Default Strange..

Not sure where it has gone but earlier there was a banner below the navbar that said "Example of HTML Advertisment" or something similar and had blue bars above and below it with a button to turn advertisments off.

Where has this gone, and more importantly - how can I get this on my board with my installation of GAB ?

Thanks,

Greg

Refresh this page until you see it. It is a HTML banner with the following HTML, using the GAB_item_html template, and having Wrapper set to yes in the billboard:
Code:
<strong>This is an HTML <a href="#">example</a>. Isn't it just wonderful?!?!</strong>

"This is an HTML example. Isn't it just wonderful?!?!" appears on that page, and yes, you can enter Gogole AdSense or any other text you want for an HTML banner .

There is a wrapper option under billboards in the ACP, and if set to no, then the ads appear without the GAB border.

Hello again, sorry to be a bother.

I have 3 ads displayed on the board index for guests, and the "Learn how to remove this ad" linked to the registration page - is there a way, for just members for the link to be changed so it links them somewhere else?

As I have a donation mod which i'd like to link regular members to, to entice them to subscribe to the group that wouldn't have ads as a guest clicking the link would be a bit pointless when they're not a member in the first place.

Does this make sense?

I basically want to know if there's a way to change the link depending on the usergroup.

Greg

Use a template conditional in the GAB_wrapper_standard template.

From:
Code:
<a href="$GAB_settings[url_turn_off_ads]" target="_blank">$vbphrase[GAB_learn_how_to_remove_ads]</a>
To:
Code:
<if condition="$show[member]">
	<a href="Link Here" target="_blank">Text Here</a>
<else />
	<a href="$GAB_settings[url_turn_off_ads]" target="_blank">$vbphrase[GAB_learn_how_to_remove_ads]</a>
</if>

I've just tried this with one of my skins

The "URL for users to learn how to turn off ads" option within the admincp is set to

http://www.maximum-jackson.com/discussion

This is what I replaced with the original code;

Code:
				<if condition="$show[member]">
	<a href="http://www.maximum-jackson.com" target="_blank">This is what a member see's.</a>
<else />
	<a href="$GAB_settings[url_turn_off_ads]" target="_blank">$vbphrase[GAB_learn_how_to_remove_ads]</a>
</if>
It still shows the same link and the same text for guests/non signed in members and members.

Is there anything I could be doing wrong?

This is the skin.
