XF 1.3 Managing advertisements on XF forums?

Hey Guys,

Another basic question... sorry but are there resources available in these forums/XF website (or can someone give me a break down) of how I can manage Ads in my forum? I know there are some add ons I can use but how do I do it with just out of the box XF?

I would like to experiment with using AdSense on our game forums so that's why I'm asking.
