I have received a lot of emails from others wanting to know how to add banners (like we have on this site) to our popular i3Theme.  Adding banners ads to the i3Theme is very easy and can be done in just a few simple steps.  I hope this guide will help you with the process:

Adding Banner In The Header:



  1. Log-in to your wordpress dashboard  (
  2. Click on the “Appearance” Tab
  3. Click on “Editor
  4. On the right side panel select “Header (header.php)
  5. Search the code (towards the middle) for the line: “<?php include (TEMPLATEPATH . ‘/searchform.php’); ?>
  6. Immediately following this line insert the following code and edit it for your banner: “
    <br /><br /><a href=””><img src=”” alt=”WordPress Web Hosting” width=”299″ height=”60″ hspace=”27″ class=”alignright” title=”WordPress Web Hosting” /></a>”
  7. Select “Update File”
