Abstract:

Annotation

Having a website built can be a complicated and expensive undertaking. For large businesses this is a necessary expense, but for the ever-increasing number of independents and small businesses, this can easily be handled by the intrepid amateur. In Create Your Own Website Using WordPress in a Weekend, author Alannah Moore draws on her extensive experience to show how, in just a weekend, almost anyone can create a website in WordPress that looks professional and is entirely tailored to their needs and preferences. Through carefully structured step-by-step tutorials, the book takes the reader through every stage of the web design process. It is illustrated with fabulous examples, and features checklists and tips throughout, covering domain registration, planning, plugins, and choosing the right theme. This will cover the upcoming WP 2012 version.
