    Seems to me this book is just what I am looking for some time and the number one on my ‘to learn’ list this book about WordPress 3.0.

    Reading the table of contents it looks like it is covering everything there is to know/learn about WordPress.

    Sure hope to win this one!

  • http://ulrikhogrebe.com Ulrik Hogrebe

    Heay – i use wordpress extensivly for prototyping everything from websites to services – every upgrade makes it easier and easier to create functional prototypes – from quick sketches that would none the less take me hours and hours to code (not that strong a coder) to 90% finished and polished working prototypes that really create believable experiences for users. This book looks like just the ticket for someone like me who uses wordpress for basically everything:)

  • http://warstwy.com dumazz

    Great giveaway! I love books, i love WordPress.

  • Marta

    Well, I didn’t know about this book, but it looks very promising and I’d love to get one copy, because I’m currently in the process of learning *everything* about WordPress, and it woud be a great resource to help me become the Ultimate WP Master. Or something like that (well, I’m trying).

    Also, I see that it was released precisely on my birthday. That’s an unmistakable sign, this book and I are destined to meet ;)

    Being an avid WordPress user, there’s always things I’d like to learn about the script I’ve never had the chance to. Plus this’d benefit my friend too who’s also learning the in’s & outs of such a great platform.

  • http://www.lesiteimmo.com Immobilier

    I don’t know if I need a book about wordpress.

    But I’m currently playing with it, and, why, my god why, did they use so much PHP things nobody should use ? Like, say, globals ?

    Anyway, a free book is cool, I participate.

  • http://www.websitesalacarte.co.cc/ Lane Lester

    You mention the popularity of WP for blogs, but it’s become the choice of many website builders (not designers) for all kinds of sites. Its flexibility, mind-boggling choice of themes, and powerful plugins combine to make it an easy decision.

  • http://neuroshimahex.pl/ Ender

    “Covers the upcoming release of a major upgrade to WordPress, WordPress 3.0″ – This information is quite old, it was released some time ago, now we have 3.0.2 already.

    Anyway, WordPress is a very popular blogging platform and a CMS, so this book will be a great thing to have and learn!

  • http://kieferipsen.com Kiefer

    Gotta love all the wordpress support, can’t wait to get my hands on this book!

  • http://www.going2media.com Manny Gongora

  • Stephen Whiteley

    This learning package is exactly what is needed by people like myself who have a potentially rich store of content but who,s interactive internet experience is poor or non-existent. WordPress appears to be in a dominant position regarding the blogosphere so it would make sense to go with a platform that has many users, much feedback and ongoing professional development. This book and the associated online tutorials looks like the way forward for novices, experts and all in between to benefit from the practical experience of its author.

  • http://builderror.com Geez

    Less is more…

    WordPress lovin wrapped in a book…

  • http://www.trailertrashdesign.us joe

    Slowly but surely, I’ve been converting my web clients to WordPress. I can talk about WordPress to some of my clients all day long, some of them get it, some of them don’t. I’m sure that this book would become a valuable tool in not only being able to pull content from to convey to current clients, but more to use to go after new clients.

    I’ve finally taken the plunge into learning WordPress and was pleasantly surprised at how simple it was to implement and how much I had to learn! If I don’t win this book I may purchase it anyway; learning with the assistance of video tutorials. I’m both a graphic designer and a front-end web coder (at work we’re still debating on what title to put on my business card) and am looking forward to learning more about WordPress.

  • suzieqph

    this book looks amazing, i’m sure it’ll help me a lot!

  • David Rodriguez

    the book is… awesome.

    does that suffice? XD

  • http://www.spreedinc.com Dan Kershaw

    This is wonderful! I have been teaching small business owners to take control of their websites and this book and online material works very well together to teach the average person what they need to know. We need more books like this – for the less technical natured!

  • http://beverlysmithart.com Beverly Smith

    This book is perfect for me since I’m starting a WordPress Blog by the end of the year and have zero knowledge of how to do it. I also want to use the Blog as a website to showcase my art and be able to talk about the paintings side by side with the images. I need WordPress instructions easy for the basic user who wants to continue to increase knowledge over time. I’m a visual learner, so the web content is really a plus with Using WordPress. I’ve read free online instructions from WordPress, but having the instructions in one place with visual web backup is fantastic and something I truly need as I move forward with my web presence.

  • Alejo

    ITS SEEMS A VERY UNIQUE OPORTUNITY TO IMPROVE MY KNOWLEDGE ABOUT WORDPRESS AND THE WAY TO LEARN ABOUT LOOKS VERY EASY. I LIKE TO WIN THE USING WORDPRESS BOOK.

    I really would love to have one of those books :)

  • http://www.ninahaghighi.com Nina Haghighi

    This book looks beyond fantastic; I’ve been searching for a good book on WordPress that doesn’t require me to supplement it with a couple more books because the book wasn’t advanced enough, didn’t have enough examples, wasn’t well-written, etc.

    Don’t get me wrong, there are loads of resources on the web, but there’s so much, and most of it centers around the new features, all sorts of themes, security tweaks, etc – and nothing really ties it together in a cohesive way.

  • Sarah Brenner

    This book is fantastic! About a year ago I decided to change my HTML site over to the WordPress CMS to make it easier to manage the content and I love it. One of the biggest challenges I face in my business is the chaos that happens with the number of projects on the table simultaneously. Using WP as a project management system is brilliant! I appreciate the info.

    This book seems very interesting. Although there are a lot of documentation on the Internet about WP, but it’s sometimes hard when you start to find the information you seek. Using WordPress as a book is often a useful resource.

  • Dawn

    Would absolutely LOVE this… I wasted a good 6 hours yesterday trying to modify a WP theme!

    I think it’s high time i won a contest like this. I’ve entered a lot of them. This one in particular would be nice because I have at least 5 sites running on wordpress but I wouldn’t consider myself a “wordpress expert”. I’ve got my fingers crossed…

  • bertster

    great resource, thanks.

  • Chris

    A free book would be AWESOME. I have to design our school superintendent’s blog on WordPress…and I don’t even know the first thing about that site. MY job expects me to train myself.

    Anyhoo Mery xMas to all Ho Ho Ho ;)

  • http://franfun.com Fran Fernández

    I think that WordPress is the perfect solution for freelance web designers. It’s the most efficient content management system and there is a big opensource developers community behind it with a lovely message: “code is poetry”.

    If code is poetry, design is philosophy. Then, WordPress is… The Art? Ok, take it easy: the main web design tool.

    Building a website with WordPress is not as simple as I thought it would be. I imagined I’d have it up within a weekend, and 2 months later, I’m still spending late nights adding widgets and compressing images. I wonder if this book has some great shortcuts so that I could get the site launched by the first of the year.

    This looks great! I’d like to win a copy of the Using WordPress book. Though I have been using WordPress on my own site, as well as helping others set up blogs and sites, I don’t feel that I have a mastery of the technology. Based on the table of contents, and well-written introduction and sample chapter, I think the Using WordPress will help me round out my core understanding of the capabilities and features built into WordPress.

    WordPress is one of those amazing resources that you can jump into without knowing much, but without books like this, you have no idea of its true power. As WordPress grows and evolves, keeping up with it and using it to its fullest means educating yourself about Using WordPress.

    Being from the Social Media fraternity myself, I think it would be interesting to see what Tris Hussey has come up with in the book.

    Despite being present as a blogging platform for quite some-time now, there have been very books written about the subject of WordPress.

    Looking forward to grabbing the copy and gaining some insights from the step-by-step tutorial.

  • http://www.cysassone.com Chris Sassone

    Utilizing WordPress in today’s trending internet culture is crucial for any web designer. “Using WordPress” lays out plainly the components of WordPress that are not normally discussed in the realms of WP education, such as: configuring WP to your specific needs, choosing plugins, theme structure, understanding security, dealing with common problems and backing up your site and database. Also, marrying both the book and internet exercises to provide more of a virtual experience instead of just another book of “WordPress knowledge” sets this book apart.

  • http://man-making.com/ Earl H.

    I’ve got a couple WP sites up and have been trying to learn my way by doing. It’s time to get just such a detailed desktop partner. Sign me up!

  • http://www.jamiereddish.com Jamie

    I use WordPress as a CMS for my clients. The sample chapter looks a little text heavy, but considering I taught myself primarily through trial and error I could use a bit of text to explain things!

    Fantastic! Just looking at the sample chapters and table of contents tells me i need this book. I learned some of these lessons (like .com vs. .org) the hard way.

Do you want the guilt of a divorce on your shoulders? For the sake of my marriage to WordPress……PLEASE let me win!

  • http://angelobeltran.com/blog Angelo Beltran

    The integration of online video, screencast and podcast has got me all excited about this book. Bring it on!

  • http://www.passey.info Arvind Passey

    The synopsis of the book clearly talks of advantages for any blogger as it has “an unprecedented collection of online learning resources: online video, screencasts, podcasts, and additional web content, all designed to reinforce key concepts and help users achieve real mastery.” Moreover, ‘thirty-two of Technorati’s Top 100 blogs now use WordPress’ which is what makes this site so attractive.

    Even I use WordPress for my site: http://www.passey.info.

    WordPress is amazing! I find it inspiring that so many people dedicate themselves to providing an amazing set of tools for no compensation. There is just so much that can be accomplished with WordPress these days, but sometimes it’s hard to process all the information and possibilities- so I would really love to see this book. I’m sure it’s extremely useful.

  • http://ideatreedesignonline.com Jeremy Jared

    WordPress continues to lead the way for Bloggers, and Web Designers. WordPress has opened many doors for people to start either a career or a hobby as a designer. You can find an uncountable amount of WordPress resources online, but sometimes you just can’t beat a “hard copy” or printed book. Good luck to everyone, and I hope the winners enjoy and expand their creations.

  • Kim

    WordPress is a monster when you look at all the features and functions of this one application. Having a WordPress book is one thing but also web features like a podcast is wonderful. Just having a published book about a software application is not good enough anymore. Pairing it with online content is what will give you a boost in learning and understanding the product. My hands are itching to try this out.

  • Jane

    This book looks easy to use and suitable for both beginners and more experienced users. It even explains what WordPress is, and that it could used for building a website, which a lot of beginners wouldn’t know. The tone is friendly without being patronising. The screenshots and links to videos are other useful additions. I think this book will become a WordPress favourite!

  • http://www.dcypher.co.uk Steve Webster

  • Francis

    I’ve always been baffled by WordPress. I mean, I used to do simple customizations before but have drifted to freelance web designing the past few years. Now that I want to “go back” and try on developing web sites and blog sites based on WordPress again, I think the whole thing morphed into one complicated thing through years that I already become afraid to even touch it. I think this book would be a great companion in revisiting an old friend and once again reconnect with WordPress. Count me in!
