Professional looking buttons in WordPress the easy way

Tips & Tricks, Wordpress
As some of you may know I come from a background of Tech offices. I've been more used to css, html and php, than anything else when it comes to web design. Also I've alway been more of a programmer than I have  so it came as a great thrill to me that the Short code Ultimate plugin took over the job of making professional looking button in wordpress, and made it very easy to do so! It was taking me hours to get things right, until someone had told me about this plug in. Here is an example of what I am doing in the video.

Creating a WordPress Page Template

Tips & Tricks, Wordpress
Hi! I know you are probably wondering why there is a dancing chicken on the screen, but we are going to use that fellow in a moment to do a little exercise to show how to make page tempates in WordPress.

I just purchased a set of 2000 icons, and when I got further into the project I found that it didn't have some of the basic ones I needed. This will show you how to use unlimited, or at least limited to the number of font icons sets in the known universe, on your wordpress pages. The truth is you don't need to use a plugin just to put fonts or font icons on your website. You will need a custom css plugin though. I am using Simple Custom CSS on this site...
