I get the following message

De geselecteerde extensie heeft een ongeldige mapstructuur en kan niet ingeschakeld worden.

The selected extension has an invalid directory structure and can not be switched.
You probably didn't create proper extension structure. It needs to be <root>/ext/phpbb/ads/. Place all the files from the github in this directory.
It stands in the ext
All the new version gives this error
The first version works perfectly :mrgreen:

USE ONLY THE EXTENSION DOWNLOAD LINK IN THE FIRST POST!

If you download the github repository things will go horribly wrong for you because the extension is being developed, and changed a lot.

Only the zipped release linked to in the first post is supported and safe to install on a test board at the moment. And upgrade instructions will be provided in subsequent releases as needed (and the next version we release will have very important upgrade instructions).

Guys,
Ad priority has been implemented. Now you can decide which ads you want to display more often than others.

Wondering if sidebar ads in the grey areas to our left and right will be a possibility?

No. Two reasons: The first is that is usually unsightly and makes a site look unprofessional. The second, is that is outside the layout of the page, so there are no template locations to achieve that...not to mention it would seriously impede phpBB's responsive design.

That is not to say, however, that if there is a nice extension that adds proper sidebars to phpBB within the actual page content-space (sort of like a Board3 Portal page has) and that they're extendable, that we wouldn't include the option to have ads placed in those types of locations.

You can add blocks with the sitemaker extension, or the board3 extension and put your custom ads there.

It is similar, but written from scratch. The difference is, that bb3mobi's ads are abandoned, while this is official extension, thus support guaranteed.
