The eye of the hurricane

Lazy Day

Feeling like I’m in the eye of the hurricane

Owing a debt of gratitude

As uncertainties swirl around in a fiery blur

How to add Google Ads in WordPress Mobile Theme

Recently I activated the WordPress mobile-theme (under Jetpack) for my food and travel website. After some research online, I managed to find out how to add Google Ads in the mobile-friendly website. This article will show you how I did it.

Step 1
Go to your web hosting control panel. For me it’s cPanel.

Step 2
Open the “File Manager” for your domain.

Step 3
Here’s where you have to navigate through lots of folders.
wp-content –> plugins –> jetpack –> modules –> minileven –> theme –> pub –> minileven

Step 4
Inside the “minileven” folder, select the php file which you want to insert the ads. For me, I inserted one 320 x 50 ad in the header.php file and two 250 x 250 ads in the comments.php file.

For the header.php file, I inserted my ad just above the below lines
<head>
<meta charset=”<?php bloginfo( ‘charset’ ); ?>” />

For the comments.php file, I inserted my ads just above the below lines
<div id=”comments”>
<?php if ( post_password_required() ) : ?>

As usual, feel free to ask any questions in the comments section below. Hope you found this article useful!

The Costs of Owning a Mutual Fund

Was reading about the costs of owning a mutual fund and this cracked me up :)

“The investment advisory fee or management fee is the money necessary to pay the manager(s) of the mutual fund. On average, this fee is about 0.50% to 1.0% annually of the fund’s assets, and is necessary to make sure that the manager of the fund can be very well-dressed at all times and is able to go on good vacations.”

How to Change WordPress Default Language to Chinese

If you are starting a Chinese website, it is better to change the default language to Chinese so that your website will not show any English words (unless you want to of course).

To do this,

1. Go to your web hosting control panel. For me it’s cPanel.

2. Click on “File Manager” to open your website’s Files Directory.

3. In your website’s main folder, you will find a file called “wp-config.php”. Right-click on it and click “edit”.

4. Change
define(‘WPLANG’, ”);

to

define(‘WPLANG’, ‘zh_CN’);

5. Click on Save and you are done!

Unable to type anything in WordPress Visual Editor (ZhuJi91 Hosting)

The Problem:
When you click on “Add New” under “Posts” or “Pages” in your WordPress CMS, you are unable to type anything in the visual editor. This happened to me when I was using the host ZhuJi91 for my Chinese website.

The Solution:
1. Go to your web hosting control panel. For me it’s cPanel.

2. Click on “File Manager” to open your website’s Files Directory.

3. In your website’s main folder, you will find a file called “wp-config.php”. Right-click on it and click “edit”.

4. Paste this code after the “define WPLANG” line.
define(‘CONCATENATE_SCRIPTS’, false );

5. Click on save. You should be able to use your Visual Editor now!

Hope that helps. Feel free to leave any questions in the comments section below!
