WordPress For Dummies
Written by WordPress pioneer and the founder of eWebscapes, Lisa Sabin-Wilson, and updated to capture all the changes expected to come with the latest release of WordPress, the brand-new edition of this bestselling guide gives you an all-access pass to using this powerful publishing platform to get your very own blog or website up and running—in no time. In WordPress For Dummies, you'll find out how to choose and customize a theme, pick the perfect web host, manage multiple websites with multiple authors, and tons more.
Not a WordPress guru? No worries! Everything you need to become a pro is a page—and a click—away!
The two parts then that I could really get my teeth into are the section on theme customization with an explanation of many of the variables, and the second detailing the author's top ten plug-ins. I found some items there that I had somehow overlooked before and are coming in quite handy.
I needed to get started building WordPress sites, and this book did it for me. The author is clearly a fan of WordPress, but she doesn't make everything look perfect. Every product has its disadvantages. and Lisa does a good job of laying out the pitfalls of working with WordPress. This book does a good job of explaining the WordPress environment.
I've found that the Dummies book run the gamut from very, very bad to very, very good. I am pleased to report that "WordPress for Dummies" by Lisa Sabin-Wilson is very, very good. This book will be useful to novice WordPress users (like myself) through, I suspect, intermediate users.
I waited so long for WordPress For Dummies, by Lisa Sabin-Wilson, and it was well worth the wait. I had been wanting to learn WordPress and had been a fan of Lisa's blog so it was just what I needed as a motivator. Just about everything I've needed to know was in there!
