Ads between posts, works great but quick question
« on: November 20, 2006, 10:47:32 pm »
First off, this MOD is way sweet and totally beyond what I expected!

Thanks Jerm and Big Guy! I just have a quick question and hopefully it's a simple one.

When the ads are posted in between posts it looks like somebody posted it. It has the topic title and the date and then the ad itself.

Is there anyway to have just the ad below the 1st post without the topic and date? I think it kind of distracts from the ad a little bit.

Any guidance on this one?  :)

There is a way to change that. I have seen it posted here. Do a search and you might find it. I am not sure where it is now.

I have done several searches with different wording, and have yet to find anything yet!  :-\

Hopefully somebody will chime in.

This is done so that it actually looks like a post. That way someone might just click it by accident.
You should look into display.template.php

That's the whole thing, I'd rather it not like like a post, I wouldn't mind if someone clicked on it accidentally.

Thanks for the idea of checking display.template.php. Although I'm not too savvy with PHP, the comments in the code really help! From my novice point of view I can't see where the AD is posted here. Maybe there is a another file I could look at that posts the ad? Or maybe I'm not seeing it.

Any further input is very much anticipated and appreciated.

Thanks!  :)

Wow, that sure is a nice gesture JERM!   8)

I have attached the only file I was able to download which is

"Display.template.php~"

Display.template.php would not let me d/l it. It said:
Transferring Files Failed:
Display.template.php: Failed to open local target file /Users/Joe/Desktop/Display.template.php:Is a directory


So I sure hope I am attaching the right file for you.

BTW: This is kind of the look I was hoping for: http://howardforums.com/showthread.php?t=1049953

Thanks again!!!!!  :)

That file is a backup file of the original. I doubt it will work. (it might) You should contact your host to find out why that file is a directory
