Not Supported Template Edits  

Most advertising companies will ask you not to have their ads on pages without content. This is a problem in vBulletin, because you want to have the ads on as many pages as possible, but you dont want to get banned from the service (i.e. adsense )

The solution is not to try and find places we CAN put the ads, but rather to exclude all the places we would NOT want them. What this hack does is make sure ads do not appear on pages we dont want them to (This includes most hacks which add pages, such as the cyber paypal donation hack, invites hack, etc. Plus, it is quite simple to add any other page you want to the no-no list )

Another thing this hack does is put the ads in a table, to make it look neater. In addition, it gives the members an option to collapse the ads. It will still get you impressions, and it wont be annoying for the user, so its a win-win situation.
------------------------------------------------------------

UPDATE 1.01:
There seemed to have been code which was one style specific (satellite skin spacer) so I replaced it with a <br />. If you had a problem with spaces between the ads table and the navbar and/or forum categories, use this updated code.

------------------------------------------------------------


The following script will work with any type of affiliates, including referencers, search boxes, and links/images.

NOTE: It works best with Leaderboard size advertisements (Approximately 728x90)


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

------------------------------------------------------
This default version of the code will display the ads on every page except the following:

Login Pages
Registry Pages
User CP Pages
Private Messages List Pages
Subscription Payment Pages
Invitations Hack Pages
Members List Page
Online Members Page
Member Pages
Spider Watcher Hack Pages
psiStats Hack Pages
User Profile Page
FAQ Page
Send PM Page
Cyber PayPal Donation Hack Page
Calendar Page
Adding Calendar Events
Moderator Statistics Hack Page
Search Form Page
Gallery Searching Page
Gallery Uploading Page
Error Pages
------------------------------------------------------

NOTE: If you find that the spacing between the table is too big or too little, add/remove the colored <br /> s


If you add a modification that ads another page, add the following in the space below (THIS_SCRIPT == 'CybPayPal') OR


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

So if the php file name is arcade.php, it would look like this:


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

If the hack is an addition to an already existing php file, find the command/script within. For example, if I didn't want ads to show in the new posts list, I couldn't do that using just the file name, because the file name is search, which would in turn remove the ads from every single page that has to do with search. What you need to do is copy the link of the new posts page, and copy the command, which looks like this:


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

So what you need to add in the template would look like this:


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

I recommend using these in the header and/or footer templates. Add this at the lowest place possible in the header, and the highest place possible if in the footer (Right below the copyright notices)


Support is available if needed. You can contact me via MSN at rsx@nerdshack.com, or by email (same address)

Please give feedback!


Thanks & Enjoy!


P.S. THIS MODIFICATION IS COMPATIBLE WITH EVERY VERSION OF VBULLETIN

P.S 2: This is my first mod release so if I did anything wrong don't hurt me. Just tell me what the problem is and I will fix it ASAP :bunny:

Very nice hack, sadly I've already been removed from Adsense because I didn't exclude one of these pages (they didn't say what one); trust me, once you get kicked from Adsense their customer support seems to ignore you

Thanks installed...

What if I wanted to to have it not show in another directory?

ie: I use photopost and I have photopost installed in the http://www.mysite.com/forums/gallery/ directory.

Photopost is using my vb navbar tempate where I have your hack installed. How would I make it so it wouldn't show on http://www.mysite.com/forums/gallery/uploadphoto.php ?

I tried just adding (THIS_SCRIPT == 'uploadphoto') OR in the middle but, that didn't work.

Thanks,
Miguel
