I'm a beginner at WordPress, and when I first opened this book I thought 'Oh My God' and shut it again! There's so much information and it looks so daunting. When I sat down to read it properly I realised that it's really very good and instructive, and I'm on my way to making a not-too-bad WordPress website. Some of the book is way above my head at the moment, but I'm working on it.

WordPress is a fantastic blogging tool -Simple, easy and SEO friendly. But there is much, much, more to WordPress. It can be used as a full CMS framework. I have tried several CMS frameworks; none come close to giving you the fast development environment that Word Press can.
Professional WordPress Design and Development is the best book to harness the power of WordPress

If you are like me, you probably want to create your own customised websites, but:

1. You don't want to start from scratch (don't reinvent the wheel - that's already been done).
2. You want to create code modules/plug-in/custom functions that are unique to your site.

You can get 1,000's of WordPress plug-ins from the WordPress site, but if you also want to create your own plug-ins - well this is the book for you. The book teaches you, how to setup WordPress and the processes behind the CMS framework, it then takes you to the point and beyond of creating your own plug-ins and functions.

You can have it your way - you really can!

As the owner of 6+ Wordpress books this by far the best of the bunch. Highly recommended. Comprehensive, logical and precise. No waffle or padding - just the best nuggets very clearly and professionally presented.

I expected a lot more from Wrox to be honest, having bought a mobile development book which was of excellent quality. But this book is mostly just a copy paste and summarise job from the freely available Wordpress Codex. Highly disappointed.

I gave it three stars because at least they compiled all the data into one book, so to save mooching around on WP codex for the bits and pieces, and so it can be handy as a quick reference, or if the internet drops!

This is a nice beginners guide to WordPress and it's a good entry into that world.

However, the subject matter the book tries to cover is huge as it is trying to explore every aspect of design and development for WordPress in only a few hundred pages. Because of this there is plenty of ground covered but nothing explored to any kind of in depth detail so it isn't much good for anyone looking to specialise in any one area. For example, I am a web designer/developer looking to get into WordPress theme creation and whilst there is enough here to get started there is not enough to really get me going.

Overall this was an ambitious book from the outset and again, its a nice starting point. However, all you need to do is look at the sheer size of the WordPress codex to know that this book was always going to fall far short of what you need it to cover.

Really a very informative book that introduces you to the core princibles that underpin wordpress. If you have a firm grasp of HTML and basic php this book will have you flying on the Wordpress CMS in no time.
