Smashing WordPress: Beyond the Blog, 3rd Edition

Out of print!

The third edition of my popular book, Smashing WordPress: Beyond the Blog, is available now all across the US, Europe, and more!

I’m pleased with this third edition of Smashing WordPress: Beyond the Blog. It is updated to modern WordPress code standards, it features brand new examples as well as updated old ones, and have gotten an overhaul all over. If you skipped the second edition, then this is a must buy in my opinion. Then again I might be a bit biased…

Buy it from your favorite retailer, or from my store page if you want to send me some petty coffee cash with your purchase by using my affiliate links.
