    With the rise of Paid-to-Blog sites on the 'net, it's been easy to make money while blogging. The problem with most paid-to-blog sites is they don't permit ads from other sites in the entries. Paysite1 (for example) is the only Category/Tag I need these ads to show up in every time it's chosen on a new post.

    Say I have a category named Sponsors, that's broken down into three sub-categories, Paysite1, Paysite2, Paysite3

    Is there a way to format my index.php/single.php template files so that an image will load only if Paysite1 is linked as the category? This way it isn't a static image in the closing of all the weblog entries, it's only displayed as a direct link with the Paysite1 category?

    I hope I've said this clearly, my apologies if I haven't. From a programmers stand point

    If ($category=20)
    {display: http://www.site.com/advertise.gif}
    {display: http://www.site.com/blankimage.gif}
    End If

    Is there a hack for this? I went through the codex and wp-plugins.net but nothing really stood out.

    I'm using WP 2.1.3.

    If I understand well what you'd like to do - I'd suggest to take a look at the Category Templates and this plugin: http://guff.szub.net/2005/07/21/post-templates-by-category/

    Also look into the is_category() and in_category() functions:

    Thank you very much for your replies but I still have a small issue. These templates only work for individual entries. I'd need it to setup on the index.php file as well.

    Any advise?

    Those conditional tags will work anywhere. Look again.
