Wordpress theme keep changing ?

If your Wordpress theme keeps changing automatically here is a simple work around. Some people report "new themes" showing up or it changing back to the default Wordpress theme.

The solution I used goes like this :
  1. Copy the folder of your current theme
  2. Rename the old "default" folder to something else
  3. Rename the copy of your current theme "default"
Now every time Wordpress changes themes on you it should still load your current theme.

A downfall to this is when you update your template or images you have to do it for both copies of the theme.

If possible you might be able to make a symbolic link (a shortcut) if it's a Linux operating system using the a command like :

ln -s .../themes/theme_name .../themes/default

Please let me know if you have any errors.

How To Make Your Own Alternative Ad for AdSense

So recently I got tired of getting Google Public Service announcements and decided to look into this alternative ad thing. I decided that using a color that makes it a blank space isn't for me; it's not doing anything good for my pocket book - plus visitors will get different views of the site depending on when they visit.

So I set out to make my own alternative ad, this is actually VERY easy.

You only need 3 things :

1. An image the size of the ad block.
2. A simple html file which makes the image a link.
3. Insert this code into the third line of your adsense code (under your pub-0129103 number) :
google_alternate_ad_url = "http://yoursite.com/adurl.html";

Wha-la, you now have your own alternative ad showing whatever you want.
