WordPress is the most popular content management system (CMS) on the web. Users of the WordPress
platform can easily publish their content on the Internet because of its intuitive user interface. A large
segment of the WordPress user community wants to delve a bit deeper into the platform so that they can
not only publish content, but also make their websites look fantastic by designing, customizing, and
manipulating their WordPress themes. In fact, as a WordPress designer and consultant myself, two of
the most frequent questions I hear from my clients are “How can I design my own theme for
WordPress?” and “How can I design and build my entire website with WordPress?”
WordPress Web Design For Dummies, 3rd Edition, answers those questions and unlocks the mysteries
of designing websites with the WordPress content management system. If you have ever tried to tweak
an existing WordPress theme file, or even design your own WordPress theme from scratch, and have
found it to be intimidating or too difficult to understand, this book breaks it down for you in a friendly
and easy-to-understand manner.
