Ads extension suggestion for specific forums

Post by Danny Wyatt »

Eventually, I would like to add some ads to my board, but since I have different areas where different subjects can be discussed, I would like to show some ads in certain forums, but not others.
For example, let's say I have a forum for drummers and a forum for guitarists. If I have an ad for a promotion on a drum store, I don't want those to show in the guitarists forum, just on the drummers forum.

I found this extension, but not sure if this is possible or not?
https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/extension/ads/

If not this one, any suggestions on other extensions?
I think the one above seems to be a good option, because it seems I can give certain people access to insights (so I could give access to the people paying for the ads), and some other things that seem interesting, but if you guys have other suggestions, feel free to share.

No. The extension you found publishes advertisements on all forums. At the moment, there are no extensions with a choice of which individual forums to display advertising and which not. I once wanted to order an extension with such a function from the developers. But the price of $300 seemed too high to me.

Thank you for your feedback.
That extension ($300) was from the same developer of this extension or another extension from another developer?

If you are not making a good amount of money via advertisement I can see how $300 seems a lot, but I think over time, with a good board and traffic, that's a good investment, especially if you have a way to show potential advertisers that having that separation is good for them, because the chances of a user clicking them is higher than a random ad that doesn't fit them.
My goal is to have specific ads, by contacting companies directly instead of having generic Google ads and all that. I hate it when I'm on a music forum and I see an ad for a car or something like that.

And if it's a one time payment of $300, eventually that gets paid off.

Maybe I will start with more generic ads that may fit all users so I can get paid and then invest that money into a custom extension. Appreciate the feedback 🙌

Hi All,

I am also looking for a solution to publish Google Advertisement to a specific forum in my PHP BB website.

I installed an extension called ADVERTISEMENT MANAGEMENT. Its setting also applies to the entire website.

If any developers can do some developments that can serve the purpose, I am interested to know more about it.

May I seek any further advice how I can find PHPBB developers to discuss with them?

Thanks.
