Name: Ads Themes blogger template

Added by: Michael

If you’re looking for a new blogger template for your ads campaign, Ads Themes template is the best for you. This template was converted from Ads wordpress theme of Blogging-secret by eblogtemplates .


It’s either a two or 3 column template (you can change it on the fly) so you get the best of both worlds. This Blogger template is what I call a “powerhouse” template since almost all the features you need are already built in. On top of that, it’s quite easy to setup and makes your blog look like a professional site without much effort.

Features Include

* Two or Three right side columns which are easy to switch (default is three)
* Three great location ad spots (header banner 468 x 60, three 125 x 125 buttons in sidebar, and a 468 x 60 AdSense banner above the first post)
* Integrated Feedburner rss and subscribe via email sidebar module (also includes “add to favorites” Technorati link)
* Built-in live traffic feed widget from FEEDJIT
* Built-in MyBlogLog and BlogCatalog recent reader widgets
* Dynamic tabs easily created by editing the link list widget
* Search box without the need for a “go” button
* Recent posts and comments widgets
* Nicely designed individual blog post comments section
* Properly setup Blogger layout editor

You can see from this screenshot that the actual editor is nicely setup so you don’t need to scroll or try and figure out how to click on the “edit” widget links. Most templates that you download make it tough to edit — not this one!

Ads Theme blogger template

This template does require some configuration in order to get it working as designed. Please follow the steps below if you’d like it to work properly. I also recommend backing up your existing template before changing just in case you run into any problems. You could also setup a new Blogger blog as a test area and try installing it there first

Top Tabs Setup

When you first install this template the top tabs will not be visible which is normal. You’ll need to go into the Blogger page element layout editor and edit the “Top Tabs” widget. It’s a link list so just add whatever tabs you want. Don’t add a “Home” tab since it will automatically appear once you create and save the tab widget.

Header Ad Banner

The default banner is hardcoded into the template but will disappear when you add anything to this widget. It’s an HTML widget so you can put the banner ad code straight into this box. This widget can also be deleted if you don’t have a 468 x 60 and you’ll just be left with the black header. Here’s the default ad code if you want to use it as a model:

<a href="" target="_blank">
<img src="" border="0" />

125 x 125 Ad Section

These are the three ads in the right sidebar which you need to edit the template code to change. Search the template code for and then look right below that for the three lines of ad code which are:

<a href=""><img src="" border="0px" /></a>

<a href=""><img src="" border="0px" /></a>

<a href=""><img src="" border="0px" /></a>

Recent Readers Widget

You’ll need to have MyBlogLog and BlogCatalog accounts if you want to use this widget. The default widget will show the original author’s pictures so please either delete this widget or change the account ids to your own. Once you’ve setup these up, then edit the template code and search for and then replace the account numbers with yours.

Live Traffic Feed Widget

This is a really cool feature within this template and the best part is you don’t need to do anything to setup it up! There are some further options if you click on “options >>” on your actual blog page under the widget but that’s it.
