This is what I’ve been up to…turning Codex into something you can download.

The page here with details is:

The downloadable Codex docs are linked from my guides:


  1. Hey bud, just wanted to say, sweet beans. Matt mentioned you were doing this, I sent an email but I’ve not been having much luck with replies recently, something weird is going on with gmail again, it’s done it before. Erm yeah I wanted to offer any help you needed in the design of the pdfs, that sort of thing. Not sure if you got someone sorting that out for you.

    What about hosting? Hasn’t that always been an issue?

  2. Hi Khaled :) I’m sure everything about this can be improved – design / typeface / images, the lot. And I’d like to think that inside of 8-12 months we will indeed have a whole new look. But like it says, I cannot abide all the endless looping convo’s that go on before anything actually gets done. So I did it.
    And hosting ? I should be okay there unless every single WP user grabs files.

  3. […] Mark has done it again. Now he has gone all out and converted parts of the WP Codex to PDF form. He made the announcement here on his blog and has further information available on this page. The actual PDFs are located in his WordPress Guides section of his site. […]

  4. I gotta hand it to you, Mark. You have done it again! I admire your sticktuitiveness…it’s something I lacked, and I managed to burn all of my bridges in the process.

  5. Craig – I think you may have singed a couple, scorched the odd one but fully burned ? Nah :)

    And ‘again’ ? Last as well. What is left to do ?

  6. […] I know I am a bit late with this post as it was made a few days back by Mark. Heres the link Mark does WP-Codex in PDF. So why have I posted about it now ? well basically It’s the first time this week I have had chance to sit and read the above WP-codex in PDF format. I have to say well done to Mark. I have never been a fan of the WP-codex mainly due to it’s layout and difficulty in finding what your looking for straight away. I have difficulty in reading small text and there are to many distractions in the layout which hinders my concentration. More often than not I gave up which lead to frustration. […]
