    looking for wordpress reference

    Can anyone point me to a good reference on using wordpress? I've been to wordpress.org and then to Amazon and see several possibilities, but the reviews are ambivalent. Sitepoint doesn't have a book out yet on wordpress or any in-length how-to/explanation articles (unless I missed it, which is possible ) or I'd just go there.

    If anyone has found a reference that works well with them, will you please let me know? Thanks for your time -- rbfree

    WordPress Codex

    The only "reference" I know of is the online codex. True, there is a gap between the "non-tech" usability of the application and the "some scripting knowledge assumed" of the codex. It would be nice to have an incremental reference for those that fall inbetween the two. One of the best ways I have found to learn is to study the code of various themes and plugins to see how they work. Just the same, the endeavor is less than optimal.

    thanks mitteneague

    I think your approach to learning this stuff is most sensible. In my case I'll augment it with a basic intro text (in the mail already). Thanks for the help. -- rbfree

    It's not really a reference, but I find WordPressGarage.com to be a good source of tips and hints on all sides of WordPress.

    Ryan, thanks for the reference! (It might not be a book, but it is definitely a reference.) I appreciate your help. -- Best regards -- rbfree
