Default Is it compatile with vB 7.2.x

Morgan is it completely compatible with vB 3.7.x series?

What about google code?

There are already some hack that shows add after some post but I saw in the tutorial that we have to change code? If it is so, isn't it no good than we find in the vb.org?

I am just curios.

Is it simple to install and then use ?

Do we need to change any code after installing like for CMS, add after some post etc?


Thanks in advance.

GAB should be fine and dandy on vB 3.7.2, and Google AdSense in GAB would be set up as a text ad with the Google snippet going into the HTML box. For things like ads on a CMS page and after posts, yes, code edits would be needed to scope the GAB variable in functions. IMO GAB is easy to install, but may take some time to get the hang of how to operate it. More information about GAB can be found here. GAB allows people to place banners, or groups of banners, from all categories or certain categories, on all forums/scripts or selected forums/scripts, for viewing by all usergroups or certain usergroups, while allowing certain usergroups to turn off ads, not to mention weighting and stat tracking. GAB has placement control in that if you want to, for example, show banner X below the navbar in forum X you can do that. GAB is good for ads in non-repeating locations like the top, bottom, or side column of a page, but GAB is not good for repeating locations such as happens with the forumbit. For rotating banners, only images can be rotated, but there are free ad management add-ons on vBorg so GAB may or may not be the right choice for everyone. Hope that helps.

Hi Guys

Why is there a free version and a paid version. I saw this on vbulleting . org What the difference in the two versions, if they are two. I need a banner system that works, i;ve tried vbadmanagement, but it does not work.

Cheers

If we could get the omparison page with free, paid and available product in the market would be nice.

The free geek versions were not written by my so the only thing I can suggest is to compare the descriptions, and if you have questions, then just post them.
