Provides clear, step-by-step instructions for tackling more than 140 WordPress tasks. Each task-based spread covers a single technique, sure to help you get up and running on WordPress in no time
Introducing WordPress -- Step up your WordPress.com blog -- Set up your WordPress.org blog -- Know your administration tools -- Create written blog content -- Create visual and audio content -- Explore widgets and plugins -- Make your blog content appealing -- Build traffic to your blog -- Tweak your theme -- Content management -- Maintain your WordPress blog
If you are the type of person that learns new concepts with pictures rather than words, this book is for you. In addition to the written instructions needed to complete a specific task the author shows what to click or where to enter information with an accompanying screen shot on basically every page.
This book is geared towards people just starting out with WordPress. Consequently the book shows you how to do something, but is rather light on the why you want to do something, or explaining alternative methods.
The book does a very good job of differentiating the pros and cons of having wordpress.com host your blog on its servers versus downloading the software from wordpress.org and installing it on either your own web server or that of your website host.
