    save/copy your script.....Try creating a new ad instead of the same block. Just make a new one, it worked for me.

    Anyhow, what could have gotten screwed up here? The ad code is still in the advertising area, just no ads.
    Try editing each Ad then re-save them, this should fix the problem when upgrading from 4.0.0 to 4.0.1

    Which code do you need help with?

    I do have a couple questions for you. Since I want my banner in the same location as yours. The JS portion is not so important to me, the placement is though.

    <div id="ad_global_below_navbar">

    That DIV tag was added? I can't seem to figure out which template you would put it in and also under/above which line of code would be helpful.
    I just noticed my above post does not include the full code. I use the "Below Navbar Ad" block.

    Go here and see the complete code for rotating ads: http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showt...rum-Side-Block

    Let me know if it works for you?

    Do not check any condition, otherwise it won't work. Already report as a bug.

    There are mods for prior versions of vB that also do ad rotation. I was hoping some code could shortcut this for me. I have no problem setting up OpenX, but have managed with previous versions of VB to function without.

    Peace,.

    i think there need to be an important clarification on what the ad mod of vb is.. its not a advertising management tool, its an ad placement tool.
    you still need something like openx to setup, and manage and rotate your advertisements.. what the vB part lets you do is place these ads into your site without having to do template edits.

    All right. The ads work fine. But is there a code that allows for them to rotate, or do I need OpenX or an Ad Rotator product (when a 4.0 compatible version is out). What's the story?

    I tried some "array" code from the beta forums that didn't function.

    Peace,
    Gene

    I understand how to set it up, but can't you just put in your own HTML in the html box, as in html to an uploaded banner ?

    I can't see why this wouldn't work, but it doesn't..

    I don't want them to rotate, I just want to set a banner to show up under a set forum when any member is viewing that forum.

    I've tried it but nothing is displayed ?

    Can someone give me a sample of the code needed in the html box..

    Thanks in advance

    <div><a name="top" href="forum.php" class="logo-image"><A HREF="INSERTWEBSITEYOUWANTTOLINKTO" target="_blank"> <img src="/images/ads/INSERTBANNERNAMEHERE" HEIGHT=80 WIDTH=900
    HSPACE=420 ALIGN=LEFT> </a></div>

    I'm a complete newbie when it comes to this, I just hunted and pecked at it, and finally found code (copy/paste) that worked. I'm sure it could be refined by the experts, but I'm simply learning as I go along.

    sly can you post screen shots and your exact code? It works great for me, I'm sure its just something you overlooked. I do know if the code isn't correct, for example the exact path to the banner image, nothing displays. Not saying that's your problem, but maybe a second set of eyes can help here.
