View Full Version : adding a 2nd placement

Hello, I need a little help.

I've only had gab_[0] in one place on my site.. In the header, and I see how I can make banners rotate.


now, I'm stumped on what to add and how to set it up so I can rotate a billboard add in the post.

Right now I have the google add at the end of the postbit template.

If need be, I can make a small donation ( a few $'s ) for a step by step breakdown for me.

I've watched the videos and read all that I can find and I just can't seem to completely grasp it.

thanks
-Brandon

To place a gab banner in a postbit, there is an additional step you need to take: You need to create a hook to put $GAB_ads in the scope of the postbit constructor as it is created in a function.

Create a new hook called whatever in postbit_display_start with the following code:

global $GAB_ads;

Then $GAB_ads[x] will show in your postbits ;)

HTHs!

Templates with $GAB_ads[x] in them:
Styleid 4 Title header contains $GAB_ads[0]
Styleid 4 Title postbit contains $GAB_ads[1]
gab folder check
GAB directory looks valid and I can write to it!

I suppose if it is just adsense (as in you arent bother tracking the appearence) - you can put it in the master script.
however, I would instead, edit the showthread script. Turn off the 'use master' setting. THen assign the billboard in there.

HTHs!

well it's adsense right now, but I'd like to place 4 banners in rotation in this spot

can I pay you a little bit to set this up for me ?
