There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
However, if you want to make your site something unique, tweaking the theme settings and so forth, then this is not the book for you. That is problematic, since it appears the available WordPress books are either walk-you-through-building-a-web-site books, or "professional" books that act on the assumption you know how to open up and expertly modify CSS and PHP. I'm afraid all intermediate level folks (like myself) will need to continue to search the web one question at a time...
By the end of the book I had my website up and running and understand how to customize any WP theme I choose in the future.
I would recommend this book to anyone starting a website or using Wordpress. It made something I knew nothing about easy to learn and do.
I don't write many reviews, but I should do seeing as I use reviews myself before I decide to read any books on Amazon. But for this one: 'WordPress for Beginners 2017' I just have to share my thoughts. I received a review copy of this book and wasn't under any obligation to read it. One I started, though, I found it to be a real page turner, which is quite unusual for a guide. Though I'm computer literate, there can be something frustrating about WordPress at times. This is especially true when it goes wrong. It can end up resource heavy too, if you don't know what you're doing, which plugins to choose, or where to go in Dashboard.
WHY I RATE THIS BOOK SO HIGHLY
Although it's a "Beginners" guide, I learned all kinds of valuable stuff that I knew nothing about. A lot of the things Dr. Andy Williams covers were eye-openers to me, and that was a pleasant surprise.
I can't recommend this book highly enough for anyone who needs to get to know WordPress properly. Thanks to 'WordPress for Beginners 2017,' I now get to save valuable time and frustration. I can optimize my blog, and I'm comfortable with essential maintenance. None of this takes long to learn either. Even the technically challenged will find this book a fun and easy read.
FROM NOVICE TO PROFICIENT USER IN NO TIME
This is by far the easiest beginner's guide for WordPress that I've come across, and I've sampled a few. I would say that I'm now at a good intermediate level. Thanks to this book I can fly around WordPress' Dashboard with my eyes shut. That's something I thought I'd never be able to do, but hey, it's easy once you know how ;)
