    Wordpress AD

    I was wondering if it was another way to display ads without using plugins. Im not really sure if this website is using a plugin but I would like my ads like this one.

    If there is any tutorials or something dealing with the topic above can you please link me.

    Sure, by editing the sidebar file (sidebar.php) in your theme and pasting in the ad code.

    So the ads displayed on that website was a plugin?

    I didn't say or imply that

    He could be using a plugin to manage the ads, or he could've put them in his sidebar file directly

    yea Dan's is right you can edit your site's "sidebar.php" file to get that look. Most of the time with sites like the one u provided they don't use plugins but modify code in sidebar to get that look.

    No plugins or scripts, just the ads

    <a href="advertiser's url"><img src="advertiser's ad image"></a>

    The ads on that page is from the sidebar.php editing. It is not a plugin. Sometimes themes like these have their own dashboard for that certain theme alone that you can edit everything.

    Looks to me like the Ads are part of the Theme Design. A lot of premium designers are creating Themes that have the ability on the Backend Admin Panel to just cut and paste your AD Code Directly into the Template with no hassles. There are also plugins to do this and you can use widgets as well. I like to choose templates that have built in ad functionality so I can change them faster.

    that site is definitely using a template that has the ad blocks built in. so he or she just enters the ad code into the admin end of wordpress. it will be easier for u to just buy a template rather than trying to figure out how to add the ads manually. u risk your pages being misaligned. good luck.

    Wordpress Ads is very effective in earning traffics as well as in promoting your sites and giving quality links also.
