    Hi, I’m trying to integrate chitika ads to my wordpress site with methods above without success.
    no ads appear on my site, with plugin method generate this message: “IMPORTANT NOTICE!
    We were unable to verify your username because your host has disabled the use of Curl, our authentication method. You can manually verify that you have entered the correct username by logging into the Chitika Publisher Panel and matching the name in the top right of the navigation bar, near support and account. Please note that your email is not your username. ”
