    Like? I'd visit the phpBB forums and the web site was well. You will find several mods for phpbb. Things like adding AdSense, etc.

    You will need some core file changes and a special function. I have something already setup. PM me if interested. Cost will be around $50 to implement this.

    You can do it yourself.

    1. get the affiliate code to insert and decide where you want it placed
    2. the most likely places to add the code would be in \templates\{template name}\overall_header.tpl or \templates\{template name}\overall_footer.tpl

    For an example, see the forum link in my signature.

    I'd be VERY careful with putting certain affiliate links in the overall_header and overall_footer files. Programs like Adsense have very specific policies about having their ads on certain pages including search, login, memberlists etc.

    I would suggest manually adding them to the actual pages such as view_topic_body and view_forum_body etc.
