    I need to know if it is possible to add adsense ads to a skin other than subsilver for phpbb without doing it in the making of the skin, just like after you download a custome skin.

    If there is please tell me my sites getting like 200-300 hits a day and theres no adsense on it...:(

    I was wondering if anyone knew the answer. Can I add adsense ads to a phpbb skin that I downloaded on the computer?
    SEMrush
    O ya a few more quick Q's
    1. When I open notepad and try and open a .tpl file from my skin I can't even see the files..where can I open .tpl files?
    2. Are there any files that have something on the sidebar so you can add adsense there?

    You'll need to do it in the TPL files.

    I could probably fix a few for you cheap if you'd like.

    Shoot me a PM

    Drupal isn't phpbb, go to phpbb.com for templates.

    Certainly. It depends, of course, on where you want the ads to appear but in most cases that will be in {forum root directory}\templates\{template_name}overall_header.tpl - to put it at the top, add it under the logo, etc.; to put it in a side column, you'll need to add it into a new <td>... </td>.

    :confused:
    Assuming you are working on the local copy (not live on the server), if the file is blank in notepad you probably have a corrupted file.

    If you see "garbage characters", it probably means you need to identify .tpl files as text for your FTP program.

    Or do you mean how do you FIND those files? Look in {forum root directory}\templates\{template_name}.

    Not by default. See my comment above about adding in an extra column using <td>... </td>.
