I heard that the easiest way for a non-techno, (boy is that me!), to set ads into the sidebars is to write a simple text widget and put my HTML in it and then assign it in the 'manage widgets' area.
1 - Is this true?
2 - Where do you code widgets?
3 - Is there somewhere I can knock off a generic that will do this?
4 - Since I'm such a newbie, what do I need to know about this, that I don't even know enough to ask?
I am using a widgeted theme.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
