This week we were assigned to read chapter 4 in A Survival Guide to Social Media and Web 2.0 Optimization.

Chapter 4 is about building a WordPress powered website and shows you step by step. Some things I learned from reading this chapter include:

  • The main areas of a WordPress site include: a header, navigation menu, the main body, the sidebars, the footer, sidebar widgets, ans static pages.
  • WordPress users can choose from many different templates to customize their website.
  • Plugins are what give WordPress tremendous power and flexibility.
