Default Flash and Images?

Hi there,

I have a number of advertisers and I have JPG files and 2 flash files....is there anyway that I can get them both to randomly display? I've been having a play around and can only seem to get one or the other, or one above the other.

Thanks!!

If you edit your billboard, you can add another ad block to pull flash banners. THen set the billboard to randomly pull an ad instead of showing them all.

HTHs!

awesome cheers

now one more problem lol now I have done this the flash banners show at a much higher rate than all the other banners (they haven't been up for half as long as the others but already have double the impressions lol )

I'm guessing the randomisation selects weather to go for images or flash and then picks one of them. ( i have 2 flash banners and 10 images ) meaning 50/50 chance of image or flash and a much higher impression rate for the 2 flash banners.

Thats correct, its a limitation to having a 'mix bag' of ad types in the same billboard. The System has to randomly select which type of banner to show, then the frequency comes into it - which will not always give you the desired results.

On one of my sites, the way I got around this was to make all the ads HTML banners (essentially taking the Flash and images HTML and putting it in the HTML block). Then there is only 1 type to pull from and the frequency works perfectly.

HTHs
