WordPress For Dummies

6 Comments

At last! A WordPress book for dummies! A little while ago, it was finally confirmed that the official WordPress For Dummies book will be available for purchase very, very soon!

From what I’ve read, the book is going to basically explain how to do everything with WordPress, from simple blogging using WordPress to making your own WordPress community. Sounds interesting huh? We’ll have to wait and see when it’s released!

Some key points the book will touch on will be:

  • Personalize WordPress Settings
  • Understand common template tags
  • Manage and moderate comments
  • Deal with comment and trackback spam
  • Troubleshoot common problems
  • Sign up for, set up and use a hosted blog at WordPress.com
  • Download, install, set up and use WordPress on your own web hosting account
  • Find, download, install and manage WordPress plugins
  • Learn and understand the “Loop”
  • Learn the ins and outs of simple template tags and theme creation
  • Download, install, configure, set up and use the WordPress MU software to create your own blog community/network

Now the question is, who’s going to be getting this? I know I probably will, just for fun, and I’ll probably write a review about it as well. It’s not even that expensive either! I haven’t seen a site selling it for over $22 or so.
