thx - no luck

In the Plugin - Manage Products I am not sure which file was to be uploaded. I have tried it with product-brotator.xml and with brotator.php. (Deleting the previous try and starting over each time.) I don't know where the Manage Products places the actual file, so perhaps that one isn't 777'd and that is the problem.

I have uploaded the files brotator.php and product-brotator.xml into several places in the file manager in the attempt to get it running. Both files are now located at the root-root of the server, one level down in the public_html folder, in public_html/admin (with a number of admin php files,) public_html/admincp (created because it was mentioned in this thread,) public_html/forums/, public_html/images. All are chmod 777. If I figure out which is the working folder/file I'll delete the others.

Appreciate any tips. I look forward to being another happy brotator user.

links for banner

does your banner ad mod allow you to click and link? If so how?

Oh wait I just read that it will be a future feature. Any idea when?

It would be nice to have this mod combined with cyb flash image banner rotator

Admin CP access with link options as opposed to Cyb flash's quick links access (That I was never able to make work)

Hey people. I wanna apologize for leaving the mod unsuported, but i had some problems (well, i cant call it a problem, couse it was a good thing) and didnt have time to login here and help you.

But just to update you all, a new version of this mod will probably come out soon (already vB 3.7 certified ). Therefore i wont be supporting this thread while the new mod is under development.

Hope you all understand
