When I started, the first thing I sought to learn was the WordPress lingo..
for example the loop, permalinks, and template tags. Using those types of
terms will better your understanding of WordPress customization so that
when you have a question, you can be very specific... and chances are your
question has already been answered elsewhere.

There's a good book called "Digging into WordPress" that breaks down the
basics, and you can decide where to go from there.


It really clarified a lot of questions I had at first.
