  • Advert System?

    Hi just out of curiosity, i could be wrong but does vb 3.7.3 have an advertising system as i think i could recollect something about "ads" vaguely..

    Any heads up would be great, cheers

    It has ad spaces in the templates but no native ad management system. You can use the templates to implement ads fairly easily with whatever system you decide to use, though. phpAds/OpenX is a popular one.

      One common way to place ads is by using the appropriate Ad Location Templates:

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

      You can also use template conditionals to ensure that ads only show up in specific forms or forum specific usergroups. Here is the online documentation for using template conditionals:

          Ads after the first post in a thread can be done with entering stuff in the Template ad_showthread_firstpost
          If you for example want to show ads after 3 posts in a thread you have to do it with a conditional and add the code add the end of postbit/postbit_legacy template.

          Here I found a good example thread http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...light=register
