What is DragonByte Forum Ads?
DragonByte Forum Ads is an advanced advertising solution that allows you to easily show visitors you have advertisements available, offer multiple ad campaign options including banners, keywords and more and maximise the revenue potential of your community. Full PayPal integration and automated features such as deactivating expired ad campaigns allows you to make money without expending extra effort.

Fully integrated with vBulletin's "Advertising" page, this mod allows you to make use of vBulletin's powerful advertisement criteria, without having to manually accept payments & manually add the ad code.

DragonByte Forum Ads allows you to offer your ad space on the forums at a price, letting potential advertisers submit their advertisements for consideration before they are asked to pay.

So if there aren't problems for this i have to say that it's a really great mod.
You are great.
But i have some questions.

How can i delete some example advertisement tables from "Banner Space Locator"
for example, if i want remove the "Archive page" from advertising, is it possible??

And also is it possible to add some additional place for banners?
for example "after the first post" or after the "4 post" in a thread?



Thanks in advance.

This mod is not the cause of that problem, as this mod does not open any new MySQL queries.

You can simply not add banner spaces for the ad locations you do not wish to serve ads from, and advertises will not be able to buy advertisements there

Not at this time, sorry

What's the point then Fillip? CMS is just so overlooked by forum developers...4.2.3(?) is a publishing suite and all you guys need to get your heads around that...how do I compete with Wordpress sites where developers actually finish their mods...I am very cranky atm.

But then again, if it works seamlessly with the Rotating bannerheads system it could be very handy to just isolate Forum ads...forums are my LEAST interest.

The point is that we made a decision to prioritise the integrity of a forum's Meta Keyword and Meta Descriptions, as these are relevant for SEO.

I would like to remind you that your anger over this unfortunate change does not give you the right to insult ourselves or the IB developers, as we are still human beings. You would not appreciate it if I insulted you over a response like this, as much as it angers me to hear this tone taken, so please do not subject others to what you would not appreciate to receive in return.

I regret that this has upset you, and should I find an alternative solution in the future then I will of course re-activate the CMS integration.

Unfortunately it doesn't work with PayPal subscriptions at this time. Advertisements must be manually renewed via the Client Area.
