I am presently a vbulletin customer that stumbled upon XF as I am not interested in vb4 as its quite buggy. My site is hawkeyenation.com/forum and I have quite a bit of advertising on my site, some local and some third party networks. I also have a sports publishers consulting biz where I help pubs maximize their third party ad revs...so XF could be a wide spread solution. How does XF interact with ad networks? The XF communities I have examined have not been ad heavy...can you place ads after the first post in threads? footer areas? Many of my ads are outside the forum template and in general design areas, but some are in the forums. Thanks for any feedback, or links to sites that are running XF and also have ads.
