Want to create cost-effective, fabulous websites? Do it with WordPress — here's how!

WordPress is much more than a great blogging platform. You can use it as a content management system or to design a website using one of the many free WordPress themes. Your site can include an e-commerce storefront, photo gallery, discussion forum, social community, and more. Follow the steps in this book; you'll be saying — and hearing — "wow!"

  • Choose your tools — select a text editor, set up FTP, choose the graphics type and software you need, and explore colors
  • Pick a theme — learn all about WordPress themes, find and install one, and add widgets and template tags
  • Make it yours — use CSS and HTML to customize site design and enhance your site with plugins
  • Spruce it up — optimize your website for search engines, add a photo gallery, and integrate Twitter and Facebook into your site

  • Quick tips for content management
