Learn to build, update, maintain, and expand a WordPress website
WordPress is an increasingly popular open-source content management system that exists in either a self-hosted or hosted version and allows you to build and maintain a feature-rich website. This unique book-and-video package serves as a friendly, self-paced learning experience on the capabilities and newest features of the self-hosted version of WordPress (though much of it also applies to the hosted version). Veteran author George Plumley teaches you how to customize and extend WordPress in a number of ways in order to make it do exactly what you need. The valuable lessons featured in the book focus on everyday tasks and are supplemented on the instructional video to enhance your learning experience.
