Placing an advert on your website ↑ Back to Top

The MyStream theme has three ad sizes

  • A top banner (468 x 60 pixels)
  • A content banner (468 x 60 pixels)
  • Three side-by-side blocks (125×125 pixels)

All have dedicated positions on the site and only need to be set up and enabled/disabled in the theme options.
