Book Site: The Complete Idiot's Guide to WordPress
With more than 22 million users worldwide, WordPress is the #1 blog WordPress publishing application in the world. This guide cover both its hosted blogging service (WorldPress.com) and its self-hosted application (WordPress.org).
The book covers the basics, such as as how categories, pages and tags are used. The book’s best guidance is a result of Gunelius’s reliance on Web designers’ experience.
As a result, the explanations are technical enough (including webpage coding references) without requiring you to be a Web designer to appreciate the information.
The book approaches many topics with do-it-yourself determination. You can learn how to install WordPress.org into a host, even though many hosting services also offer WordPress.org as part of their packages. Tips for growing traffic are grounded in realistic expectations. If you are used to reading make-money-with-blogging-overnight come-ons on the Web, you’re in for a welcome treat with this guide.
