I can't seem to get this to work ::)  Does it only work with the default SMF theme?

-Dan The Man

Jerry

it will work with other themes, but you must the code manually to other themes.

OK, you're going to have to help me out here.  All I see is one big code, what file do I edit?!

-Dan The Man

in that code there are these tags

<edit file>
</edit file>

Those will tell you which file to edit.

<search for>
</search for>

Search for that in the file it told you to

<replace>
</replace>

will tell you what to replace what you searched for with.

Hopes that makes sense :-\

This is what i getr, when adding a banner. what is going wrong.

Here's a suggestion - can the option be made to add in HTML code instead of the image? For example, if somebody wanted to put Google Adsense code

Does the Banner mod allow you to attach banners to particular category forums of message boards. For example I have created a category for a particular group and within that group is their clients I'd like to be able to create a banner that just those clients see - an ad for the vendor that just their clients will see.

I don't know if I'm explaining this correctly.

Thanks

Jerry

no, this mod only has one set of banners. But you can control which groups get to see banners

You have to rename a fieldname TARGETWINDOW in your banners table to WINDOW you can do that with phpMyadmin !


Wij ondersteunen SMF forums & safe mode staat uit.

Look in the .mod file that comes in the package, and find the template.phip files that it mentions, and do those edits to the theme you wish it to appear on.
