Copyright & Google ads

by Mick in Tutorials on 16 May 2010

Add a google ad next to your SMF copyright like ours here.

RC3 only,

Open index.template.php

Find:
// Show the "Powered by" and "Valid" logos, as well as the copyright. Remember, the copyright must be somewhere!
echo '
<div id="footer_section"><div class="frame">
<ul class="reset">
<li class="copyright">', theme_copyright(), '</li>
<li><a id="button_xhtml" href="http://validator.w3.org/check/referer" target="_blank" class="new_win" title="', $txt['valid_xhtml'], '"><span>', $txt['xhtml'], '</span></a></li>
', !empty($modSettings['xmlnews_enable']) && (!empty($modSettings['allow_guestAccess']) || $context['user']['is_logged']) ? '<li><a id="button_rss" href="' . $scripturl . '?action=.xml;type=rss" class="new_win"><span>' . $txt['rss'] . '</span></a></li>' : '', '
<li class="last"><a id="button_wap2" href="', $scripturl , '?wap2" class="new_win"><span>', $txt['wap2'], '</span></a></li>
</ul>';


Replace:
// Show the "Powered by" and "Valid" logos, as well as the copyright. Remember, the copyright must be somewhere!
echo '
<div id="footer_section"><div class="frame">
<table cellspacing="1" cellpadding="1" border="0" align="center" width="100%">
<tbody>
  <tr>
   <td>
<ul class="reset">
<li class="copyright">', theme_copyright(), '</li>
<li><a id="button_xhtml" href="http://validator.w3.org/check/referer" target="_blank" class="new_win" title="', $txt['valid_xhtml'], '"><span>', $txt['xhtml'], '</span></a></li>
', !empty($modSettings['xmlnews_enable']) && (!empty($modSettings['allow_guestAccess']) || $context['user']['is_logged']) ? '<li><a id="button_rss" href="' . $scripturl . '?action=.xml;type=rss" class="new_win"><span>' . $txt['rss'] . '</span></a></li>' : '', '
<li class="last"><a id="button_wap2" href="', $scripturl , '?wap2" class="new_win"><span>', $txt['wap2'], '</span></a></li>
</ul>
   </td>
   <td>google code goes here</td>
  </tr>
</tbody>
</table>';


Note the "google code goes here" in the code.  That's where you add the google 468x60 code.
