Solved: Wordpress Errors When Uploading Media Images and Photos: Folder Creation and Permissions

If you are receiving error messages in your Wordpress admin dashboard every time you try to upload a media file (a photo or image), then go to "Settings" and then "Media" and add a check mark to the box that says "Organize my uploads into month- and year-based folders."

Solution: Spybot - Search & Destroy Crashes Your Windows 7 Operating System and Shuts Down Computer

Does Spybot-S&D (Spybot-Search & Destroy) crash your Windows operating system and your computer? Do you find that part-way through a Spybot spyware scan your computer mysteriously switches off? Then check to make sure that you do not have any additional security software running in real-time in the background. And if you do have other security scanners running, such as anti-virus software, shut them down before you make a scan with Spybot S&D.

For example, if you have Threatfire (from PC Tools) running in the background, then "suspend" its operation. Or if you have Microsoft Security Essentials running in real-time, then go to the Microsoft Security Essentials settings and turn off Real-time Protection.

If you are running Avast, AVG, Norton, PC Tools, Trend Micro, or any other antivirus software in real-time, in the background, so that the software is constantly checking your computer for threats, then shut those real-time security processes down before you start a Spybot scan.

Solution: "A problem with the cooling system has been detected." Toshiba Overheating Warning? Cooling Fan Off? Stop Sleep.

If your Toshiba laptop computer is giving you the warning "A problem with the cooling system has been detected. Please turn off the computer immediately, and return it for service," try to solve the problem by following these steps (it worked for my Toshiba Satellite A505):

1) Go to your Windows 7 Control Panel and click on "Power Options." Choose "High Performance" and then click "Change Plan Settings."

2) Under both the "On battery" and "Plugged in" columns, choose "Never" as the "Put the computer to sleep" setting. Then click "Save changes."

3) Check for Windows 7 and Toshiba updates.

Now if the solution I've outlined above does not seem to always work, then continue to use those settings PLUS NEVER put your laptop into the Sleep Mode or the Hibernation Mode. It seems that sometimes Windows 7 forgets to start the cooling fan when it brings the computer out of Sleep.

Check Your Affiliate Links

You should make sure that your affiliate links are working. Check them out every two months or so. Recently I found that my old Chitika affiliate referral link takes my readers to a page that no longer exists on the Chitika website. My new referral link is

SOLVED: Hacked? Is Your Site Redirecting to

If your website is mysteriously redirecting to

and you have the button or tracking code on your site, then delete the code. The code and button are invisible at the present time, so do a search of your own source code.

At the present time the code will redirect your traffic to someone else's advertising. This situation may change in the future, and I noticed that the site itself sometimes redirects to the URL listed above, but for now just delete the code and then check back with for future developments and explanations.

Wordpress Plugins Slow Page Load

If you have noticed that your Wordpress blog is loading slowly, and you have a lot of plugins activated, then you should deactivate the plugins you are not actually using. With fewer plugins activated, your Wordpress site will load faster. Your readers will be happy.

I imagine the same rule of thumb has proved true for other blogging and networking platforms.

And if your site keeps hanging up, find out if one of your plugins is the cause of the problem, because JavaScript advertisements linked to small advertisers and minor advertising networks (that do not have a lot of bandwidth) can also slow your site down.

How To Make Money on the Internet -- Part 1

I don't care what all those guys on the forums say, you need a Domain Name. The Domain Name is the first thing you'll need before you can start making money on the Internet as an Independent Webmaster. Otherwise all your link-building efforts will go to waste.

1) Get a domain name from a reputable service like NetFirms or 1and1.

Choose a simple .com domain name. Your customers will remember one- and two-word domain names, and if you ever decide to sell your web site or domain name, short names bring in a higher price.

Make More Money From Adsense With Alternate Ads

Google Adsense Help explains how to construct an alternative ad. And the Google Adsense "manage ads" section in your Adsense account gives you the choice to show an alternate ad when Adsense has no ads to display (and then provides a field into which to insert your alternate ad URL). But if you are not using the new ad codes that are stored in your Adsense account (the ones you can edit from within your Adsense account), then you must manually modify the Adsense code.

In other words, if you are using the old Adsense code (the codes that cannot be edited from within your Adsense account), you must insert a line telling Google the location of your alternate ad. Here is the line you must insert:

google_alternate_ad_url = "yourad.html";

Wordperfect Fails to Initialize

If you use Wordperfect and you get the message that it failed to initialize or all you get is the splash screen which then vanishes (or when you click on a Wordperfect document, you get a message that the path to your document is wrong), then check that your default printer has not changed. You might have to choose a different default printer. You probably want to choose the printer that you have used in the recent past.
