DiW v3.0 Book News

Posted by on

We have been working diligently on updating Digging into WordPress and finding the best print-on-demand solution. Thanks to your suggestions and ideas for book printing, there were many options to check out. After sizing things up, we’re pleased to announce the following:

  • Digging into WordPress version 3.0 will be released near the end of August
  • Printed editions of DiW will be available in September

We’re still working out the specifics regarding cost, shipping, and so forth, but the book will be updated soon and printed books are back on the menu. So that’s the plan at this point – no hard promises but rather strong goals for DiW v3.0.

As always, stay tuned for more news!

  1. Awesome work! Looking forward to its release :)

  2. Already have the previous copy, but will we get the upgraded version for free? Just got it a while ago, but now with 3.0 out, a lot has changed.

    • Yep, everyone who buys either PDF or print version (at any time) gets free lifetime updates. As soon as v3.0 is released, you should receive a new download link via email.

      • Sweet. I just got the previous one a few months ago. Can’t wait for this update.

          Sweet. I’m buying a copy right now then, ha. I’m sure there’s plenty of stuff I can still learn in the current version – but I anxiously await the 3.0 update! Keep up the good work guys!

  3. SaWeet!

    Yeah 3.0 by the end of August! Just in time for the Fall Semester.

  5. I hope there will be the option to order B&W prints. It’s a lot cheaper, which counts a lot when ordering from abroad.

    • This is still a possibility. Once we get the book updated, it can be uploaded to a POD service like Blurb and printed in b&w format. Will post as soon as we can set something up.

      • The only page in the current format that might present a little challenge when printed in B&W is page 52. Other than that, I think evry page should print fine in B&W!

  6. By the way. I would love to have some good info focused on multisite.

  7. Yay! Can’t wait for the update. I hope everything works out well finding a good POD service – I have the PDF copy but will gladly order the new version in print form in a heartbeat if it looks anywhere near as good as the previous version

    • The printed book should look identical in terms of size, format, color, etc. – only the content is being updated. Additionally, we’re looking into POD for b&w copies as well. Will post as soon as we know more.

  10. I’ve been waiting for this… I promise I will buy it this time!

  11. I’d pre-order the printed version right away… Hoping for a european selling address :)

  12. Excellent. Can we have a full explanation of the new (TwentyTen) loop?

    Hi, The book explains very well on many areas on wordpress. Still, Can we expect some more detailed information on making E-Commerce Themes and websites ?
