  • Advertising with banners and text?

    Hi,

    We have a commercial forum which runs off our main commercial site. We want to add some of our banners and links (back to our main site). In the future we may advertise third party companies, but not at the moment.

    Currently our header is a flash header so we don't want to advertise in that space. We feel the best places we can advertise are after the first post and at the bottom of the page and maybe on the right hand side.

    Does vB 3.8 have any of these features?

    Thanks

    The easiest way to do this is to use the Ad Location Templates in the Style Manager:

    Admin CP -> Styles & Templates -> Style Manager -> Edit Templates -> Ad Location Templates

    Edit the appropriate template and add the HTML code you want.

      Thanks, that works great. I have a couple additional questions...

      Can someone advise me on how to modify my html code to make the banner a hyperlink to the sponsor site as well. Below is the html string that works to insert the banner.

      <img src="http://i81.photobucket.com/albums/j214/bdcupp/ohc_468x60_bnr_bord-1.jpg">

      Second question, how can I force the banner to center on the page? It defaults to the left.

        OK, scratch question #1, I got the link working properly!! Still would like to know part #2. When I enter the code below in ad_showthread_firstpost: location, it defaults to the left. Can I force it to the center of the page?
