Printed .htaccess books

After launching my new book .htaccess made easy back in September, I wanted to allow time to fix any errors or typos before sending the book to the printers. After a couple of months, I had updated the book three times with better code, new techniques, and design improvements. After a few final steps to optimize for print format, the books were ordered, printed and delivered fresh on Christmas Eve :) So to celebrate the event, all printed .htaccess books are on sale for $10 off, and all PDFs are on sale for $5 off.

About the printed books

The printed books contain the same content as the PDF, over 200 pages of .htaccess how-to’s, techniques, tricks & tips. The books are digitally printed in full-color on glossy paper with a coated card-stock cover and spiral binding. It’s a self-published thing of beauty, as you can see for yourself:

.htaccess made easy – printed books!

In addition to the PDF Demo, also check out Aldo Latino’s recent review of .htaccess made easy, which is in Spanish Italian but includes some nice screenshots from the book :) Update: Here is an English-translated version of the review (via Google Translate).

    I bought the pdf version less than a week ago. Had I known you would have a print versions I would have waited. Do you have an upgrade path for this?

  4. Hello,
    Do you ship to India

  5. I couldn’t find a way to contact via the website, so I’ll use a comment. Just wanted to let you know this site is somewhat unusable when zoomed in the browser. Example page here. When zoomed up to 125%, post text is all there, but when zoomed to 150% or higher the right side gets cut off so you can’t make any sense of the post.

  6. Hey cool book i come later back and see more!!!

    Thanks!

  7. This is probably the subject web coders want to avoid, but it’s not really possible. So, it’s good to see a book about .htaccess. Definitively buying.

    Jeff, do you have an preferred language set in Notepad++ when it comes to .htaccess and syntax highlighting?

    • Jeff Starr

      Hi Joe, thanks for the feedback. For syntax highlighting, I use “Apache” when available, otherwise plain-text for .htaccess. Not sure if Notepad++ has that or not..?

Simply Static is my go-to plugin for generating static HTML versions of WordPress sites. Works flawlessly.
Note to self: never, ever, ever buy any CD or DVD from eBay. Every single time the discs are scratched, damaged, missing, fake, or worse. Never again you clowns.
