Title: Ads not displaying- code attached
Post by: DaveE on August 27, 2009, 08:30:52 am
Can anyone see why this will not display?  Am I missing somethng fundamental here?  All users and guests  have permissions set to see ads.  All links are valid.

Those tags are not placed properly-- those aren't elements.

Try this:

<a href="http://www.alittlebitofengland.es/" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.alittlebitofengland.es/banners/testbanner.jpg" alt="Banner" width="209" height="100" border="0" /></a>

Thanks for replying.

Copied and pasted your version of the code.  It doesn't work either (I did actually do this although I had previously tried several different versions, both with and without the body tags and with different parts grouped within the same element. All worked in IE, Mozilla, Safari, Chrome and Opera but not in SMF).  Have set ads to display on every page just under the menu temporarily, until I can actually get them to display.  I get no error messages, just nothing at all.  I am sure I must be missing something fundamental here with the settings.  Is there something that has to be switched on somewhere to display ads, other than check boxes in the SMFAds module?

Thanks again

Dave :(

Not getting an immense amount of feedback on this one.  Here is all the information I have.

1. Code.  <a href="http://www.alittlebitofengland.es/" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.alittlebitofengland.es/banners/testbanner.jpg" alt="Banner" width="209" height="100" border="0" /></a>

2. Versions.  SMF 1.1.10  SMFAds 2.3

3. Settings.  Type:  HTML
                  Display:  Display ads on every page right below the menu

4. Permissions  Guests: Enable ads checked.
                     Regular Members:  Enable ads checked
                     Global Moderator:  Enable ads checked
                     Senior Moderator:  Enable ads checked

Board permissions all set to Normal.

Please, can anyone tell me why I get nothing, not even an error message or log entry?

@applecheescake, thanks for ur response. That is my issue. I actually want the configured ads in the Ads Manager to rotate between the posts but not working at all.

Waiting to read from you.

It will be better to explain it to me here. I will implement it myself. Thanks.

it's easier for me if i can see it, but ok. basically all you need to do is check that all the coding is similar to that which i posted in my first post on this thread and that all the correct boxes are checked (on my forum they all sit below the menu and at the bottom of the page) also you need to check that the boxes that say "Which boards should this ad display in, Display ads within posts, Display ads after categories" are all blank (this allows them to be shown in all boards) set the "type" dropdown menu to html (default setting) make sure it's named and click save... should be it, job done. if that doesn't work then the only way i can really help you would be to have the ability to see the permissions and advert settings to advise further or you could always email (info in my profile) me the screenshots if you're not comfortable with me having the permissions on your site
