  • Sample Forms

    I got this book, this book is having the complete information about the step by step process for creation of the websites,
    I can suggest this is the best book for the website creation.

  • Maureen Dee

    I got this very excitedly and was all ready to get into it but it doesn't work on Kindle Cloud, oh well. Thank you anyway for giving me the chance to at least try.

  • cynthia

    I really like the book so far, but I don’t see a menu item for “links” in the Dashboard sidebar (re deleting the blog roll). It is a menu item specific to particular themes or has it been removed from the standard dashboard or ? I am completely new to WordPress.

    • Andy Williams

      It looks like the latest version of WordPress may have removed this although I do still see it in my existing sites that were upgraded to the latest WordPress. I’ll update the book when I get a chance to see what happened to that menu.
