Book Review: "WordPress 2: Learn WordPress the Quick and Easy Way"

image by Maria Langer and Miraz Jordan, (Berkeley: Peachpit Press, 2006, 294 pgs)

A great book for WordPress users. Wish I had this when I set up my first blog in the beginning. The book gives details on how to get started with WordPress and tips to a whole lot of shortcuts I knew nothing about. It was written with instructions for starting and setting up a blog on WordPress.com or downloading the program to a ISP server or even your own.

There is also good info. on customizing themes and using plugins (a real puzzle to me). The book gives easy to follow instructions (unlike the WordPress directories), and shows pictures of the dashboard and different WP programs to demonstrate what they are talking about. Also shows you how to set up a static home page, add photos (a real problem for me), set up for WebCam images, add Podcasting, and other advanced tasking like directly accessing the Database. The book is very beneficial and quite easy to use. The best current resource out there for everything WordPress.
