Review

Rating: 8

A good overview of Wordpress with plenty of useful tips and snippets that cover everything from the basics (how the Wordpress loop works) to nitty-gritty details (how to use SQL to bulk-edit posts). Even if you’re familiar with Wordpress, this is a good review and ties together disparate elements very well. Surprisingly, even though it covers and older version (2.8, so still somewhat recent), the important information is highly relevant. The sections on plugins deal with design decisions and reasons to use plugins versus functions.php and is highly relevant to any version of Wordpress.
