Not Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template Additional Files Translations  

This modification allows you to add advertisements to your vBulletin software. It's very easy to use, very quick and allows almost unlimited customisation. There is no restriction regarding the content you can use. Adsense, images, flash, plain text and you can use template conditionals and phrases as well. It will put anything, anywhere. Just about.

Features:
- Timed ads.
- Self-refreshing ads.
- Ad rotations.
- Ads using conditionals, phrases and templates.
- Ad sharing.
- Default ad blocks (typical ad block screenshot attached) for all the most popular locations plus another 25 custom blocks.
- Default ad blocks for some of the most popular alternative formats; columns, full-page, sponsors.
- Ads for distributed content (emails and feeds).
- Instant previews before publishing.
- No template edits necessary.
- Compatibility with external pages and software.
- Appearance blending to make your ads look like part of your vBulletin templates.
- Alter hyperlinks to include your referral codes.
- Further details in the manual.

For software-specific management (i.e. threads on a forum, comments on a blog) and/or ad (revenue) sharing you will additionally need the appropriate module.

Additional modules:
Forum
Blog

This modification is supported with a link back to my homepage in the footer. Unbranded is per vBulletin license to be used with, see here for details.

the path to the images is where ever you are storing images aka
(/images/ads/image1.jpg)
or
"http://domain.com/myimages/imige1.jpg"

It is fairly straight forward

Has anyone had the problem where they installed the software, set their settings, and had no ads show up anywhere? What was the culprit?

In Global settings, you have two choices

Enable advertisements for usergroups:
&
Do NOT enable advertisements for usergroups:

You also have a choice to disable per script, allowing certain pages not to display adverts
Do NOT display advertisements for scripts and software:

There are also conditionals you can use for each add if the global is to restrictive. See Manual under conditionals

Could it be that you had adblock on your browser?

I have one on my firefox, and it doesn't show any of the ads, but the product is working fine.

I thought adblockers only worked on popups and popunders. I'm trying to get ads to show up in my forum's margins. I also tried the feature that subsitutes strings with links in signatures, and that didn't work either. There seems to be something just completely blocking this from working in any way.

BUG:

In Hook private_insertpm_process there must be a Error at creating new Users via AdminCP.

Fatal error: Call to a member function do_affiliates() on a non-object in /XXXXXX/www.politikstube.de/forum/includes/class_dm_user.php(2943) : eval()'d code on line 14
The User is still created but this Database Error appears everytime at creating a new User.

WARNING: I am a relative virgin at this but can reverse engineer stuff I see so use my change with caution.

Key:
Existing code shown for reference point.

Note: I do see the other code in there for the right side banner ad but it just kept pushing that ad to the bottom of the header and never to the right side like I though it should.
edit:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
for 1024x768 screen, just note the limit of 990px width,

for 800x600 , will the limit be 770px width
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
for fluid layout
usually a 'td ..../td' can help or do the css style if preferred incline.

Is that forum add-on needed if you want ads inside of threads? Just upgraded my forum and this mod and the old version had that feature built-in so I'm a little confused.

Since I found no answer, I went ahead and get this to work myself. Here is the step

I created a template module on VBadvanced called adv_portal_sponsor which contains


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

Next, go to VB Ad Management ACP, at the bottom click on Custom
Enter the code for your banner, links, etc...preview and make sure it looks good.

Select yes for Enable custom 1 advertisements?
Set refresh
Set timespan
In Custom 1 target template, select adv_portal_sponsor
Enter $vbam_adcode_custom in the box of custom 1 inclusion.

Save.


A few problem.
The refersh does not seem to work. If i reload the page, then I can see different banners but the banners do not rotate by themselves.
