WordPress for Beginners – A Visual Guide
A Visual Step-by-Step Guide to Creating your Own WordPress Site in Record Time, Starting from Zero!
Updated 28th October 2014 to cover WordPress 4
Do you want to build a website but scared it's too difficult?
Building a website was once the domain of computer geeks. Not any more. WordPress makes it possible for anyone to create and run a professional looking website.
While WordPress is an amazing tool, the truth is it does have a steep learning curve, even if you have built websites before. Therefore, the goal of this book is to take anyone, even a complete beginner and get them building a professional looking website. I'll hold your hand, step-by-step, all the way.
As I was planning this book, I made one decision early on. I wanted to use screenshots of everything, so the reader wasn't left looking for something on their screen that I was describing in text. This book has screenshots. I haven't counted them all, but it must be close to 300. These screenshots will help you find the things I am talking about. They'll help you check your settings and options against the screenshot of mine. No more doubt, no more wondering if you have it correct. Look, compare and move on to the next section.
With so many screenshots, you may be worried that the text might be a little on the skimpy side. No need to worry there. I have described in the minutest detail, every step on your journey to a great looking website. In all, this book has over 40,000 words.
This book will cut your learning curve associated with WordPress
Every chapter of the book ends with a "Tasks to Complete" section. By completing these tasks, you'll not only become proficient at using WordPress, you'll become confident & enjoy using WordPress.
