How to add a Global Disclosure in All Posts

If you are not sure which posts you have inserted affiliate links or other information from which you’re earning money, probably it’s a good idea to add a disclosure in all your blog posts.

You can do that easily using the option located in the Theme Options > Single Post Options:

In the above option, you can insert a short text which will appear at the beginning of all posts, below the date. Some HTML code is allowed, so you can also insert a link to a page with your full disclosure.

If you prefer to have more control, there is also a widget area located at the top of posts in the new version. The widget area is named Single Posts (before content), and you can insert in it any widget or shortcode you want:

On wordpress.org you can also search for “affiliate disclosure” and you can find some plugins which include more features for adding your affiliate disclosure.

Keep also in mind that if you edit a reusable block in a post, this block will be updated in other posts.
