Frequently Asked Questions

There are some questions I get more often than others, so I’ve placed them in this FAQ section. Please read before you contact me.

What platform is this site built on?

I built this site on a WordPress back end and created a customized theme from the front. The flexibility of WP made it easy to customize template pages for the different areas of the site, and being able to add custom fields for the article image previews was invaluable.

Do you do link exchange?

The short answer here is no. I’m not a big fan of sites with big lists of links. If I think your site is worth showing off however, I will consider putting it in the Featured Sites section of the site.

Is it ok if I rip your tutorials or translate them on my site?

Actually, this is not a question I get too often. Some people just take whatever they like from my site, graphics, text, and often even entire tutorials.

So let me make this crystal clear… I spend hundreds of hours of my personal free time conceptualizing, developing and writing these lessons and it is not, I repeat, NOT ok to reproduce any of my content elsewhere.

If you feel there is a very good reason you should copy anything from this site, you ask first. Period.

Sounds harsh? Maybe. But my work gets stolen regularly, and I don’t enjoy having to locate and contact these copycats in order to get the copied work removed. It is however always taken down. So save us both the time, yourself the trouble, and use your own creativity.
