If there's several ads in the same zone/location, can we have it automatically "display ad with the best CTR" so that our best performing ads appear more often (and we make more money)?
So our team talked about this. What happens if you use a 'custom' ad, such as Adsense, at the same location? We cannot capture CTR if it is flash or custom (adsense). So those ads would never be able to get displayed, or at least have a much lower 'weight'.
We have a concept of 'weight' which can be manually set. But for it to automatically weight certain ads I'm not sure if that would be confusing. There likely is a way to do this, but some understandings would have to be had I think. Do other add-ons have this by chance? Do you know how they handle this?
No... image caching at the browser. Other ad managers have issues with multiple image delivery on page load, beating browser caching. Is this an issue with this add-on that others have?
If you enable browser caching, does the same image load in a placeholder due to caching, or will it rotate on page load correctly?
Since the image URL is different, as in it'll be the name that you uploaded it as, browser caching should not be an issue. I cannot see how it could be, at least.
Suggestion: add some sort of limit of pagination on the stats page or view details
My site isn't busy and only 2 ads so far

We've added pagination, good point.
Looks great. Would it be possible to connect a banner to a thread?
I`d like to create a classifieds section in my forum. When a user adds a premium classified ad, he also gets a banner. When the ad gets deleted, the banner should also be deleted. Would this be possible with this add-on? If not, could you add it as a custom feature and tell me what it would cost?
If I understand you correctly, you want someone with an active thread X in forum y to associate itself with a banner Z. If X is deleted then so does Z?
I think this is something that can be custom, but Im not sure if this would be common enough to integrate into the main add-on. We can build a separate add-on though for you if you're interested
Sure PM me we can discuss the details.
another suggestion / feature request. Is it possible to capture the Page / URL from where a click was recorded, and add to the stats in the Advertisement Clicks log?
Added to the feature list. My only question might be if this is something a stats engine specifically would be better at (and likely the answer is yes). But if its just the page/url I think thats something we can do.
How does this work with adsense? Adsense had a beta direct buy program which was great but they cancelled it.
I'll buy once there's an easy way for me to run adsense ads but then have the option for someone to buy a certain adspot and once that happens their ad automatically replaces the adsense one and then it reverts back to adsense when their time period (or impressions or clicks) runs out.
You can easily use adsense.
What it doesnt do (but can) is show ad Y only if its the only one in its spot. Meaning if you add advertisement X, X will show and Y won't anymore. This isn't a bad idea if others agree, we would create a setting for the Ad that either:
- set weight to 0, will only show if its the only ad at this ad location
- OR a specific checkbox that says 'Only show ad if only spot in location'
Does that make sense?
Currently though what you could do is give adsense a .1 weight and your other ads a 1 or even a 100, then that ad will show up more than adsense will. I agree this isn't elegant for your situation but was built with the idea in mind that if you have 2 banners, and one makes you more money, then you can weight it so it shows up more times.
