I need to put an ad on the Home,Search,Tag & Archive pages but not on individual post pages. I only need the ad to appear once above the first post in the article/post area. So, in my infinite CSS wisdom ;) I inserted the code in the Main Index area of the theme just above <div class="main"> code. This did actually show the ad on the home page but with no padding between the ad & the top of the 1st post.
So, how do I ad padding & did I put the code in the correct area of the theme?
