It is not Nginx's responsibility to create guides for different 
frameworks / applications its the Frameworks / applications that should 
provide the guide to run it on X server. Nginx is a Web Server that 
supports FastCGI, Reverse proxy'ing.

But to test, it took ~ 25 mins to get a full Wordpress blog up and 
running (first time ever) on my nginx installation. I just followed 
and then used this to setup search friendly URL's.
