Issue with setting the advertisement plugin. | Forum

So far I can set ads only at the bottom and the top. I want to add ads to the wall on the right and in the center of a page. As at now only the top and the bottom of pages can accept ads.
How do I fix that?

Kumi,  you can add more adds to other places by manually pasting banner code into the corresponding HTML file.

I can add the code to the html using ftp. Is that what you mean? Now I want to add banner ads to the side wall using ads plugin. Is that possible using the advertisement plugin provided by oxwall?

If I decide to use ftp to insert ads, it will be difficult for me to make appear at the side bar.

Kumi, currently advertisement plug in allows posting banners to header and footer only.
So it is not possible to post banners to other places using this plug in, unless you customize it ( custom code modification).

>>If I decide to use ftp to insert ads, it will be difficult for me to make appear at the side bar.

I am not sure what you meant here. Are you asking whether it is difficult to add banners via FTP?

I hope I have understood well, if not, sorry ....

Yesterday I installed the plugin "Advertisement
Simple banner ad management with geo-targeting "and I have it open here, shows options on top, footer and on my right side, if my ativesse has 3 columns, do not know if the show twice, but yes in the sidebar shows.

just add a banner on the side and it worked!

If you have cpanel you can open the appropriate html files and add your ads code.

If you are on FTP you can still do that.

I think the issue had to do with the theme I was using. I changed the theme and now I can have sidebar ads.

But I have one issue here.
I have to insert a custom code to the header.php file. I am using an FTP Client to edit the files but I can't locate the header.php file. I need the map to the header.php file. Thanks

Kumi, checked Oxwall .zip file,  we don't have header.php file, unless I missed it while searching.

I believe infolinks does not want you to embed their code inside your blog content. It will require you to add few scripts in the head/body section.. Verify it first.

yeh they want the scripts in the body section........how can i do it?

Purusothaman Ramanujam
Great. so you now understand it has nothing to do with changing any html of blog posts.

Go to the link and add your scirpt in head or tail section. that should work.

It's not fake, it works. What's your problem with it? Might be best to open a new topic.

Rudolf, the advertisement plugin works as it is advertised. What is the exact issue you have with the plugin?
