Title: Digging into WordPress Book
400 Pages of Practical Information
There is much to learn about the World’s most popular publishing platform. From your first steps of learning about WordPress all the way through maintaining a site throughout the years, this book is packed with truly practical information.
Beautiful Custom Design
Design-wise, Digging into WordPress is a beautiful book: every page of the book is printed with stunning digital-color precision on gloss-finish paper, with each of its eight chapters color-coded to provide quick and easy navigation. With its large, clear typography, each page is easy on the eyes and easy to read.
All printed copies of the book include a PDF version that you can read on your computer (or you can buy the PDF version alone). We know it’s nice to have a real book to hold in your hands, but the PDF is also great for three big reasons:
- Hyperlinked. All the many URL’s in the book you can just click to go to the web page referenced. There is also internal linking – you can click links in the table of contents to jump to those sections.
- Copy & Paste code. Much easier to grab code via copy & paste than retyping from scratch. Of course the page numbers in the book and PDF match, so if you are reading the book you can jump over to the PDF and go to that page to copy and paste. You’ll always know exactly where that code is.
- Search. The book has an appendix, but that’s never quite as good as just using your PDF readers search feature to find what you are looking for.
Features entire Table of Contents and part of Chapter 3.
A Lifetime Subscription
When you buy this book, you will instantly get the most current version. But also, you are getting a lifetime subscription to all updated (PDF) copies of the book. Updates will automatically be emailed to you as they are released.
How many tech books do you wish would JUST FLIPPING ?!@!*! STAY FLAT while you are trying to reference them while at the computer.
Lots of Code Samples
We go into depth about the anatomy of a WordPress theme. How they work, and how to write the code you need to do the things you want. This means real code that you can sink your teeth into, as well as copy and paste. Beyond theme building, we introduce many tricks your functions.php file can pull off and show you ways to increase performance and security through HTAccess.
