Help: Placing ad code before the closing "</body>" tag?

Discussion in 'HTML & Website Design' started by mrfootballnews, Feb 21, 2017.

    Hi, I'm a beginner to Wordpress. I've been sent an ad code to place on my website with the instructions as 'Place the script tag below just before the closing "</body>" tag'.

    I was told by a friend that the body tag is found in the theme footer. I placed the ad code beofe the tag and it isn't showing.

    Can anyone with a better knowledge explain what I need to do please?

    Thank you in advance, i'm sure this is a silly question but everyone starts somewhere :)

    Your friend is correct, and that placement should work.

    If you'll PM me a copy of your theme footer I'll have a look & see if I can help you out.

    I sent you a message back. How did you open your theme footer? Did you click on the footer link in your sidebar?

    Looks like you also need to place your code above the </footer> tag.
