But like I said, even if you do your research, you can’t help but still make errors when developing and building your WordPress site.

At the same time, there are mistakes that you can easily side-step so you don’t have to worry about the long-term problems they will cause. This said, below are the mistakes you should avoid at all cost:
From a blogger and site owner’s perspectives, the update that will make the most impression is the improved user experience when managing your plugins. Users can now download or activate/deactivate multiple plugins on the same page, unlike before when users are brought to a different page after selecting a plugin to download and then have to click on the Plugin link again to repeat the process.
However, the real beauty lies in the programmer and developer’s side, in which the JSON REST API is now part of WordPress’s core.

When you start looking for books about WordPress there a quite a few of them. Most of them however cover the subject from a fairly beginners point of view only, not Professional WordPress though. I received this book by Hal Stern, David Damstra en Brad Williams a few weeks back and have been reading it on and off… and I’m impressed.
Professional WordPress isn’t particularly geared towards the general WordPress novice like but more-so to the WordPress developer novice, just like Digging Into WordPress. The book is setup to describe basic operation of function and then offering guidance and example demonstrating how to take it apart and reassemble that function to fit your need.
Even though this may sound like Professional WordPress is only for developers, I do believe anyone wanting to take their WordPress installation(s) to a higher level will get a lot out of this book.
The Topics Covered
Where to begin. The Professional WordPress book offers a wide range of topics navigating you through 15 different chapters. Not all will be interesting to all, but anyone looking to broaden their WordPress knowledge will find something interesting in pretty much any chapter.
