5.0 out of 5 stars Easy reading 14 Aug 2014
A step-by-step book, as we all know about this Dummies series. WordPress will not be the same after reading this wonderful book. I recommend!

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I wanted 6 May 2014
By BeeJay
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm aiming to develop blogging from here forward and this looks as if it will be my master guide.
Ask me in six months when, hopefully, I would have mastered the whole darn thing!

1.0 out of 5 stars Where's the missing chapter???? 22 May 2014
By Susan Giordano - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is not a book for dummies. You may find that the author assumes the reader is not a dummy; you'd better know html. There are a lot of instructions in this book for BLOGGERS. There is no information on content management, although it's listed in the table of contents. In other words, a whole chapter is missing from the book. I tried to contact the author, but she never responded to my email.

3.0 out of 5 stars a bit basic 25 May 2014
By Cooltrip71 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I will preface this review that I am a technology professional. Web servers and their settings are not a focus of mine, but I am not completely unfamiliar with them. I purchased this book to assist in being as knowledgeable as I could be for the launch of a blog idea of mine. I decided for the initial phase to keep it on the wordpress.org hosting until I reach a critical mass to consider a custom hosting solution. For those doing the same, this book does not offer much more detail than the excellent guides provided for free on Wordpress. I received most of my knowledge from Wordpress online resources vs. this book. For those in this situation you may want to pass on this book.

Where this book may/may not be helpful is phase 2 with a custom hosting solution. I can't judge this book yet for that content, however, some of the tactics within may prove sound. I can't offer a fail review as if the Wordpress.org online guides are ignored, this text will offer more value in getting your blog off the ground. It offers content for both paths.

3.0 out of 5 stars YouTube videos (which are free) are much better. 20 Aug 2014
By Frederick Samec - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am no dummy but I thought the book left a lot to be desired. I wanted to swap out a photo my initial programmer had installed. No help at all. YouTube videos (which are free) are much better.

As expected, the book arrived as promised and was exactly what I needed. I had just started WORDPRESS and if I had questions, the book was indispensable. Very helpful indeed.
