so i wanted to ask - does anyone either know of a good tutorial/reference, OR is the reason i can't find anything for wp specifically 3.0 because not much has changed in the methodology for making wp into a cms than for say, 2.8/2.9?
The Head First book for Wordpress is really good for beginners. lynda.com is a great site, but it would at the minimum cost you $25 a month.
Wordpress' website has tutorials as well.
