    Great Video Lisa! Very practical! I sent the link to this video and your facebook page to a friend who just created a free word press blog. I encouraged my friend to start following your page and get a self hosted WordPress blog through website palace. I told them It’s easier to get the domain name and the hosting at the same place so you don’t have to mess with transferring the domain. 🙂

    Excellent video Lisa. Thanks! To your knowledge is there a way to test or work with more than one site at a time in WordPress Instant.

    Thank you so very much! I just started with WordPress (bought the Elegant Themes package), and was wondering how to work with the site on my computer instead of online, which is so tedious. I’ll be sharing this info with forum members at Bill Myers’ site (guerillabill on YouTube). So glad I subscribed to your channel. The timing is perfect.

    Lisa, You have given me confidence and support to begin conquer and complete my site. I am such a rookie.. but a determined rookie. I didnt know what a difference, listening to a voice that sounds like mine…could make. I am proud of what you are doing. Do you have a live forum or arena that we are able to chat with you?

    After you install the instant wordpress or mamp & mamp pro on to the computer. Whatever you published or uploaded using the software on the desktop. Will it effect what you see online compared to what you see on your software? I am a little bit confuse on that part, Cheers

    @gqversace All of the style.css changes will be the same live but any theme specific customizations that you did in the control panel will need to be done live. For example if your theme lets you change colors or column widths in the admin panel, you’ll have to make those changes live. But if you edit the style.css file or any of the theme files, those will already be live.

    Hello Lisa, I’m watching your videos for about 1 yearn now. You’ve done a very nice job so far.
    I got one question: you used WP for all your sites or you’ve made your own templates by coding ?

    Hello, Lisa. What software do you use to record your desktop?
