Hello everybody,

I have a quick question about the banner system. This allows for two input fields in Nuke: Image URL and Click URL

Now some affiliate programs give 3 parts to this for linking and getting a commision. Using this format:

Quote:
<IMG SRC="http://www.url.com" BORDER="0" WIDTH="1" HEIGHT="1" NOSAVE >
<A HREF="www.slightlydifferentURL.com" TARGET="_top"><IMG SRC="http://www.url.com/images/image.gif" BORDER="0" WIDTH="468" HEIGHT="60" ALT="Text goes here"></A>


My question is what parts do you enter to trigger the click and sale? PHP-Nuke gives 2 fields. These commision programs have 3 parts to the link/image.

Easy enough, I usually download the image to my own site and enter the url to its location and the link to url where requested.

I can do that with the above code by just using the 2nd and the 3rd parts. But it doesn't seem to be working. It's like it needs that third part before it completely registers.

Forget it!
The most popular affilliate systems such as TradeDoubler require the inclusion of java as well for click tracking and updating the banner.
I have just been playing around with affilliate/banner ads and in particular, nukes system is completely inaequate in todays marketplace - not suprising since it has not been updated since medieval times.
Download phpAdsNew from Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login! install it and configure it then just drop the linking code which the software processes for you into your site.
This way you can use html banners as per nuke standard banners, affilliate banners and it supports most graphic file types including flash etc.....

Here is a rough insertion of the system working, you can see the rotating affilliate banner centre page just below the header (exisiting nuke banners have not been turned off yet in the header itself) Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!

The code that makes the whole thing 'happen' is generated by the software itself and depending on how you have configured the software will probably be as simple as this example which just needs dropping in header.php;
Code:
?>

<center>
<?php
 if (@include(getenv('DOCUMENT_ROOT').'/phpadsnew.inc.php')) {
        if (!isset($phpAds_context)) $phpAds_context = array();
        $phpAds_raw = view_raw ('zone:1', 0, '_blank', '', '0', $phpAds_context);
        echo $phpAds_raw['html'];
    }
?>
</center>

If you want it even simpler, you could just include the phpadsnew.inc.php file.

The banner system itself has literally hundreds of options, so I will not go into that here but the zippped distro gives extensive readme file in pdf format (Administrators Guide, Users Guide and Developers Guide)

All we need now is for some guru to see the potential of this FREE (till the author realises it is probably the best system out there) banner system and integrate it in such a way as it replaces the exisiting nuke banner system.

Let me know how you get on. Although there are lots of different options and settings in this software, the pdf files go through each one explaining what does what so don't worry if it tkaes you a few hours to get to grips with it.
If you have multiple sites, this kit also allows you to serve banners on them as well - all from the same install!

Wow, that is a whole Nuke size application to upload. I'm limited on space. I don't think that will be an option. Thanks though.

I guess I'm looking for just a modification to the Banner system to where there is just one big text box to insert the above code into.
