The Mediavine Control Panel is our lightweight, easy-to-use WordPress plugin.  It has several functions, with more to come! Let's take a look at what the Mediavine Control Panel Plugin can do. 

First, install the Mediavine Control Panel plugin. 

Find step-by-step directions on how to install the plugin here. 

Here's what the MCP plugin can do: 

CONNECT YOUR BLOG TO YOUR MEDIAVINE ACCOUNT

Under General settings, there is a field for your Mediavine Site ID. 

To find yours, go to your Mediavine dashboard, then navigate to Settings > Ad Setup. It will look like food-fanatic or my-baking-addiction. 

Copy and paste your Site ID into this field: 

INSTALL YOUR MEDIAVINE SCRIPT WRAPPER.

Every Mediavine site should be running the most up-to-date script wrapper. The script wrapper is what "talks" to your site and tells all the ads where to appear based on your Mediavine dashboard settings. We do update the script wrapper periodically, and so having the Mediavine Control Panel plugin installed means that you'll always have the most up-to-date version.  

Find out if you are running our most up-to-date script wrapper!

You may use this plugin to install the most recent version by checking the box next to "Include Script Wrapper." 

It's VERY IMPORTANT to note that if you already have the Mediavine script wrapper installed another way, you'll need to remove the other instance so that you only have one script wrapper running. (It may be inserted via your theme settings or a plugin like Header & Footer or Genesis Simple Hooks.)
One script wrapper = GREAT
Two script wrappers = not so great

ENABLE ADS ON AMP PAGES.

If you have Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) on your site, you can use the Mediavine Control Panel plugin to set up ads on those pages and help you monetize that traffic. Be sure to read through the following instructions completely before implementing AMP ads. 

Follow these instructions. 

Please do not enable AMP ads without talking with a member of the Mediavine team to discuss income implications.

FORCE SECURE ASSETS. 

Mediavine is completely SSL compatible and the Mediavine Control Panel plugin can help all the details of serving ads over your secure site really easy. We check for two things to make sure your ads and your site will continue to play nice:

  1. an up-to-date, asynchronous Mediavine script wrapper
  2. a Content Security Policy (CSP for short).

The Content Security Policy forces all ads secure. Without a CSP in place an ad could cause the secure lock in your browser to break. 

You can enable a Content Security Policy with the Mediavine Control Panel plugin by checking the box next to "Force Secure Assets."
