XF 1.2 Best way to add banner ads?

Can anyone suggest the best way for me to add a simple row of banner ads at the top of the forum pages for the likes of amazon UK, USA etc?

Use the built in ad_templates.

My signature has a link in the FAQ and there are also a resource for AdSense.
I notice that I can see the banner when I'm not logged in - what permissions do I need to change to make it visible to everybody?
I can only see it when I log out which makes positioning it difficult.

I haven't added a conditional.

I want it to display to visitors, registered users, admin, etc - everybody.
<xen:hook name="ad_above_top_breadcrumb" />

I just copied and pasted the code direct from amazon. It works for me.

Must be a browser bug - Safari I don't see the banner, in Opera it works fine.
We've played around a bit and have discovered that it shows on the home page, but not in the forums, so if you have a bookmark which goes straight to 'New Posts', then the banner is not visible.

I've tried other locations but I suspect it's amazon's iFrame code that could be the problem.

Any suggestions?
