Hello

This modification adds a so called Wallpaper AD to your forum.
A Wallpaper AD consists of a Leaderboard Banner (728x90px) and a Skyscraper Banner (160x600px) combined into one AD.

vBulletin Wallpaper AD v2.0 was elusively released on AdSenseExperts.com

vBulletin Wallpaper AD v2.0 is a complete code rewrite and
can now be used on a fluid or a fixed width style.

Don't forget to mark as INSTALLED if you use this!

Ok here it goes:

vBulletin Wallpaper Ad v1.01

I have a forum with a fixed width of 1024px that is centered so this modification
is for this kind of setting. I don't know if it will work on non centered forums or
forums with a fluid style. (if you use a fluid style use vBulletin Wallpaper AD v2.0)

in template header find:


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

add BEFORE:


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

in template additional.css add:


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

Like I said, my forum has a fixed width of 1024px.
I have positioned the wallpaper with a 5px space to my forum (see screenshot)

You need to change the CSS Settings according to your Forum width:

.ads_lb_wp_wrapper : 1024px <- Forum width

.ads_lb_wp : 301px <- Forum width + 5px (Space) - 728px (width of the Leaderboard)

.ads_ss_wp_wrapper : 1189px <- Forum width + 5px (Space) + 160px (width of the Skyscraper)

.ads_ss_wp : 1029px <- Forum width + 5px (Space)

It then looks like this:



Feedback and optimisation suggestions are very welcome!

If you installed v1.0 remove the four "z-index:xxx;" lines in your additional css entries for the wallpaper ad.
It works without them but with them you can't click buttons in your header!


Version History:
v1.01: Bug fix in CSS definitions that made it impossible to click on buttons in the header.
v1.0: initial release


Greetings

do you have a fixed forum width and a forum that is centered?
If not you need to change the CSS

But please don't ask me how and what it took me over 10hours to figure out a solution for my forum.

vBulletin Wallpaper AD v2.0 was elusively released on AdSenseExperts.com

vBulletin Wallpaper AD v2.0 is a complete code rewrite!

The beauty of the v2.0 placement in combination with an Ad Server is, that the space
used by the leaderboard at the top of the forum is only filled when an AD is present.
If you don't deliver a Wallpaper then your forum starts at the beginning of the page.
By utilizing an Ad Server you can also use frequency capping which is very often
requested by Advertisers buying Wallpaper Ads because of the high CPM that come
with Wallpapers. Wallpaper prices are very often in the two digit CPM range.

The vBulletin Wallpaper AD v2.0 mod can now be used on a fixed and a fluid style.

I also explained how to set up a wallpaper ad using DFP Small Business as Ad Server.

Enjoy
