genuine instructor with a lot of passion. Thank you for this fantastic course.
