[Plugin: Advertising Manager] Can’t get ads to display from OpenX

  • Hey all,

    I’m trying to install OpenX zones manually into my wordpress Gazette theme. Any suggestions as to where to start? Thank you!

  • I’ve never used OpenX, but you should be able to embed just about any HTML in a text widget.

    If your theme support’s widgets, place a text widget in your sidebar with the embedded ad code.

    If PHP is involved, try searching for a PHP widget plugin.

    Thanks CCrest.

    The plugin site suggests to paste this code:
    <?php advman_ad(‘name’); ?>
    …”where the ads should go.”

    Do you think that means I just enter that code, having changed to the name, in the sidebar.php?

    moved another freaking post to the right forum

    That’s PHP. A regular Text widget won’t be able to handle it. You will need to go to “Plugins > Add New” and search for “PHP Widget” to find a plugin to install that will make a PHP widget available at “Appearance > Widgets”.

    Then put the PHP widget in your sidebar(s) and paste the code in and save. View Site.

    I tried Google Ad Manager instead…

    Our gazette theme calls on separate PHP files for displaying the ads. I put the ad script codes in those separate PHP files and it worked!

    In order to use OpenX zones, follow these instructions:

    1. Generate an OpenX zone tag.
    2. Past the contents of this tag in Advertising Manager.

    That’s it!

    Now, you can position your OpenX zone easily using Advertising Manager (e.g. as a widget, in your template, or inline with your post), and you can use OpenX’s sophisticated ad selection and delivery for your ads.

    Cheers,
    Scott
