You can use the Plugin: Quick Adsense

Or you can use a Text Widget.
Add this to a text Widget:
Replace src url with url of your image.
Replace a href with your url.
Adjust also width and height with width and height of your image in pixels.

<div class="advertisement-widget">
	<a href="http://mymrt.net/wordpress/" target="_blank" >
	<img src="http://mymrt.net/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/yourimage.jpg"  alt="Your Alt text here" width="162" height="200" /></a>
</div>

Open in new window

Add this to your Style.css:
.advertisement-widget a {
	background: none;
}

.advertisement-widget img {
	border: 0;
}

Open in new window

Yes, copy sidebar.php to your child theme's folder and insert that code above the line:
<?php if ( is_active_sidebar( 'sidebar-1' ) ) : ?>

Understanding Web Applications

Hi,

I place sidebar.php in child theme and how do I edit this because I dont know if editor picks up the child or the original file as only sidebar.php is listed once?



Do I add code via just a div or do I need to add it i a php tag?
I can see it isnt difficult but I dont want to add code and do things the hard way.

      <?php if ( is_active_sidebar( 'sidebar-1' ) ) : ?>
      <div id="primary-sidebar" class="primary-sidebar widget-area" role="complementary">
            <?php dynamic_sidebar( 'sidebar-1' ); ?>
      </div><!-- #primary-sidebar -->
      <?php endif; ?>
</div><!-- #secondary -->

Go to Appearance/Editor/
Select Theme to edit:
Choose your child theme and press the Button Select.

You must not use theme's editor. You can also first make changes in sidebar.php locally using a text editor like notepad++ and then upload it to your site using FTP.

Do I add code via just a div or do I need to add it i a php tag?
You don't need to enclose it in php tag because in code above there is no PHP code.

I can see it isnt difficult but I dont want to add code and do things the hard way.
You can choose one of the other two solutions i have posted.
