I must be an idiot. This was the perfect book for me!
on July 24, 2013
I cannot believe the other reviews of this book. I found it to be an excellent book. I was new to Wordpress at the time. And this book helped me to get to the point of an intermediate user. Of course where I need to be is an advanced developer. So for that I will need to go far beyond what this book addresses. That is only common sense. However, it is much more comprehensive in what it covers than other books aimed at beginners.
Any book in the "Complet Idiots ..." series cannot really offer an advanced treatment. And this book is no exception. I found this book to be well written and easy to read. It has many illustrations. In all fairness, I did not sit in front of my computer comparing illustrations in the book with my website. I was able to go through this book in about ten days. And at the end of each day, I was more familiar about the various parts of my Wordpress site. Of course, your mileage may vary from mine.
The other thing I really liked about this book is that the author provided her insight about how to make your blog or website better. In particular the chapter on integrating a Wordpress blog with social media sites like Twitter and Facebook gave me a lot of ideas. I will certainly be following some of the authors suggestions in the coming days and weeks.
