How to add ads? Maybe a widget?
 
First, I'd like to thank the creator(s) of the Atahualpa Wordpress theme. Having struggled with other WordPress themes, I found this one to the best WP theme I've ever used. I like the design, and I think the interface is one of the most user-friendly I've ever seen. THANK YOU!

In a previous blog, I used the Atahualpa 2 theme. As I wanted to include Amazon and Google advertisements in that blog, I edited the SIDEBAR file to include these links, which seemed to work just fine.

As I upgrade to Atahualpa 3, it appears that I can longer edit the SIDEBAR file, as that file just doesn't exist in this version of the theme.

What's the easiest way to insert these Amazon and Google advertisements? Is there an easy way to create a widget (or multiple widgets) so I can insert ads in the right side, left side, or even the header?

The usual way to add ads or any arbitrary content to sidebars is via text widgets. Drag and drop a text widget into a sidebar, paste the adwords code into the text widget and save.

My thanks. This information wasn't obvious to me, so I appreciate the info.

Having never created a text widget before, that was another mystery that was easily solved. It's nice to know that I can add multiple text widgets.
