WordPress For Dummies 2nd Ed.

November 24th, 2008
WordPress Weekly

This Friday at 8PM EST on WordPress Weekly, our special one hour guest will be Lisa Sabin Wilson who is the author of the book, WordPress For Dummies. During the show, we plan on discussing how hard it is to write about a piece of software that moves 100mph in print format, Lisa’s background in web design and what it is like to theme for WordPress, WordPress For Dummies The Second Edition and much more.

This Thursday is Thanksgiving here in the states. On Friday, I want to give my thanks to those of you who continue to show your support while telling your friends about the show and downloading it on a regular basis. On Friday, we will be giving away two signed copies of WordPress For Dummies 2nd Edition. Lisa will sign the copies and ship them once the new edition has been published. So how will we give these away?

One book will be given away to a lucky caller while the other copy will be given away to a lucky recipient in the chat room. So be sure to join us live this Friday, for a fun filled discussion related to the book as well as WordPress. (Special thanks to Lisa for donating the two signed copies.)

    I think it’s hilarious that this book did so well. Everyone who bought the first edition will have a nice couch leveller when WordPress 2.7 comes out. Kudos to Lisa for working it.

    Very much looking forward to the show, Jeff – thanks for having me on!

    Patrick, the people who bought the first edition should have no problems, at this point, transitioning to 2.7 – as they already have the basic mechanics of working with WordPress. If they want to buy the 2nd edition, I hope it helps them along their way. Of course, there are the folks out there discovering WordPress for the first time, as 2.7 comes out – – so it’s my hope the book helps newcomers to WordPress, as well.

    A good couch leveller comes in handy when you need it. ;)

      Wow. The author herself. That is very cool.

      I look forward to the interview. I can see where the basics remain the same, so I suppose that is a valid point. Also, companies and some individuals may opt to not move to WordPress 2.7 (either right away or ever), so the book would still be a good choice for some time.

    Hope, it’ll have the screen shots of WP 2.7.

    If not this one will be a waste. anyway I’m going to be online to be a lucky winner :)
