Digging into WordPress – A Must Buy!

I really like WordPress. Actually, perhaps I could dare say that I love it.

And for many of you, well, you already knew that.

And perhaps, for just as many, I’ve encouraged you to consider using WordPress as your blogging platform of choice.

And, maybe, just maybe, I’ve challenged (encouraged?) some of you to consider diving a little bit deeper below the surface and explore some of the “development” side of WordPress.


A great book, Digging Into WordPress, that has been released for a time (in PDF format) has finally released in a printed format and I must say that it’s a must-buy for those interested in learning a little more about WordPress than the fact that it’s a combination of two words “Word” and “Press”…

… I kid.

But, seriously, Digging into WordPress is a great book and I’ve already read it twice, cover to cover. In fact, although I’ve been developing in WordPress for a while, I’ve learned a great deal and am using a number of their strategies and techniques in an upcoming WordPress Theme I plan to release.

It’s going to be good. In fact, it’s going to be great, and I attribute some of the planned success from the book.

Buy a PDF version, or go “hardcore” and get a physical copy (not really hardcore… but the spiral-bound style of it is epic!).

Tell them John (or @Human3rror) sent you! You won’t regret it.

    I've been trying to find a book that goes beyond the basics ("How to post, Where to comment") in WordPress. I'm looking to simply customize existing themes not necessarily develop my own. Is this a good book for that? (can't wait till WordCamp!)

      this could be a very good book for that. there's a few others out there (just check your local bookstore) but i've been waiting for something from these guys for a while.

    We must be thinking alike, I just bought this yesterday. I'm looking forward to learning more about wordpress through this new year. One cool advantage of the pdf book is that they will keep updating it as wordpress improves.

      Yup. forgot to mention that…

    awesome dude.
    I shudder to think that I did not know about this PDF before it became a book.
    but rectify it – I will, by purchasing the PDF.

    This looks like a good place for me to start. I wish I had your brain for about a week so I could design my own theme and then I would give it back to you. But this looks like a good book to get my own brain and design my own theme…possibly.

    Hey John, you can tell your advertisers that you have influence. I bought this on your recommendation and it looks like I'm not the only one. :)

    This book looks great. I think I'm going to set page 20 as my wallpaper for a while.
