rotating banner (12 posts)

    I need to have a rotating banner at the bottom of my pages (I have people who paid for a year of banner ads on the original site--that agreed to continue when I changed the format to blogs.)

    I was using entropy banner which comes with CPanel. I tried the exec cmd function, since that didn't work, (since it is a perl program running in PHP), I tried to run using the include function...then the virtual function, but no success.

    If someone could direct me on how to either get this to work, or how to get a rotating banner program to work with MU I would appreciate it.

    THANKS!

    I use randex to rotate AdSense ads with the multiple users I have on my blog - should work...just a php and one text file that you add to the theme folder and then point to it in index.php or sidebar.php or footer.php

    Another one you can use is phpAdsNew. It allows you to produce reports and whatnot for your clients. You can also set rates of display if you want.

    phpAdsNew rocks! I use this on many of my sites & the advertisers love it too... plus it's free.

    There should be no problem have it display as an include - I'm doing this right now w/ all my footerlinks. I created footerlinks.php & am dropping the include into each footer.php for every theme. If/when I want to add a banner, I can just add the code to footerlinks.php, but for now I just wanted a way for people to get back to the main site...

    Where do you put footerlinks.php and how do you include it in footer.php?

    Here's an example from one theme's footer.php:

    <?php wp_footer(); ?>
    <?php include("http://www.yourdomain.com/footerlinks.php"); ?>
    </body>
    </html>

    As well you could put something into wp-blog-header.php and it will show on all blogs of your site.

    Agreed but then you run into placement issues. Spam Karma 2 does this and it looks horrible in some themes.

    I still don't get it, I use PHPAdsNew and have create code for banner "<?php
    if (@include(getenv('DOCUMENT_ROOT').'/ad/phpadsnew.inc.php')) {
    if (!isset($phpAds_context)) $phpAds_context = array();
    $phpAds_raw = view_raw ('', 2, '', '', '0', $phpAds_context);
    echo $phpAds_raw['html'];
    }
    ?>
    "

    So....How must I suppose to do.
