    Hi All,

    I'm pretty new here and wanted to really learn how WordPress works (the basics and such) - Is there any good books you could recommend or even video tutorials?

    I'm learning PHP at the moment, so I'm getting used to it and I'm pretty familiar or should I say comfortable with HTML and CSS. If anyone could help me out with learning WordPress it would be much appreciated!

    Thanks in advance

    Raphael

    WordPress for Dummies might work, but the New to WordPress article in Codex will also get you into trouble ;)

    You can learn a lot just by trying it, and then, when you have a SPECIFIC question, search on Google for it. There are answers in places like:

    Here, this forum

    The Codex documentation links (helpful to search google for your question plus the word "Codex")

    WordPress Weekly Podcast, and WP Community Podcast
    http://www.jeffro2pt0.com/wordpress-weekly

    http://wp-community.org/

    Searching Google for "wordpress tutorial" and whatever area you're interested in.

    The problem with books is, they are usually written on an out-dated version of WP. And they can't fit all question-answers in a book, they have to guess what your needs are.

    Many many more good (and free) answer links,
