How to Quickly Add Adsense to Thesis Theme

by Elaine on July 13, 2012

Adding Adsense to your Thesis theme without an Adsense WordPress plugin is pretty easy.  The hardest part is deciding where to put the ads and finding that exact location.  I wanted my Adsense at the bottom of my posts and somehow they showed up as well on the front page on the bottom of the 2 posts, which was Ok I guess since I didn’t have any Adsense code on the main page.   You will need a few things before you can proceed with adding Adsense to Thesis theme:

Prerequisites:

  • Must have Thesis theme installed.  If you don’t have it installed, click here to download it now.
  • Must have the Thesis Openhook plugin installed

Overview of Steps to Insert the Adsense code into Thesis:

  • Install Thesis Openhook WordPress plugin
  • Go to Thesis Openhook Customization Manager
  • Find the Thesis hook for below a post
  • Insert Adsense Code

1.  Install Thesis Openhook Wordpress Plugin

Hello Elaine,

Thank you for your advice about using Thesis Hooks. I have just transferred my sites over to Thesis, and I must admit I was a bit concerned about using the Hooks in case I messed the whole site up.

I wanted to place Adsense in the sidebar, so I jumped in and followed your instructions to the letter, installing the Plugin etc, just changing the position of the Hook to “before sidebar two” in the drop down menu.

It worked perfect, and the Ad is now in place.

Thank you for the simple, clear and precise instructions of how to do this.

Yours sincerely,

Ken Wilson (Melbourne, Australia)
