About the Author

Leonard Murphy Leonard Murphy was one of the earliest adopters of ExpressionEngine when it was first released in 2004, and was the author of a series of free tutorials that helped other new users to see what ExpressionEngine had to offer. The tutorials were a hit, and over the years, ExpressionEngine became more and more popular, so in 2008 Leonard expanded his tutorials into the first edition of Building Websites with ExpressionEngine. Two years later, with the release of ExpressionEngine 2, Leonard is back with a completely revised new edition. Leonard started his career in the UK, graduating from the University of Wales, Aberystwyth. In 2004, he moved to the United States and currently works for Summit Credit Union (a not-for-profit financial institution headquartered in Madison, Wisconsin). He also provides consulting and technical support for small business websites.

I recently read through Building Websites with ExpressionEngine 2, by Leonard Murphy.

As one of the first books out to cover the relatively recently released ExpressionEngine 2, I was eager to get my hands on it. I've found before that reading through books, such as Michael Boyink's, Building an ExpressionEngine 2 Site for Small Business, has been instrumental in developing a set of standards to use as I develop sites in ExpressionEngine 2.

In case you aren't familiar with the product, ExpressionEngine 2, released in July of this year, is the latest release of EllisLab's flagship content management system. The tool is extremely powerful, and is a top choice of web designers and developers for site-building projects that might otherwise resort the such CMSs as WordPress, Drupal, Joomla and the like. While ExpressionEngine isn't free, and many of it's top addons are commercial as well, they come with professional support, which more than makes up for the initial cost outset when you run into a bind along the way. ExpressionEngine allows you to work with your content in an entirely different way than other content management systems, completely separating it from the design, and this has led to a very active and dedicated fan-base.

With the power and flexibility of a complex and mature tool, such as ExpressionEngine, comes the challenge of working efficiently. In a wide-open playing field, one must set his or her own rules and standards, so that it's easy to go back to a site you worked on several months ago and still know how it works. This has been the topic of sessions at the EECI conferences, such this one by Leevi Graham.

It's in this area also, that I've found books such as Building Websites with ExpressionEngine 2 immensely helpful.

We've recently moved over to building our sites in EE2 and found this book to be a great reference source for updating our workflow. There are some subtle changes in EE2 which this book covers well. The work throughs on using popular extensions are really useful, and for a tech manual it's easy to read. Highly recommended.

EE needs lots of add ons to make it work and expand the web site. Good basic info in this book to start.

It's a good basic guide, but it assumes you have time to install the Agile theme and learn from it. Not many developers have this kind of time. Also, it doesn't provide anything extra that you can't find in the EE docs or the really useful stuff like how to dynanically render the page <title> meta tag (or any of the meta tags).
