As previously promised, Wiley Publishing and I release to you a bonus chapter for readers of WordPress For Dummies, First Edition. It is now available for immediate download on this site, as well as the WordPress For Dummies page on the Dummies.com site (it should be up there in a day, or two). This free bonus chapter covers a lot of what is new in WordPress 2.5 and gives you some insight into the Second Edition of WordPress For Dummies. This chapter covers information like:
- Avatars (and how to add them to your theme)
- Adding Media to your posts (including gallery short codes to add photo galleries)
- Navigating your way through the new WordPress 2.5 Administration Panel
- Configuring Dashboard options in the new editable WordPress 2.5 Dashboard
- And more!
As I work on writing the Second Edition of the book, it’s my sincere hope you find this bonus chapter helpful and informative.
(* Disclaimer: This bonus chapter assumes a certain existing level of comfort with the WordPress software — and it’s an addendum to my book, WordPress For Dummies, which covers the platform through version 2.3.3)
