How do I go about adding an advert to my forum main index page sidebar only, when I select the sidebar option in the admin it, an advert is added on every forum page on the side, I only want it on the default index forum page.. Thanks

I was also trying to do this by creating the ad and using custom location, creating the "key" then adding the {advertisement="key"} shortcode into a block above one particular forum category only.

Just like it describes here  but the only thing that shows up is the shortcode

Well, you can’t do that with the advertisement feature.

Would need custom code, Pages or third-party block plugins.

I have pages, what do I need to do? I used to be able to just create a custom code in IPB3 using an ad and then put the code into the template. I'll have to try and have a play.

You could do the same in 4.x, but it’s not really necessary if you have Pages. You can just create a HTML Pages block, put your ad code in it and then drag the block on your forum index. 

Would I be able to set it to show on the index sidebar only, like all the other sidebar options for IPB, wheres that option ?
