Have you noticed Typepad's new blog footer option? We introduced it to you briefly last month, but now we'd like to tell you a little bit about how to make it work for you!
Here, we have added a leaderboard ad to our footer:
Simply navigate to Weblogs > Design > Content and tick the box next to Blog Footer. Then, click the pencil icon to customize the content. To add custom text or code, select "Advanced". As an example, the following code can be used to place a leaderboard ad in your footer:
You can add HTML code, text or script there. Then, save your changes and you're done!
Our Pro and Business Class subscribers can also use some Custom HTML and CSS to place an ad or image above the blog banner.
Want to set this up on your own blog? You can use the code below:
<div style="position: absolute; top: 10px;">
YOUR AD SCRIPT or other content you want to display above your blog banner. This can be script, code or text.
Now, add the following code to your Custom CSS area. (Edit the height to match the height of the content you are displaying above the banner area)
Customizing the footer is a great, easy way to add some value to your blog!
