It’s been a while! The first edition of WordPress: The Missing Manual was released almost exactly 8 years ago to a very different world. Websites were complicated, web hosts were stingy, and video hosting was a luxury. Today the world is radically different, but WordPress has only grown in popularity, now accounting for a staggering one third of all websites in existence. If you need a modern website and you don’t have a team of coding ninjas on hand, WordPress remains the best choice.
And if you need a thorough guide that starts with the basics, the third edition of WordPress: The Missing Manual has you covered. You’ll learn how to test WordPress on your own computer, set it up on a web host, organize your content, and master dozens of useful plugins. Learn more (and give it a browse) on O’Reilly or Amazon. Happy trails!
