Hi Fillip

thank you for the fast reply.

I just have banners that are already paid for that I want to add manually. Can I do this? They paid a year in advance before this software.

I defined the banner space but don't know where to upload the banner or insert a link to where the banner is on my server

I hope this helps

Ok so I figured out to add them manually but not sure how to get them to rotate. If I just use the code example ( <a href="http://cdmagurus.com" target="_blank"> <img src="http://gurus-group.com/images/sig.jpg"></a>)

but it just stacked them on top of each other. How do I get them to randomly rotate?

Thanks for the help

I have to agree with the others. The lack of suppprt and or manual I will be removing this from my forum. My question is very simple and easy to answer.

You need a manual for your mods. You would make get people to the pro versions for sure

Thanks

I must say, they give much faster and better support on their site, which is actually just fine (at least for me).

Even though I must admit they didn't solved some bugs they recognized as bugs, even in pro versions (there's bug that affects only two of their pro versions, if you have only version, it doesn't matter, so you can say that they give much more support to their free products than to their pro versions).

But, all in all, it's much better support than I received for my other pro versions bought from other people. And I must say, all critical problems are always solved.

Pro version and payment options

I just got the pro version, is there a way to do a custom mod where payment gateway can offer other options like coingate so I can take bitcoin payments? Alot of people are going the cryptocurrency route now and not to much Fiat options anymore. Since this is a crypto forum I have I will be shot to offer any other payment and to have it built in would be nice.

Before I say anything else, I'll need to ask that for future queries, could you please post in our Pro support forums? We do not handle support queries for the Pro version here @ vBulletin.org, since only the Lite version is available here.

Thanks!

Anyway, this mod supports vBulletin's built-in Payment API system so if you already have such payment options for things like paid subscriptions, no further work is needed

There are a few plug ins for Bitcoin. I do not know how good they are, I haven't used them.
