Increasing spacing between Horizontal or Vertical ads
« on: January 30, 2016, 10:26:48 pm »
Can you please advise if there is a method to increase the spacing between horizontal ads (i.e. in Message Index) or vertical ads (Right Side of Forum).

Currently, the ads in the horizontal section are tight together and there should be some separation.

If there is a way to achieve this, can you please provide some samples.

Thanks very much.

Possibly never tried but you could edit sources/adsller2.php

Around liens 2640 and 2672


For vertical it would be adding more <br /> tags

Code: [Select]
if ($verticalAd == true)
$adDisplayData .= '<br />';
To
Code: [Select]
if ($verticalAd == true)
$adDisplayData .= '<br /><br />';
In both spots


FOr horizontal would involve more spacing
Code: [Select]
if ($verticalAd == true)
$adDisplayData .= '<br />';
else
$adDisplayData .= '&nbsp;&nbsp;';
To
Code: [Select]
if ($verticalAd == true)
$adDisplayData .= '<br /><br />';
else
$adDisplayData .= '&nbsp;&nbsp;';

No success with your suggestion, would you be willing to customize the code for a fee?

Maybe I would have to think what to do differently though.
I would need to know the ad types used.

Banner type ads, again, currently they are tight, side to side (horizontal). I could try to add white space on each of the left and right side of the ad but then it would be 'white' in those areas where the theme is not white. This would be a lot of messing with the graphics so preferably, increasing the spacing would be best.

Also, I should mention that I've been really impressed with your service, your products and your knowledge. Is there any chance that you would be for hire with regard to providing custom SMF work and continued maintenance?  I would certainly understand if you don't have time because you have a huge product line already. If you can't, can you recommend someone of your caliber that you respect?

Thanks in advance.

It worked, not sure why it didn't work the first time but maybe I was on an incorrect line. Here is the code, starting on line 2670.

Again, I really appreciate your time and suggestions, the ads now look very professional. I hope this may help others in the future.

/Sources/AdSeller2.php

    // Banner   (LINE # 2670)
    if ($adRow['adtype'] == 2)
    {
        if ($verticalAd == true)
          $adDisplayData .= '<br />';
       // ------------------------------------------------------------------------ 
       // ~ Custom Change ~ 2016-02-03 added the following to increase horizontal spacing
      else
        {
         
        if ($verticalAd == false)
            $adDisplayData .= '&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;';
         
        }
       // ------------------------------------------------------------------------
