Language makes no difference.
Verify that you uploaded the changes. If you followed all instructions in the MODX (install.xml) file, and you cleared the template cache for the template(s) you installed this on, it should show up immediately.

Excuse me?!? -- What do you think ads are for?!? :?
Some people have bandwidth and hosting costs. Ads are an excellent way to pay for those expenses. -- notice that even phpBB.com has ads in the footer.
Please think before posting.

Yes! you sure can.
I don’t know what Serenity is based on, if it’s a subSilver2 type of style where it uses tables for the layout, use the subSilver2 instructions.
If it uses the tableless design like prosilver, use the prosilver instructions. :D

Thanks for the link. :D

Serenity is a subSilver2 based style, so you would use the subSilver2 instructions for installing this MOD on that style. :)

just installed the mod seems to be working well, great job!

I have a fixed width board so I will have to change the google avatar and change the size of my inline google ad, but that is easy enough ;)

Coherence with the messages in the posts...is it possible?

Post by fiorefrank » Fri Jul 06, 2007 10:39 pm

hi,
I have installed this mod but there is a problem...
The pubblicity is always the same... i mean that if in the post i'm talking about "Cars"(for example) the publicity will be always about server and hosting...
I think that this happen because Adsense script doesn't read the messages cause them are stored in the database while adsense script read the text into the page(it seems to me)
What do you think about it?
Best regards

This is a great mod, have you ever thought about expanding it to a rotating banner ad mod.

I am looking for a mod were I can sell advertising space in the form of a 468 x 60 banner, maybe 10 ads they get displayed after each window refresh. Sorry for putting this here, but I think your mod could be reworked to do this.

I have the mod working and changed the size of the banner so it fts on my fixed width board, but the ad is justified left, how can I center the banner in the inline post. I know it is probably simple like adding a center prefix or something, but I dont want to screw the mod up now that it is working ;) Thanks for all your hard work!

All you need to do is change the following:
Find this file: styles/prosilver/template/ad_banner.html

Code: Select all

Line 10 FIND 
<div class="content">

CHANGE TO 
<div class="copyright">
It is currently functional on my board, see link below in sig.

Because you either did not upload your edited viewtopic_body.html, or you did not go to ACP > Styles > Templates > Serenity::refresh

So?
That’s what adsense does... it reads the page and finds the most relevant ads.

Yes! It is a planned feature. :D

When I get to that part, perhaps you could give me further input. ;)

In the ad_banner.html template...
FIND:

Code: Select all

<div class="content"> 
REPLACE, WITH:

Code: Select all

<div class="content" style="text-align:center;">
