Adding an advert

Our forum is now two weeks old and I have someone who want to advertise on it. I only want to add a small advert for them as I am hoping to get larger advertisers over time.

Can anyone talk me through how to add an advert please? I've gone onto the add advertisement bit in Admin but it says HTML, is this what I need to ask the advertiser to send me?

You'll probably be able to guess I'm a complete amateur at this!

Is it a javascript ad, or just an image which you link to the advertiser's site?

You will need them to provide you the relevant code and/or image.
 
They haven't sent anything yet but I would like an image that links through to their site - it's only a small company and doesn't need a moving advert, thank you

For that you can just use standard HTML:

HTML:
<a href="https://www.example.com">
    <img src="image.png" alt="Advertiser" width="200" height="100">
</a>

Upload the image to your server.

You will need to adjust the various bits to suit - URL, image path, size, etc.
 
Hopefully this will be my last question on this, but how do I upload a photo to my server? The link is working through my forum but just says advertiser as I haven't put an image on yet. Thanks

You can use an FTP program, or if you have cPanel, the File Manager app.

If it's the one at the top of the sidebar, yes it's working.

The image isn't very clear though so try and get something a little sharper and larger in its place.
