Product description

From the Back Cover

Explore the power and possibilities of WordPress from the inside out

As the most popular self–hosted blogging software in use today, WordPress is remarkably simple to operate and can be extended and tailored for a wide variety of applications. This guide focuses on the internal structure and flow of the core code, as well as the data model on which that code operates, so that you can harness the power of WordPress to meet your specific needs. The author team pulls together developer and deployer expertise, as well as knowledge of popular open source plugins, themes, and tools for WordPress, to provide an in–depth guide suitable for all WordPress users, from self–hosted bloggers to enterprise content management system applications.

Professional WordPress:

  • Offers an overview of the WordPress system and describes what happens when a WordPress–generated web page is displayed

  • Discusses the core of WordPress, describing internal code flow and data structures

  • Demonstrates extending WordPress through plugins and customizing it via themes

  • Combines a developer view of user experience and optimization with the deployer requirements for performance, security, and measurement

  • Provides practical examples of integrating WordPress with enterprise and social networking tools

Wrox Professional guides are planned and written by working programmers to meet the real–world needs of programmers, developers, and IT professionals. Focused and relevant, they address the issues technology professionals face every day.
