Welcome to WordPress for Bad Eyes!
It is my intention to write more Books in the future such as how to set up your own eCommerce site but currently I have just one available.
A Beginners Guide Revised
This is the Updated version of the “A Beginners Guide”, the first in my series of Books for those wanting to set up their own WordPress website.
Originally it was written for screen reader Users but as the Site Name reads, it is for people with “Bad Eyes”, that can mean Blind, Partially Sighted but does not exclude anyone who wants to learn how to set up their own Website, whether it is a personal Blog or business site.
While the language is written as though you were using a screen reader it is plain enough for you to understand if you dont use one.
A lot of things have changed in WordPress since I originally wrote the Guide and this is a reflection of the changes to the date of this writing.
I’ve added some new Plugins to my list of recommended ones and no longer use the Badeyes Skeleton Theme” as I now have 2 Themes in the WordPress Repository, one approved, Badeyes 2014 Child Theme and the other awaiting approval the Priority Theme.
If you read the first edition you’ll find a lot of new and updated information in this issue and I will wrap up the book by guiding you through the steps to create 2 different layouts using the Badeyes 2014 Child Theme.
If you didn’t read the first Edition then this Book/Guide is written from the perspective that you are new to WordPress and dont know the first thing about setting up a WordPress site.
I use easy to understand language and walk you from start to finish on setting up a basic Blog or Business site whether you use a screen reader or not.
This is a must read if you plan on reading more of my Books as I’m going to switch from laymans language to assuming that you know the ins and outs of navigating the WordPress interface so I can give you more relevant content and less detail on how to get around.
