    Seriously, I’ve got nothing against people who choose other blogging platforms so they can run adsense, I just wish they wouldn’t vomit hostility all over the forum. I mean, we don’t really care, nor is it our decision, so why vent at us? All I ask is that they not be asses to the other forum goers or we will, yes, make them look as absolutely rediculous and apalling as they have made themselves look.

    Of course, the most irritating thing is that when the adsense ‘upgrade’ does get implemented these people are going to think Automattic has responded to their ranting and come running back here wanting to know what keywords they should be using in their posts to maximise their earnings :(

    I have already resolved to ignore all those threads. I have enough people ranting at me about keywords…people with technorati ranks down in the millions. Let them ask Adsense.

    @rain
    I heartily agree. I’ve taken 1 1/2 years of abuse on the forum from infantile adsenseless people and now I shoot from the lip when I encounter them.

    @wank
    Agreed.

    Kigster, you appear to be confused a bit. The wordpress platform allows adsense. It’s just that currently at wordpress.com, it is not allowed. Why not stay with wordpress, find yourself a host, and add in all the adsense that you want? With your mentioning that you would be willing to pay a bit for the option, I’m sure you would be willing to pay for your own hosting.

    You may want to search the forums for many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many other threads on this topic and the reasons why adsense is currently not allowed. These include a number of security concerns when dealing with javascripts. You’ll also see in the other threads that staff is planning on adding it in and how staff is working with the google folks to limit security concerns.

    You may think its ‘absolutely rediculous and apalling’ but in reality you’re just not away of the reasons behind it and the options available to you.

    Changes are though that we’ll never see you here in the forums again so it’s probably moot. Seems like most people who come in here and rant rarely followup.

    edit: You may also want to send in a feedback voicing your support for adsense. That way staff sees your opinion on the matter.

    I have a question and it’s somewhat technical (sorry in advance for the length).

    I recently just signed up with Dreamhost and Installed WordPress on there. I’ve already taken the steps in terms of now having an “admin” account and importing all my files from my “old” wordpress blog. Reason I did all this was to post ads. I have pretty high traffic and it couldn’t hurt to earn a couple bucks.

    In any event the only real step I have left is the darned theme! I can’t seem to find it. I have “Contempt” on my old blog and I just can’t seem to set it up. Also, I can’t seem to have a custom image header in the new wordpress (wordpress.org). I’m not very computer savvy and it’s a pain. It’s like I’m almost there but not quite.

    The blog I have now is http://hottestgirlsonmyspace.wordpress.com

    The new blog, which I want EXACTLY the same as it is now is http://hottestgirlsofmyspace.net

    It’s not a porn blog or anything but I’m having a lot of trouble.

    Please help!

    drmiketemp – thanks for the tip, I will send my comments and feedback to Automattic support.

    And I agree that my wording may have been strong, but damn did I not expect these really “nice” and super friendly people like raincoaster, timethief (ogh, that’s clever!) and wank to come up with such heartfelt and intelligent responses. Wow, that’s a bunch of really mature people on this forum. Sure makes my momma proud I can be part of it.

    If you are patient and willing to wait for the change to take place then the references I provided should reassure you that an adsense widget is “in the works”

    what, it’s still here? I thought it was leaving for ever and ever and ever.

    kigster, I responded using only the words YOU used. You put them in the forum; that’s us. You directed those words at us. If you didn’t want to do that, you should apologize to use for using them, and you should get over it when they are directed back at you.

    YO! How about we look back at the length of this thread and call a truce. No more personal stuff would be good. The issue is actually “resolved”, right?

    (1) The choices are to leave immediately and go to where adsense is available.
    (2) Or to stay and wait for the introduction of the adsense widget upgrade option here at wordpress.com.
