Exclude Pages from Default Menu in Twenty Eleven

If you are not using the custom menu, the theme uses `wp_page_menu()` as a fallback.

As always, start by creating a child theme of Twenty Eleven; http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

To exclude pages from the default menu, edit functions.php in the child theme and add something like:

//exclude pages from default menu//
function twentyelevenchild_page_menu_args( $args ) {
		$args['exclude'] = '17,38';
	return $args;
add_filter( 'wp_page_menu_args', 'twentyelevenchild_page_menu_args' );

The numbers refer to the page IDs of the pages you want to exclude.

Injecting Multiple adsense Ads into a WordPress Loop

The versatile code injects for instance adsense ad codes several times into the posts of an index or archive page, starting with a pre-set post, and then repeated in regular intervals (up to a set limit of ads per page).

For example, in a child theme of Twenty Fourteen, this code would be added into content.php at a suitable location:

//set the variables//
$nth = 3; //1,2,3,,4...; repeated every n-th post
$snr = 1; //1,2,3...; pre-set start with post nr
$limit = 3; //adsene TOS limit of ads per web page

$lsnr = $snr - 1; // correct for loop counter start at zero

if( $wp_query->current_post >= $lsnr && ( $wp_query->current_post - $lsnr )%$nth == 0 && (int)(( $wp_query->current_post - $lsnr ) / $nth ) < $limit ) { ?>
<?php } ?>

The example values would start the add in the first post, and repeated every three posts for a maximum of 3 ads.
