    Good tutorial, I always enjoy watching these things to see if there’s anything new that I can learn, or to see how I can improve. I hope you haven’t abandoned this since I see that 3 months have passed without any updates.

    Hi Dan,

    I’ve been very busy the last few months on freelance projects, so I have been neglecting the video’s a bit. it’s comments like yours that gets me motivated again.

    I will try to get started on the next section for this soon.

    thanks for commenting.

    I have tried this tutorial over an existing theme. Theme settings menu does not appear at all.

  4. Alex Raescu says:

    Problem solved. I just copied include ‘zkrframework/admin2.php'; at the begining of functions.php

  5. Morné says:

    Glad you got it working :) if you need more help don’t hesitate to ask if you need more help.

    I can’t understand how to make this appear at all, I see Alex solved the issue, but I don’t know how to include the admin2.php into the functions file. I feel it might be an important step for newbies who don’t know how to do that?

  7. Morné says:

    Hi Eily,

    Whats meant by including the file is you would need to include the file with the following code.

    That should do it for you.

    Let me know if that works for you?
