This has been making me crazy for about a month now and FINALLY got it solved. I tired everything.. simple reboot, defrag, disk clean. etc.
When in a program or in browser and trying to save a file or open a file the dialogue box opens and my files are in reverse alphabetically order. Not sure if I have mentioned buy I am dyslexic and this is enough to paralyse me and put me over the edge! I really thought I might have to reformat. it was THAT bad.
Was not a simple open explorer and change to “name” etc.
The problem could be solved temporarily by doing this- when in dialogue box, right clicking within the screen, checking ‘arrange icons by..” and picking name. This Worked once and had to do every time. ARGH.
How did I solve.
Do the above. Some how get into a dialogue box by opening a program ( i.e WORD, AI, etc) and open a file and when in dialogue box right click so that option to pick ” arrange icons by name ” appears. Then, hold down “ctrl” key. click then “name” option then close the dialogue window by clicking “X” box. will look like it has frozen. It has not. Let go of key and try closing again.
This should do it.
Hope this helps!
I have been having fun installing galleries on some WordPress blogs this past week. I will admit NextGen Gallery is probably one of the more challenging plugins to install and work with- but very worthwhile. ( Not as bad as the Kimili Flash plugin tho!)
This was not a 30 second download the plugin and upload tho content folder operation. It took me easliy a half hor to get it up and workign properly and even then it is work to get each photo up.
Form and SEO point of veiw you need to make some adjustments to images once they are up.
For example in your NextGen galleries, change the alt text of the image. By default the alt text is name of the file so you alt text will be something like photo1.jpg. Change this to describe your photo is simple English.
A great tip is to make your images linkable.
How to Create Hyper Links For Images in Nex Gen Gallery Plugin for WordPress
This is quite easy although bit time consuming to do- but again very worth it.
When in Gallery there is empty field for description- you can add html here including a link. I will use this to link to a post that is based on the original image.
Argh. Last few days my AdSense revenue not performing as well as I expected. I checked some of my more popular pages which are my higher money making pages and see that there is a public service ad running in one spot and blank white space in the others on several pages- all related in content. It is very strange.
I went through checklist :
Is there viewable text? Yes.
Is is offensive/adult content that could be banned? No.
Are they ads showing up on other computers or browsers? No.
Are ads showing up on other pages? Yes.
Sigh. I put in support email/ticket to Adsense but not holding my breath, I have received 2 auto-responder emails from them.
I am not happy. This is my BOOM time of year. My Amazon links are kicking butt and I should be having a banner Adsense month. My Adsense revenue down by about 15 %.
Odd that the ads are not showing on my top pages.
Is always something this time last year was when Google changed their clickable area and took my months to tweak and get blogs back on track.
This is why you must NOT rely on one revenue stream for your income.
Also this time of year is when Google stripped people of their page rank and the PayPerPost money tree disappeared.
Will let you know when and if I get an answer. If any thoughts on why this is happening. please feel free to comment.
