5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome beginner's guide, March 4, 2009
This review is from: WordPress For Dummies, 2nd Edition (Paperback)
Over the last few months, I've read a few books about WordPress, all of them quite good and ones I'd recommend. I'd highly recommend this one for the so-called "average, everyday person" wanting to get started with a WordPress blog. Ms. Sabine-Wilson gives detailed step by step instructions for every WordPress task and explains in detail various options and settings. When you first look at a WordPress dashboard, one may get daunted by all of the options present and Sabine-Wilson gently leads you through all of them. This second edition was delayed because WordPress latest major upgrade (2.7) was itself delayed. This book has the latest WordPress screen shots in its figures, which helps avoid confusion.

Among the topics Sabine-Wilson covers are getting set up with a blog at WordPress.com or WordPress.org (if you decide to find a site host already running WordPress), how to manage your blog, what all the Admin panel options mean, adding images and/or audio files, themes and plugins. To someone just getting started, WordPress might seem bit difficult to master. But it's actually pretty straight forward to use once you get familiar with it. This book is a good way to become familiar with using WordPress.
