WordPress Themes and Google Analytics
Just a quick heads up… I was wondering why the Google Analytics stats for a website showed web traffic diving, and then flat-lining. And then I remember I had changed the WordPress theme. And sure enough, the new theme did not have the required analytics code.
So if ever you notice your web stats dropping, check the footer.php file of your theme. It might be the case of you excitedly updating your blog’s look, that you overlook some required files.
TIP: Keep a site admin diary. Every change you make, list it in your diary so that you can review it and understand better why certain things happen in your site.
So, Lorna, that’s why your traffic dropped. Actually, it did not drop… it was the just the report. Or rather, the lack of a website traffic tracking code. Sorry about that. 🙂
Customizing the WordPress More Tag
You know those “more” tags in WordPress which allow you to post some kind of intro of your blog post in the homepage of your WordPress-powered blog? The only thing is, when your readers click on the “Continue Reading…” link at the bottom of your introductory post, they are brought to the point where your blog post continues.
In other words, they will not readily see your blog’s headers or blog post title.

WordPress Design and Child Themes
Sometimes, we tinker around with various WordPress themes, making adjustments here and there. And before we know, we have modified the original .PHP files so much, that we’re unable to get back to how they were before.
An ideal approach is to create a copy of that theme, and modify the copy instead of the original. The thing is, if you simply copy the files, when you open WordPress and choose the theme to edit you’ll feel confused.
You will see two identical themes, and you won’t know if you’re editing the original or the second copy.
And that’s where you need to read How to make a “child theme” for WordPress. A pictorial introduction for beginners (I like the simplicity of that blog’s permalinks… no obsession over SEO). 🙂
