Title: Just some questions about Ad Management mod
Post by: ajac63 on July 25, 2019, 04:08:56 am
I have some questions about the Ad Management mod, sorry if these seem like silly questions. ::)
Under 'Ad Ads' you have the 'Name' field and if you click on the ? mark you are presented with 'This is the name that you will give your ads.' Does this mean one ad or more than one ad?  Because 'ads' suggests more than one ad, right?

For the 'Content' field, if you click on the ? mark you get 'This section is for placing your ad code.'  I assume this is for just one ad, right?

For the 'Display ads after categories' field, how do I specify the category?  By number or by URL?  Sorry, but this is not obvious, especially as my categories are not numbered as such, could be wrong.

The name of ad is just for your reference You can have more that one ad in the same ad spot.

When you fill out the add ad page. That is just for one ad. So when adding content that is just for the one Ad you are adding.


For categories yes it is based on the category number. You can see that category number when viewing the link/url of the category it should have an id in it.

Okay, many thanks for clearing that up.  By the way, is there a dummy ad-code anywhere on smfhacks that I could use for the content field just for testing purposes?

I do not have dummy code. But you can just post text in it. Such as ad goes here. in the html field.

Ah, OK, got that.  I thought that only html could go there or php.  Thanks.
