Default Still cant get different blocks to show

Trying to get 1 set of ads (Site Ads) in the header and another (default) in the main page...

I have the 'Master' setup as the following:

$GAB_ads[0] - Default
$GAB_ads[1] - Site Ads

This way all the pages will show the ads in the header and the main forum page.


Under Site Ads - I have it choosing ads from Site Ads

I have designated one ad (for test purposes) to the catagory 'Site Ads'

When I put the $GAB_ads[1] in the header nothing shows...I put $GAB_ads[0] there just to make sure that it wasnt something else and that will show the same block as the main page.

Not sure why the $GAB_ads[1] is not showing anything. Seems to me all is setup correctly.

It looks like the only style where $GAB_ads[1] is put is in style 21. Make sure you are using that style to view.
The other thing I noticed is that the only ad that would get pulled there is your inkworks ad. For some reason, its set to show in the MASTER script, though that shouldnt be there, it should read || which could be the reason why. Can you edit the ad and make sure that no scripts are selected?

Thanks

I am using the correct Style..

The Inkworks ad is set to 'All Scripts'
The Site Ads Billboard has 1 ad that is set to pull only from the Site Ads catagory
The Inkworks ad is the only one in the Site Ads catagory.

If I change the Billboard Site Ads to 'All Catagories' then a second set of main ads does show...but If I change it to Select Catagory (and choose Site Ads) nothing shows.

Can you try something for me?

Edit your gab_class_core.php file and change this line:
PHP Code:
$sql "SELECT id,img,views,url,type,trackviews,trackhits,html,frequency,title,height,width,catid,templatetype FROM " TABLE_PREFIX "GAB_ads WHERE isactive = 1 AND (scripts = '||' OR scripts like '%|$scriptname|%') $forumwhere"
to
PHP Code:
$sql "SELECT id,img,views,url,type,trackviews,trackhits,html,frequency,title,height,width,catid,templatetype FROM " TABLE_PREFIX "GAB_ads WHERE isactive = 1 AND (scripts = '||' OR scripts like '%|$scriptname|%' OR scripts = '|MASTER|') $forumwhere"
And let me know if that made any difference.

Thanks!
