    I am very new to wordpress. I am working with the visual quickstart wordpress book. It is telling me to find a "sidebar widgets" button On the Dashboard, under Presentation, but I don't see it. Any ideas?

    You need to be using a Widgets enabled theme, and you need to have the Widgets plugin installed and activated.

    I'm surprised that this is not mentioned in the book. Widgets are not part of WordPress by default (yet).

    Get the Widgets Plugin from http://automattic.com/code/widgets .

    Thanks. That helped. You should write the book!

    Anyway, do you have any suggestions on books or sites that will help me get up to speed on all of this quick. I am brand new to the php/wordpress world, but determined to become a pro.
