    Hi there,

    I want to add some paid advertising to my site on my blog page. Is there a way to include a widget of call to action above posts and under banner? The banner would be 728 x 90

    Thanks in advance

    The Call to Action position is there for you but here is a layout of all available widget positions for you:

    Hi

    Yes I know about all those features and columns etc.. but they don’t seem to apply when inserting into ‘blog page’

    I’ll have another try, but when I try to use something, let’s say the inset top, it sits below content rather than above it?

    So, while yes, I could put an image into an area, it seems I am not able to do so with the blog page.

    ah… for the “blog”. This one you will probably have to modify the theme file for that then….easier to do if you are using a child theme. It means grabbing one of the sidebar lines of code and adding it to the blog files. If this is something you think you want to do, I can tell you which files.

    Yes, I do have a child theme of encounters.

    If it’s easy, then I will give it a go..

    The main blog page file is the index.php which you would upload into the child theme. If you then open the /page-templates/ folder in the theme, you will find page templates, one in particular is:

    frontpage-full-width.php

    In that you will see all the sidebars being loaded with code like this one:

    IF this one you want in your blog, you would paste that in the index.php file where it is in the page template….right after the opening div:

    Once done, you can try it out and put a text widget there with your banner or some sample text to see where it shows up in your blog main home page (where the posts show up). If you need this banner on the full post (single) view, then you have to do the same by copying the single.php file as well.

    Maybe this also helps:

    There is a plugin called “Black Studio TinyMCE Widget” that fit for your need, too, without code changing.
    http://wordpress.org/plugins/black-studio-tinymce-widget/

    It is very easy to use:
    Go to “widgets” and only drag and drop the ‘visual editor’ to ‘call to action’ or the place you want your advertise to appear.
    Than chose the ‘html’ register and put in your code for the advertise.

    This way you can add several advertises or simple text etc.

    With the plugin “Dynamic widgets” you can choose on wich sites or articles you want it to appear.
    Andre did a tutorial how to use this plugin in his tutorial.

    :cheer:
