Written for the complete beginner, it's an easy-to-follow, visual guide to building a website from scratch using the free WordPress publishing platform. You won't need to learn any web programming or turn yourself into a computer geek.
What is WordPress?
WordPress is a powerful publishing tool that's the single most popular way of publishing websites and blogs. It's used by Fortune 500 companies, startups, small businesses, bloggers and non-profits alike to build a professional presence on the web.
Because WordPress lets you add and edit content through a web-based admin area, it's easier to use then you might imagine. In fact, you can build a great-looking site without being a web designer or computer geek. You can edit your website design as much as you like and add new features with a few clicks of the mouse, or you can use the default design for an equally professional-looking site.
In plain English, this step-by-step book, written by a WordPress expert, helps you buy a domain name, get web hosting and set up WordPress so you can make a beautiful website or blog.
Clear explanations and over 55 images of the admin screens and tools mean you can see exactly how to do all this.
