Thank You needed this very badly, had to remove VBPortal because it wouldnt work right for me with 3.7 gold.
One question, this is only showing in my default style. How would I make it work in other styles?


I guess it depends on the style, I see it on some and on some pages but not all. Thats ok I only show banners to unregistered and new members anyway. I will just make it so they cant change styles until they reach the post limit that they would no longer see banners.

I have placed the banners folder as such: /public_html/forums/cyb_banners/

So when I add a banner, the banner path that I put in the banner field is cyb_banners/logo.png.

The logo shows on all my pages except the vbadvanced_cmps home page. If I place a second cyb_banners folder in the root, it works; but there should be a way to have just the one folder I would think. Is there a setting I am missing?

I'm getting a Security Token error like some other people have had problems with regarding other versions of vBulletin. Anyone else having this issue (or) have an idea on what I can do?

I've uninstalled the previous versions of the banner rotator addon and reinstalled with the same issue. I go into 'Manager Banners' from the drop down and input the data that is needed, click 'Go' and it comes up with the security token issue.

Thanks,

Nick

Cyb, I had posted in the old vb3.6 thread, but never got an answer.

I really like your banner mod, and would like to include it in an external page from vB. I was curious what all code I needed to include in my php page in order to access the "$cyb_flashimagebanners" variable.

Okay, 2 issues I have found...

I managed to get the banners added by manually putting in the token code, but I can't make banners active/inactive from the manage screen.

Secondly, the banners do not have a hyperlink @ the top of the page. Any insight?

Thanks.
