I want to create a Skyscraper Ad on my vBulletin CMPS home page that will rotate between several 175x70 pixel graphic link banners. How would I go about setting this up in the new GAB if it is possible? Thanks for any direction on this. :)

In short, you need to add some banners, set up a billboard, configure the scripts section, and edit templates, but please check the GAB readme file, as it contains everything I could think to write about the GAB add-on.

Well, I've got the ads loaded and they are showing up fine as rotating banners in the footer template of my site, but how can i get them to show up in a CMPS block in the left hand column of my home page? Right now I have a CMPS block that shows each of the sponsor ads on our site in a column down the left hand side of the home page. I want to replace that with a rotating banner using GAB if at all possible. Any help is most appreciated.

Go to the ACP GAB Manager -> Scripts -> adv_index and set at least one ad block, and then add the $GAB_ads[X] (X = 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, or 9) variable(s) to a vBa template or create a new vBa template module, using the $GAB_ads[X] variable(s) as part of the template.
