Here’s a tip before I go on. Never install Word 200 along side Word 2003: they don’t get on at all.
This is a local popup, .. it’s been placed here to advertise the fact that you can have your own **free** local WordPress environment, and at the click of a button.
I’m putting my own reputation on the line to push this local program, and what I can say on the subject: is quite frankly it’s brilliant. The program itself will provide you with a very simple WP environment to go local: simple but powerful.
Setting it up and running it is a breeze, but like everything else software wise out there, you do need to read the docs: just a little bit to get it running.
Did I mention that it’s free!
Download and install it here.
Try it, you won’t be disappointed.
