Adding a banner to the sidebar

Adding a banner to the sidebar of TwentyTen is as simple as dragging a widget, if you have the code to insert already prepared for you.

This is usually the case with affiliate programs, but let’s go through the steps anyway.

1. First log into WordPress with an administrator account.

2. Select “Widgets” from the “Appearance” section of the toolbar.

Go to the Widgets

3. Drag the “Text” widget onto the primary or secondary widget areas.

Paste in the HTML code

5. Click on “Save”.

Save

6. The banner should now appear in the sidebar.
