UKBL ~ Rotation Iframe adverts


Now you can add timed rotational adverts 468 x 60 Banners or any other size you want, anywhere on your forums, You can add it in more than one template and have as many different rotating ads as you want.



This hack works in two parts, some of the code is written by Dyamic Drive so please keep the credits intact if you use.

Installation

1. Download the iframeads.zip

2. Firstly open the advertiser.txt file in notepad and find the following


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

Then change My forum url for yours and also the size of the ads that you'll be showing (I've shown it in red)

Thats all you need to do on that file so now save your edits and open the adverts.htm file in notepad.

You'll see the first part of the code is like this

The only bit you need to change is the very begining


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

This is the delay for each ad, if you want to change the time that each add shows edit the Var delay, so if you wanted each ad to show for 3 seconds, you'd change this value to 3000

now we come to the addition of the Advertising banners.

First you need to do a little bit of work, making each banner clickable and pointing to an url, so for this we'll use a simple bit of code below

Its really easy, You just add the url to the front of the code and the Image url goes in the second part, Do that for all your adverts and you should get something like this...

Notice two additions to the code also, First is the target="_blank" this makes sure that the ad opens up in a new window, otherwise we'll have the url opening in a 468x60 window, Not good at all, so make sure this remains, after each url

Secondly, we have added border=0 to the end of the Image url, This prevents a url border from showing, so make sure this is added to each advert code.

Once you've made all your ads clickable then ad them to the end of the adverts.htm code like my example below

I've only shown 4 adverts but if you add another block befor the end </div> like below, you'll be able to add unlimited ads

Thats its, just save the file and we're ready to upload.

A quick tip to see if your adverts.htm file is working, just click on it in your desktop and you'll see your ads rotating

Now, for the uploads

Firstly, The adverts.htm file which you've just added your ads to, need to go into the forum root directory, once uploaded you can test it by going to http://yourforum.com/adverts.htm

You should see your banners rotating, if so then alls well

Next we need to go to our admin cp and in your styles header, we need to add the small call up file which we saved as advertiser.txt. So open up this file again in notepad and copy and paste to the end of your styles Header.

Now when you go to your forum you should see your ads rotating nicely.

You can be more adventurous and add the call up code to any template you want, each time your adds will show anywhere in your forums, You can of course duplicate the code and with an additional .htm code on your forums root, you'll be able to have more banners showing, different sizes etc..

Hope you enjoy this simple addition

If you click Install then i'll support you 100%


If you've installed this on your site, drop me a PM and i'll add it to the Live Demo at the begining of this post

This looks like something that I'll be all over soon!

I've got a few modifications (and uninstallation of others) to do before I get to this one. But, it's on my list
