Can I place my own banner ad on the page?

You can insert your own ads into your forum by following the directions below:

  1. Log in to your Website Toolbox account.
  2. Click the Appearance link.
  3. Select the Ads link from the Appearance menu.
  4. Copy the ad code from your advertising agency or ad management software.
  5. Paste the code for the ad in the appropriate text box.
  6. Save your changes.

If you have not signed up with an advertising agency yet, we would recommend signing up for Google Adsense. Once you have signed up, you can generate an advertisement code that can be added to your forum to earn money from it. Note that when you generate a new ad unit with Google Adsense, it may take a few hours for Google to begin serving ads on it. You'll also need to use a valid top-level domain name to sign up for Google Adsense.

For best results, we recommend placing a Leaderboard (728x90 banner) at the top of the page and a Wide Skyscraper (160x600 banner) on the left side of the page.

The Left Sidebar Ad does not appear when there is less available screen space, such as when the forum is viewed on a mobile device or in a small embedded space.

If you have your own banner image ad that you would like to use, you can use the following ad code:

<a href="Advertiser Website URL Goes Here" target="_blank"><img src="Image URL Goes Here" border=0></a>
