1. This is a fairly comprehensive book covering not only Theme development, but plug-ins, multisite, UX, and more. If you're strictly looking for theme development, this may not be the best fit for you. There is only one chapter dedicated to "Theme Development". Of course, the preceding chapters discuss loops, database manipulations, custom taxonomies and etc, but these would be something to learn once you actually know how to write a theme. If you're looking to increase the overall knowledge of WP development, this is going to be extremely helpful.
2. Some experience with WP is a must. By "experience", I mean a basic understanding of how WP theme and plug-ins are structured. If you have seen a code for themes or plug-ins, it will make understanding a lot easier. On the other hand, the book isn't going to be much useful for beginners. If you have little or no experience with WP development, take a look at Digging into WordPress.
3. The book provides plenty of example codes, but they are meant to be examples, not snippets. I wouldn't recommend the book to someone who are looking for a quick tutorial/cookbook on WP theme development. Finding snippets will still require lots of Googling (or days of wrestling with the code yourself).
4. Any developers would know that finding an organized tutorial on WP development is difficult. Yes, there are more than plenty of free/premium sources, but each tutorial covers only limited part of WP development and finding a comprehensive guide is always a challenge. I am very, very happy that this book responds to that concern.
In short, I would recommend this to anyone who is looking to learn the dynamics of WP.
The book's chapters are arranged in 3 major sections. Chapters 1 thru 4 are a top-level look at WordPress. The history and development of WordPress is discussed as well as the presentation of a functional overview, discussion of installation (including a valuable discussion of debugging errors you may have during installation), a code overview and a tour of the core. There is good stuff here. For instance if you are unclear of the distinction between tags and categories, this will clear things up for you. Or if you've ever wondered what the Turbo option in the Dashboard is, your answer will be found in these chapters. There is even an excellent discussion of advanced wp-config options that is sure to be helpful to the developer as well as a lot of information on configuring your .htaccess file.
Chapters 5 thru 8 thoroughly explore the Loop, understanding the WordPress database and how to directly manipulate it (database queries, building your own taxonomies, direct database manipulation), plugins development & WordPress integration (shortcodes, widgets, plugin security) and theme development (modifying existing themes, creating new themes.)
Chapters 9 thru 15 cover everything else including content aggregation (how to get information into your WordPress site by various means such as XML feeds, integrating twitter, RSS feeds), creating a user experience through consistent navigation, design elements, how to structure your information, searching your site, mobile access & statistics, cache performance, dealing with spam, using WordPress as a content management system (CMS). For developers considering a new web site with WordPress, migrating an existing site to WP is an important consideration and this is discussed in Chapter 14. Chapter 15 concludes the book with a discussion on the WordPress developer community; how you can contribute, working on the core using Subversion and a look at other WordPress resources.
I am not a hardcore developer by any means. My experience with PHP and CSS is marginal, yet I learned a lot from reading this book. Using the code samples helped further my understanding of PHP and this has given me a new interest in learning more about the "inside" of WordPress.
This is a substantial book on WordPress especially geared to developers and secondarily to enthusiasts who wish to dig into WordPress more deeply and begin to explore what makes WordPress tick and how to extend WordPress. Even though the topics are discussed at an advanced level, the writing is not nearly as dry and cumbersome as other technical books can be.
This is an extremely valuable resource for the developer yet there is a thorough approach taken in the early chapters that even a fledgling WP user would find valuable (but not a non-technically minded reader.) However, it is certainly not an appropriate "first" book for the non-technical person simply desiring to get started with WordPress. There are more appropriate books for the non-technical reader. Having said that, there are certain users who may be inspired enough by the easily readable approach taken by the authors to be propelled to learn more because of the depth of information that is contained in this book. Merely using some of the existing code samples can help you learn more about writing and debugging PHP code and serve as a platform for future growth in your knowledge and skills.
This is a stand-out book on WordPress and anyone doing serious development with WordPress could benefit from "Professional WordPress." Highly recommended.
But great books, technical books, on WordPress that are really good are few and far between. Yet WP itself is downloaded 50,000 times a DAY and millions - MILLIONS - of sites run on it. So why the heck aren't there more good books? I'm not sure.
With that, let me say I love this book. Now there are some things I could do without. The chapter on custom post types (my most referenced chapter so far) has a LOT of straight-from-the-codex stuff that I could have looked up myself. And the guys don't do a whole lot of explaining. This is a minor complaint. The rest of the book is excellent.
Which brings me to another point - the books that are in the technical realm assume - this one included - that you've somehow mastered the lingo and working of WP itself. Now, don't get me wrong and death-comment me, there are lots of mid-level explanations to be found here. Just sometimes, it seems like I need that in-between book that doesn't exist for WP. That one that takes you from explaining the dashboard and how to establish that first database connection to the point where you're ready to learn how to code template pages.
Right now, I'm sorry to say, I own just about every "real" WP book in print. I've not found that bridge book yet. I'll buy every WP book I can find and read every web page till I get it, but I'd love to see a intermediate book on the level of Professional WordPress.
If you're past the installs, know the difference between wordpress.com and wordpress.org, have dabbled a little in the guts of a theme and know what the functions.php file is for, you will love this book. Simple as that. I know I've qualified every statement I've made and I'm about to do that here but really, there's no other book on the market (none for WP 3.5 anyway) that matches Professional WP for being, well, professional. Here's that qualifier: I'd love to see it double in size. Or perhaps take out the codex pages and reference them then give us the same size book with more meat. I'd love to see the CPT chapter expanded with examples (or more examples) and maybe some more on how things like the css order is derived.
I guess I just want MORE. I love those bible and unleashed books where they combine (what essentially is repeated) documentation with how-to-do-it stuff. Sure, some of that is here but I still would like more.
(I was a programmer of desktop apps, so I know something of coding, though never used php before. I would like a few thousand pages of here's the code, here's what it looks like run through WP. You know what I mean? I want to understand better, from ONE source, how to not only create that CPT, but then make it look like I want. Anyone else?)
Buy it. You'll probably want to buy others as well, but this is your foundation book for advanced WP development. Period.
What I like best is that it's written for a programmer, without all the gushing about how great a system it is. The facts, with just enough evaluation to say what's important.
Way to go, guys!
And I got more than I bargained for.
Professional WordPress is an EXTREMELY detailed book, providing TONS of information for the Wordpress designer. However, because of its in-depth content, I have to admit it was a little over my head. (My first hint should have been the word "Professional.")
This would be definite must have reference guide for a web designer focusing on blogs. And even intermediates such as myself can walk away with some helpful information. Novices, however, should steer clear lest Wordpress becomes more complicated than it should be.
