Decided today to rethink my writing strategy (more of that later). I have now set up my own article site. I did consider doing a few niche ones but my interests tend to be pretty eclectic so I'm keeping them on one site.
I've succesfully installed the twenty ten theme but there are two things I'm struggling with.
Currently, the main menu only has 'home' and I can't see where to add to that (and subcats too)
Secondly and importantly .... how do I add adsense to it .. once again .. nothing obvious that I can see.
Any pointers appreciated
go to 'pages' and add a page - it will automatically add itself to the menu bar.
I am also interested in how to add adsense when someone else chips in.
thanks ... have done that ok .. any idea how to do submenus of those pages ?
From your dashboard, go to Appearance > Themes > Menus
You should be able to drag and drop your tabs where you want them.
Create a new page, save it and then go to Quick Edit for that page. The Parent drop-down menu will let you make one of the other pages its parent, rather than the home page.
Yes - you will have to have another page for it to be the parent or child of - of course. I would second the Empress' suggestion to use Google, it is easier to find things in the Wordpress codex through Google than through the codex own search tool !
It wasn't me who suggested Google, it was Spacey but I agree - even though Google SERPs ain't as good as they used to be, you can still find some great Wordpress resources using Google!
regarding your adsense setup, make sure to check this link: http://www.google.com/adsense/support/b … swer=17954
I can help you with the Adsense part straight away - you need to download a plugin.
I use the Adsense Optimizer plugin which lets you specify where on a page the ad(s) go, how big they are and how much text has to be in place before the ads will appear (useful). You need to use the custom rather than the beginner's setting for this, but it's not hard.
As a general bit of advice - if I were doing it all again - I would start with the 'how to do it all' in the pull down help pages (tab on top right) and read all of it as I did it.
Just a general bit of advice - I taught myself Wordpress from scratch about 3 months ago using only the power of google. Everytime I needed to know anything I just Googled it - there was always an answer eventually because so many people use Wordpress.
Yes, fortunately there are a lot of helpful blogs dedicated to explaining the ways you can tweak and customize your Wordpress. I've made use of some of them quite a few times just for good tips.
Thanks all .. have figured out the menu now and a couple of other bits. Have decided to hold off adsense for a short while as I'm going to transfer some of my hubs to it so need them to de-index really before I add adsense as I suspect that is against their T&Cs
Missed this posting earlier. try this link http://www.blog.web6.org/how-to-add-ads … s-sidebar/ Mark Knowles very kindly sent it to me earlier. Same wordpress theme 2010.
Sore and stiff and I'm stir crazy - need to get out a bit more, but can't yet.
Thanks for asking. It is improved on the other day, but not back to normal yet.
I am sure it will get steadily better as long as you don't do anything to jar it up again - so keep your mind off that cute window cleaner guy !!!!!!!!!
Actually the cute male nurse I saw in the hospital the other day did it for me!
OK obviously their rules are different to ours, cute female nurses with long hair and jewellery who sashayed as they walked, but the young male nurses - wow! - who cares if they had long hair!! Gorgeous!
Anyway, I just sat in my wheelchair and gawped...as you do at my age!
Yep - you go in to hospital with a simple bad back and come out with blood pressure issues
I never understood the blindness of sending the cutest nurse to take my blood pressure and then telling me it was a bit high !
On a similar theme, I've never understood why Spanish hospitals don't check blood pressure routinely.
So, on my visit the other day they asked if I was allergic to any drugs.
Have you any medical history we should know about?
yes I have a broken back which you put back together again and I have hypertension.
They still didn't check it!
Maybe you looked too healthy, apart from being bent as a hairpin !
My daughter reports from her short stay in UK hospital an unbelievably long series of varous different doctor visits, a bitch queen nurse making everyones life difficult and a total failure to actually do anything - especially NOT getting an ultrsound of some internal problem that might have indicated what 'bit' was swollen and painful.
I compare this to my doc here in China who chats it all through and if I ask for anything from a simple ultrasound to a full body scan I get it, on the spot. The hospital is crowded, none of the stainless steel chromium gitz that fails to prevent super-bugs, friendly docs and nurses and instant service.
I think Spain have been taking lessons form the UK. Honestly it's queue for everything now. When I was a young nurse, presenting with a lump got you an immediate hospital referral. Quick biopsy and they knew what they were dealing with. Now there is a waiting list to go on the waiting list for a biopsy. And yes people are dying.
Heard of a young lad who had a lump on his testicle. Being a typical shy young lad he was late visiting his GP, but then he waited 6 months for a biopsy which proved positive but they couldn't treat him because it was advanced cancer. Died aged barely 17!
Some things need immediate investigation and that was one of them.
Yeah sorry for the hi-jack.
And I hope nobody minds us chat-jacking this thread while we wait for Ritso to come back with his next question ?

I recently created a Tumblr blog for articles that have been idled here. I move those hubs offsite. I was using WordPress.The reason I have switched to Tumblr is the ability to incorporate Google Ads via AdSense. I am able to have one 250x250 ad (sizes can vary, your choice, as well as...

I am just learning all about everything on the internet, and I signed up for a Google AdSense account so that I could get paid for my articles. Well, I don't know what the heck I did, but they deleted my account and have now denied me access to another one? I have tried and tried to get...

I'm sure I'm not alone in this. When I open a page I do not want it to start talking to me or playing music unless I press play. I really hate those adverts that are like a TV advert and appear on the page, and start playing without being clicked. Especially if I have multiple tabs / windows open...
