Want to create your own blog or website without any programming or web design knowledge?
In this book we guide you step by step to setup your first website or blog with WordPress.
Thanks to WordPress, publishing a website has never been this easy. Unlike before, ordinary internet users can now create websites with little knowledge about HTML or any scripting language. What is WordPress anyway?
WordPress is a Content Management System or CMS program built in PHP. CMSs are web applications that, as the name suggests, manage website content such as blog posts, images, and even videos. To make it simple, it is like a big website template that has been premade, for you not to bother creating or writing lines of code. All you need to do are to customize it with the help of intuitive graphical interfaces and tools then input the content that you want to display on your website.
If WordPress is just one of the many CMSs out there in the web, why choose WordPress instead of the other CMSs? Well, few of the biggest factors why many people prefer WordPress are simplicity, wide array of customization, popularity, and the community.
The simplicity of WordPress is ideal for those who have little idea on how the web works and have little knowledge when it comes to web development. With its user friendliness, almost everybody can master using WordPress in no time.
However, it does not mean that WordPress is only ideal for beginners. WordPress has advanced features and customizations that even most veteran web developers would appreciate. Not to mention that creating WordPress sites for them is like a walk in the park. With advanced knowledge in CSS, HTML, and WordPress template tags, they can transform an ordinary looking WordPress blog into one of the most complex websites on the web. And they can do that without spending too much time changing the internal workings of WordPress or developing additional client or server side scripts to manage the content they want to display.
Popularity and the community are additional bonuses that most WordPress users appreciate. With a large community, bugs and issues can be collected immediately and be fixed as fast as the developers can. On the other hand, the same community acts as WordPress’ primary support group. If you got trouble or something you want to know, you can just go to WordPress’ forums and ask it. Within minutes (or days in some occasion), you will get an answer right away.
On the other hand, with many developers indulging themselves with WordPress, the number of plugins and themes available on the market steadily increases. Due to that, WordPress can be customized in more ways than one. Also, the plugins make it possible for users to get the functionalities they want fast without, of course, developing by their own. All they need to do is go the plugins section of their dashboard, search for a plugin, and install it. Within minutes, the plugin will be live and working.
If you were convinced to get WordPress and use it for your website, then this book is for you. It contains basic as well as some advanced topics on how you can take full advantage of WordPress
