WordPress : Banner Ad Embedding

Do you feel the need to earn revenue from your WordPress blog or website but you haven’t found the appropriate solution to convert traffic into ROI? If your answer is YES, then it is probable that this post is aimed at you. The ultimate WordPress banner embedding solution is the WordPress Banner Rotator plugin which has been developed and is maintained by Tribulant Software. With the banner rotator plugin, you can quickly and easily create as many image, flash and code (HTML & JavaScript) ads in the administration panel as you need to and assign each ad to a size and a zone (group). You have full control over each of your banner ads by specifying the source, location URL, target window, maximum impressions (optional), expiry date (optional) and much more… Once you have some banner ads available, you can start placing them on the fron-end of your WordPress website. There are three (3) different ways of embedding banner ads on your WordPress website.

Before you get started, you will need a site with a WordPress installation on which you can work and develop. Preferably a non-production site since you might need to do debugging throughout the development process. Start off by creating a “wp-thickbox” folder inside the “wp-content/plugins/” folder of the WordPress installation. All files of your plugin will be placed inside this “wp-thickbox” folder of yours. Then create a new file named “wp-thickbox.php” inside of this “wp-thickbox” folder and open it so that you can start coding inside this file. First and most importantly, you need to create a comment block inside the “wp-thickbox.php” file to tell your WordPress installation about your plugin. Note that this is a PHP comment block and needs to be inserted inbetween PHP tags. Here is an example : /* Plugin Name : Thickbox Plugin URI: http://domain.com Author: First Last Author URI: http://domain.com Description: Display...
