[SOLVED] Placing ads in sidebars

Guys,

I need to know how to create a new widget or place my BlogAds code in between existing widgets. Can you tell me how to do that or point me in the right direction to a post that explains that? I saw this page: http://codex.wordpress.org/User:Tomh...s_to_Wordpress
but that talks about a sidebar.php and from what I can see, you've merged sidebar.php into header and footer, no?

Thanks!

Mark

if you are going to create a widget, tehn you should go read the material at wordpress.org about doing that.

You can add a widget to teh sidebar by going to dashboard->appearances->widgets and dragging a widget to the sidebar you want it to display in.

I know how to add existing widgets to sidebars but I don't know what the easiest way is of getting my ad code into the sidebar where I want it. Is it creating a widget or editing a specific .php file?

Thanks!

Not knowing what your code is makes it hard t tell you. If it is just HTML, stick it in a text wdget. If it is PHP, stick it in a text widget and get the exec-php plugin

I haven't run into anyone who has had to code their own widget for ad's.

Ah! Hadn't seen the Text widget. It's like an all-purpost blank slate, no? Can I use Javascript in one?

Don't know about javascript, best to check at wordpress.org since it is one of the default wordpress widgets.
