Free Training For Banners In Website Header And Footer

How nice would it be when you can insert your own advertising banner on top of your website and under the footer of your website? This training will take you step-by-step towards displaying a banner on every post and page.
1. INSTALL A PLUGIN
I will take you through this process with clear steps and screenshots. Before you can insert these banners on top of your website you need to install the free WP plugin “Header and Footer Scripts”.
This is how it looks, click on “Add New”, install and activate.
Do you have the plugin installed? Then the next thing is, you need a leaderboard banner (728×90).
2. CREATE A BANNER
You can create one for free on DesignWizard or Canva.
I have made this leaderboard banner on DesignWizard.
3. + NEW – OPEN A TEST POST
Open a test post, stay in the visual tab and upload your banner to the WP Media Library, insert your banner. When your banner is added you choose “center” and you can add any link you want to it. Hop over to the text tab and copy the code.
4. GO TO THE HEADER AND FOOTER SCRIPT PLUGIN
You can find the plugin under settings on the left of the dashboard. When you are there you see 2 boxes, one for the header and one for the footer. You can, if you want to, paste the created code into both areas. And click on “Save”.
Your banner will now appear on top of every post and page and in the footer.
But you want different banners on top of every page, go to point 5!
5. DIFFERENT BANNERS ON TOP OF EVERY POST
Every post has screen options, and you will find the “Header script” up there too. When you check the box, it will appear under your post.
And when you add a banner code right beneath your post, the banner will only appear on that specific post.
So, this is how you can insert a different banner on top of your header, and of course, I have added a banner above my header on this post 🙂
You can change the banner anytime you like. This period my Black Friday Banner will be up!
