The second post is advertising
Mod Version: 2.0.9, by Asterix_ita (Coder) Asterix_ita is offline

vB Version: 4.2.0 Rating: (44 votes - 4.86 average) Installs: 384
Released: 07 Apr 2010 Last Update: 17 Jul 2012 Downloads: 2559
Not Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template Translations  

I know that there are many addons but I like the special needs, sorry for my bad English

With this addon the second post is not necessarily a post Google Adsense ADS as to release the users was chosen to allow free insertion of HTML Ads.

The addon has the following functions:

1) automatically uses the style of postboard (postbit o postbit_legacy)
2) it is possible to exclude some forum posts from viewing ads
3) it is possible to exclude some groups of users from viewing post ads
4) it is possible to exclude some discussions based on prefix
5) it is possible to customize the user profile virtual ads - nickname and avatar
(usertitle Location - Join Date ecc. need to modify the phrase)

I hope it will be useful to some of you.


Regards

Could be, but in our opinion and the way most add-mods that we currently use treat UserGroup inclusion or exclusion, is when you select a group to exclude, it should not also require the us to select ALL other secondary groups that may be involved. The one selection should suffice.

For example, I want to exclude Admins, but with this mod, unless I also exclude other secondary UserGroups that Admins belong to, then the result of just excluding anyone belonging to the single Admin usergroup on its own is pointless and it doesn't work because the mod wants ALL of them checked or unchecked.

Many sites use secondary usergroups to identify things like contributing members etc, so their use that way conflicts with how this mod is coded.

Anyway, again... nice effort on behalf of the coder and we appreciate his work, but for us it won't work without a more traditional approach to handling user group exclusions.

Regards,
Doug

Hello

maybe I did not understand the problem, due to my bad English

it should not also require the us to select ALL other secondary groups that may be involved
does not require the selection of others.

I have excluded the admin group.
my account have as primary group admin
as secondary staff (not excluded)

and the ads do not see


I have change excluded staff group
my account have as primary group admin (not excluded)
as secondary staff

and the ads do not see it properly


the instruction I used to check the group is as follows:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

I feel the same used in other addon, I can signal an addon that verifies


thanks

My apologies as I only speak English, but let's try this ...

You have an option that says:

Select the Usergroup to be excluded from ads second post.

If I check ALL the boxes but NOT the one that says Administrator, then according to your option, the Administrator group ONLY should be able to view the ads.

On our site, any member who belongs to the group Administrator DOES NOT SEE ads. They do not see ads because an Administrator on our site also belongs to other user groups as well, which are checked. So, because those other user groups are checked and kind of process logic you're using, it just doesn't work for us...

Thanks for your efforts ...

Rergards,
Doug

certainly, if the administrator is not covered by other groups with the restriction, the addon follow the stricter rules

in your case probably should create a group no-ads, exclude this, and assigned to admin the secondary group no-ads

It would be easier to have the check box group option changed to be:

Select the Usergroup to be INCLUDED (permitted) to view ads second post.

Then, only members belonging to whatever usergroup is checked would see the ads.

Solves the problem for us ...

Doug

hi
should be sufficient to make this

admincp ->Plugins & Products ->Plugin Manager search Second Post ADS (press edit)

seach this code


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

change to


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Search this phrase
  • $vbphrase[setting_ads_ct_groups_title] on english traslate set: Select the Usergroup to be INCLUDED (permitted)
  • $vbphrase[setting_ads_ct_groups_desc] on english traslate set: only groups check show the second post ads

let me know if it works

Regards,

Asterix

hi

I checked quickly, your request requires the variation of one plugin and one or two template

admincp ->Plugins & Products ->Plugin Manager search Second Post ADS (press edit)

seach this code


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

replace with

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Search postbit or postbit_legacy template and add on top this {vb:raw ctads.template}

I have not tested but should work

Regards
Asterix

Nice, nice nice!! Worked.

This will help a lot, because the human eye looks first at the first content in the screen.

Thank you!

PD: It's appearing "0 0 0" before the ads

example

Worked perfect ....

Ads ONLY appear for selected usergroup membership.

Thank you very much for the customization ....

Can I assume the Forum Exclude can be reversed in a similar way?

Regards,
Doug

Thanks ..

So, I changed this:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

to this:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

... which should make the mod only INCLUDE any forums checked in either place?

Thanks ..

Regards,
Doug

the change applied says: in all forums that are not reported here denies viewing

I sincerely leave ads in all forums and select the excluded, that variable should act on the second ads.

Warning:

All the plugin code is linked and changing one part may create problems in other options

Here's an odd request, but feedback with advice from anyone would be appreciated ...

If I wanted to execute the following conditional so that this excellent mod ONLY displayed the ads on the second post under those conditions specified, where in the plugins would I put it? I've tried everywhere including the template and it always seems to still interact with the mod's own settings, or prevents elements of the postbit_legacy bottom bar from displaying properly.


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Would appreciate any advice ...

Regards,
Doug
