Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Have taken over a community web site which was developed using WordPress, Wanted a (very quick) 'kick start' to make some changes and fixes. I could only find pages 262-265 relating to static pages (used for websites) the rest refers to 'posts' (Blogs). Have bought and recommended dozens of Dummies books over the years, This is first one I've been dissatisfied with. Have returned it.

Whilst not intending to review this book fully, potential buyers may find some points helpful.
A release of the best-selling 'for Dummies'© series, with plenty of good information for both beginners and more advanced users, laid out in a clear and concise manner. The author is an expert in the field (have read other titles by her), and really knows her stuff - this book is a great textbook for beginners, as well as a reference guide for others (always forgetting something and having to look at it myself).

Finally a note - if you are looking for a guide to using Wordpress through their website, this is not it. This volume is written for those who have their own Wordpress site hosted elsewhere (more control/options available).
