Something like the built in "Ad Location" templates in vB?
I am not sure if this has been implemented as of yet, but if I recall correctly, either it will be implemented, or will be very easy to do via the template system.
This will be very easy to do via the template system.
+1 for this, absolutely!
I personally dont see the need. If you are going to open up a template to stick an advert in, it may as well be the actual template - would save an advert template being included into a main template, and reduce load.
(note: I'm basing this on an assumption of a similar storage/handling system as vb)
I'd use it if it were a feature, but I really see no point in going out of their way to add it.
This is essential for many of us.
I hope they are implemented in the final version without having to modify templates.
I use a 3rd party script for that, so just a simple *add your ad script below* in the templates would be sufficient.
If they're not included, a simple str_replace() on a plugin will suffice!
I can imagine advertisement integration is something included in XF though.
ad location templates like in vB are a absolute must.
I disagree, because as I'm sure you know, it makes upgrading templates a hassle. At least that was the case with vBulletin.
I prefer this should be done via plugin.
Hacking the templates are too ephemeral, definitely something persisting through template updates... similar to WordPress widgets would rock.
