Hello All,

GABS comes recommended by Peggy of top-vb. I'm looking to purchase on behalf of a client. I have one question:

Can I define zones and then have only certain ads go into each zone.

The board I'll be working on has two zones, one for vertical ads and one for horizontal. Obviously you cannot mix and match them.

Is that possible with this mod and if it is possible how do you place the rotator within the templates with simple $gabs1 and $gabs2 calls?

Thank you,

Hey Danny,

Instead of zones, you have a combination of categories and scripts.

You define which scripts gab will run on (i.e. showthread, search, etc...). Each script then runs 1 or more billboards. A billboard can have 1 or more ads (though they have to be the same type) and they can be limited to a particular category.

Its a bit complex, but what you are trying to do is easy to achieve by:

Creating 2 billboards (vert and horizontal). Limit the ads to be pulled from corresponding categories (i.e. cateogries that hold only vertical ads or horizontal ads).
Then assign those billboards accordingly in your script.

Hope that didnt muddle it up too much :D
