Installation Instructions? - Advertisement Management

Glad it works now :)

Just as an FYI, the modification is automatically installed as soon as a page is visited (from the function call in functions.php that also outputs the advertisements).

Though I am thinking I should remove the auto-installer for reasons such as this where the module does not seem to show up with the auto-install (and I have no idea why) yet the issue never seems to happen for other modifications that do not auto-install.

I am having this issue, as well. I am unable to see the advertising module under board configuration. I have edited all files correctly, and replaced all root files as indicated in the install.xml. I tried running ads.uninstall.php a few times. When I select OK to uninstall I am just presented with a blank screen. After clicking a few forums, etc... I am still unable to view the advertising module under board config. Any ideas/suggestions?

ANy help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Depending upon which version of the mod you may need to run the database.php file instead of uninstall.php

Hello ... The installation instructions are illegible....So, I assumed I simply had to copy the folders/files accordingly, login, refresh, and poof - the ad mod would appear. It hasn't. Can someone guide me here more specifically with the installation? Beginner/novice type.

Also, if I have to execute a php file for my site, how is this done? Forgive my level of understanding.

Ok.. Here's my problem.. I installed the mod.. it installed fine, I refreshed.. it refreshed fine.. I created an ad, and made sure that the image was uploaded and the code was pointing to the right image location.. but I can't see the image when returning to the board. I refreshed again, nothing.. the links to the sites the ads were supposed to be advertising work.. but no image.. any thoughts? Oh.. I might mention that I installed this yesterday on a test board that I use before I put them live on any other boards I'm actually using.. and it worked like a charm..

And I might add that it shows as a broken image link.. the frame is there for the banner.. just no image..

I would really appreciate any help you guys may be able to offer.. :)

First of all, this is a great MOD! Thanks!!

Quick question. Is it necessary to make the manual edits for every style I try? It seems to be as when I changed styles, the ads disappaered although the views counter kept incrementing whenever I would visit a page where the ads were supposed to be. So, it was like the ads were hidden.

If it is necessary to make the edits for each style, can I just copy the modified files over to the other styles, or are these files different for every style?

If it is necessary to make the manual edits for each style, are their any future plans to improve the installation process to take care of those edits as a part of the installation?

Again, this is a great MOD, when I was able to use it with the default style.

I have this installed in the latest ver. of phpbb - I have a set up settings page, and I can create an ad. But nothing shows up on the forum. On your 4 screen shots, one has a ad preview pane, which I do not see. Suggestions?

I'm new to phpbb and to me the installation process is not clear, either.. I run instal.xls on the computer and I get a page with lots of stuff on it.. and now?

About the "File copy" section. Is this stuff that already happend when I ran "install"? or am I to do it myself?

About the "Edit" section. Is this stuff that needs to be done manually?

And what exactly am I to upload and to which directory?

And after the upload, what?

trully, aren't there any neat installation instructions for the novice?

thnx
