Do you want to build your own website but don't know where to start? Have you been put off by all the jargon and gobbledygook of other Internet guides? If so then this plain, easy WordPress tutorial is the ideal place to start.

Now a #1 Amazon Best Seller, this popular step-by-step guide by expert Sarah McHarry will walk you through the essential first steps to building your own website or blog using WordPress.

In eight easy lessons you will have your own website up and running – without needing to know any geeky computer code! And, in the remaining 12 lessons, you'll learn all you need to know about creating a website and making it into your own, unique, web presence.

What you'll learn in this book:

How to register your own domain and get the right WordPress hostingHow to install WordPress with a few clicks of the mouseHow to design a professional-looking websiteHow to add and format your contentHow to use graphics and imagesAll about themes, plugins, widgets and other WordPress tools… and lots more..
If you want to make a website that looks like it was designed by a pro then WordPress is the ideal tool to use. Designing a website need not be difficult or expensive if you have the right guidance. Sarah's WordPress tutorial walks you through creating a website yourself using step-by-step lessons that are easy to follow. Making a website as a beginner has never been easier!

Why should you build your own website on your own domain instead of using a free service?

The answer is that, with your own privately registered domain and hosting account, YOU own and control the website, not anybody else. You can put whatever you like on your site and no-one can tell you otherwise. You can make your site look and behave how you want. You're the boss.

And, with your own website, you can build your own distinctive 'brand', whether you are a business or a community group, an individual, or whatever… Your domain becomes your own exclusive web address, your own piece of online virtual 'real estate' that plays its part in publicizing your mission or message. Creating a website on your own domain gives you identity, visibility and, indeed, status.

But don't you need a professional web designer to make a good job building a website?
No, definitely not! This was the case in the early days of the Internet because only a few tech-savvy geeks knew and understood the computer language (HTML) required. But as the technology has advanced, so have the tools to build websites become more accessible. WordPress is one of these tools and WordPress is the subject of this e-book.

But how much does it cost to make a website?The answer is just a few bucks per month for hosting. If you create your own website using WordPress, you don't have to spend another cent.

And what if you're looking to start a blog?Well, the same instructions apply. WordPress was originally designed as a blogging platform and this ebook shows you just how to build a blog using the same techniques as designing a website.

Important: this guide is up-to-date for the latest release of WordPress!

Whether you want to create a simple WordPress blog or design a full-blown ecommerce site, Sarah's 'WordPress To Go' will start you off on the right foot.

I got introduced to wordpress by an adventure when I was looking into ways of building my own website without using a web designer. I started to build the site, but it was looking like that of an amateur, as I could not use/edit most of the dashboard functions. This then made me to look for a wordpress book on Amazon. I bought the first book “24-hour WordPress Trainer” but this book did not really helped me with the way I would have wanted my site to look. I then went back to Amazon to look for other wordpress books, and them came across “WordPress To Go” by Sarah McHarry. I decided to give the book a go, based on the reviews of people who have bought this book. As soon as I opened the book, I knew outright that this book will help me a great deal in achieving my dream of building at least a good wordpress site. I was not disappointed since Sarah began with how to buy a domain name and hosting of your site.

Does what it says on the tin!

I knew nothing about WordPress when I bought this book, having used Serif WebPlus exclusively for many years. However, Serif no longer supports WebPlus and its time to move on.

I got this when it was a free download. But it’s now gone back up to about 3.50. Never fear, this is a quite outstanding easy to read and easy to carry out guide. Well worth the small amount the author wants for it. If you follow the author’s suggestions and do things in order, I have no doubt that most people could get a website up and working in 24 hours. The book is largely jargon free and holds you by the hand without insulting you.

This book is true to its title. It really does take you from zero to having your own website up and running.

I’ve created three websites/blogs on WordPress and every single time I seem to come up against new problems – either because I have a short memory or because they are changing the goalposts. Having bought Sarah McHarry’s book I have managed to find a solution to virtually all these problems and I can’t thank her enough. I didn’t follow her tips on hosting, or on downloading the WordPress software as I’d already established other sites on WordPress, which seemed to me cheaper and simpler (though I may well be wrong), but otherwise, all you need to know about how to create pages and posts, and what the difference is, is here. I don’t find WordPress particularly intuitive but it’s a 100 times easier now I have this book.

Gem of a book but missing index

 on 7 August 2013

This book is great value and gets you results quickly. It does not pretend to cover advanced topics only the basics and does that well. I drop one star because the illustrations are too small and the book lacks an index. I also had a lot of difficulty with Lesson 13 which seems to suggest you can discard the default Home Page and nominate another page to be your Home Page. I tried this but it never worked properly, there were always unwanted side-effects. The solution was to uncheck this box: Appearance -> Theme Options -> Home Page -> Enable Custom Front Page. Once that was unchecked I could customize the default Home Page to what I wanted so there was no need to remove it and substitute another in its place. It’s a dubious idea anyway because I read somewhere that the default Home Page is tied into the php code. So if the author could improve Lesson 13 that would be great. In Lesson 14 almost a page is wasted on only describing child themes when in the same space an example could have shown us how to actually do something useful such as override some css to change the look of a page. But in spite of these minor issues the book is still a gem.

Amazingly clear and easy-to-follow book for website novices. Highly recommended

A fantastic book – I couldn’t recommend it more if, like me, you know absolutely nothing about building a website. I followed Sarah McHarry’s easy-to-follow text, written in plain language for non-technies like me, and created exactly what I wanted – a simple, elegant tribute to the men on my local War Memorial. No doubt if you want to get into more complicated realms of computer-speak, codes etc, this book would be too simple for you, but for me, and lots of others like me, it absolutely hits the nail on the head.
