    Dear Sir,

    Would you like to tell me how to put ads in my forum. I cannot find any configuration or setup for that.

    There are various templates in the Admin CP which have been located in common places where you might want ads.

    For example.

    Admin CP > Appearance > Templates

    If you type ad_ into the name field and search, these are all of the templates that have been reserved for ads.

    You can just paste your ad code into the desired templates.

    I have been specific and detailed.

    You need to go into Admin CP.

    Go to the Appearance menu along the top.

    Click the Templates link on the left hand side.

    In the filter box type "ad_"

    This will list a load of templates which you can paste advertisers code into. So if you wanted an advert to appear at the bottom of the sidebar you would find the template called "ad_sidebar_bottom" and paste the code provided to you by your advertising company.

    Only thing I didn't say was some of these templates may already have code in them, such as:

    <xen:hook name="ad_sidebar_bottom" />
    If you see this, don't remove it.

    If you use Google Adsense you won't really make anything under 100k monthly page views, and even with 100k page views you'll be looking at only a few dollars.

    Then which other services you would want me to look at?

    Google AdSense is probably the best paying one out there, with the exception of directly sold ads. I honestly wouldn't even run ads until your activity gets to at least that level.

    I would also not run ads until I hit the required userbase and page views. thanks for your suggestions :)
