    I remember I once came across a banner rotator that could insert banners between posts automatically so if you have 5 posts in your home page there would be 1 banner in between each post.

    Any one knows which banner rotator plugin has that feature?

    I know I could use OpenX but thats just Overkill for what I need to do here...

    OK since I don't wanna leave this thread without resolution I'll post the solution I found:

    1. Use an overly simplistic banner rotator plugin such as DataFeedr Random Ads V2
    2. Create an adgroup and upload your banners and paste the code in the ad boxes (or just paste your ad-code)
    3. Locate <?php endwhile; ?> in your main index template (index.php) and then add this code:

    <?php if(!$show_ads){ ?>
    Insert Code Here
    <?php $show_ads = 1; } ?>

    VOILA! .. now u have rotating banners after each post or as I'd like to call it...."banners in the very gut of wordpress"

    :)

    PS.

    YES, I could have done it with OpenX but that is Overkill for the thing I am doing...
