Continuing along with my line of WordPress-themed books, I am currently working on adding a new title to my WordPress arsenal: WordPress Web Design For Dummies (published by Wiley Publishing: For Dummies division).
I would give a word of thanks and gratitude to Wiley Publishing, in particular my editor Amy Fandrei for their continued support, encouragement and faith in me as an author of their most popular series of books on the WordPress platform!
WordPress Web Design For Dummies will focus completely on designing web sites with WordPress. The book assumes you already have knowledge of how to use WordPress (ie: you have already read my other book, WordPress For Dummies) – and you want to learn more about designing web sites with WordPress.
This book is for:
- Bloggers who want to spice up their existing WordPress blogs
- Designers who want to delve into WordPress theme design practices
- Anyone who wants to learn how to make child themes based on popular theme frameworks
- Folks who would like to explore using WordPress as a CMS to create sites for
- E-Commerce to sell products and services
- Photo Galleries and Portfolios
- Social Communities using BuddyPress (extending on the information in my other book,BuddyPress For Dummies)
- Small and large business
- …and more!
I am currently in the process of writing this book (yes – in tandem with my other new book: WordPress All In One Desk Reference!) and have fast-tracked the writing process in hopes of getting it out on the shelves by early 2011!
I would like to hear from you!
As I am delving into the chapters over the next 2-3 months – I would love to hear from the WordPress designing public on what topics you would like to see covered in depth in a book like this? I cannot promise I will cover every single possible design topic known to man – - but as it relates to WordPress, would love to hear of any areas you would like to read and learn about and I will do my absolute best to make sure its covered.
What do you think? What areas of WordPress web design would you like to read about??
