Getting started with WordPress can be hard. We’re here to make it a little easier.

In the WordPress Visual QuickStart Guide we take the guesswork out of working with WordPress. From the basics (WordPress.org or WordPress.com?) to creating your very first theme from scratch, we walk you through each step with clear, concise instructions and lots of visuals.

Here’s what Peachpit Press has to say about the WordPress Visual QuickStart Guide:
