I'm just getting started with WordPress and am in the process of selecting a theme. I'm using "WordPress for Dummies" to help me. I notice that nowhere in "Dummies" nor in any theme description is the topic of advertising discussed. Given that the desire of some (many?) bloggers is(at some time)to sell advertising on their blog, I'm thinking that I must be missing something here: I must not know enough to ask the right questions. But here goes:
If I plan to have to have advertisements in a sidebar, what do I need to know? When I look at a theme description, what information should I look for that lets me know that I will be able to post advertisements if I use that particular theme?
Will I need specific widgets for this purpose? If so, why have I not found any widget descriptions that reference advertising?
Great appreciation to anyone who can help.
