The book was first published in January 2015 at Amazon Kindle Store. However there’re other books about WordPress after it was published. Some are offered free. The author has not revised it since it was published. It’s guide as the word implies. The guide only enables you to create just a simple site in order to communicate with people online. It doesn’t teach you all the web development dynamics. Once you simple site is up and running, you must also expect to encounter a bit of WordPress glitches, which includes html code errors, site malfunctioning. These technicalities sometimes require some expert knowledge. The book doesn’t provide such information.

In the normal cause of event, WordPress has FAQ platform where you post your question related to site malfunctioning, platform members may provide assistance.
However, from my own experience with FAQ component, your question may be replied by members who have advanced web development knowledge, they have a tendency to regard you as someone who have the same knowledge. What they normally do is to reply to your question as if they’re talking to an experienced website developer. I’m referring to WordPress jargon, a language that may be foreign to you as a newbie.
In that situation, Fiverr.com can assist you to handle your site malfunctioning at a small fee,($5 per specific gig). The book WordPress Guide to create a website is a valuable tool to acquire basic web development knowledge
