    [ Moderator note: de-capped the title and removed "urgent". Please do not use all caps and this is not "urgent". ]


    I am using Twenty Ten 1.1 theme and I need to add a advertisement in JAVASCRIPT ABOVE my header image using the following code:

    [ Moderator Note: Please post code or markup snippets between backticks or use the code button. ]

    <script type='text/javascript'>
    var atwMN='93367328', atwWidth='728', atwHeight='90'
    <script type='text/javascript'

    The website is: betterdecoratingbible (dot) com

    How would I do this and where would I put this coding in? In the header html? I also need it to be a centered banner.

    Please be VERY VERY specific as I'm not so HTML/JavaScript savvy.

    You should never change theme files directly so making a child theme is the first step:
    child theme

    It looks like you've already changed the header.php file -- and you have code above the DOCTYPE -- which causes major problems. You need to remove that or at least put it below the DOCTYPE -- but in a child theme.

    Thanks for your quick response! I have already attempted to make a Child Theme before and I haven't had any success since I have already made lotss of changes to my parent theme. If I keep a back up of all my .css and html code will I be safe then? I don't plan on updating wordpress so I don't think I will lose any of my changes.

    So do you think you could help me out with the Java Script above?

    Put your ad codes inside a div. Then put the whole thing just below the <body> tag.

    <div style="text-align: center;">
    Put codes here...

    Anyway you should rethink about updating your WP and Themes. You wouldn't want your sites to get hacked.

    No, keeping a backup is not a solution and not updating is a very bad idea -- as ronangelo mentioned, some updates have to do with security issues, so it's crucial that you do those.

    If you have a copy of what you have changed, you should be able to make a child theme and move the changes there.

    You still have major errors in your header.php file:

    thanks for all the advice! can someone please point me to a tutorial where i can make a child theme after i have already made changes to the twenty ten theme?

    can i just copy all of my files from twenty ten and put them into the new child theme?

    ronangelo - I do not have a body tag inside my header.php. this is my current header html, where would I insert the javascript for the ad so that it shows up above my header image?
