    Are you a beginner to intermediate-level web developers seeking to work with WordPress on a fundamental level? If you are, then this book is for you! Authors Mick Olinik and Raena Jackson Armitage, have done an outstanding job of writing a book that helps to develop effective websites for clients in the real world. Olinik and Armitage, begin by showing you which types of projects are appropriate for WordPress, and which aren’t. Next, the authors introduce you to all of the menus, functionality, and basic concepts about core WordPress that you’ll need to have down pat, before you tackle the code underpinning WordPress. Next, they present a solid overview of the file and folder structure you’ll need to be familiar with when manipulating and writing code for WordPress. Then, the authors show you what custom post types are, how they work and how you can create your own. They continue by explaining everything you need to know about plugins, and how you can quickly and easily install them. Next, the authors discuss the components of a theme; as well as, how you can use the nomenclature hierarchy and page template systems WordPress provides to create rich visual experiences. Then, they discuss taxonomies in detail and show you how to create them. The authors continue by covering the Plugins and Shortcode APIs tha handle surface functionality, and more fundamental processes found in the HTTP and Database APIs. Next, they show you how to set Multisite up, and take you through a guided tour so that you can try it yourself. Then, the authors cover the distinction between internationalization and localization, and explain why you owe it to yourself to ensure that your themes and plugins are properly localized. Finally, the authors explain why search engine optimization has always been so hard to master, and explain the difference between search engine optimization and search engine marketing. This most excellent book explains the fundamental concepts. More importantly, the book then extends the explanation to intermediate and even advanced-level topics.
