Add adbrite ads inside kunena forum was created by cinemagrounds
Hi,
I am trying to add adbrite ads in between the post and its replies. Earlier i was successful in getting the google ads displayed, however whenever google ad doesnt get displayed i want the adbrite ad to be displayed.
My website is:
www.cinemagrounds.com

How can i achieve this.
Earlier, i achieved this by adding the following code in view.php file of the template.
// Google AdSense ---> start
if ( $mmm == 1 ) {
echo '<div align="center">'."\n";
echo '<script type="text/javascript"><!--' . "\n";
echo 'google_ad_client = "pub-5023421363133063";' . "\n";
echo "/* my second ad link unit 120x90, created 4/22/10 */\n";
echo 'google_ad_slot = "0632638656";' . "\n";
echo "google_ad_width = 468;\n";
echo "google_ad_height = 60;\n";
echo "//-->\n";
echo "</script>\n";
echo '<script type="text/javascript"' . "\n";
echo 'src=" pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js ">' . "\n";
echo "</script>\n";
echo "</div>\n";
}
// Google AdSense ---> end




Now i want to add adbrite code to the kunena forum, how can i do this:
Here is the ad code that i got from Adbrite:

<!-- Begin: AdBrite, Generated: 2010-07-20 20:20:24 -->
<script type="text/javascript">
var AdBrite_Title_Color = '0000FF';
var AdBrite_Text_Color = '000000';
var AdBrite_Background_Color = 'FFFFFF';
var AdBrite_Border_Color = 'CCCCCC';
var AdBrite_URL_Color = '008000';
try{var AdBrite_Iframe=window.top!=window.self?2:1;var AdBrite_Referrer=document.referrer==''?document.location:document.referrer;AdBrite_Referrer=encodeURIComponent(AdBrite_Referrer);}catch(e){var AdBrite_Iframe='';var AdBrite_Referrer='';}
</script>
<script type="text/javascript">document.write(String.fromCharCode(60,83,67,82,73,80,84));document.write(' src=" ads.adbrite.com/mb/text_group.php?sid=17...='+AdBrite_Referrer+ '" type="text/javascript">');document.write(String.fromCharCode(60,47,83,67,82,73,80,84,62));
<div><a target="_top" href=" www.adbrite.com/mb/commerce/purchase_for...opid=1702810&afsid=1 " style="font-weight:bold;font-family:Arial;font-size:13px;">Your Ad Here

Hi,
have you read our documentation about this docs.kunena.com/index.php/Module_Positions

you can do that without modifing core Kunena file. You need to create new modules in Joomla backend and publish them in the positions you see in our doc. kunena_msg_1, kunena_msg_2 ...

Thankyou for your reply.

Yes i Did see that document. If you see my website, i have used the same concept to place google ads to the left side of the template. (Goggle ads to left of the template). Also the template i have used is a free template that has positions only at the left.

however What i am trying now, is to get the adbrite ads inside Kunena forum article itself.
What I mean here , once I post of article, I want adbrite ad to appear within the article itself.
Is that possible.

for example: Look at this article in the following link, where they have done this:
www.dentalforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=5565

here in this article, they have article and to the right side it also shows the google ads. Instad of google ads i want adbrite ads to appear. What would be the syntax for that and where would i place such a code.

now I understnd what you want to do, this is doable with little change in code but question is: You want to show these ads only in first post or in all posts(reply also)? You can add google ads only 3 per page (dont know for adbrite), if you have Topic with 10 replay per page there will be 10 ads??

For now i would like to have the ads,..coming only on the first post of the article...
would like to see them all over the page. this way my page will still look good and will be accroding to the standards of google adsense.

i thought google adsense allowas 3 ad units and 3 link units on each page...
adbrite allows 3 ad units per page..

Basically, i am fresher. I am just exploring on this things. This is what i have understood reading online about adsense and abrite ads...

Hi,

<td colspan = "2" valign = "top">
<div class = "msgtext"><?php echo $msg_text; ?>
<div style="float:right; width:300px; margin-left:10px;">
<!-- Begin: Message Module Positions -->
<?php
if (JDocumentHTML::countModules('kunena_adbrite_'.$mmm))
{
?>
<div class = "kunena_adbrite_<?php echo $mmm; ?>">
<?php
$document = &JFactory::getDocument();
$renderer = $document->loadRenderer('modules');
$options = array('style' => 'xhtml');
$position = 'kunena_adbrite_'.$mmm;
echo $renderer->render($position, $options, null);
?>
</div>
<?php
}
?>
<!-- Finish: Message Module Positions -->
</div>
</div>


<?php
if (!isset($msg_closed))
{
?>

Insert RED code above to message.php from default_ex template.(should be line 99)

Then create new module in joomla backend, in text area insert your code from Adbrite and publish that module in position "kunena_adbrite_1" and adbrite ads will appear in all topics first messages.

Hi,
I added the code in red,to messgae.php file.

Created a new position in templatedetails.xml, with title kunena_adbrite1

so far so good.

I also created new module, of type Custom HTML, but seems like HTML editor is removing all the code of adbrite. only the code shown in red is visible.
I also tired to enter this text as plain text, but it didnt work.

</script>
<script type="text/javascript">document.write(String.fromCharCode(60,83,67,82,73,80,84));document.write(' src=" ads.adbrite.com/mb/text_group.php?sid=17...='+AdBrite_Referrer+ '" type="text/javascript">');document.write(String.fromCharCode(60,47,83,67,82,73,80,84,62));

Hi, before create a module go to Joomla Configuration and disable WYSIWYG editor, then create and publish module in kunena_adbrite_1 (you have writed kunena_adbrite1 <- check this) position.

After saving you module you can enable editor in joomla config.
