Default Need some help with Banners

Hello everyone, I first wanted to thank everyone for reading this.

My issue is this. I have my GAB set up and currently, I have to 2 banners at the top of my page, how do I get them to stop rotating their position? I Mean with 2 it isnt that bad, they just flip flop since they are placed next to each other. But I also tried to put a footer banner , and when I did that, then the 3 banners would be rotating postions btwn the 3. This is an issue for me, since I am selling the top of the page for more money then the bottom.

So if anyone can help me just set up my banners as STATIC banners and not rotation positions btwn the 3 I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks

It sounds like you need to add another 'ad' block to your billboard. Can you post the results of your debug in a [php] block so I can see?

Templates with $GAB_ads[x] in them:
Styleid 1 Title header contains $GAB_ads[0]
Styleid 1 Title header contains $GAB_ads[1]
Styleid 1 Title header contains $GAB_ads[2]
gab folder check
GAB directory looks valid and I can write to it!

The way that it is currently set up should not be rotating. RIght now, you have 1 billboard, although it is set up in 3 places in your title template (the $GAB_ads[2] shouldnt be producing any results).
Also, your tampa moto one wont appear as it isnt active.

What you want to do is look at setting up a billboard for each ad space. If you want one in the header and one in the footer, that is 2 billboards you need.
If you want one of the billboards to show 2 ads side by side, then edit that billboard and add another ad to it. If you want them to rotate between 2 ads, set the billboard up to have only 1 ad (as it does now) and set the number to 2 (or 3 or whatever).

Once you have your billboards configured, edit the master script and assign them to the $GAB_ads section.

Hope this helps!

Do you want the ads to appear in different spots or next to each other?
