    just need some help. I tried the rw forums but no one seems to want to answer my questions. any help would be greatly appreciated

    How do I go about imbedding google ads inside blogs // styled text pages? It works fine when the ads are in the side bar, but what about when i want it in the actual page? i tried copying the code directly into the styled text page. that doesnt work. i tried copying the code, highliting it and selecting "ignore formatting" as suggested by the developer. that doesnt work either.

    any ideas?

    Have you tried making a new page as an HTML page in RW instead of choosing styled text?

    I have, it works fine - but I was hoping I could do it in styled text pages because its really easy to format stuff without knowing extensive html

    Have you tried actually uploading the page to a web server and then testing it? I am able to insert HTML, Google ads included, directly into my styled text pages in RapidWeaver but they are not viewable until it hits a real server, much like the PHP Contact forms in RapidWeaver. One thing you might want to try is inserting a table into your Styled text page and placing the ad code in there, this might make it immediately viewable for you. The table can be invisible and only a single cell as below.

    place your ad code here

    Note the lack of any <html> tags, that's important. Seems to work fine for me.
