Format: Paperback
The recently published book, WordPress 3 Site Blueprints by Heather R. Wallace and published by Packt Publishing is an ambitious project that belies the slim volume that it is.

According to the author, the book is primarily geared to a "self-learner" or a "WordPress consultant" who is "interested in exploring all that this open source software has to offer..." The book's premise is to provide a "blueprint" in the design of 9 different types of WordPress websites. Each blueprint or chapter walks you through the process of configuring a specific WordPress Theme. The types of sites (blueprints) discussed are:

1.Migrating a Static site to WordPress
2.Building a Community Portal
3.Building an E-Commerce Website
4.Building a Local Classified Ads Website
5.Building a Consumer Reivew Website
6.Building a Job Board Website
7.Building a Micro blogging Website
8.Building a Local Business Directory
9.Building a Membership Website

In addition to the 9 blueprints, there is an appendix that presents several WordPress plugins that the author feels may be of value such as WP-DB-Backup, Akismet and several others. Another appendix provides a guide to installing WordPress Themes and plugins.

I found the first two chapters to be very helpful. Chapter 1 describes the process of migrating a static HTML site to a dynamic WordPress site. Although the author does not provide specific instruction as how to actually install WordPress, she does direct you to online resources to accomplish that task. A concise discussion gives you the information you need to add appropriate WordPress specific code to your HTML files to turn them into a working WordPress "theme." Resources are also provided for free and premium ($) themes.

This book covers these topics:

1. Migrating static sites to Wordpress
2. Building community portal
3. Building ecommerce site

Building:
4. Local classified ads site
5. Jobs site
6. Microblogging site
7. Local business directory site
8. Membership site.

If reader is planning to build any one of these types, each chapter might be useful, provided the chapter's plugin recommended is reader's intended. However, except for #1, most topics are highly specialized reading, and eCommerce may be better served by other software. I'm puzzled by what type of reader would be interested in the wide range of sites covered.

Format: Paperback
Up front, I want to explain why I think so highly of this book: It has prepared me well to work with technical and graphics specialists whom I have retained to transform my website into "fully-functional, dynamic" WordPress website. That is to say, Heather Wallace and her colleagues have provided a comprehensive and cohesive briefing on how I can actively participate in the aforementioned, step-by-step process. I do not fully understand all of the material provided in Chapter 2 ("Building a Community Portal"), for example, and it is at least possible that another of the nine WordPress websites may prove to be more appropriate. But at least I have learned what questions to ask as well as how best to express my wishes and intentions as various steps are completed in the process.

For purposes of discussion, let's say that establishing a community portal is the ultimate objective. Two separate but related processes must be initiated: Building the website, and, building the community of people who become members. The material provided in Chapter 2 first enables the network functionality in a standard installation of WordPress.

This was a great purchase.
Very informative. Exactly what I was looking for.
Starting out with no Wordpress experience this book was the perfect tool to begin getting my site up and running in short order.
