UKBL ~ Advertising iFrame on Forum Home

Banners and text links are great, But for real results add an iFrame to your Forums Homepage and make more $$$$$

Made this a few weeks ago for another Admin, Now releasing here for all to share.

Basically its adding an iFrame to the forum home template, allowing admins to display either their affilate websites or even to promote an external website owned by them, either way its a great way to rake in much needed commision payments

Banners and display ads are great but with this advertising iframe you stick the ad right in their faces, let the website make that sale for you.

The Example i'm using makes me 4 for every member that signs up, so by putting it on main view, i'm certainly going to be increasing mycommision payments by 100%

The code is easy to install, and with use of a conditional as an add on you can limit viewing to certain usergroups.

To install:

Download the iframe.zip and edit the code with your details

Remove my details and replace with your own, Thats it

To upload to your site, just go to your

AdminCP > Styles & Templates > Style Manager > YOUR SITES STYLE > Edit Templates > Forum Home Templates > FORUMHOME

Find

$navbar

and below it add the code ;)

<DIV ALIGN=CENTER>
<IFRAME name=stbbox src="http://tradebusiness.at/ukbusinesslive" width="100%" height="200">
<p>Your browser doesn't support frames. Click <a href="http://www.ukbusinesslive.co.uk/forum/index.php" target="_blank">here</a> to view the page.</p>
</IFRAME>
</DIV>



to add a conditional just add

<if condition="is_member_of($vbulletin->userinfo, 1, 2, 3)">

to the front and


</if>


at the end, remember to change the 1, 2, 3 for the number of the usergroup you want to use.

Thats It, Please Click installed if you use ;)
