You could do a str_replace for whatever is at the bottom of the footer. (You know there is an ad_location there, right? You could just use that, I think.)

If I post some CSS and don't say where it goes, put it in the additional.css template.

I tried...

$ad_location[ad_footer_end] .= 'this insert text fail';

And the article is about fech template to insert in other or add var manually. Sorry if I'm wrong, but it still a little hard for me yet.

I'm trying to do this too. For the life of me, I can't understand why it is so hard to do. Or why it's so hard to get a straight answer. If someone knows how to do this, then there should be a specific and to the point article on how to append text to the footer without using a template.

Bumping this because I know I've googled/searched for this a bunch of times and always see this unanswered question.

Follow the instructions the op mentions but use the hook: cache_templates instead and it's working for me. On parse_templates I'd get an error.
