Hey Edward,

It is NOT the fault of WA. It is whether you have your SSL certificate turned on and checked to make sure it is working properly.

Your website is your responsibility, not WA's

You can use: https://www.whynopadlock.com/ to find out why your site is not secured properly, and if you need help fixing it, SIteSupport will be more than willing to assist you.

Hope you find this helpful.

Hi Trish
That didn't occur to me because I thought all sites hosted at siterubix are set up with SSL.

When you say WordPress send you something, Edward, what do you mean? do you have an example that you can copy and paste as an attachment without giving away anything confidential of yours?

I want to put a dropdown for last 10 posts and one for the last 5 comments on the Top Bar using Block Editor. Can someone tell me how to do it? Using Generate Press Free vers

Hey Edward,

You may find it a lot less messy if you use your Categories on your menu bar. Just a thought...

Hope you find this helpful.

Thank you for your repose but i got one from Richard that I used.

I hope you were able to sort this out, Ed.
Richard gives great directions.

Lily

Yes he did. I thought it would be different because of the Block editor. When I got back into it made Sense. Thank you for your response Lily.

Hi Edward
You need to learn about Menus ...
Under Appearance in WP you'll find a place to create menus.
There is recent training here that might help: If you have any questions as you go... just ask.
:-)
Richard

Thank you so much Richard, when I saw you on the helper screen I thought you might get back to me. I made TOC before but have yet to make a block editor drop down menu and thought it would be different particularly when I questioned WP about the subject and they had all kinds of downloads and adding codes which I didn't even want to try. Thanks again and I will give it a try.

I always look for the simplest answer, Edward although sometimes the simplest isn't really simple!
Anyway, ask if you get stuck.
:-)

If I had 3 Posts created before hooking up Analytics, would that be reason for the tracking code not be in the Posts?

I hope you have it sorted out now, Edward!

Jeff

I am finally on the right path thanks to so many members of the membership and a particular shoutout goes to Phil feigner who figured out where I had gone wrong. This Outstanding community is Awesome!

I am glad to hear that, Edward! The WA community is totally awesome!

Jeff

the code you add from google analytics is added to hte head section of your site...
and should be on all pages past and present if htey use the head section...
when you view the source code of the page ( ctrl+u) then the analytics code will be present between hte < head> and < /head > section....
so do a search ( ctrl+f) for analytics or if you know the number of your analytics then search for that...
the old universal analytics will start UA-xxxxx and the newer ga4 will be a G-xxxx number....
it won't prevent you ranking or vifsitors coming to your site, but it does stop you from seeing the activity on your site...
i hope you manage to find it

I saw it when installing the analytics following jay's instructions, but when I look at the source code of the 3 posts that are on my website it is not there. In fact I have created universal & AG4 as instructed by Jay's videos. What am I missing?

that i don't know ...
what is the url of your site

affordablesmallbusinessstartup-isitforyou.com

Sorry it is getting to you so late but I will be going to bed now.

i have just run it through gachecker and all you pages say they have hte global site tag ...so you have analytics on every page...or in your head section...
so you are covered for google analytics on every page Ed...

don't forget to change the uncategorized category to something sensible.....

Hi Ed when you first put your tracking code in WP. Back office. You may have to wait a few days for google to accept it.

The tracking code is made when you go through the creation of Google Analytics. When I look at the source in those 3 posts it is Not there. Since I had all that trouble with Analytics it was corrected After I had made the 3 Posts. So I am asking is it a timing problem?

Hey Edward,

It does appear that you do need to wait, yes. See screen print below...

What do you mean Edward?

The function of Google analytics is to track your visitors coming to your website

Can you please explain a bit more?

I have to sit it out because Triblu sent me a link that it may take 24 hours or more to find out if Google accepts the tracking code. Thank you in the mean time.

Edward

Ok
Let me know how you get on

Hi

Sometimes we use a front static page, however we make it interesting, and leave a contact on the page, while we work in the background.

You can use Grammarly dot com premium of which helps with plagiarism, it is a very effective tool.

I am sure the TOC we discussed in a previous question.

I'd follow up with the lessons to set up site correctly.

I usually change from classic to block editor. I wish I could help you further.
