Default GAB does not work with PhotoPost.

I added the new script for the PotoPost index (ppindex). The banner rotates and shows correctly, but all of the banner links point to (domain name removed).

I know the links above normally redirect you to the advertisers URL but when used on PhotoPost gallery and calssifieds the redirection does not work.

The link is looking for the gab_redirect.php file in the current directory. Of course since both the gallery and classifieds are in their own directory it bombs.

I tried setting the full URL to the gab_redirect.php file in the settings but no luck.

I've also tried adding the gab_redirect.php file to both the gallery and classifieds directories. No luck,

I then tried to enter the full path to the global.php file statement inside the gab_redirect.php file. No luck.

So it looks like at this time GAB will only work inside of your forums root directory.

I'm going to have to go back to using PHPAdsNew until we can find a workaround.

If you use rotating and/or flash banners, edit the GAB_item_flash and GAB_item_rotating templates accordingly.

HTHs'
I think I need to explain myself a little better.

The images are showing (and rotating) just fine. It's the link when I click on them that is not working. Changing the $GAB_settings[url_to_banners] in the template would only change where to look for the image (which is not the problem).

actually, I did understand you however I am being a doofus. You are right, ignore that (in fact, Im deleting it after this!)

This is what you need to do:

For Standard Banners:

Edit your GAB_item_images template and change:
PHP Code:
href="$ad[url]" 
to
PHP Code:
href="http://www.mysite.com/forum/$ad[url]" 
For ROLLOVERS:

Edit geek/ gab /includes/gab_class_core.php and change:
PHP Code:
$gab_urls.="'./" $this->settings['redirectpage'] . "?id=$ad[id]&$redirect_url',"
to
PHP Code:
$gab_urls.="'http://www.YOURSITE.com/forums/" $this->settings['redirectpage'] . "?id=$ad[id]&$redirect_url',"

HTHs!!!
