If you want to establish a web prescence for any reason then you need a site and if like me you are not a techie then that means setting up a blog. Personally if I want to build a website then I use Wordpress because apart from being nice and straight forward to set up, Google loves them and that should be reason enough for anyone :) It took me a long, long time before I started setting up sites, I kept telling myself that it woud be way too difficult and expensive, when I finally started I found that it was easier than I thought, but like anything there is a learning curve, and I really wish that I'd had Nancy's wordpress book when I started because it would have saved me a lot of wasted time!!!!!!!!!!

First of all there is a mass of information in the book which covers everything that you need to build a website. More advanced users might want to skip the first section which deals with the basics of domains,hosting and getting wordpress onto your site. For those who are a bit concerned about their ability to set up wordpress, Nancy takes you through the process clealry and concisely. You get and indepth look at how to tweak your site and what plugins (saves you a lot of time) to use, and why you need to use them. Apart from the stuff that is readily available on wordpress, Nancy also talks about some external services which depending on what you want to use your site for could make your life a whole lot easier.

Whilst the focus is probably more on the newbie and intermediate user, I was able to find some useful information in there as well. This is a clearlt written and highly informative book, and well worth reading.

Nancy's book is a 'must have' for all beginners as well as experienced Wordpress users. If you're just starting off Nancy literally takes you by the hand and walks you through all of the technical bits and pieces in a really easy to follow, step by step fashion.

If you're a more experienced Wordpress user there are plenty of advanced tips and tricks which Nancy explains in a no fluff fashion, and will save you loads of time in the long run from trying to fathom things out on your own.

If you've never created a website before Nancy's book will have you up and running in no time at all, and is just as good as a point of referral for more experienced 'Wordpressers'.

The author has been using Wordpress since 2003 for her own websites as well as for paying clients. Starting out with the basics of setting up a Wordpress site, the guide goes on to explain more complex subjects such as customising and tweaking the various aspects of this great blogging platform. I particularly enjoyed the chapter, "Power-Up With Plugins," because it introduced me to some really useful Plugins I wasn't aware of before.

This is a simply written book, which guides anyone who is new to Wordpress to get the best out of their site. There is basic information to help build a Wordpress site from scratch, plus a whole section on 'tweaks and tips' that will be of value to even more experienced Wordpress users.

In addition, I particularly liked Nancy's recommendations for some of the tools and plugins to use with Wordpress. Great book!

I have been using wordpress myself for years and thought I knew it all. What this did for me is explain a number of free plugins which I never knew before. Its easy to navigate so anyone with any knowledge can simply click to where they want to go - a very well put together book

This is a very useful guide. The style is friendly and entertaining; at the same time you get all the info needed to get your WordPress site off the ground. Probably the only book you need when starting out as a WordPress novice. Highly recommend it

Extremely disappointing, this book does not deliver what it claims, and will only be of limited benefit to someone who has no idea about websites. Reads more like a sales catalogue for Wordpress. At 77p I still feel robbed - it's that bad.

I struggled with this book - it's Ok for a very basic website but not much more. I also had a bad experience with this hosting service that was recommended.
