Chapter 4– Building a WordPress Powered Website
After just reading the chapter title, I was hesitant to read this chapter. I figured, “I already have a WordPress account, what more is there to know?” I continued to read anyways because I knew that I should. After getting more into the chapter I realized that I don’t even know HALF of what there is to know about WordPress, its capabilities, and how to build a powerful website.
There are many figures that helped me get a better idea of what the chapter was trying to say. There is a section called, “The Anatomy Of A WordPress Site,” and it gave great specific information about the mail elements of a WordPres site such as: header, navigation menu, main body area, etc.
Another part of the chapter I found to be helpful was the security settings and other settings to complete right away. There was a lot of information in that section that I did not know about WordPress and I found to be ineteresting and informative.
There were parts in the chapter that I already knew about WordPress, but I’m glad that I took the time to read and look deeper into this chapter. I found some helpful information about the site that I believe would be beneficial even to the most dedicated WordPress user.
