WordPress is one of the most popular open-source (free) blog and content management system programs. It is written in PHP and uses the MySQLR database. Most people use it to create and manage a personal or commercial blog. However, you can also use it to create a website. This book, by Hasin Hayder, will teach you what you need to know to create and manage your own blog or content-based website with WordPress.

For the novice, Hayder begins by talking about what a blog is, the main parts of a blog and what they do. Then he introduces you to WordPress and discusses the options you have for hosting your blog such as the website dedicated to WordPress,, or on your own server. He goes into detail about these startup decisions and others such as security, setting permissions and working with the MySQL database.

Now that you have the framework for your blog, it is time to have some fun.WordPress is a theme-based program which means that it is easy to create a special look for your blog. One of the most creative tasks when creating a blog is customizing the look for your blog. The author discusses how to do this in several ways, the easiest and fastest way being to modify an existing template. Hayder shows you where to find the best user created templates on the web and how to customize them to your heart’s content. He also covers how to use an online theme builder application to generate a theme for your blog. Hayder then shows you how to create your own themes from scratch by writing your own code and how you can add some nice features. This is a fun way to get some practice or a short introduction to the PHP and CSS web languages.

Next, Hayder covers how to use some of the fun WordPress features to make your blogging easier such as posting to your blog remotely. Once your blog or website is ready, it is time to “market” or publicize your new blog. Hayder covers the most popular ways to get the word out such as creating RSS feeds, pod casting and audio blogs. The main purpose of a blog is to communicate with others within a community setting. As the creator and manager of your own blog, there are a few simple tasks necessary to manage your blog. Hayder discusses these tasks. He also covers how to troubleshoot some of the most common problems you might encounter and how to upgrade, backup and restore your blog.

Hasin Hayder has worked in the field of web application for many years. He has developed several themes and plug-ins for WordPress and runs the WordPress4SQLite project.
