    I have been using a text widget box to put ads in the sidebar. I saw in the editor for the side bar a place for 125x125 ads but nothing happens when I place them there ? Can some paste exactly where they go because I don't know what I'm doing...Thanks

    Have you tried reading the documentation for your theme?

    Doesn't show where to drop the code in there. Isn't there a plugin for managing sidebars? Does anyone have a good trouble free plugin for sidebar customization.

    I don't think there is a suitable plugin for this kind of customisation as it's completely theme specific. Have you looked in your sidebar template file - probably called sidebar.php?

    Here is what the code shows. Where to ad the ads is the question..

    <!--
    This space is ready for 125*125 ads,
    if you wish to have advertisement on your site, enable it, otherwise just ignore it or delete it.

    <div class="box-right">

    Maybe this whole thing should have been shown to you.

    </div>

    I think you need to manually add your ad images to the sidebar code and then remove the <!-- and --> code that surrounds them.

    Hummm. Not sure either i don't even see the --> symbol anywhere. I think it goes < href=""> I will fool with it.

    How do you make the code appear the way it is in your block above?

    Use a backtick (left slanted apostrophe character on your keyboard) before and after the code. Or highlight your code and hit the [code] button in the post form.

    Thanks on the code thing ! Saw it written below but didn't know what it meant. I ask about the 125-125 ads because I saw it done very nicely at Lorelei Web Design. If you look at her site scroll down just a little and on the right you'll see a block with 4 - 125X125 ads together. That's what im looking to figure out.
