    Paste this code using a text editor like Notepad++ at the end of your child themes functions.php file:

    My child themes funtions.php file in the wp-content in the cpanel of my service provider (hostgator) has option of using code editor. Can Iuse this code editor instead of using text editor like Notepad++

    I have understood following:

    Step 1: Copy this code from your reply above:

    /** Register new widget & hook widget after title single posts*/
    genesis_register_sidebar( array(
    'id' => 'custom-widget',
    'name' => __( 'Custom Widget', 'genesis' ),
    'description' => __( 'Custom Widget Area', 'childtheme' ),
    ) );
    /**
    * @author Brad Dalton - WP Sites

    * @link http://wpsites.net/
    */
    function custom_widget() {
    	if ( is_single() ) {
    echo '<div id="custom-widget">';
    dynamic_sidebar( 'custom-widget' );
    echo '</div><!-- end #custom-widget -->';
    }
    }
    add_action( 'genesis_after_post_title', 'custom_widget',15 );
    
    Step 2: Go to wp-content in mt c-panel
    
    Step 3: Open functions.php file of my child theme.
    
    Step4: Paste the above copied code at the end of functions.php file
    
    Are the above steps OK.

    Yes Renu. You can use the built in cPanel editor.

    Which option is best? If you want to use a Adsense plugin then you’ll need to add the widget.

    If you want to add the Adsense code directly without using a plugin, then i suggest the custom function which i have already provided in your other thread.

    Using Simple hooks plugin isn’t really the best because you might need to add other custom functions to the same hook which will make it messy.

    Using custom functions in your child theme is the best method.

    Suggestion. If you plan on learning about custom coding, please install WordPress locally so you can test the code and the result without having to worry about messing up your live site.

    Use instantwp.com for Windows or MAMP for Mac.
