Course Description

"Knowledgeable and helpful teacher

Sean explains the material very well and solves any problems or questions. He also updates material as he uncovers new needs." by Jon Arbizu

"This course saved a project i was working on ... Thank you a lot :)." by Omåř Ħàny

"I was very impressed with how the emphisis was on simplicity. I thought that rather than getting bogged down in the techy stuff the tutor made things easy to understand. I have been overwhelmed with the amount of stuff crammed into ultimatum and it his left me uninspired. Doing this course has made me feel good about the software, it has allowed me to feel I can use it. Thanks Sean." by Justin Martin

"This course covers anything there is to know about the Ultimatum framework.

If you are staring at your screen and don't know where to start? TAKE THIS COURSE!"

These are just a few of the great reviews this course has already received (and which I am very grateful for).

You can build a mobile responsive themed website in less than 1 hour using the lectures in this course combined with Wordpress and Ultimatum.

The one thing I disliked about Wordpress was that; although you can get MANY themes, to create your own mobile friendly responsive theme you had to know and understand Php, CSS and how to edit those in the theme to get what you wanted.

This is not a simple task, especially how the source is set out.

Well, I discovered the secret. Ultimatum. The Ultimatum framework can be simply used to create YOUR Theme.

Not edit someone else's but create YOUR theme. Just using drag and drop components. Better still, you can export it and use on other sites.

Take this course today if you want to understand how to use Ultimatum and you could create your own Wordpress Themed website in less than 1 hour.

No editing Php, no changes to CSS in files. Its all done from the interface using Drag and Drop and configuration setup.

Below is a little more info on this course if you still need it :
