You could try just searching Google for "wordpress adsense plugin".
You can't miss it. BTW, I know I guy who calls it "worsepress"...

Are you talking about the free blog hosting site, wordpress.com or the wordpress software to make your own blog?

I don't think they allow adsense on wordpress.com blogs yet.

Ha, the wosepress was funny, now I have a blog and it's like a web-based thing, no software installed, edit everything in web.

I installed the Wordpress software on my server. But I had no difficulties doing so. The instructions are rather simple I think. So I don't agree with the "Worsepress" idea, both Wordpress and the Adsense Plugin work fine for me;-)

Wordpress is superb - and I migrated from MT to discover that for myself.

hi there,

humblebeginnings or anyone :), would like to ask something about wordpress. I've installed wordpress in my serve too..But if I want to edit the HTML, do I must edit it online? Can I edit it in HTML software such as dreamwaver and then upload it? If can, hope you guys can give some guide for me in editing wordpress..I'm not familiar to blogging but I'm learning now.

Thanks :)

Lowkei, this is more of a Wordpress question than an Adsense question, but FWIW;

If I want to change the look and feel of my WP blog I edit the index.php, page.php, etcetera files offline and upload them with ftp. I have no idea about dreamw.

I haven't used the adsense WP plugin - I did it by editing the .php files to get the exact result I wanted, then uploaded to the server.

To be honest, I think this is more relevant to a wordpress forum. All the wp themes seem to me to be different, and I'm sure a wp forum (or the person who wrote the theme) might be the best option.

Man, sometimes I think I'm the stupidest guy in this forum, but how can you edit that .php file? Where do you get it from? I've removed the /blog part of my website b/c it was www.mydomain.com/blog and wanted people to see only www.mydomain.com, so I removed that part and now it doesn't have ANY theme whatsoever, no images, no design basically. The only thing I see when I logged in was the text of the blog, login part, I could log in, but as soon as I click on any other link, it said "The page cannot be found." Guys, please... I just want people to visit my blog every day, occasionally make a dollar or two or maybe a bit more per day, so it could cover the costs of the hosting... man...

There are two versions of wordpress - one is hosted free by wordpress, and you can't put adsense on it. If you have this option, then don't try to incorporate adsense in it - problem solved.

The other is where you download the software from wordpress, then upload and install it to your web server. You can put adsense on this option. All the files mentioned are in the root of the folder you downloaded and extracted from the wordpress website.

I would say that if you are not familiar with editing .php files, I suggest you leave well alone! You can use the adsense plugin to add adsense to your blog if you are not familiar with .php. Otherwise, as suggested eariler, you will get advice from one of the wordpress forums or the developer of the wp theme you are using.

OK. I've hosted my website on Y! Now I saw a link to "Make a blog" stuff. I clicked. It gave me an option whether to do it thru Wordpress or Movable type, I clicked on Wordpress b/c I think it gives more options. Now, I've created the account and there it was! Everything is beautiful and simple with only one little problem...no adsense. Now I don't remember installing anything on my hard drive, so would that put me into category 1? If so, whooops!

I think you still fall under the second category (meaning you can add adsense to your wordpress blog).

The only difference is that instead of downloading the wordpress program onto your computer and installing it yourself, Yahoo made the process easier by doing install from their server with just a few clicks.

So now you have wordpress installed on your site. You just need to find a "plugin" that you can install to put adsense on your wordpress blog. Just do a google/yahoo search for: wordpress adsense

You'll find a few different ways of adding adsense to your blog.

You could also check in the wordpress.org support forums for more specific instructions.

I've switched to Movable type couple days ago, works just fine so far. I had a day off, so I posted over 9 posts.

Im using wordpress through my hosting company. I placed my adsense ad on the blog
If you go to the presentation page, there you will find a tab for "theme editor". on that tab, on the right, you should see the "theme files" listed, I inserted my code into the sidebar, which is sidebar.php. I just removed the links they had pointing to the developers blogs and turned into adsense space. Hopefully that helps.
