A User's Guide to Plone...

This book helps new and experienced Plone users to become more productive.

It is written especially for those who use Plone on a daily basis to write and approve content.

A User's Guide to Plone takes an in-depth look at the basic steps for creating and publishing content; it also provides reference material about content types, workflows, user security and strategies for organizing a site. The latest edition, for Plone 4, is 246 pages, has undergone a major rewrite by Robert Nagle, and includes new material on topics such as: using the TinyMCE editor, using Plone for wikis and making content easy to find.
