I haven't tested it on 3.5, but it should work fine. Only one way to find out. Let me know if it does work and I'll post it in the 3.5 section too.

Looks nice. I'll check it out now.

Edit: Seems to work fine. Tested with 3.6.3.

Only downsides I see are 1) it doesn't use ajax so when quick replying the user will have to hit refresh to see the advertisement and 2) You can only add one advert.

It would be nice to be able to chose from different advertisements or simply have an x number of adverts you can add, say 10, and then have it chose a random advertisement to insert.

Overall it looks great and has a lot of options

1) That hadn't occurred to me, I'll look into fixing that as soon as I work out how. Having said that, aside from not feeling "quite right" there's no pressing reason why an ad needs to be AJAXed with QR so I might leave it as it is.
2) It was really geared around something like Adsense where rotation is handled remotely but I'm open to allowing more in the future.

Yes, I'm seeing a pattern emerging here!

My intention is to expand the existing functionality to other areas of the forum outside the postbit in the next version - navbar, footer, threadbit, forumbit - plus a couple of minor extra features.

Then in the version after that I will have a look at rotations.

Not sure if it's something you'll agree too, but if you could expand that list to include some of the more used hacks like vBa, vBgallery and LDM that would be cool

(I know that navbar and footer might well cover them, its more a case of just checking that they work with them )
