Tuts+ Learning Challenge Feb 2019 - pledges and goals


@voldey I think we could help each other, may be :slight_smile:


Hi there,

I have started the Tuts… Thanks to @ben.leong, I have chosen SiteGround as an hosting provider.
I wanted to go through the Australian version but a registered number of company is required (?) whereas no need for French area.
My Domain Name is : FrenchCloSydney.com (I wish it could have been .com.au)
and I am here now:

They also proposed me to take this:

And i did it (for privacy and for scanning in case of piracy) but was it really necessary ? If someone knows, I am interested in…

I am going to try to create my first page, NOW.

By the way, could someone explain to me what really means ‘themes’? I know the translation in French but I don’ understand the whole meaning here, for WP.

@BenLeong when you say start a new “diary” style thread for updates or join an existing one… what does it mean ;)) ? Is it here i am asking questions or another place?

Chat you soon :smiley:


Great work! I think Ben means you can start your own New Topic (button at the top right of the forums) for your learning journey. A place where you can ask questions and share your progress :smile:


Thanks @KingDog :smiley:
The thing is : I have this image at the beginning

I don’t see new topic (or i might have missed it)

I am struggling for the choice of a theme… Some said it is better to pay for it (rather than for free) because there are more possibilities. Do you guys have some ideas about that?

I have just done that (with the 2017 theme): a title and a photo…

I might change tomorrow (the image is just a try)… just a first start!

I am done for today, will chat soon :slight_smile:


No worries. You just have to go into the category area here - https://forums.envato.com/c/project-making/envato-courses-and-tutorials

Hey @CloSyd2019,

Is that helpful for you?

I think you can good guidance!

Best Regards


Yes, thank you @unlockdesign
I am already on one of them, but i would like to ask the possible experience of some users here.

Thanks a lot!


I think you will get help about WordPress theme list from there(Forum)
About guidance? not sure!
there is lots of expert that’s true but customization guide not sure about that (Expert are always busy).
you have to touch with Tut+ tutorial help and witch WP theme want to use premium from Themeforest ?
you can this way i thought



Thanks @unlockdesign


Thanks so much @aber2977 ! I’m not sure yet, I think it’s more personal motivation to start and do. But if we could all share our progress and updates, that would be really inspiring. :slight_smile:


@CloSyd2019 hehe yes definitely, would love to see your updates! :slight_smile:


Hi all, I have previously worked in events, therefore I’m interested in learning about how to make a flyer, https://design.tutsplus.com/courses/how-to-make-a-flyer/lessons/standard-sizes-and-dimensions. I would like to learn about making flyers for different events, specially art and recreational events, and I hope that by the end of the course I can make cool flyers.


I’d also recommend checking out our Learn JavaScript guide—designed to help you navigate through all the JS courses and tutorials on Tuts+.


I’d also highly recommend our learning guide on how to use WordPress—designed to help you find your way through all the relevant WP content for people getting started with the platform.


Hi @CloSyd2019 lovely, I think for a start a free theme is fine. They are still tres chic! :wink:


I was always try using plugin for google map. But this time getting start google map with handwriting code with learning from Tut+

hope will finish soon with well coding


Hi, I’m Bec and I work in the People Team at Envato!

Outside of work, I’m a competitive cyclist and have a little side project that is trying to encourage more women in Melbourne to race bikes. I’d like to start doing some vlogs at events to share with everyone and I have no idea how to do this! So I’m starting with a beginner course in Professional Vlogging to wrap my head around the basics. https://photography.tutsplus.com/courses/professional-vlogging


Hey @beccovington , lovely to meet you! Can’t wait to check out the vlog :slight_smile:


How is everyone else going with the projects? I am about to “binge” on my course, How To Make A Pitch Deck In PowerPoint, will report back! If anyone has some drafts / practice projects they’ve been playing with so far, would love to check it out :).
