You'll have to edit the template or page code to insert ad code. For your ad rotator, you may find a plug in or you could use a generic ad rotation program like PHPAdsNew. More powerful programs will provide statistics, separate advertiser logins, etc.

Regarding Adsense, I keep getting 'password' or 'forum/board' type ads served on the password protected forums, is there a way to have adsense send relevant ads? Once in a while, a relevant set of ads appear behind a protected page.
Thanks for the reply!

search the google adsense FAQ for section targetting. This'll provide you with tags you can put in your templte around where the actual content is going to beon the page
adsense also looks quite heavily at the page title, which presumably is the name of this passworded forum; you could rename the forum, for example.

use phpadsnew for it. check phpbb mods database it has some modules which will help you out.
For programming help a page in phpbb is constructed using following tpls.
overall_header.tpl (/includes/page_header.php is the programming file.)
To simplify use extreme mod to have php code inside tpls. Edit overall_header.tpl and call the phpadsnew code to display your ads.
Hope it helps.

I actually have phpadsnew half installed (setting up db now :), but it's just for serving vendor ads, not adsense. Does it easily integrate with adsense and can I do both with the same installation?
Thanks for the reply!

James personally speaking I have just tried phpadsnew for testing purpose. It allows you to have js based ads thus making adsense possible.
I use my own system where I do not have rotating ads but it varies only when you refresh the page. This is based on probabilistic distribution, very simple integration to phpbb.

Adsense can't spider your password-protected pages - I haven't checked the Adsense TOS for details on this, but you might do a hack to let Mediabot spider those pages without a login.
