Sort order. I've read a decent number of wordpress books now.
This one is in my top few. Easy to read. Easy to understand. Feb 15, imane rated it it was amazing Shelves: Mar 06, Elizabeth rated it liked it. Es el primer libro de wordpress que leo. I'm not sure why this book doesn't have 5 stars all-around. By far the most comprehensive book you can read on WordPress design and development.
Other than reading the codex, I can't think of a better resource.
Apr 26, Emorgan05 rated it liked it. Thoroughly useful, but some of the information is slightly out of date. Feb 13, Nicolo Marziani rated it liked it. A decent introduction to Wordpress's underbelly. If you're deciding whether or not to read it, you should know some things: The author frequently makes reference to crucial concepts often in code examples before he's discussed them.
Here's an example: Now modify the custom loop to return only products in the Specials category: This is taken from pages in the introductory section on custom post types. This example does nothing to illuminate the concept of the custom post type beyond what a few previous examples have already done, but it employs taxonomies and categories, concepts which aren't discussed at all until a few pages later. This kind of out of order, am-I-insane-or-stupid sequencing is not unheard of in these kind of technical overviews, but it's extra common in this book.
Be ready for sloppiness in general. Take, for instance, an early sequence from the section on hooks specifically from page in which the author says Two types of hooks can be used: Action hooks are triggered by events in WordPress.
Filter hooks are used to modify WordPress content[. The effect is subtle, but I nonetheless lost between thirty and ninety seconds scanning the surrounding paragraphs to make sure I had a handle on the nomenclature, that "action" didn't refer to both a type of hook and a constituent part of a hook of any type it doesn't seem to.
A great number of the code examples are incomplete. The author will say something like "let's look at the function in action", will define a new function that uses the function in question, then, instead of using the new function in context and showing the output, the author simply describes what the function would have done if it had been used. All of this is adding to the reading time of a book that is a breezy read but should be a one-to-two sitting primer. Feb 18, Gareth Otton rated it liked it.
This book was informative and an interesting read. I did find it frustrating however as it really could have been three times as big and not been big enough. They do a good job of introducing you to many aspects of WordPress but I don't think there was anything complete enough in here to really get you started.
I bought this book looking to learn how to develop custom themes for WordPress and I have finished this book realising that it will be best for me to look elsewhere online for more inform This book was informative and an interesting read.
I bought this book looking to learn how to develop custom themes for WordPress and I have finished this book realising that it will be best for me to look elsewhere online for more information.
If anyone is looking to read this for the same reason that I was, custom theme creation, then I think that the following link would be a better option for you. It is a video tutorial that I mean to try next. I would never normally recommend something I haven't used myself yet but it is by a man named Chris Coyier and I have followed his tutorials before with great success.
He has a real knack for making really complicated things easy. Wordpress Tutorial It shows you how WP works starting from the loop, to hooking etc Starting from a top-level view on WP, it then diggs down into the Loop, database, queries, taxonomies, plugin development, shortcodes, theming "Professional WordPress - Design and Development" is really good book on WordPress.
Starting from a top-level view on WP, it then diggs down into the Loop, database, queries, taxonomies, plugin development, shortcodes, theming and, very important as WP grows: It also covers content building, navigation, search optimization, migration, I am just a small-time developer on WP made some 30 sites to date but this book has been a good reference for me in a lot of darker moments.
It also led me to develop a working routine that now saves me a lot of time. Highly recommend for everyone serious about WordPress. An exceedingly helpful and well-written guide that covers the ins and outs of WordPress.
And, though it is a great resource on its own, the many other links and podcasts cited in this book will serve me well long after this book surpasses it's expiration date. I'm grateful to the authors for putting together this manuscript, as it has already been invaluable in my young career as a web developer.
Oct 01, Foxstreet rated it liked it. This is great if you're trying to create a website from scratch; so for those who are just using templates and plugins, don't bother -- just pay for a registrar and host, and use the new plugins to make your stuff look pro. The plugin instructions update every year, so please read their info before applying it to your wordpress site.
For the beginners out there, just read the Dummies for WordPress.
I was a little disappointed in this book. Perhaps I was expected too much. I knew a little about Wordpress when I bought it, and I hoped the book would give me more of an insight into the software. I found it to be a lot of the same rudimentary information that is available through many sources. If a person in interested in WP you can find the same information for free from many sites, just do a little research and save the download price.
Jan 31, Michael Musgrove rated it really liked it. An essential book to have on your shelf if you mess with WordPress at all. Touches on some basic things all the way up to some more advanced tasks. Lots of great information, although the layout and design of the material is a little technical and boring.
