Christine Ely’s WordPress in a Day – Free Themes Edition has been designed as a step-by-step guide to help you create a professional WordPress website and blog in a single day. It utilizes only free themes and resources all of which are described in the book and are instantly available. The book starts out by using the WordPress Twenty Eleven theme and then switches themes later in the book to the highly customizable (but also free) zeeBusiness theme.
The book effectively builds the website: http://www.twentytenwp.com but by entering your own content, color preference and images, you can develop something very different. Whatever you decide to create, it can all be done in a day.
The book teaches you to develop Pages and Posts for static website material and dynamic material for Blogs, Articles and more. It shows you how to embed videos and images, contact forms and eCommerce systems as well as creating content that can be shared with all the major social networking sites. You will learn what Plugins are and how to use them. You will learn all about Widgets, Sidebars and Search Engine Optimization.
