I can't really get it work with the Ad Sharing on POSTBIT. NOTE: This will work on HEADER
Here's what I did:
1. Install V2.1 hack.
2. Make template edit on POSTBIT template.
3. Put my ad code on the VP Options.
4. Tested and it works - NO PROBLEM at all.

Now, when I try Ad Sharing, problems start to show.
These are my steps.
1. Uplaod the V3.1 XML file, thus overwriting the V2.1
2. Make Profile field, named field6.
3. Go to Ad Sharing Option, enter field6 on the Field ID, put my default ad code and enter 90% (really with % sign) for the thread starter.
4. Go to Post, PM and Announcement Option and replace the Static code with #shared#.
Example:
Before (V2.1): <a href="http://mydomain.com">Click This Test Link</a>
With Ad Sharing (Change): <a href="#shared#">Click This Test Link</a>
5. Testing by refreshing the POST, PROBLEMS HERE........... After first post, it only displays the "Sponsred Links" and no ad shown.

ANy suggestions?

Just updated, and my header and footer ads have vanished on all but the main forum index.

Will I do any harm in reverting to 2.1?

The problem is this:

In: vb Ad management Global settings:


Display advertisements in ForumIDs:
Enter the IDs of the forums in which you want to display the advertisements, separated by your delimiter. (i.e. 1|2|3)

If you only want to exclude forums instead of including them, leave this blank to display the advertisement in every forum except those listed below, if any.

This setting does not apply to the header or footer or side columns.


I have this set to one forum number, since all I do is have in line post ads in one forum (forum 9). It looks like this setting is being applied to the header and footer, since the header and footer ads are on for forum 9, the index, and all "other" pages (like calendar and search and so on) but are disabled on all other forum indexes and thread view pages.

Question

Hi,

I am using custom leftcolumn code for my board.
How can I add $leftcolumn_advertisement to left_column (my left column template) instead of the header template?

Kind regards
jluerken

It sounds like I forgot to update the phrase, it didn't seem consistent to not have control over all the advertisements in the same way, so header and footer now use the same rules as all the other ads.

If you want the header & footer to display everywhere but other ads to only apply to one forum, set all ads to display in every forum then alter the template of the ad you only want to apply to forum 9 and surround the entire template with:

I would suggest that if you're not using either the header or footer ads, you paste $header/footer_advertisement into your custom left column template, since both header and footer ads will work anywhere on a page.

Alternatively if this modification fulfils your needs you could simply remove the left column plugin you have now and use this one instead.

Redtyger, thanks for that - but...

I use your software to post an ad and the end of a thread, the one where it looks like it's from a user. So I have enabled ads everywhere and now my headers and footers work. I enable the post at the bottom ad, and they appear everywhere. I put the conditional around the $postbit_advertisment and they all disappear. It's as if it doesn't know which forum the thread is in.

I really liked the way it worked in 2.1 - can I revert without horrible errors?

Ah, for a postbit conditional it would be different, $thread[forumid] or something perhaps, I can't remember.

You can use any version you want without issue.

Is it possible to make it so there is an option that members can choose in their profile or somewhere so that they can choose if the ads will display or not, independent of their usergroup?
