Every website owners want to display their ads in header, sidebar, footer, and inside the post above or below. I already explain abouthow to place ad box inside the post of thesis theme. Here, you can learn about how to place the ad before the post title of thesis theme.

 'before_widget' => '<li class="widget %2$s" id="%1$s">',

'after_widget' => '</li>',
 'before_title' => '<h3>',
'after_title' => '</h3>')


function post_abovead() { ?>

<?php }

add_action('thesis_hook_before_post_box', 'post_abovead', '1');

    Good Afternoon,

    I am not certain if this is the spot to ask, but I am attempting to add a flash video above the post title on 2 particular pages.

    I want the video to autoplay 1 time and then stop. I have tried using a youtube video, but it looks cheap.

    Can anyone recommend a plug in or the proper code to allow me to do this?

    Thank you in advance.

      If you don’t like the youtube palyer, you can go for flow player or jw player. Flow player would be great to look at. Autoplay possible there.

    Hi Pascal,

    This is a great blog. I’ve landed here several times today looking for help with thesis!

    I’m hoping you can give me some advice with something I’m trying to do in thesis with widgets. I need to add a widget that is 100% the width of the page and above the post title and sidebar. I would also love to have this just on my homepage.

    Any help you can give me is very much appreciated becuase I have been playing around with this for hours with no breakthrough at all. Even if I know how to add a html table with text in it instead of a widget would help me because I would only need to change the text in it once.

    Thanks for any help you can give me Pascal,
