[LMKWD] Create Your Own Custom Advertising Page
Mod Version: 1.00, by HM666 (Designer) HM666 is offline
Developer Last Online: Apr 2019 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.2.2 Rating: (1 vote - 4.00 average) Installs: 5
Released: 02 Dec 2014 Last Update: Never Downloads: 0
Supported Template Edits Additional Files Translations  

Brought To You By: Len M. Kaiser Web Design
Author: Len M. Kaiser
vBulletin Version: 4.0X (Should pretty much work with all vb versions although this was produced on a vB 4.2.2 site.)
DEMO: Be sure to choose the Default Template. DEMO LINK

Please do not PM me for support. Please click "Install" to get help with your page. Those who wish not to click "Install" will get no support from me.

This little add on is for those who do not have the vBulletin Suite and do not want to be bothered with installing a whole portal for just one advertising page. This mod will help you generate revenue to your website.

Suggestions:

1. You will need some idea about editing HTML & CSS in order for this mod to do you any good. I suggest that if you are not familiar with either language that you look HTML & CSS up on W3Schools to help you edit the template.

2. You install the Rotating Banner System to help you place your ads.

3. Be sure to have some ideas about how you want to do your advertising page before getting started.

This little mod will work for free banners, adsense, affiliates as well as banners you sell space for.

Steps To Create Your Custom Template:

1. Login to your AdminCP.
2. Go to Styles & Templates>Styles Manager & find the skin that you want to add the advertising page to.
3. Click on the drop down on the far right and choose "Add New Template".
4. Place the following information:
----Title Field: custom_advertising
----Template:
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

----Editable Regions: All areas that are marked in red are the ones that you can change. The rest do not change it unless you really know what you are doing and are proficient in HTML. Edit the area for your advertising information before you save the template.
5. Click the "Save" button.

Creating The advertise.php File:

1. Open a HTML Editor or Notepad (if in Windows). DO NOT use Word Pad or MS Word!
2. Copy and paste the following code into the page:

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

No changes to that code are needed if you followed everything above for the template.
3. Save the page as "advertise.php".
4. Upload advertise.php to your forum root. Don't know where your forum root is? You can ask your host or find out in your AdminCP by going to Maintenance>View PHP Info - look for DOC_ROOT or DOCUMENT_ROOT for the correct pathway. To upload you will need a FTP client.

Now you should be able to view your advertising page by going to http://yourdomain.com/advertise.php. Obviously you will replace "yourdomain" with your domain.

Len, is there a reason you did not make this into a mod, instead of a template edit?

Nevermind, I see the end user would have to do template editing anyway, to add the advertising code.

The main reason is I'm not well versed in php code just yet. I hand code HTML & CSS, but programming languages I have not done just yet. I know enough to edit them and make changes and sometimes fix them, but other than that it would make a better template...for now lol.

Also you are right there would be edits anyways. Of course if I had the knowledge to create the templates within a product then that most likely would work, but that might be awhile.

I was not able to find that post you referred to and sometimes its easier for some people to see it as the page they want rather than incorporate their own stuff especially if they are not a coding guru lol.

Gotcha. That's what I thought.

I'm curious, do you have any example advertising pages we could see?

Just the demo link that is in the first post. You should be able to see it. If not let me know. I have not created an advertising page that is live and used for this template if that is what you are asking. But the template makes it where you can pretty much style it how you want using html & css.

Same was as described above just for each page you need to change the file name that you upload, the template name & the PHP file to match for the new page.

Parts you would need to change in the PHP file are:


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


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


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


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

Replace yourfilename with the name of the new file you are creating. Make sure you replace all those instances with it and that you use the smae name in each place.
