Pre-Order Professional WordPress Second Edition

Professional WordPress Second Edition is now available for pre-order on Amazon!

A lot has changed with WordPress since the original book was released, which was written for WordPress version 2.9. The second edition, written around WordPress version 3.5, is jam packed with awesome WordPress knowledge. Not only did we update every single chapter in the book, we added some completely new chapters! The second edition features an entire chapter dedicated to custom post types and taxonomies. We also dedicated an entire chapter to WordPress Multisite, the powerful Network feature available in WordPress.

The book is scheduled to be released on January 1st, 2013. Make sure you pre-order your copy of Professional WordPress Second Edition today!

  1. Would this book be helpful for those who are just starting out with WP? Setting up blogs is nothing, I need something to show me how to find the meat of WP where I can make changes to and create a child theme. I know nothing about WP except setting up a blog. I know HTML, CSS and JavaScript only.

    • Absolutely! This book dives into all aspects of WordPress including creating custom child themes, plugins, understanding how the Core of WordPress works, etc.

  2. Awesome!!! Just started with WordPress a few months ago, right now testing, and specially learning!!! I started reading the first release, is there a big difference between the first edition and second edition?

    • Professional WordPress Second Edition was written around WordPress 3.5, so it has a lot of new topics like custom post types and taxonomies, Multisite, and so much more! It’s definitely worth getting the second edition if you own the first
