By this point in the book, you should know more than enough about blogging to decide which solution to investigate. Obviously, if you bought this book, you’ve decided that you’re ready to enter what some see as a world of pain and get your hands dirty with some code.
The next step is deciding which of the current blog engines you’re going to fire up. Over the course of this book, you’ll learn about Movable Type, Expression Engine, WordPress, and Textpattern. In the final chapter, Richard Rutter will take the more adventurous of you through coding your own blogging system.
Through the use of tags, you know how to get your blog noticed, and by embedding your Flickr images in your blog, you’ll have even more people flocking to your new blog.
Before you even touch any code, though, it makes sense to get yourself a testing server that we’ll use to run all the examples in this book. So, without further ado, it’s over to David Powers, who will guide you through how to set your machine up for that very job.
