    A handy read with plenty of good advice. Downloaded all three versions. The .pdf and .epub versions look great, but the Kindle version may need some layout tweaking. The justified text is slightly annoying. Beyond that, I’m truly appreciative of the authors’ efforts in helping the WordPress community.

    It’s good to see that such valuable information is given away for no cost.

    I recently installed an activity plugin on WordPress and monitored that there are login attempts on a minute basis. I think this days there are almost more bots out there than real users.

    Hi James,

    My blog was hacked twice last year. No matter what I did after the first time they managed to hack it again. I guess I was the only one to blame; I used so many plugins without checking them. Today I know better. Thank you so much for this recommendation, I learned a lot.

    I’ve downloaded the Kindle version, as I like to read on my eReader more than on my smartphone, I appreciate your effort of adding three different formats on this ebook.

    There’s some great information in this ebook! Some of it is (or should be) common sense for a website admin, but much of it is a new concept for WordPress users. Awesome to see it being given away for FREE!

    Definitely a must read. I’m familiar with Code Poet’s books, “WordPress meets responsive design” was great so I’m surely give this one a try too.
