----------------------------

Support Notes
I will only support the prosilver and subsilver2 edits, all other styles (i.e. Acidtech, Serenity, non-default styles etc) are the responsibility of the user to figure out how to apply the edit.
Time taken for me to figure out what the problem is means less time finishing this MOD and my other MODs. -- You may ask the question, and hope others will answer it, but I do not have time to deal with such issues.

When asking for support, please be a specific and provide as many details as possible, I do not have time to entertain the "it doesn't work" support posts. I will no longer attempt to pry the issue out of you. If you would like support, please be thorough in your question. This again, is for the purpose of allowing me to finish this and my other MODs instead of taking the time to figure out difficult support questions because the user didn’t take the time to explain it in detail.

Thanks for understanding. :)

Did what the installation told me to do, but nothing showed up. Refreshed, and deleted the cache, and still nothing. :(

EDIT: Never mind, i fixed it :) Working brilliantly

ok.. I see.. One has to run the xml file to read the instruction in proprer format...
Please state that somewhere as something to do after the download. It's not obvious to many.

Hmmmm. doesn't work. I guess it's for phpbb3 only. I don't have prosilver template...
How do I insert this in the normal subsilver template from phpbb2?

thanks

It’s designed to only work in phpBB3 templates. -- I did not add any support for phpBB2.
However, I believe there are some phpBB2 Advertisement MODs out there already. ;)

Sounds like a great mod, cant wait to use it. :o

Can you add the banners via admin panel?? any screenshots??

You should make it so you can have banners in every spot possible, maybe something for adding links on the footer also

I will it install it when phpbb 3 is done and your mod.

I dont think its a good idea modding phpbb 3 when in beta stage

I got that feature request already on STG, I just forgot to add it to this list. :? -- added now.

Seems like a good idea to me. Now is as good a time as any. :) -- I started building MODs for phpBB3 at Beta2 :D

I must be missing something very obvious, I have installed the mod and the footer is displaying fine, but not the inline ad ?

Any suggestions ?
