I just want to point out that AuctionAds are paying $25 to all new publishers.

All you have to do is register as a publisher

EASY MONEY

Karl - me again

I'm using SMF 1.1.4 and just installed this.

In the Manage Post Settings in Admin, the new fields & tick box are there but with no labels
I'm using the default theme and the only two other mods installed so far are Buy me a Beer and ARS (both by you - do I get a fan club badge? :D ;)

How do I get the labels to show in the manage posts page so I know which is the AuctionAds ID and which is the campaign name?

Are you using utf-8?

if so you will need to copy the language strings added by the install.xml file to your utf-8 modifications.english-utf8.php

Thanks Karl - that's what it was (completely forgot that - I'll learn to remember it eventually)

Utf8 is a different character set that users with multiple languages may use.

SMF supports both ASCII and utf8 character sets.

Its the way the information is stored.

Utf-8 provides better support for multiple languages (with the additional non-alpha numeric characters).

AuctionAds is no-more.

Its been merged into ShoppingAds, so I'm removing this mod
