anyone know how to add a banner to your header section?
just made a direct sale for an advertising spot

 1:12 am on Apr 15, 2009 (gmt 0)

So I made a direct sale to have a banner in my header spot for one month. I cant figure out how to put it up though and need to get it up asap. I was sent the banner in a zipped folder.

Currently I just have a banner from CJ there which was a matter of copying and paste, this is a bit tougher.

Please help!

Do you not know how to put a graphic onto your site or is the time restriction the issue?

Unzip the folder on your PC. That should give you a filename like image.jpg.

Copy or ftp that file to somewhere on your web host, like say to /images/image.jpg.

Now, in place of the CJ banner, add this:
< a href="http://www.advertisers-website.com" ><img border="0" src="/images/image.jpg" >< /a >

(remove the spaces before the < and >.)

Is that what you were looking for?

Yea its almost there. It's two attached documents. One is a leaderboard.zip and the other is a flash.htm.

So I guess I should have said this is a flash banner. What is the code I toss up on my site after I unzip the leaderboard and save it to my webhost images folder?

Sorry, I know this is simple stuff.

Thanks again for your help!

OK, this is only a guess since I don't know what's in your files that they sent you.

Unzip leaderboard.zip. That will give you I bet a flash file. FTP or copy that file up to your website. Put it in the root or main directory of your website, or perhaps the webhost images location. Or copy it to both spots to be safe (I'm doing a best guess here). It's not the end of the world if you have two copies of an image on your site.

Next, cut and paste the html text contained in the file flash.htm into the spot in your page where you want the banner image to be displayed, i.e. replace the current cj code with the code contained in the file flash.htm.

My suspicion is the leaderboard file contains a zipped up flash file, and the flash.htm file contains the html that calls that flash file. If so, then the above instructions should work.

And congrats on bagging an advertiser directly. That's top tier stuff!
