    Can anyone recommend a VB plugin for banner ad management?

    Not including PHPADSNEW/OpenAds

    Thanks

    What's wrong with openads? It's exceptionally good at what it does! I've not found a vb plugin that can compete with it really

    It is what caused the excessive server load on the site, I think spammers were using it's code as I get weird (porn-related) URLs in my referrer logs.

    No, I've had it twice with that system.

    I guess that's the price you pay for OpenGL software.

    I found something more integrated with VB that does all I need.

    What is that btw?

    Likewise do you have a list of mod's you use on here, as I am fiddling with VB so any ideas for useful VB stuff would be handy :)

    There's a few advertising mods over on vbulletin.org that are pretty good, but it depends on what you need.

    Are you using a php caching engine?

    Hi Admin

    I run a vbulletin forum and currently use this AD MANAGEMENT SCRIPT PHP Ads Banner Ad management. PHP ADS MANAGEMENT SCRIPT

    It allows to you sell ad packages, you create the package, i.e so many days, so many impressions or so many clicks. You take payment via paypal (automatically knows when payment has been made) or you can add manual transactions. You set the size of the banners, so you could have a some 468x60 packages, 728x90 etc

    The only problem is when someone creates an advertising account with a different email address with what they make payment with. The system can´t link the credit with the advertiser. In that case you just have to manually credit and change their account email to that of their paypal email.

    thanks for the info, it's probably more than I need especially as I turn down some advertising approaches as they aren't relevant enough to my userbase, so the whole automated thing would probably be more hastle in my case.

    Interesting script though for not a lot of money.

    Cheers
