WordPress 3 Site Blueprints by Heather R. Wallace will show you how to migrate from an existing static website to a WordPress blog.
Each of the other chapters is devoted to the construction of a different type of site that can be created with WordPress and the right combination of themes and/or plugins. As you follow along, you will learn by doing because each of these nine chapters shows you how to build a WordPress-powered site from start to finish. That means that, by the time you reach the end of every chapter, you will have a fully-functional site online.
Each chapter provides easy-to-understand, step-by-step instructions along with screenshots to help you follow along easily. In addition, detailed information is provided to help you optimally configure each and every plugin and theme mentioned in this book so that you can get the most out of each of these sites. By the time you reach the end of each blueprint, you will have a fully functional site online that is ready for use as is or that you may customize further if you so desire.
