Problems with Installing Joomlaspan Adsense ClickSafe Module

As a new users of Joomla, I find template module positions confusing and very frustrating. Although by default we get a large number of module positions (we can check out this by going to "go to Site > Template Manager > Module Positions"), however, when modules are assigned to these positions the modules are not shown. This happened to me when I tried to install Joomla adsense clicksafe extension module, it's very strange and confusing, and frustrating, too.

I assigned the Joomlaspan Adsense Clicksafe module to the left position after I successfully installed it, the ads showed up, but nothing was shown on other positions, header,right,bottom,etc, nothing.

Many weeks passed, I played with this extension again last night, I wondered that if it was the problem of the template, I used archzone template, which was a very simple design. What if the module does not automatically show up in a particular template when I haven't got these positions available in my pages. Because it is the template which determines the positions available. To be able to use a position I may have to change the template's source code.

So I changed my template to rhuk_solarflare_ii, hooray! Ads showed up on the right position! But many other positions missing, which includes the bottom position. Then I open my template, edit its html code, added this sentence bellow the mainbody:

It worked! Ads started to show up on the bottom position.

Vodafone Router Configuration for Incoming Connection and other Services

This post is about specific Vodafone Home Broadband Router configuration for Incoming Connection and other service on your home computer. This is not a tutorial, and will not be going into details of the services and router configuaration, I just want to point out couple of points you need to pay attention to. 1. Port Forwarding. Vadafone Router has its own name for Port Forwarding, it's called Port Mapping under Port Management category.The picture below shows that I set up web server on my desktop, I map my local address on port 80; and I set up PPTP incoming connection by mapping local address on port 1723. Port Forwarding 2. Exposed Host.
