What does it do?

Features include global settings, advertisements allowing template conditionals, ad sharing and ad revenue sharing, timed advertisements, preset popular ad locations and functions such as sponsors, additional custom ad locations, random and static advertisements and its all very easy to use. You can use it for ordinary ads like adsense, banner rotations, or any content at all as well as using it to manage ads outside your forum too.

You can read in more detail about these and other features in the manual, which also contains some helpful notes and instructions, as well as the installation and upgrade instructions



If you are using autoinsertion and were using vB Ad Management before version 4.00, you will need to remove your old template edits or advertisements will appear multiple times. Just reverse the old instructions below.

Quote:

* Find <!-- post $post[postid] popup menu --> and paste $postbit_advertisement above it in your postbit & postbit_legacy templates.
* Paste $forumbit_advertisement at the bottom of your forumhome_forumbit_level1_post and forumhome_forumbit_level2_post templates.
* Paste $threadbit_advertisement at the bottom of your threadbit template.
* Paste $footer_advertisement at the top of your footer template.
* Find $spacer_close in your footer template and below it paste $rightcolumn_advertisement.
* Find &nbsp; in your header template and replace it with $header_advertisement.
* Find $spacer_open in your header template and below it paste $leftcolumn_advertisement.

I haven't tested it on 3.5, but it should work fine. Only one way to find out. :) Let me know if it does work and I'll post it in the 3.5 section too.

Looks nice. I'll check it out now.

Edit: Seems to work fine. Tested with 3.6.3.

Only downsides I see are 1) it doesn't use ajax so when quick replying the user will have to hit refresh to see the advertisement and 2) You can only add one advert.

It would be nice to be able to chose from different advertisements or simply have an x number of adverts you can add, say 10, and then have it chose a random advertisement to insert.

Overall it looks great and has a lot of options :)

1) That hadn't occurred to me, I'll look into fixing that as soon as I work out how. Having said that, aside from not feeling "quite right" there's no pressing reason why an ad needs to be AJAXed with QR so I might leave it as it is.
2) It was really geared around something like Adsense where rotation is handled remotely but I'm open to allowing more in the future.

Perfect !!! :D

But can we have a Function in the next Update please that let us choose how many different Banners will appear in a Rotation ?

See this : vbBannerRotator

Yes, I'm seeing a pattern emerging here!

My intention is to expand the existing functionality to other areas of the forum outside the postbit in the next version - navbar, footer, threadbit, forumbit - plus a couple of minor extra features.

Then in the version after that I will have a look at rotations. :)

Slave 09 Nov 2006 23:33

Not sure if it's something you'll agree too, but if you could expand that list to include some of the more used hacks like vBa, vBgallery and LDM that would be cool :)

(I know that navbar and footer might well cover them, its more a case of just checking that they work with them :))
