[Plugin: Advertising Manager] Multiple ads rotating over multiple spots and ad names (4 posts)

    Hi,

    My first question is the following:
    I'm momentarily using the ad buttons plug-in to display 4 125x125 ads in my sidebar. The content of the 4 ads rotates from around 8 different ads. Is this possible with ad manager? So there would be 4 ad spots, where there are 4 different advertisements, chosen from my stock of ads.

    My second question:
    The names of the ads need to be the same to rotate in the same spot. No problem of course, but it would be better if we could identify the individual ads in the edit menu. Is there any way to do this at the moment? I don't mean by the number, but by setting some keyword?

    Thanks a lot!

    Question 1:

    You can do this - name all the ads in your inventory the same thing, and set the 'Max Ads Per Page' to be 1 for all your ads. Then, add 4 ad spots, all requesting the name that you chose for your ads.

    Question 2:

    I agree - in the future, Advertising manager will have the ability to set the 'zone', and have the ability to 'attach' an ad to a particular zone (or zones) from the edit menu. This has been done in a significant upgrade, but I need to focus on stability for WP 2.9 before this happens.

    Good luck,
    Scott

    I'm a total novice, setting up a WP page for the first time.

    I'm using the DarkZen theme, and it has advertising spots. I want to put in my own pictures there or elminate the spots entirely. I can't find any way to get into these spots.

    Help? . . .

    You will need to edit your template in order to modify this. I assume you are not technical, but usually the term 'banner' or 'ad' appears in the source code of the template where an ad displays. You can replace this with:

    <?php advman_ad('name'); ?>

    (where 'name' is the name of your ad in Advertising Manager)

    if you want Advertising Manager to manage the ads for you.

    Hope this helps,
    Scott
