    This WP uses a lot of plugins and a slightly moderated theme called Branford Magazine. The worst challenge was to include the Google (adsense) search. Tried everything, but had to end up with a hardcoded and completely wrong page in HTML. But the search works.

    Any opinions?

    Are you trying to put the Google AdSense search in the sidebar, in the main section of the index page, or in a post? Generally, when you're using JavaScript -- which most AdSense relies on -- you'll need to put it into the sidebar.

    (I've had some luck putting JavaScript into posts by putting the code into a table... I talk about that in my book about Branford Magazine.)

    However, have you seen Michael Oeser's newest theme (in beta as of mid-April 2008), called Wynton Magazine? It includes an advertising section in the middle of the homepage.


    I haven't tried that theme yet, to see what it does, but it may include some useful code for your purposes.

    (For the record, Sites that Soar! -- the book that I co-authored -- does not offer help with Google AdSense. It's strictly about the basics of installing and customizing Branford Magazine and Mimbo, though I make a brief reference to using tables in posts, for JavaScript references.)

    As far as Google search, I probably would hardcode a WP template for the results page and use a sidebar widget.

    But my point for posting is that I REALLY like your site. It's very clean, user-friendly, did I mention spanking clean - it gets an A+ in design from me as far as usability goes, and personal preference. I like sites where the design is secondary to strong content - and your site hits it out of the park on that count. Later on, you might try different graphic touches in the header - your topic is rich with illustrative possibilities! (did that make sense - I've been up all night...)

    Good job! Bookmarking your blog, darlin'!
