Placing an advert on your website
The MyStream theme has three dedicated ad sizes available to you. A top banner (468 x 60 pixels), a content banner (468 x 60 pixels) and 3 side-by-side block (125×125 pixels) adverts. It also comes with an adsense widget.
The top banner (468 x 60 pixels), content banner (468 x 60 pixels) and 3 side-by-side block (125×125 pixels) adverts have dedicated positions on the site and are only required to be set up and enabled/disabled in the theme options.
The Adspace widget is set up under the widget options and can be positioned in any of the sidebar widgetized zones. It can be any size, obviously not bigger than the sidebar widths though.
