Paid members: wish you could create your own blog site? Last month we brought you a portion of Build a Website for Free. This month we continue that theme, giving you for free two chapters of Using WordPress, by Tris Hussey.
One of the top blogging tools on the Web, WordPress is used by most of the leading blog sites. Using WordPress is a complete tutorial for would-be bloggers and is supplemented by integrated, online videos, podcasts, and more.
Chapter 4, “Configuring WordPress to Work Its Best,” covers the basic WordPress settings needed to operate a WordPress blog. It also reviews how to moderate comments and prevent spam.
Chapter 9, “Creating and Managing Content with WordPress,” walks readers through creating and editing posts, using tags and categories, and adding images with the built-in image editor.
