Generate funding through CodeFund - now integrated into the discourse-adsplugin

(Eric Berry) #1

When you install or update the discourse-adplugin, you will see a new advertising option.

CodeFund (formerly Code Sponsor) is an ethical advertising platform for the developer community. What does this mean?

  • Relevant, unobtrusive ads
  • No cookies
  • No remarketing
  • No profiling
  • 100% open source

We have always been huge fans of Discourse and recognize that their communities are often developer-based. We invite all developer-based installs of Discourse to sign up for CodeFund and try this plugin out. Together we can continue to help open source thrive.

You can register your Discourse community here:

Stick to the bottom banner - Independent ad option?

Can you please investigate? Thanks!

I’m inputting my property id (168), but it sais:

codefund_property_id: Value doesn’t match the required format.

What am I doing wrong?


(Rafael dos Santos Silva) #7

Property ID looks like a UUID using hexa symbols:

(Diego Barreiro) #8

Yeah, I’ve already checked the file
However, the property ID we got is just an integer

(Eric Berry) #9

We migrated it to use integers. I will submit a PR to this plugin.

@coderberry I have just updated the plugin
However, I don’t think ads are working properly:

As you can see, there’s a big blank space there

(Eric Berry) #12

Hi Diego,

We are working on a fix for this which will be released next week.
