Not Solved footer is gone in my forum

Not Solved
Yesterday I was trying to put some ads in my site in the footer by editing the footer template.
At the very end of the footer template I added Somewhat like this:
<br><a href="http://www.p.......com/vote/?id=.........."><img src="http://www.p.......com/t100.gif" border="0" alt="Click here to Vote!"></a>..............................next ad........................next ad...............</br> 

This code put all the image ads on the same line. For putting the ad in the next line I used this:
<br> .........ad...........</br>

I don't know if this is the right process or not, as i am a noob.

But after adding 3 of them, when i tried to added the 4th one, the editing page became blank & i cannot see or edit anything.

Then i noticed that my whole footer has dissappeared from my forum page.
No mybb copyright, no time, no ads, etc...

Can u guys tell me what's the problem & help me out?

A wise move would be to remove the bit of code that you added just before it broke and see if it all comes back. You probably haven't closed a tag or something but for now, removing the offending code will probably get the footer back.

Oh, I see, no just revert it to default and the default footer template will come back.

Also another note, the correc t break line tag is '<br />' without the quotes. It's not a tag that requires closing.
So remove the bit at the beginning that says '<br>' and change the '</br>''s to '<br />''s.

Hope I helped,

thanks mattr & jlong1. As mattr said i reverted the footer template to default & then placed my ads in a proper way as suggested by jlong1.

But now i have another problem !!

my footer looked like this before :
[Image: Screenshot-footer_before.png]

but now it looks like this :
[Image: screenshot_footer_after.jpg]

i.e., no "TIME" being shown, no theme author's name, etc....

What is the way to solve this problem?
Thanks for all your help & suggestions.....

That's why. I'd advise you to put the ads before:
<hr class="hidden" />

If you put them right at the end, it's not in the container.

Ah, I just realised that reverting it to default will revert it to the MyBB Default, not the Afresh default. Put this code in the footer template to get the actual default for that Afresh theme back:

<div style="overflow:hidden;">
		<div id="debug"><debugstuff></div>
	</div>
	</div>
			<div class="bottommenu">
				<div class="float_right" style="margin-top: -4px;">{$lang_select}</div>
				<div>
					<span class="smalltext"><a href="{$mybb->settings['contactlink']}">{$lang->bottomlinks_contactus}</a><a href="{$mybb->settings['homeurl']}">{$mybb->settings['homename']}</a><a href="#top">{$lang->bottomlinks_returntop}</a><a href="#content">{$lang->bottomlinks_returncontent}</a><a href="<archive_url>">{$lang->bottomlinks_litemode}</a><a href="{$mybb->settings['bburl']}/misc.php?action=syndication">{$lang->bottomlinks_syndication}</a></span>
				</div>
			</div>
		<hr class="hidden" />
			<div id="copyright">
				<span class="float_right">{$lang->welcome_current_time}</span>
