  1. Hi,
    I caught your web page on email text and mailto instructions etc and was very impressed with the content.

    I am now looking at your ebook and wondering if it will suit my requirements. I have a girl that does a few web sites and uses html with forms and tables etc and absolutely refuses to use WordPress. I reckon that its through fear and ignorance, but I want to try and cover this area myself. I’m not stupid, but by the same token not well versed in web stuff overall, although can pick it up reasonably quickly.
    Will your ebook be the right instructional do you think ??

    1. Thanks for your comments and your interest in my e-book. The ebook might be suitable for your needs, but there’s a few thing you should know first. Firstly, it doesn’t go into too much detail about setting up a website or installing WordPress for the complete beginner. It explains ‘what’ you need to do, but doesn’t hold your hand with regard to buying a domain name or buying website hosting. However, once you’ve got WordPress installed, I believe the ebook is ideal. :)

      Secondly, I wrote the book a few years back and the section covering the Page/Post editor doesn’t quite match the way WordPress works currently. I’ve been meaning to update this particular section, but to be honest the way the editor works now, is fairly self-explanatory anyway.

      I hope this helps with your decision.
