    Just add it to the template file. To make it show up after the first post only, you need a counter to see which post you’re looping through. I did something like this:

    <ol id="thread" class="list:post">

    <?php foreach ($posts as $bb_post) : $del_class = post_del_class(); ?>
    <li id="post-<?php post_id(); ?>"<?php alt_class('post', $del_class); ?>>
    <?php bb_post_template(); ?>
    </li>
    <?php if ($adcounter == 0) {
    $adcounter++;
    // <div id="adcode">paste ad code here</div>
    } ?>
    <?php endforeach; ?>

    </ol>

    Basically just add the adcounter check and ad code right after the closing <li> right after the post_template. You’ll have to adjust the particulars for your installation, but this is the basic process.

    You will need someone who can help you debug the code then. Something is out of order.

    You can post your whole topic.php at pastebin and post a link here:

    Make sure you let the code stay there longer than one day (default is a month which should be OK)
