WordPress: Visual QuickStart Guide, 2E uses a visual approach to teach the essential elements of WordPress, one of the world's most popular publishing platforms. This book gives readers the tools they need to create beautiful, functional WordPress-powered sites with minimal hassle. Using plenty of screenshots and a clear, organized format, authors Jessica Neuman Beck and Matt Beck walk new users through the installation and setup process while providing valuable tips and tricks for more experienced users. With no other resource but this guide, readers can set up a fully-functional and well-designed WordPress site that takes advantage of all the features WordPress has to offer.

This new, fully updated version covers all the key new features of WordPress 3, including an improved welcome screen with enhanced security and usability; internal linking to articles on one's own blog; support for individual author templates; improved menu interface allowing for changes to be made from inside the WordPress dashboard; and the new, easily customizable Default Theme, Twenty Eleven, with support for child themes and header and background adjustments. It also covers more advanced features, such as improved content management with Custom Post types, which allow WordPress theme developers to create custom content types outside of pages and posts; and integration of the WordPress Multi-User into the WordPress core so that users can create and manage hundreds of blogs.
