Can you give more context here? When you say multiple of n posts, what number? This will make it easier for us to replicate and then see if it can be resolved.
Hi @osioke and thanks for getting back to me.
For my forum, the settings look like this:
So, topics with 15 posts (or 30, 45, 60 etc) see two banners at the bottom.
That helps, but based on your settings
That is to be expected.
I can’t say this will be worked on, but as you have shared it here, it is definitely on our radar.
Yes, I agree, this is definitely expected behaviour based on my settings.
It would just be nice to be able to tweak the behaviour slightly (ie suppress one of the banners in this scenario). Thanks for noting this new idea.
This works great, however Is there any way to track house ads impressions (built in) or click through?
There is a setting
no ads for groups
It didn’t work for me previously, because I had dots in the group names. It was fixed, when I changed . to - in the group name like
Is there a way to make this house ads plugin mobile responsive? 728 x 90 banner looks great on desktop but doesn’t shrink to fit the page on mobile…
Yes, have a look at the Responsive Banner Ad examples that are given in this topic: House Ad Templates.
Jesus… I feel like this is 2003. So you have to use a special html template followed by additional CSS, which goes where?
Why can’t we just upload a standard banner image and provide a destination URL like the rest of the world?
That would’ve worked fine back in 2003. Today you have desktop and phones. If you want to have an ideal experience on both then you have to make even your advertisements responsive.
If you don’t care, then just put a banner.
The CSS can be added to either your site’s active theme, or to a theme component that you include on all of your site’s active themes.
What are the chances of this ‘ad after the first post then every N posts’ checkbox becoming a reality? Would be very useful, especially for quieter forums where some topics do not reach N posts!
Is it possible to get delivery statistics on House Ads? I’m not sure that they are saved, but it would be good to be able to find this for my advertisers.
I’ve got a (hopefully not too dumb) question about how to test a prospective advert
What is the best way to trial a House Ad without displaying it to the whole Forum?
While they can be restricted by category and group, it is tricky to use this for testing purposes.
If I restrict it to just my private admin Category, it still shows up on
If I restrict it for
everyone, nothing happens and everyone can see it.
If I restrict it for
trust_level_0, I can’t see it but
The only three ways that I can see to do my testing of the Ads, and I don’t like any of them:
- Do it late at night when nobody is using the site (ugggh)
- Make a group which is everyone except me and restrict it from them (ok for a once-off but quite an admin burden) and still visible to
- Use a staging instance to test it on (overkill)
Am I missing something?
Sounds like what you want is a staging site for testing.
I see how a staging site will resolve all the needs here, but your comment also hints at a possible feature for previewing ads which may or may not be on the roadmap yet. Good stuff!
I’m often guilty of treating #feature as #support. I don’t know a lot about that code, but a version of the way that we can test plugins seems like it would be hard to do for ads. It would be cool though!
Should I put in a separate feature request?
Sure thing! It would be helpful to have that as a tracking tool, I can’t speak to if it will be developed though as it may be harder to implement.
Is there a way that I can show only in-house ads to logged in users? I’ve excluded logged-in users from google ads, but I’d like to still show in-house ads to logged in users.
Additionally I’d like to hide in house ads from subscribers, but that can wait until I implement subscriptions
