Changing ads and accessing the index.php file (2 posts)

    Hi All

    My blog is here: http://www.monkeybeanmedia.com
    I am having an issue with finding the index.php file. I look at my site with firebug (an application for firefox that allows you to see the css, html etc) and it brings up a .php file that has links to the advertisement squares on the site. But i can't find this actual index.php file ANYWHERE in the folder. I have downloaded pretty much every file through Filezilla (my ftp client) and still have had no luck!

    What is the file that i see when i 'view source' through a web browser. When i find that, i can sort out the ad squares!

    Thanks in advance

    the file you see, it is my guess without owning your theme, is your sidebar.php. It points to a picture named !ads.gif.

    You will have to point them to actual ad's. Or feeds, or whatever.

    If it was me, I would create a directory and that is where the ad's (as in the pic's) would reside. And it would be as simple a pointing to those pics. They don't have to be in your WP install. I would most likely place that directory in the root directory so you can get to it pretty quick.

    now if you wanted to get fancy and have them 'revolve randomly', there are scripts available to do this, as well as size them to fit the area.
