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.

- 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.

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.

If someone would like to offer a vBulletin admin and FTP login for a vBSEO forum, I'll see about fixing it again.

I'm sure I put everything in the right directory... I don't see why I would still be getting the global.php issue. Anybody else had trouble with this?

Hmm, run into a little problem. I can't get it to add an ad to where I would like it.

What i want is to left justify my logo and then have an ad box right justified. I can't seem to get it to put anything in that area.

Style = Blue Web2.0 and using VB's built in google ads option.

Any help? I tried $ad_location[logo.gif] and $template_hook[logo.gif] (thinking this would make it search for my logo.gif file and place it directly after it, didn't work.

I'm getting:
Fatal error: Call to undefined method vbam::assignsharing() in /home/webhosti/public_html/includes/vbam_functions.php on line 327

Searched all of the files, and can't find said function.
Even tried redownloading the package from here, and reuploading.. no luck.

Any ideas?

What is the current issue some people are having with VBSEO? Im just planning on installing it but maybe i do not need to wait for the fixes if I will not use the features of advertisement that cause the problem with vbseo.

HHm, just installed postbit/threadbit advertising? I used to the after first of last post option but I do not see it...


Ok, taking a more detailed look, it seems that Vb ad management 4 has been broken down into 2 different mods. (VB ad management 5 and forum ad management) also some featured like e-mail ads overlap on both version. Another great feature is now missing (Display advertisement after last post on a page). Why has this been separated into 2 mods?

Will I still be able to use the VBads 4 on 3.8.2? That version has all the features i need since I do not use adsharing. Also, I have purchased the brand free version for VBadm 5, will I be able to use the BF version on VBadm 4?

Please let me know since I can't get my forum going until I fix this problem.
