Features include global settings, advertisements allowing template conditionals, ad sharing and ad revenue sharing, timed advertisements, preset popular ad locations and functions such as sponsors, additional custom ad locations, random and static advertisements and its all very easy to use. You can use it for ordinary ads like adsense, banner rotations, or any content at all as well as using it to manage ads outside your forum too.

You can read in more detail about these and other features in the manual, which also contains some helpful notes and instructions, as well as the installation and upgrade instructions

If you are using autoinsertion and were using vB Ad Management before version 4.00, you will need to remove your old template edits or advertisements will appear multiple times. Just reverse the old instructions below.

* Paste $forumbit_advertisement at the bottom of your forumhome_forumbit_level1_post and forumhome_forumbit_level2_post templates.
* Paste $threadbit_advertisement at the bottom of your threadbit template.
* Paste $footer_advertisement at the top of your footer template.
* Find $spacer_close in your footer template and below it paste $rightcolumn_advertisement.

Just for people's notice, it's against google's policy to have adsense look like a post.

+1 For the random adverts. I would LOVE to be able to set certain ads for certain forums. Ill just have to tinker with the code to see if I can do it. Nice mod and looking forward to more enhancements.

Awesome!. Flagged for later install.
Same comments as everyone else. rotating ads would be awesome and forum sensitive ads.

Thanks for taking the time to create this!

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

That has been debated elsewhere here if you search and some people have gotten written permission from Google to do that. Whether or not they had the Premium Adsense account I don't know.

Google's TOS states you shouldn't disguise your advertisements as content, which is not the same as giving them the same appearance as a post. They're very clearly labelled as advertisments in the code and not at all disguised as content, just stylised. Besides which I deliberately left out all the other paraphenalia (fake IP icon, report post, date/time etc) to remove ambiguity.

At any rate, just as it says when you're configuring that option in the mod you shouldn't enable that option unless you're sure it doesn't break TOS. It's up to the individual to ensure it doesn't, especially since it may be used for programmes other than Adsense.

No, just styled. You enter an optional avatar via the Ad Management CP and the "username" is just the title of your board.

Great hack. I had another version of this but it stopped the Multi Quote from working when using Adsense ads. This works fine with the adsense and Multiquote .

/me installs.

This is a great little hack! Thanks!

You are not violating Google Adsense rules for making it look like a post (unless you select that option), but you may get introuble for having "Sponsored Links" in the title. This is from the Google FAQ:

Can I recommend referral products to my users?

Sure - you're welcome to endorse or recommend the products you're referring on your site. However, our program policies don't permit you to encourage clicks on or draw unnatural attention to the referral units you're displaying on your site.

More specifically, it's acceptable to use language such as "I use AdSense and recommend it to monetize your website." However, please avoid using language such as "Click here," "Visit these links to support our site," or other similar language.
And this is directly from the rules:

Web pages may not include incentives of any kind for users to click on ads. This includes encouraging users to click on the ads or to visit the advertisers' sites as well as drawing any undue attention to the ads. For example, your site cannot contain phrases such as "click here," "support us," "visit these links," or other similar language that could apply to any ad, regardless of content. These activities are strictly prohibited in order to avoid potential inflation of advertiser costs.
I would suggest allowing people to type in their own words or leave it blank from the ACP. Just my thoughts!
