What you need to do is open up the physical page and look for THIS_SCRIPT definition toward the top of the page.
Then go into your scripts and click the 'add new' button.

Enter the following info:
ID: THIS_SCRIPT VALUE
Description: Some text
Use Master: YES
Active: YES

Then you will need to edit your categories and make sure they have your script ticked.

Where exactly do I look for the "THIS_SCRIPT" definition?

Are you meaning the name of the PhotoPost template?

Thanks Geek, working great wih Photo Post Gallery and Classifieds.

Also, the newreply and newthread pages do not show a banner even after you add a script for them.

You need to also make sure the script is activated for the categories you use.

Hope this helps!

Geek,
I'm running Links & Downloads Manager (LDM) along with GAB and I'm having a similar issue. I renamed the LDM script to fit my website per the instructions in LDM readme file. So, the script is called sounclips.php, but the value for THIS_SCRIPT is actually local_links. Which name do I put for the script in the GAB Script panel? Will having the file name and the THIS_SCRIPT value different going to be a problem? LDM runs fine as is it, except for the banners not showing up.

doesnt matter if you renamed it, it only looks at the THIS_SCRIPT value. In this case it looks like its local_links
