wordpress adsense without plugin

You still did not find a good Adsense plugin for Wordpress? Read this article and do it yourself! Adapt your theme for Adsense injected gently in your posts, widget and in your post index. The result can you see on this site. I don’t use any Adsense plugin anymore.

The advantage of this approach is:

  1. Full control over the place and position of the ads.
  2. Automatic insertion of the ad in your content is done gently, without putting it between a bullet list, heading etc. If you still don’t like the way it is done automatically, you can override it with the shortcode [[adsense]]. Auto insertion is than disabled!
  3. In this way it is also possible to put more ads in a long post, by using the [[adsense]] shortcode
  4. If the ad can not be posted in a gentle way, it is inserted at the end of the post.
  5. The adsense script is placed at one place and not everywhere in your theme.

I would like to test if it works to serve more websites from one Wordpress installation. By default Wordpress supports subdomains (like Wordpress.com) but I would like to run the installation with second-level domains (SLD). This is described in this article. Maybe in the future Wordpress will support SLD, in that case I will report that in this article.

Why this article?
Yes, I know there are a lot of other howto’s about to install Wordpress Multisite. I did not find a correct one and it confused me. To install Wordpress Multisite for SLD is not complex, it is robust, but there are some tricky things that you need to know. That is why I wrote this article. Ok, let’s start!

When developing websites on a  local WAMP installation, I often need control over the DNS. It is no problem to add a hostname to the Windows hosts file, but a wildcard in the domain does not work. For example you need a wildcard domain when installing WordPress Multisite locally with subdomains. This article has the solution to add wildcards to your local WAMP installation, without installing Bind or other heavy DNS solutions. Configuring WAMP for wildcard domains If you not WAMP installed already, you can find here: www.wampserver.com/en/ After the download you can install it with the default parameters. After installation […]

One of my WordPress plugins had often bad functioning updates (Organize Series). With this updates I had to recover the corrupted database by hand. A lot of work. It is possible to ignore the updates, but you make easily the mistake to update it with the others. To protect you to this, it is possible to disable the update with a couple of simple rows of code. You have to be careful, sometime a plugin needs to be updated for the safety aspect. In that case you can do the update by hand or just remove these rows of code […]

Currently I have to use a pretty slow mobile internet connection. And sometimes a program is using a lot of my bandwidth. This means that I am unable to open websites or I have to wait very long. This is annoying. So I was searching for a method to monitor the network traffic per program. Netstat and CurrPorts It is possible to use the netstat command on the command line. This lists the open TCP /UDP connections including info.  A more detailed program, which is more luxury than netstat is CurrPorts. But like netstat it does not show the network traffic, only […]

Zend Framework logo

To install Zend Framework is not as straight forward like other PHP Frameworks. Also to install it with NetBeans it was not described very well on blogs.sun.com/netbeansphp site. Let’s start! My assumption is that NetBeans is installed already on Ubuntu. I used NetBeans 6.9.1 and Ubuntu 10.10. In NetBeans are also the PHP plugins installed. Installing the Zend Framework First we are going to install Zend: # sudo apt-get install zend-framework-bin This will also install the package: “libzend-framework-php”. It will not install the packages: “zend-framework” and “libzend-framework-zendx-php”. These packages are still available for installation. The Zend library is installed in the […]

First Before we are going into depth, first check if the (external) hard disk is able to go in spindown. Disable all services which has disk access periodically, for example: # /etc/init.d/asterisk stop # /etc/init.d/rsyslog stop # /etc/init.d/apache2 stop # /etc/init.d/mysql stop # /etc/init.d/samba stop # /etc/init.d/cron stop # /etc/init.d/ntp stop # /etc/init.d/rsync stop And all other daemons which are suspicious… –MARK– in /var/log/messages In /var/log/messages every 30 minutes a —- MARK —- row will be written. This can be switched off by configuring the rsyslogd. Open the rsyslog.conf file and comment out the “$ModLoad imark” by putting a ‘#‘ […]

First This article is about installing Debian on a flash disk, like SD card, flash disk, Solid State Disk etc. The goal is to have the data on a hard disk. This will increase the lifetime of the flash disk. Assumption of this article is that Debian is already installed on a flash disk in the root “/”-directory. In the article Installing Debian on the Sheevaplug there is also a separate “/boot” ext2 partition, because U-Boot is unable to read from ext3 partitions. This article is written while installing Debian Squeeze on the SheevaPlug, but this article can also be […]

After installing Debian on SD card, it was booting successfully with the ‘run bootcmd‘. But when I switched off the power and plugged in again, I was getting the following error messages: Error! cmd : 8, err : 0201 Error! cmd : 1, err : 0201 Error! cmd : 1, err : 0201 Error! cmd : 1, err : 0201 Error! cmd : 1, err : 0201 Error! cmd : 1, err : 0201 Error! cmd : 1, err : 0201 Error! cmd : 1, err : 0201 Error! cmd : 1, err : 0201 Error! cmd : 1, err […]
