I love to see this mod support SWF files, or even better the ability to use iFrames. Any chance?

Hey Deviation

Just wanted to see if you still have plans to revamp this for the vb 4.x series. This is such an awesome mod I use it on my 3.8 version but would love to my 4.x site

I'll work on automating this in the next release, but this should at least get you guys up & going again.
Hi there! I have the same issue in v3.8.7. but I do not have "Redirect Domain Whitelist" form inside AdminCP. What should I do?

I don't have that option either. Instead, I did the following:

I created a subdir called "redirects" and created redirect pages in there for each forum.

e.g.

Forum 1 advertisers url in the vBSponsors form field is to: /redirects/forum1.htm and THAT file has a redirect in the meta tag like so:


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

The whole forum1.htm file looks like this if you're not sure what you're doing:


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

That works fine - the negative is that the user sees an error message for a few seconds, then it redirects ok to the advertisers site and hopefully they forget about the error message, because it worked

Make a file for every forum. Just hope you don't have 80 forums like me!

Thank you so much for the advice.

I would only add that it might be better to use php for redirection:


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

Why "better"?

Both work, and not everyone knows php!
