Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is a very sophisticated and comprehensive book. But it is definitely not for dummies or beginners which I am. So I was disappointed. I will use it as a reference but I was hoping for stepwise directions or a simple tutorial to get me started.
I wanted an all-around WordPress book; alas, this particular book is limited to creating sites for blogs. I want to use WordPress as a general Content Management System, and I have no interest in blogs. I've seen some sites that are flexible (with respect to viewing client) and are non-blog sites. I goofed in not researching this issue with this book in mind. Lesson learned.
I have been unable to use this book as a step-by-step guide since the bitmaps do not match what I’m seeing. This is because the book omits anything to web hosting and redirects the reader to their web hosting company to resolve those details. I purchased web hosting from Wordpress itself so I should have a very standard structure. So the details that would allow me to proceed are missing. I have never put so much time into a book and gotten so little out of it.
Excellent book and content is just what I need. Thanks.
Don't know I haven't been able to read it yet.
