Building Websites with ExpressionEngine 1.6 follows an exercise based approach where you build a sample site. Every chapter is described in great detail with step by step instructions and screenshots, and what’s particularly impressive here is the amount of detail the author has added. The book covers everything from installing the software, templates, posting entries, and working with modules such as Members, Calendar, Photo Gallery, Forum, Simple Commerce and the Wiki. Additionally it also includes details on how to set the site up on your local machine using XAMPP. In all chapters you’ll find lots of tips and information, and plenty of screenshots showing you what you should be looking at and what to click. The author provides all the HTML and CSS code needed for the sample Toast site, and also gives you lots of extended information about the code so you can understand what’s going on. Even better, you’ll find many EE related hints and tips where appropriate – nice touch!
