Not Supported Uses Plugins Template Edits  

I created this simple and easy hack for a rotating banner block. All you have to do is create a template and add a plugin location and your done.

1. Go to your ADMINCP and create a template called "banner" and insert the attacked code:

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

2. Now still in your ADMINCP go to PLUGIN SYSTEM-->ADD NEW PLUGIN
HOOK LOCATION is "global_start"
TITLE is "banner"
PLUGIN PHP CODE:

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

Do not forget to make the plugin active.

3. Now you can go into any template you want and where ever you put the $banner your rotating banners will appear.

4. Most people want to put this in the top right corner of the forums. If this is what where you want it then. go into you ADMINCP templates and into you header:

Find:

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

Under that insert:

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

Now you done. All you have to do is edit your template your created with the links and banners you want to use.

You can add more rotating banners then what is in the code. All you have to do in insert more lines with banners in the right location in the code. That should be self explanatory.

Note:
You can make your link open in a seperate browser window by adding the target='ad' in the line as shown below.

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

I do not see why it wouldn't. Nothing has changed since VB 3.5 that I can see that would keep this from working.

I have to admit though. I no longer use this mode that I created. I have switch to GARS for my banner rotation. It is not free software but it works good for setting the start and stop times that you want each banner to display.
