Hi you there. I was looking for a really nice Banner Rotator Mod, but i couldn't find one that had what i need. So i decided to code one. Finished it right now and i'll share with you.

So, what does this hack do?
- This mod allows you to add lots of forum banners.
- The banners will be automatically randomized everytime you reload your forums.

How can i work with it?
- It's all controlable through AdminCP.
- NOT NEEDED ftp access to upload banners.
- You CAN upload banners (jpg, gif & png) through AdminCP.
- You can set a description for individual banners.
- You can edit the description easily and individually.
- You can delete the banners through AdminCP (this function delete the banner from the ftp)
- You can activate/deactivate you banners.
- Deactivated banners remains in the ftp, but will not be shown on forum home.

How can i install? (Time to install: 1 minute if you are fast enough )
- Upload all the files contained in the "upload" folder inside the zip to your forum root directory and CHMOD 77 the folder "/image/banners"
- Install product-brotator.
- Go to your AdminCP > Style Manager > YOUR SKIN > Edit HEADER template and find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

Replace with:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

You can change banner width and height editing the plugin called "Banner Rotator Generator" and changing the values:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

for your own values.

I really hope you enjoy this hack and, please, if you find any kind of bug, report it to me as soon as possible.
And if you have any suggestions, post here.

Thanks you all!

i think you can only have one link for all images, since all images run from one plugin. theres a default code thats normaly on the forum that you have installed it on that brings you back to your main page, so once you click on the banner(s) it takes you back to your forum. i had to fix the code to get mine to rederect back to my forum though.

does this make anysense or help at all ?

i tried :P

can anyone tell me how to align the banners so they're on the right side, not the center?

also, is it possible to have this hack running in two skins at once with different sets of banners? i'm not sure how, if it is.

Thanks for the help anyone who can give it to me!

it would not allow me to upload image/pjpeg when I tried to upload my original banner that I had before I installed this so I added "image/pjpeg" to the list of what was allowed and it's now working fine. Now I have to create a few more banners!

Thanks for this.

banner-_rotator file goes in admincp folder.
cpnav brotator file goes in the xml folder inside the includes folder in your forums directory.
banner folder goes in the images folder.

Good luck.

-- I have also tried uploading to my server and then uploading with all/import product where I also get an error any suggesitons....
