- more

If you need custom version of this hack, pls contact me.

:::::UPDATE:::::
The product xml above will add 2 plugins and the ads stays fixed under navbar. This, however, may not be working with some custom skins if navbar template's codebit are changed. To fix that problem, open Banner System plugin (at global_start hook), replace the whole content with:



Code:
---------------
Code is only visible to licensed users, and only when logged into the forums.
---------------



Next step, you'll have to modify some templates in order to display the ads, place this following code:


Code:
---------------
Code is only visible to licensed users, and only when logged into the forums.
---------------


anywhere you want to show the ads.
If you want to show the ads globally on your forums, put that code in either header or navbar or footer template.

To enable/disable or change other settings of Banner System: vBulletin Options -> Banner System Settings
- Banner System Mode: yes = enable, no = disable
- Show Banners to Logged In Users: yes = everyone (including logged in users), no = only guests
- Ads In New Window: yes = open in new window, no = open in same window

Great I had one for 3.07 and have been looking for something like this. Quick question, are the banners linked to the advertiser or are they just images that rotate? Asking because I really need something that links to the sponsor's site. Either way, nice work!

Ahh question, can we put the banner wherever we want or does it just stick it where it sticks it??

06 Jan 2006, 06:07
It stays fixed below navbar, but if you need to put it somewhere else, that would be easy to do too.

Hallo,

ich habe auch installiert aber obwohl im Admin funktioniert, in Hauptseite sehe ich keinen Banner.
Wo mache ich Fehler?

Hasann
06 Jan 2006, 13:51
Hallo akakios,

doch es funktioniert aber du musst nach der installation Erlaubnis geben für die Mitglieder okei?

unter AdminCP> Banner System> Banner Settings> Show Banners to Logged In Users?> Yes und speichern

Akakios
06 Jan 2006, 14:23
Hallo Hasann

leider das hat auch nicht geholfen.
Bei mir steht "You can set whether to show banner ads to logged in users here." und habe ich YES Markieren und gespeichert. Ader trotzdrm erscheint keiner Banner.
Soll ich vielleicht ein "include" oder so was in Template schreiben?
Übrigens, es gibt keine "neue Template" in zip ordner.

I have a problem, when i click the link on my forum home, it doesnt take me to the place. Its an error, 404... IT adds "amp;" to my link

TheAllusionist
08 Jan 2006, 07:06
IT would be nice if there was some documentation or a post explaining what the 'call' is named and where it is placed, so we could relocate it as needed. I am not a coder, but I didn't find the code in navbar or forumhome with a cursorary search. It does work on my current theme, but a theme I have in developement has side nav bar and not the horizontal ones on top, hence I thought it would be in the nav bar template. Anyway, if some one could post what I am looking for I imagine I could relocate it! :cool: Thank you for your time.

kadafi_alive
08 Jan 2006, 12:59
I have managed to add it to the top, however, it stays in the middle instead of right aligning. Anyone know how to do that?

I'll write the docs for this later. For those who want to show the ads somewhere else, alter the codes in Banner System plugin.

works fine after you remove the MyISAM etc ...

A few suggestions that would really help boost this package would be:

- Scheduled Banner Expiration (give a start / end date to which the banner is valid)
- Allow the banners to be uploaded to the board into a folder or the db, instead of linking from an external source
- if there is no link for the banner, remove the <a href> and just show it as a normal image. some people just dont have a website to link to and are just interested in showing their banner.

other than that great job! nice package. helps alot.

Nice hack, running smoothly in my forum. Some questions though:

1 - How to modify the plugin so that the banners will be placed to the right of the forum logo? I tried editing the plugin but the best I did was place the banner in the center right below the forum logo. Dunno how to place it beside (to the right of) the forum logo.

2 - When will the phrases be added? I usually get this error (and some other phrase errors) when adding/editing banners:

Could not find phrase 'updated_banner_successfully'.

3 - Is there a way to put a weight on the banners that appear so that Banner 1 for example appears 80% of the time while Banner 2 appears only 20% of the time?

EchoZA
09 Jan 2006, 16:58
O.K. I got access to my site again, went into AdminCP and uninstalled the plugin and then tried again but same error, is there a version of the product-bannersys.xml file without the MyISAM issue? If not what do I need to edit out of the .xml file or add in?

tnguy3n
09 Jan 2006, 17:43
@ futuregizmo: you can manually add the missing phrase to Error Message phrasegroup.

@ EchoZA: pls use the attached product xml to import it. I stripped out the default MyISAM engine.

jmaldo
09 Jan 2006, 20:28
I am also getting the missing phrase error. WHere do i add this?

I had the same thing and was playing around and got it to work, I think I just turned off the logged in users seeing it and turned it back on and did a hard refresh (CTRL + R) and it showed up. Maybe a fluke and combination of things, but that is my recollection of what fixed it. Good luck!

Can you be more specific on this or come up with the docs?

Is it possible to use the ads in more than one place on the forums at a time? I would like to have one below the header and one in the footer.

This addon is meant for unhacked vBulletin product. If you modified the software and don't have the skill & knowledge to adapt it to your forum, hire some coders or ask someone with PHP knowledge to fix that for you. And if you read the 1st post a bit more careful, you'd notice that I didn't check the "Support" tag due to my time restraint; however, I DID try my best to answer some of the questions and patching the bug.


For those who installed this hack and wanted to display the banners somewhere else, pls read this post (http://www.++++++.org/forums/showpost.php?p=1379&postcount=2).

When I try to add banners with a "&", that's not working

Those "&" are usefull for cibleclick and other ads


For this link :
http://***/cibles/banniere/symp.cfm?site_id=***&friend_id=***&banniere_id=***

I have : (not working under Firefox, not tried with IE)
http://***/cibles/banniere/symp.cfm?site_id=***&amp;amp;amp;amp;friend_id=****&amp;amp;amp;amp;&banniere_id=***


Every time I modify the banner link, I have a "amp;" coming behind the "&"

@ Shogo: the hack doesn't support links with parameters atm, but I'll look into when I got time.

Just a couple of quick questions- will this allow me to specify different banner ads in specific forums? If I have several that need to display in only one forum, will they rotate on refresh? If yes to both, this is exactly what I need!

Hi

When I try to add banners with a "&", that's not working
Those "&" are usefull for cibleclick and other ads

Every time I modify the banner link, I have a "amp;" coming behind the "&"
How to fix it?

Thx

Shogo,
I was able to 'fix' this issue by editing the link in my data tables (bannersys_banners) using phpmyadmin.
It doesn't really fix the issue, but it at least lets me serve up the ads properly.

Installed this today on 3.5.4, works great. If only there was support for flash ads though. Also, is there a reason this won't work on my cmps homepage? In the source it just shows up as

Instead of a real banner.

You can use conditional in bannerads template to not display the ads in cmps portal.

Just a note for people having problems with banners justified left when you want another way...if this has already been posted, sorry :p

In the banner system's global start plugin, find the textsearch call (the default is "<!-- / nav buttons bar -->" as mentioned in the hack) find that line in your navbar template and on the line above add an alignment ta, and the close tag on the line below (with a space for the insertion).

Enjoy :)

Preferably to get the banners to show up there too, not just remove the dot. Tried "turning it off" and then on again, I'm assuming you are talking about the disable function in the AdminCP????? but that did nothing, but remove the dot because it disabled the hack.

Flawless install.
And although I have a heavily modded navbar, it installed stock, no need for the plugin edit.

I have one question:

Is it possible to position the ad rotation elsewhere than below the navbar, without too many complicated edits?

Also, for those of you more knowlegeable than I, is there a marked difference between what I get with this hack, as opposed to using another hack that would integrate php adsnew?

Thank you.

If you are running vba CMPS, put the path to banner.php into the footer replacements. You also have to have a valid banner, as the test one doesn't really work too well. So try using one of your own.

2fast4ya

04 Jul 2006, 12:17
It all depends on where you have banner.php and your directory structure. I had to just put "banner.php" into my footer replacements. You may have to put in "/'forumroot'/banner.php"

If you have the banner showing in the footer, then put it in the footer replacements, if in the header, then put it in the header replacements. All this can be done in the AdminCP > vBa CMPS options.

The install went cleanly and I see the Banner thing in the Admin, and adding a banner went smoothly and everything.

But the banners are not showing up on the page, I am a big of a n00b when it comes to mods, so I could really use some help!

You can insert it in the header, Navbar anywhere.

Got this working on CMPS and the Forum Hompage, but the redirects don't work on the Gallery.

Instead of pointing to www.website.com/forum/banner.php
when I click on the ad,
it points to this www.website.com/gallery/banner.php

How do I redirect the link on my galleries page? I have PhotoPost Pro, BTW.

For those using cmps, you need to edit either the Page or the Default Settings for CMPS. In the "Portal Output Global Variables" section, add:

ads

This will load the necessary variables for the banner system.

ckhorne, thanks for that - worked perfectly :)

and thanks for the wonderful Hack tnguy3n :cool:

Thanks - works great.

One thing I would like to see in a future update maybe, is the banner stats. I would like to see how many page impressions the banner got as well as a export link so I can export the banner stats and email it to my advertising client to show him exactly how many page impressions/clicks his banner got for the month etc.

Otherwise really good job!

The $20.00 version has stats. It also supposedly supports Flash, but I've found that the code doesn't support Flash on IE -- just Netscape.

Heres how to show banners within the header of your forums and how to get it to work to show correctly on your CMPS page.

First replace all the content of the Banner System plugin (at global_start hook) with this code below:



Code:
---------------
Code is only visible to licensed users, and only when logged into the forums.
---------------



Then edit your header template and place the following code where you would like your banners to appear.



Code:
---------------
Code is only visible to licensed users, and only when logged into the forums.
---------------



Lastly add banner.php to your Header Replacement settings in your CMPS settings.

Note if you want to place the banners within your footer, replace templatecache value from header to footer, add the code where you want to show your banners, then add banner.php to your Footer Replacement settings.

Thats it! Enjoy.

Also I'm having a problem of my own. The settings to edit banners does not show in the control panel. I only see the settings that you would see under banneradmin.php?do=settings .

If I want to edit my banners I have to manually enter the url to banneradmin.php?do=manage

Seems like the cpnav_bannersystem.xml file isn't working correctly for me. Anyone know how to fix this? I can't get around the problem with entering the urls myself but I rather be able to do it in the admin control panel.

I figured out what my problem was. I have bad eyes, I found where the banners can be edited.

On another note, I noticed that custom user groups the banner appears as a dot (at least for my site). The problem was fixed when I changed the banner links to open in a new window. If anyone is having problems viewing the banners, try changing the links to open in a new window.

Oh and you can see how mine is running at CaliberSRT4.net Forums (http://www.calibersrt4.net)

Is there a way to place the banner in the header area on the right side?

burntire
25 Jul 2006, 04:41
To add in the header to the right

Find

<!-- logo -->
<a name="top"></a>
<table border="0" width="$stylevar[outertablewidth]" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" align="center">
<tr>
<td align="$stylevar[left]"><a href="$vboptions[forumhome].php$session[sessionurl_q]"><img src="$stylevar[titleimage]" border="0" alt="$vboptions[bbtitle]" /></a></td>
<td align="$stylevar[right]">
&nbsp;

Then add


<td align="right" valign="middle" width=100%>
$bannerads</a><br>

Go to your Banner Ad Template and Replace the highlighted color below with the full URL to banner.php

Example <a href="http://www.yoursite.com/forums/banner.php?

<if condition="$vboptions['bannersys_mode']">
<if condition="$bbuserinfo['userid'] == '0'">
<br />
<table class="tborder" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0" align="center">

<td><a href="banner.php?$session[sessionurl]do=redirect&bannerid=$ads[bannerid]" <if condition="$vboptions['bannersys_popup']">target='_blank'</if>><img src="$ads[imgurl]" width="$ads[bwidth]" height="$ads[bheight]" border="0"></a></td>
</td>
</table>
<br />
<else />
<if condition="$vboptions['bannersys_ads2all'] AND $bbuserinfo['userid']">

Below is the code I use in the bannerads template.
Just so we are clear this fixes the problem of the banner ads not redirecting when clicked on if you are using CMPS to create your sites home page.

Ok, im not having a problem with cmps anymore as soon as i added "ads" as a hook good to go.

What the problem is the links are not redirecting to the url, it works in the cp but not on the site.

Cool idea - perhaps you can add onto it more?

$banneradnav , $banneradfooter, $banneradheader

And selectable when you add a banner in the admincp?
