I'd like to use the WP125 plugin in one of my feature boxes. Is this possible? Thanks!

Very possibly, but you'll simply need to test it out. Please note that many people are saying it's not working with the latest WordPress:

You can try that, or see if there is a shortcode or JavaScript that can implement the widget/plugin. Thanks, Bryan

This is in the bottom of the ad settings `Your ads can be displayed using either the included widget, or by using the template tag.` BUT, you'll have to make a shortcode for it to get it in the feature box

yes i found that code in the WP125 documentation. I did not realize it had to be in shortcode. How do I make a shortcode for it?

You would need to use a plugin like so to create your own custom shortcodes:

Ok, downloaded the plugin, named the shortcode wp125lrwc, put this <?php wp125_write_ads(); ?> into the value box, saved it, put the shortcode [wp125lrwc] into the Feature Box text area and nada. what am I missing?

Because that plug-in assumes you know how to write a shortcode. It doesn't work to simply put the php statement inside as a value.

I think this might be an easier solution though.

Let me know if it works?

I suggest looking around the WordPress plugin directory for something that might be more suitable:

ok one of the plugins corrupted something and wiped out all of my custom css. sooooooo thank goodness for back ups :-) I'm going to not deal with this issue for now and go put everything back together. I think I'll come up with a different solution for using wp125, if I choose to use it. Once again, thank you for your replies and help. You guys are great!

Sorry to hear that, but yes... that's indeed why we back things up. Good Luck. Thanks, Bryan
