Thanks for this Craig. Confused on a couple of points.

Once I've created the new Adsense code, where do I paste it into my template?

Also, where is the Individual Archives button?

In your copy of entry-individual, which you get from the TypePad site mentioned, you place the Adsense code just after the right-pointing arrow head on the /div, just after the code called 'entryifextended'.

This will place your adverts just above the footer line with the date, category and permalink.

The Individual Archive will only be displayed once you have converted your design to Advanced Templates.

Then you will get a list of the templates your site uses.

Hope this is clear.

Still not quite there... When I go to save the 'entry-individual' template I am asked to name an 'output file' What should I name it?

You've got me with that one. Once you have prepared your entry-individual file within a text editor and placed your adsense code at the correct position you can just save this to your PC.
Then go into your TypePad account and go to Design and Edit Current and you should have a list of the templates your site uses.
Make sure you are working on the Advanced Templates.
Then create a new template module, paste in the code you have prepared above and save it as entry-individual.
Finally make the tweak to Individual Archives and publish your pages.
Hope this helps.

OK - have now done everything correctly (I think) and republished several times. No ads are showing up just yet. Does it take a while before they kick in?? Hope I haven't made a total arse of it...

Hi Craig,

I just wanted to drop by and say thank you for all your help. I have a lot of work to do and think I need a lie down already. Still kids' TV beckons so I may not make it.


Thanks so much for your help. For future peep trying this - I found the 'advanced template' part the key as I wasn't on it already. so first thing's first, make sure you are on an advanced template (not obvious to find but check out the tips in the RHC which I followed). when you've done that - it's a quesiton as Craig says as cutting and copying the code you have created. the only mistake i made was to forget about case perfect: if it says entry individual don't put Entry individual or entry-individual etc. thanks again!! I'll give you my first profits (NB profits!!!)

Hi Clare, glad you were able to work it all out. Other thing I should mention is the importance of keeping a back-up of your templates.
Can just be as simple .txt files but at least it means you can roll back should something go astray.
All the best, Craig
