Awesome! This product worked fine for forum graphical ads, but I had been struggling with getting text-only ads to display on FORUMDISPLAY and had tried just about everything I was capable of. For text ads, it would only display "Sponsored by" and then no link, no text, no nothing.

Your fix posted two above this did the trick and resolved all issues. Thanks so much for posting this!!

I don't have this version installed, but in the last version it used to be where you would go to vBulletin Options >> vB.Sponsor.settings and then remove the info from the "Sponsor Text" field.
