In this section, we answer the burning question: “So why DID they put that in a WordPress book?”

Who is this book for?

If you can answer “yes” to all of these:

Image Are you familiar with blogs in general, or currently use WordPress to publish and manage blogs and websites?

Image Are you familiar with the concepts of web hosting, file transfer (FTP) and have a basic understanding of HTML and CSS? Do you want to learn how to build not just a blog, but a full-fledged WordPress site?

It definitely helps if you’ve already got some solid web development chops too, but it’s certainly not required.

Image Do you prefer stimulating dinner party conversation to dry, dull, academic lectures?

this book is for you.

Who should probably back away from this book?

If you can answer “yes” to any of these:
