<?php if ( function_exists(’dynamic_sidebar’) && dynamic_sidebar() ) : else : ?> and <?php endif; ?>
How to use the pre-defined advertisement styles and files:
- Place your codes within the ads_728×90.php, ads_468×60.php, or ads_inline.php file.
- If you’re using the 468 or Inline ads, include them on your pages by using <div class=”ads_your_choice_here”><?php include(TEMPLATEPATH . ‘/ads_your_choice_here.php’); ?></div>
- (Do not copy and paste the codes I gave you. Type the codes to make them work correctly.)
