    Hi @juutti and @sterndata for your help.

    I am an idiot. I just realized what was wrong, and it was all my fault. When I installed the WP 4.9 update, I had a complete brain fart and forgot to insert the tracking code scripts for Google analytics and adsense into header.php.

    Thank you again for being so helpful to morons like me. If I had seen your messages earlier, instead of just now, that would have triggered my memory as well.

    yeah, I know I am supposed to use a child theme, but I was never able to figure out how to do that. Since those scripts are the only lines I add to any wordpress file, it was the lazy way out for me. Guess I finally suffered the consequences!

    One reason the missing scripts didn’t dawn on me was that the website kept serving up Adsense ads. If both GA and Adsense had stopped working at the same time, maybe I would have restored my brain function earlier.

    Thank you again for all you do, and my apologies again…
