Make your banner , upload it and set the category as a 'skyscraper'.
Then edit your existing billboards and make sure they do not pull from the skyscraper category.
Then create a new billboard that pulls only from the skyscraper category.
Then edit your scripts (most likely just your master script) and set one of the $GAB_ads to your new billboard (make sure that the $GAB_ads[x] is in your templates somewhere).

Hope this helps!

I have a banner set up for a skyscraper, but it shows up on the header & footer banner areas as well. I have all the other banners set up on the correct categories, but it's still not working.....any other ideas?

make sure that they are in a skyscraper category, then make sure each billboard only pulls from the correct category (i.e. skyscrapers for the vertical ads and everything BUT skyscrapers for the other)

Does that help?

That's exactly how I have everything set up. I only have 2 skyscrapers on my board (at the moment) but they still show up in the other sections.


*Shrugs*


Ya got me man.

Well, I've updated it to the newer version, but I'm still having a problem with getting the skyscrapers to show up correctly.

I also can't seem to post banners in certian sections only, must be me? (as it usually is.)


Please help me!!! (again)

thanks,

Joe

THe problem was that you had exempted your usergroup from seeing ads. There also wasnt a $GAB_ads[2] in the header template where you were trying to place it (took me awhile to figure that one out!)

HTHs

Excellent, thank you!

Now, how do I get it so certian banners only show up in the sections I've picked out for them.


I have sponsored sections that don't want anything but their ads showing up. I has this working properly before. But since I've upgraded, I can't seem to do it anymore.

Any ideas on this one?
