Installation

LinkWorth can easily be integrated into your WordPress blog by following a few simple steps.

  1. Connect to your server via a file transfer method like FTP. This step is identical to that in which you uploaded WordPress to your server or hosting account. If this was done by someone other than you, you are best to consult with that individual and find out how to complete this step.
  2. Once you are connected to the server, upload the entire LinkWorth folder to wp-content/plugins/. These directories are located in the WordPress root (main) directory.
  3. Login into your WordPress administration panel.
  4. Click on the Plugins tab. If you uploaded the folder in Step 2 into the correct location on your server, in the list of plugins you will see “LinkWorth”. Click on the corresponding “Activate” link.

FAQ

How do I know if my theme uses widgets?

If in the WordPress administration panel you have an option called ‘widgets’ under the ‘design’ or ‘theme’ menu, click on it. If the resulting page allows you to add widgets, your current theme uses widgets. if you do not see the link, or you receive a message that your theme is not widget enabled, your theme does not use widgets.

What is the name of the LinkWorth widget?

The widget is called ‘Links Widget’ under the ‘widgets’ section.

What does ‘Add rotating ads after what loop’ mean?

On some themes, there are multiple WordPress “loops” where posts are displayed. By default, LinkWorth ads are displayed at the bottom of the first of these loops. On most themes, this is correct, but occasionally custom themes will use custom loops to display posts in different ways.

If your ads appear in a different place than where you would expect them, you may talk to your theme author and ask them which loop is the “main” loop (such as the first or second loop). Afterwards, you may add the loop number (1,2,3 etc.) into the box to have ads display after it.

What is ‘Disable silent running’ mean?

Normally, LinkWorth does not add anything but the deals to your blog. Selecting to Disable silent running will add LinkWorth comments where deals are published.
