I want to add sidebar ads to my mediawiki installation. I am planning on making direct advertisement deals, as opposed to using the built-in adsense/bidvertiser functionality. How do I put the ads in my sidebar?

I'm not sure why this was closed as "asking for recommendations", given that you explicitly say that you want to implement the ads yourself. Still, you question is kind of vague, but the general solution to "How do I add things to the sidebar?" is to use a SkinBuildSidebar hook. – Ilmari Karonen Aug 22 '13 at 15:48
The wording before I edited the question probably made it sound like I was looking for recommendations, but this link seems to solve my needs. Thanks! – Davidos Aug 23 '13 at 7:32
