Book Description

So you want a WordPress-powered website?

If you've wanted to build your own website but felt it was beyond your capabilities, think again! And if you want a website but you've been put off by the technobabble that is all too common in computer books, you'’ve arrived at the right place. In less than an hour, this book steps you through setting up a hosting account and your own private domain, and installing WordPress. You’ll find detailed step-by-step directions for setting up WordPress with GoDaddy, the world’s leading name in domain registrations, and you’ll find recommendations for other major web hosting companies. If you've placed yourself into the 'beginner', 'neophyte', 'amateur', or even 'dummies' category... if you've thought "I can't do this..." -think again!
WordPress in An Hour or Less, by best-selling computer book author Ed Jones, will give you what you need to know to put WordPress, the world’s most popular website development tool, to work to your best advantage!

Learn how to get up and running fast with WordPress, and how to do so with a minimal amount of hassle. By the end of the second chapter, and in less than an hour, you’ll be up and running with your own privately-hosted WordPress web site! Best of all, you don’t need prior computer experience, programming knowledge, or web design skills. This book will teach you-

  • How to register a domain and quickly set up web hosting

  • How you can install WordPress with just a few simple steps

  • How you can tune in to the primary needs of your site’s visitors, even though you aren't a web designer

  • How you can add posts and pages with attention-getting content

  • How you can use the power of Wordpress themes to give your site a look all its own

  • How you can use Wordpress plugins to greatly expand the functionality of your website

Both WordPress in An Hour or Less and its more advanced companion text WordPress from Start to Finish come from the pen of Edward Jones, the principal technology writer behind the "Get-it-Done" series of computer books. Jones has been designing web sites for a variety of clients since the early days of the World Wide Web. He has also been a big fan of WordPress since shortly after its inception nearly 10 years ago, and he has used WordPress to design and provide dozens of web sites for a number of clients. Along the way, Jones has learned the ins and outs of WordPress, and he shares those with you in this book. WordPress truly makes it possible to do it on your own-- one of the best ways to think of it is as a supercharged word processor for publishing web content. So, put this book under your belt, so to speak, get started, and let WordPress in An Hour or Less get you online fast, with your own website.

3.0 out of 5 stars Maybe a liitle more than an hour ... depends on how organized you are 10 Sept. 2012

I like the format of this book ... the step by step instructions are clear - there is a bit too much of the "dialog" stuff sprinkled in for my liking but I was able to quickly jump over that to get to the actual steps. I haven't set up a blog yet but after reading the instructions, based on my skill level I believe that I could easily follow these steps and get it done, although I'm skeptical that an hour would be enough. There are two books in this series and I was confused at first about which version I downloaded. The second one is supposed to be more advanced so make sure you know which one you need before completing the download.
