The highly praised resource returns with updated content, examples, and code downloads

WordPress is the most popular self-hosted open source website software in use today, and the latest version makes it even simpler to operate. Packed with real-world examples for load balancing and multiusers, this esteemed resource replaces some of the more basic material with more advanced content. Every single chapter has been reworked to provide the most current and proper methods for developing and designing in WordPress. Coverage of HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript and new chapters on custom post types, custom taxonomies, Multisite, and extensions of themes bring the content of this book completely up-to-date and provides you with all you need to deploy successful WordPress sites.

  • Offers an overview of the WordPress system and describes what happens when a WordPress-generated web page is displayed
  • Demonstrates extending WordPress through plugins and customizing it via themes
  • Combines a developer view of user experience and optimization with the deployment requirements for performance, security, and measurement
  • Includes code downloads and code samples from the book's website

You'll be hard pressed to find a reliable resource with more advanced content than Professional WordPress, Second Edition!
