New WordPress Book – WordPress 3 Site Blueprints

I recently came across a new WordPress based book that is different from most of the ones on the market in that it provides blue prints for creating specific purpose sites using WordPress. The book is called WordPress 3 Site Blueprints and was written by Heather R. Wallace and published by Packt Publishing. The first chapter of the book covers a topic that is still very relevant, Migrating a static website to WordPress. Considering the amount of businesses still switching from static based sites to dynamic content this is definitely a use case worth knowing about. The table of contents is as follows:

  • Chapter 2: Building A Community Portal
  • Chapter 3: Building An E-commerce Website
  • Chapter 4: Building A Local Classified Ads Website
  • Chapter 5: Building A Consumer Review Website
  • Chapter 6: Building A Job Board Website
  • Chapter 7: Building A Microblogging Website
  • Chapter 8: Building A Local Business Directory
  • Chapter 9: Building A Membership Website

As you can see by the table of contents, this isn’t a beginners book nor is it a how to install themes and plugin book. Instead, the book lives up to it’s name by giving you the blueprints to build 10 different specific use websites. Before making the purchase, I encourage you to read the sample chapter which is chapter 4: building a local classified ads site.
