How to place ads and Static Links after "post excerpt" at homePage in iBlogPro5?

Recommended Posts

manojgupta26

The site http://bit.ly/dABwMV is using the pagelines framework and have implemented a fixed area (on homepage) in which he is showing static links of his choice (see the image http://bit.ly/wzRyKb) Can this be done easily on iBlogPro5? My Site is http://bit.ly/w9ATGW and I also want to show an ad (300x250) and some links after the first post_loop. Would appreciate if you can tell me how can this be achieved?

Hi Mano, You could do this by adding the HTML for the add and use Special Recent Posts to create a short code to display your latest posts and then add this shortcode to the ContentBox section.

Please search our forums, before posting!

Hi Danny, I think you mis-understood my question! I actually want to place that very 'fixed content box' after one post at HomePage. How can this be achieved via pagelines running iBlogPro5

I inspected the user's site and according to the code, that content area the user added is a widget area. If you want to add an ad after or before the content area, you can use a hook. Do you want to add the ad after a single post on the blog page or at the end of the posts?

Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.

@manojgupta26 You can install and activate the Action Map plugin to see the hook locations live on your site. From there, you can write a custom hook to include whatever you want to appear in that location.

There is no unique hook available. Action Map plugin shows 'the_post' (hook) after every post excerpt on homepage. I want to show static links of my choice and Adsense Ad as available on site http://bit.ly/dABwMV "But only on Homepage and after 1st excerpt". I am not sure what code to add. Would really appreciate if you can tell what code should I add to achieve the result.

There is a hook, it was added in 2.1.3 http://screencast.com/t/63UShms4vJR5 Maybe your action map needs an update?

Manoj, I'm not sure how you make sure without just testing it and seeing what happens. Alternatively, one of our Pros could probably help you with this customization that's somewhat outside the scope of forum support. I'd recommend visiting http://www.pagelines.com/pros and writing to several of the pros requesting a quote and giving them specifics of your request.
