Wordpress code to show ad in sidebar on homepage only

    Greetings,
    I'm hoping someone can help me with a piece of code that I can wrap around an ad in my sidebar so that the ad shows on the homepage/index page only and not on post pages.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you in advance for your time and efforts.

    I managed to find a piece of code that works. I thought I would post it here in case anyone else needs a similar fix for their wordpress site:
    As for Adsense - best performing ad format is the 250x300, so consider using something like that, showing either at the top left or top right of your post.

    <?php if(is_home() && $post==$posts[0] && !is_paged()) { ?>
    Advertisement code goes here and is displayed on the homepage only
    <?php } ?>

    Is there a code to place ads everywhere EXCEPT on the home page? This code is perfect but it leaves a gap on other pages where the ads were.

    This is the perfect code:

    <?php if (is_home()) {
    ?>
    Advertisement code which is displayed on homepage only
    <?php
    }
    ?>

    Replace home with single to display ad on single page only.
    Cheers :D

    Agreed, the above code works if you have to show the sidebar only on the homepage. But as per different requirements, I wanted to show sidebar on all pages but the homepage. I googled and found these two links which I found interesting (One) (Two)

    <?php
    $homepage = "/";
    $currentpage = $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'];
    if($homepage==$currentpage) {
    echo 'Adcode here' ;
    }
    ?>

    This Will Work :) And I use this :D
