Hi guys,

I need a bit of help with a small issue please.

On http://CooliMag.com I use the 3 column template with "Juggledad's Multi Column/Custom Query".
I would like to ad a 300x600 AdSense add on the first row/column. Basically, this add will replace the first article in "Juggledad's Multi Column/Custom Query".
-- Please check the printscreen here http://coolimag.com/wp-content/uploads/media/CMAds.png for the exact location --

How can I achieve this? I tried creating a widget area in that position, but I did not find my way around.

Thanks in advance and sorry for the trouble.

in version 3.7.12 you can now add a widget area above the center column as a theme option (see the Center Area option page)

I would use that to add a widget area, then use the 'widget logic' plugin to only show it on the page in question.

This way you don't have to touch the template and the widget area will exist over upgrades.

Hi Juggledad,

Thanks for the answer.

I tried that but it ads a widget area ABOVE your 3 row template - check http://CooliMag.com. I left it on.

What I need to accomplish is to have an AdSense 300x600 ad on the place of the first post (first row, first column - check the printscreen - where the red rectangle is) then have post excerpt.
http://coolimag.com/wp-content/uploads/media/CMAds.png

So, basically the first line will display 1 add and 2 post excerpt. The second line will display 3 posts and so on ....

Regards,
E

That isn't going to work without making some changes to the template. and at the moment I can't think of how to do it. If something comes to me I'll let you know.

I see.

How about I use a sticky post and insert the AdSense code into the manual excerpt area? It could achieve the same result, but this brings a couple of new issues.
Can you please help with each of the below?

1. On the homepage - how do I get to remove the link from the post title (ex: the post title is "Sponsored Links")
2. The last time I tried this on a different site, the AdSense was not showing. Any idea how to allow the AdSense Javascript on the homepage?
3. I used to use the below CSS insert to remove the Footer and Read More from Sticky posts on the home page. The code no longer works. Even if it is inserted in the CSS, the Footer and the Read More strill appear on the sticky posts.

/* Remove Read More On Sticky Posts
----------------------------------------------- */
div.sticky div.post-readmore {
display: none;
}

/* Remove Footer On Sticky Posts
----------------------------------------------- */
div.sticky div.post-footer {
display: none;
}

you can't (easily) I'd hide the title (via CSS) and if you want the title, put it in the text portion of the post and style it as you want

}
there is no class 'post-readmore'
the footer from the sticky is hidden

Sorry for my late answer.

Nice to hear you reserve quality time with the grandkids . They're the most important ...

Re: "my paing customers" - how much would you charge and how long would it take to fix the AdSense posting in "Juggledad's Multi Column/Custom Query"?

Is it simpler for everybody if I go with a different theme?

with 3.7.12 there is a new feature that allows you to add widget areas to teh top or bottom of the center area. This works with the 'multi column/custom query' template.

Thanks ...

My issue is that I need the Ad placement on the first post place from left to right on the first row.
http://coolimag.com/ - the ad needs to be placed under Sponsored links. The feature you pointed only allows insertion of widget areas ABOVE or BELOW the center area.

without actually going in and doing it my wild guess is a couple hours to figure out what to do, code, test and document it.

There are several approaches I can think of.
- hard coding the ad in the template
- coding a widget area in place of the first posts location
- coding an option to put a widget area before post 'n'
The approaches increase in flexibility, complexity and time

I guess "coding an option to put a widget area before post 'n'" is the good way to do it.
This way, if someone want to insert a Sponsored Post withing the articles, they can do it via this widget.

Meanwhile, as I do not have programing skills, I will have to go with a different theme, hoping that you will bring these adjustments to the "Juggledad's Multi Column/Custom Query" sometime.

since I don't much care for AD's on sites, it is very unlikely this will happen without someone sponsoring it. And seeing as you don't think it is worth sponsoring it, I don't expect anyone else will either.

Good luck with what ever theme you choose. I'll close this thread.
