  1. Your WP Apprentice videos are too small. Please modify your videos to allow a full screen presentation selection..

  2. Leon,

    There’s a full screen button on the far right of play bar (right next to the HD). Click that and the video plays in full screen.

  3. WordPress incorporates the MediaElements.js library in this latest release, so basically, the new version supports all of the formats and devices listed on this page: http://mediaelementjs.com/ (h.264, WebM, WMV, FLV). Browsers that don’t support HTML5 video fallback to Flash (if Flash is installed). Works great with mobile devices provided your video format is mobile friendly.

  4. Hi Kirk, I get this error message when attempting to upgrade to 3.6. What should I do to correct this?

    Warning: touch() [function.touch]: Unable to create file /tmp/wordpress-3.tmp because No such file or directory in /home/carols15/public_html/wp-admin/includes/file.php on line 179

    Warning: unlink(/tmp/wordpress-3.tmp) [function.unlink]: Operation not permitted in /home/carols15/public_html/wp-admin/includes/file.php on line 493
    Download failed.: Could not open handle for fopen() to /tmp/wordpress-3.tmp

    Installation Failed

  5. Hi Phil,
    That looks like a problem with permissions on your server. Normally when WordPress is installed the permissions are set correctly for future updates. I suggest opening a support ticket your web host. They should be able to sort this out fairly quickly.

  6. Greetings Mr. Biglione:

    I am thinking of having pages, and posts, on my soon-to-be website. I get the sense that I may set up Posts to publish at a future date. May I also set an expiration dates for the posts? Did I miss the option?

    Many thanks,
