    Hello!

    To insert ads in particular locations on my articles, I place a particular string within the location of the article where I want the ad to appear.

    For example, I may place the string ###replaceme### somewhere inside of an article.

    What I want to do is use the php replace tag (str_replace?) to replace that string, with a string of my ads.

    Because the_content() is a function call, I can’t seem to replace it effectively though. Any tips?

    Also, the block that is replacing the string may look something like:

    [code]
    <div>
    Title For Something<br>
    Body about that something, etc.
    </div>
    [/code]

    Is there any way to wrap that code into a variable? Cold Fusion allows you to do it with CFSAVECONTENT, but in php, I wasn’t aware of a way to do it. Worst case scenario, I could force it all on a single line, but being able to save the variable and keep the formatting is always nice 🙂

    Thanks!
