Some examples from the book

There are many settings you can select and change to tailor WordPress for your website. It is important to do this early on. ... The Settings section of the Dashboard is organized into different areas. Here are the settings you will want to review and potentially change."

"WordPress includes a media library for you to manage and organize your images, audio and videos that you host from your website. Clicking on the Media link in the Dashboard takes you to the media library. There are two views—the table view and the gallery view. The table view shows you a thumbnail image of the media object along with the title, file name, author who uploaded it, where it was uploaded (what page or post), any comments about the media item and the date it was uploaded."

"There is one drawback to WordPress that stems from it being open source: hackers have access to the same source code and can look for ways to hack WordPress websites. Because WordPress is so popular, WordPress sites have become a common target. ... The good news is that there are number of things you can do to greatly minimize your website from getting hacked."
