Innovative Ads After First Post

By:


I decided to make this while creating another modification as I have seen this requested many times, I Google'd it finding details on what template to edit plus I searched here on vbulletin.org and only found old "modifications" which were actually just tutorials and none were actual products that did most of the work for you .

Description:

Ad after first post on very page or as some describe it, Ad after first post in a thread - This modification places two ads in a post like container below the first post on every page in a thread. Fully customizable to allow all sorts of ad codes such as Google Adsense, OpenX Ads, and various others along with the possibility for the user to design his own images and link them to the appropriate content. Users can also customize CSS or remove the DIV codes to use show only one ad or any sort of advertisement and display any form of content other than ads!

  • More information on vB4 Conditionals can be found here: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=231525 Special thanks should go to BBR-APBT for taking the time to write that article.
Features:
  • Enable or Disable via Settings in vBulletin Options.
  • Fully Customizable.
  • Auto-template.

Required Changes:
(Manual i.e. "To Do")
  • Edit the new template postbit_legacy_ads_after_firstpost and simply add in your scripts or codes to show them which is very simple as I included commented out code to show you exactly where to place it. *This shows in Postbit AND Postbit_Legacy depending on what you have enabled.
(Optional i.e. If you need to adjust the css to make it match your style better if using a custom Fixed width etc.)
  • Edit the new template adsafterfirstpost.css and adjust the css as desired!

(Automatic)
  • Templates to add: 2 ('postbit_legacy_ads_after_firstpost','adsafterfirstpost.css')
  • Phrases to add: 3

Difficulty:
Easy, Time to install: Around 1 Minute - Installer is included simply import the product;
AdminCP > Plugins & Products > Manage Products > *Now click the [ADD/IMPORT PRODUCT] link to import from your computer (download below). Adding in your own codes and customizing if you see fit takes a few more minutes.

History:
8.24.2010: Version 1.0 Created

IMPORTANT:
In the postbit_legacy_ads_after_firstpost template please find:

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

As you can see I have added in commented code to let you know where your custom ads codes need to be placed, very simple.

*Remember to enable the mod after installing otherwise it won't show!
AdminCP > Settings > Options > Innovative Ads After First Post and set to Yes.

*Attention- Please view the first page as the 2nd and 3rd (Added: Post #'s 6 & 7 also contain info on how to customize!) posts were reserved and contain additional information to help you customize this in various ways.

What can you expect in the next version?
  • No template edits, Ads codes will be entered into the admin control panel area where the mod is currently enabled/disabled. If you have a custom style CSS changes will still be required if you notice any position issues etc.

You both sound so surprised? Normally it's one quick file edit for the version compatibility however in 4.1 etc something has changed I'll have an update out soon bear with me or not .

And done! Anyone using 4.1+ download the v2 .xml, it is not currentl compatible with 4.2 i.e. it's maxed out currently at 4.1.9 however once 4.2 comes out I'll update it then.

Sincerely,

Mike

In CSS Templates find the template adsafterfirstpost.css to adjust the CSS as desired.

*You can fully customize the template to show something other than ads, be creative and post if you have questions!
First off, thank you for taking something that required a whole ton of editing, and simplifying it for us "common folk"

I edited the adsafterfirstpost.css to read:

height: 200px;


rather than 260px, because I love the location and placing, however I would like to make it shorter in display. It hasnt reflected any changes tho, and is still displaying the 260px box/container. Am I doing something wrong?

thanks again!

In there are three definitions related to the height check it out:


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

The innovativeadspan is the "Container" then innovativeadleft and right are for those sides respectively. If you change the left or right height to 200 then also change the innovativeadspan as well however the span should control the overall height regardless simply tinker to see the results but the span is the master value per say .

I tried and tried but to no avail, with editing the css. I was however successful when i edited the postbit_legacy_ads_after_firstpost

the section here:

Originally the height:220px was set to 320px, as well as the margin-top:10px was set to 20px. Either way, that was successful!

Thank you for this awesome addon, and I will be eagerly awaiting the next version with Admin CP editing of the ads! Attachment 127017

Hello developer, this is very important and cool mod.

I just want to ask you, why it is not compatible by default with lasts versions? Because we see mods that works with a lot of versions in the future and well looks like each new version break this mod.

Thank you for your feedback

This is supposed to be default functionality, last time I checked it was still not working i.e. a bug so I added a version dependency to the code. When it's fixed this mod will no longer be required and some max out the version simply not knowing what's on the way... I hope those making modifications in regards to the editor are not as a change is in store there as well .

This product is great but it seems is appearing for registered users and me as administrator also. Shouldn't be seen only by visitors /unregistered?

Thank you!

Very nice!! Thanks a ton, I really like this.

I changed the height as mentioned above, and changed the margin to a 10px 10px 10px 10px instead of just the 20px top and I really think it looks great!
