Well, actually, the book isn’t just about WordPress. But it does devote six chapters to our favorite blogging platform. The book I’m talking about is Building Online Communities with Drupal, phpBB, and WordPress, co-authored by Mike Little.
The result is six chapters on using WordPress to help build an online community. Although I wrote the book using version 1.5.x most of the WordPress chapters are version agnostic. This isnâ€™t a â€œhow to use WordPressâ€ book (the excellent WordPress Codex is good for that). This is a book about how to use WordPress to help you build an online community.
It’s published by Apress, who really seem to get the Open Source community. I’ve got several other books by them, and I hope to write up some reviews eventually. I’ll have to see if I can add Mike’s book to my collection, too!
