    Beitrag Wallpaper AD v2.0 - AdSenseExperts.com Exclusive

    vBulletin Wallpaper Ad v2.0

    What this mod does:
    This modification adds a so called Wallpaper AD to your forum.
    A Wallpaper AD consists of a Leaderboard Banner (728x90px) and
    a Skyscraper Banner (160x600px) combined into one AD (See screenshot below).
    This placement is exclusively released for AdsenseExperts.com.
    You are allowed to use this placement on your own forum, however republishing this
    modification on other website is only allowed with prior written consent by me.

    To fully use the potential of this AD Placement you should use an AD Server.
    I suggest using ((login for URL))

    The beauty of this placement in combination with an Ad Server is, that the space
    used by the leaderboard at the top of the forum is only filled when an AD is present.
    If you don't deliver a Wallpaper then your forum starts at the beginning of the page.
    By utilizing an Ad Server you can also use frequency capping which is very often
    requested by Advertisers buying Wallpaper Ads because of the high CPM that come
    with Wallpapers. Wallpaper prices are very often in the two digit CPM range.

    Installation:

    in template header find:

    Code:
    Please ((login for URL)) to see this code!
    add BEFORE:

    Code:
    Please ((login for URL)) to see this code!
    in template footer find:

    Code:
    Please ((login for URL)) to see this code!
    add BELOW:

    Code:
    Please ((login for URL)) to see this code!
    My forum is using a fixed width so this implementation is for a fixed width style.

    in template additional.css add:

    Code:
    Please ((login for URL)) to see this code!
    Like I said, my forum has a fixed width of 900px.
    I have positioned the wallpaper with a 5px space to my forum (see screenshot)

    You need to change the CSS Settings according to your Forum width and colors


    The following CSS is for a fluid style.

    I tested it with a standard vB4 Style that is not modified.
    You maybe need to make some changes to fit your style.

    Instead of the CSS above add the following CSS to the additional.css template:

    Code:
    Please ((login for URL)) to see this code!
    For a fixed width style it looks like this:




    How to Setup a Wallpaper Ad with DFP Small Business:



    1. Create a new Ad Unit for the leaderboard banner 728x90px
    2. Create a new Ad Unit for the skyscraper banner 160x600px
    3. Create a new Placement called Wallpaper
    4. Assign the 2 newly created Ad Units to the Wallpaper Placement
    5. Create a new Order and as Inventory Sizes add: 160x600, 728x90,
    6. Add the wallpaper placement to this order
    7. Set "Display creatives" to "As many as possible" (this is enabling roadblocking)
    8. Click save
    9. Add two new creatives to the Order, one for the leaderboard and one for the Skyscraper
    10. Go to your "Inventory" Tag and click on "Generate tags"
    11. Add both newly created Ad Units and click on Generate tags

    For the first Tag open the headinclude_bottom template and find:

    Code:
    Please ((login for URL)) to see this code!
    add the "Document header" JavaScript below

    then replace:

    Code:
    Please ((login for URL)) to see this code!
    and

    Code:
    Please ((login for URL)) to see this code!
    from the initial mode code (see above) and replace it with the corresponding
    "Document body" JavaScript Tag

    It can take up to one hour untill DFP starts to deliver the ADs so be patient, it works

    Feedback and optimization suggestions are very welcome!

    Today I released the Version 2.0 of my Wallpaper Modification for vBulletin 4.0.x

    This is a total code rewrite so I suggest everyone using an older Version to UPGRADE!
    The mod can be used on a fixed and a fluid style.

    I also explained how to set up a wallpaper ad using DFP Small Business as Ad Server.

    Feedback is very welcome

    Live demo until Christmas 2010: ((login for URL))

    The wallpaper shows to every visitors 5 times per hour.
    So if you want to see how it looks when the wallpaper
    is not shown, refresh the page 5 times.

    Get the firebug extension for Firefox and play with my CSS.
    Most likely it is done with a position change to relative and left to 750px
    But why this way?

    I forgot the closing DIVs for the footer template.
    The Mod is not updated to v2.0.1

    If you are using this mod please add the closing DIVs to your footer template.

    Have you tried this already on a fluid style?

    I have the problem that I get a horizontal scrollbar?

    I have tried it on a clean out of the box vbulletin fluid style.
    However I think I had to set the max. width to 95% or something.
    Can't remember. I don't use fluid styles anymore for a long time now.
    But it should work without scrollbars

    Okay thank you

    Tried this on a custom style. Set the doc_width so ~80%...

    It's now more or less working.

    Do you know which is the most used resolution?

    I optimized my forums to 1024x768 and I think that would work for most users.
    If you use Google Analytics you can check which resolution your visitors use the most.
    If you don't use ((login for URL)) I'd suggest either use it or some equivalent Statistics program
