    2. Hello Muhammad Rafiq, I just visited your blog this time and really adsense ads are not showing. Perhaps your account is still in the probationary period, if it will be fully approved that is time adsense ads will be shown.

      Good luck bro!

  2. When we use the custom template so we can not change the template through Advance options in Customize section, But we can add some CSS codes inside the template as you did. Taking a backup before applying any code in template is always a good exercise to avoid trouble.
    Nice write up on the whole.
