Image tags for banners
Hi,

Alex responded to one of my posts and the info seems like it could help me.

I DO NOT have the plugin for advertpro -- rather I have had the system for years now.

Can anyone please give me the code to use <img> tags as Alex suggested I should use to call the banners in my templates??

Please?

Thank you... -Sophia

Hi,

In regards to displaying banners, if you are using the AdvertPRO plugin, then you should just be able to put:

<%Plugins::GForum::AdvertPRO::display_region ('5')%>

in your template for wherever you want to display a banner for region 5. This only works if you have the plugin. If you don't have the plugin, you will need to use <img> tags to load the banenr.

As for the Admin area disappearing, that's very strange. I'd recommend asking AdvertPRO for some quick advice, they are usually very responsive.

Cheers,

Alex

I'm not familiar with AdvertPRO, but do you have a code sample used on one of the other pages? Using something similar in the GForum template should work.

Hi Jag...

Thanks!

Here is the call to the banner system now that I use in all the headers and footers of my site. The system needs 2 calls... code for the top and code for the bottom portion of the code. Code is for the DoubleClick Network banners.

<!--#INCLUDE VIRTUAL="/cgi/advertpro/banners.fpl?region=3&mode=SSI&name=2"-->

Hi Sophia,

I had a quick look through the online AdvertPro manual, and it looks like you are going to need the output of the Perl Code Generator option - in the admin. I recommend trying to contact AdvertPro in order to get them to help you regain access to your admin area; with the generated Perl code it should be very easy to create a GForum global that will do exactly what you need.
