What is DragonByte Forum Ads?
DragonByte Forum Ads is an advanced advertising solution that allows you to easily show visitors you have advertisements available, offer multiple ad campaign options including banners, keywords and more and maximise the revenue potential of your community. Full PayPal integration and automated features such as deactivating expired ad campaigns allows you to make money without expending extra effort.

Fully integrated with vBulletin's "Advertising" page, this mod allows you to make use of vBulletin's powerful advertisement criteria, without having to manually accept payments & manually add the ad code.

DragonByte Forum Ads allows you to offer your ad space on the forums at a price, letting potential advertisers submit their advertisements for consideration before they are asked to pay.

This does not guarantee the mod is error free on PHP 5.4, but it will take care of the reported errors. Thank you all for your reports

DBTech,

Since this integrates into the options you have automatically with vbulletin, then that means a potential advertiser can choose all the same spaces, correct?

That's correct

If you set up banner spaces on all the locations vBulletin offers advertising space, they will be able to choose between them when purchasing ads

Yeah, I was just going through the settings.

It isn't allowing me to add a currency. The other settings pages all show like a default vbulletin settings page. The currency one is showing a white background with all options and text to the left. Is that normal?

If so, would you mind telling me what to input for US currency $?

Also, I have a question. I realize this may not be able to work with Google Adsense, but if I put the adsense code in the vbulletin ad templates that comes default, and then use this mod for paid advertisers, will the two conflict with one another?

Has anyone experienced this, and if so, can you tell me how you stopped it?

There will be no conflicts You should integrate your AdSense account with vB, rather than modifying the ad templates manually, that way you can be sure.

I'd need FTP and AdminCP access in order to look into that further.
