Help me!

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, as I would need your support. I state to be a beginner and I met the application the day before yesterday for the first time.
I'm creating a manga reading site using wiremanga and I need to know how I can incorporate altervista advertising. (this is my site if you could serve http://dgtread.altervista.org/)
I have also modified some elements of both the .css and php files but despite saving they are not updated.

Hi Antonio, and welcome to the forum.

With regard to incorporating altervista advertising, I did not see any reference (I don't speak Italian) regarding any form of advertising options for their hosted members. I did notice they have a support forum link at the bottom of the page. I would ask your advertising question there. Once you have the necessary information you can ask here how best to include that information.

Regarding your css and php file changes, you usually need to clear any cached data in your browser before you see any changes.

Hi Rick, I thank you for the timely reply!
In fact, as far as cached, I had thought about it. I'll try.

As for the advertising of altervista, in fact I have not explained well... In the management panel, they offer the ability to insert banners and start making money by giving a link like: see attachment

what I asked is where should I put them :S

Hi @Antonio Iorio,

Regarding where to place your ads, is dependant on the ad itself. For example, a creative with wide dimensions doesn't fit in a sidebar. When I wrote the ad manager plugin fo wp many years ago, I referenced the IAB Standards for ad sizes. In your screenshot you will notice a Leaderboard 728x90 type ad. This ad is designed to display in one of three locations (I used the term zone in my plugin). This banner should be placed in the header and or footer of your page, or even between two separate sections of body content.

The <script> section of your screenshot is apparently how altervista wants you to include the ads. You would simply edit your PW templates and include that script at the location you want the ad to appear. You repeat that process for all the ads you want to present. One note of caution. While ads can be a good means to generate a small income, you should use them sparingly. No user wants to weed through a bunch of ads in order to continue reading your content. So I would keep with the old axiom, less is more. :)

I hope this helps. Let us know if you have any further questions.

Just an old saying, like keep it simple.

      Hi! In busy learning to know PW better I'm looking at existing code.
      I have Bitpoets Editorial Responsive Blog as example. While looking through the code I've just found this line in the blog-head.php 
      <link rel="stylesheet" href="<?= $config->urls->templates ?>assets/css/main.css?ts=<?= time() ?>" /> I hope it's not a stupid question but I've never seen this before...
      main.css?ts=<?= time() ?> I notice the main template is empty but of course renders on the front end.
      Using a timestamp really has me totally confused. Can someone explain it to me please. 
      Thank you!

      I can't tell what's wrong; my local development version appears just fine, but I copy over the site files and db online and the homepage content is not being contained. This is what it should look like (same site in the same browser, running on my localhost): http://imgur.com/UFZFzrd
      What could be the problem here? Sorry to bring up something so irrelevant to PW here, I just know that you all are a valiant and helpful group, and no one on StackExchange seems to even know what I'm talking about.
      Thanks a lot.

      so i just downloaded this template  and i uploaded it to my server made some .php changes so it would work and stuff but all the css-transitions or css-animations don't work. they just stop
      if you checked out the template all those buttons are smooth and really nice, bit when you check out my site all those animations are gone, why is that? is there some option i have to toggle? or is it normal? how do i fix it ?
