Publisher Comments:

This book gives readers the tools they need to create beautiful, functional WordPress-powered sites with minimal hassle. Using the WordPress user interface as a baseline, 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.

Book News Annotation:

An excellent introduction to Wordpress that includes enough to get a beginner started, as well as more advanced tips for customizing themes or creating your own. The first few chapters explain the basics, such as the differences between the three different types of Wordpress blogs, installing Wordpress, navigating the dashboard, and managing accounts. The next section covers adding and managing content--including creating posts and pages, adding tags and categories, managing links, managing comments, uploading audio and video, and using RSS and Google FeedBurner for syndication. The second half addresses creating and customizing themes, adding widgets and plugins, and integrating third-party services, such as Twitter streams, Delicious links, and Google AdSense. Finally, the authors offer tips and tricks (such as how to post by e-mail), cover customizing settings for permalinks and privacy etc., and provide a brief chapter on troubleshooting. Numerous screenshots are included throughout. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
