When you add a banner, make sure to add it to the 468 x 50 group (this is a group name not a dimension)

Where a banner supposes to appear at the top or at the bottom?

i am having the same problem, all folders and files are writable, i dont get any errors, i turned off the orignal one, the new one is in the group 468x50, the banner reports clicks but its still displaying the oscommerence one?

 

there is a section in the knowledge base but it seems very vague

http://www.oscommerce.info/kb/osCommerce/A..._Tool/Tools/148

 

it talks about setting the group and code to edit but dosent say anythink about what file the code is in or should be in?

make sure your banner is at 468x50 or 468x60 size.

Go to your Admin and change it under banners...you should be able to upload it...if it's too big it will not work, and maybe possibly too small (make it 468x60-this is standard size) Should Work then.

thanx agian for the reply, but still not working...... :'(

 

i deleted all banners but mine, i resized the img to 468x50 its in the 468x50 group. i can access the correct img from the path that the banner manager shows the banner is saved at but then i refresh the page and the img that is on the page is the oscommerce.gif thats loacated in the images folder?

 

i just have no clue why it wont show it? everything seems right?

sory sorry .. found a mistake .. :)

 

i added a new group 468x60 and new banner .. what i forgot was that in footer.php was written old group

 

Displaying Random Banners

 

Random banners can be displayed by requesting which banner group a banner should be selected from, and can be done with:

 

 

 

<?php

  echo tep_display_banner('dynamic', '468x50');

?>

 

just change it to your desired group ...

 

simple ha? :D

 

but if you are so kind, please advise me how to move banner from footer to header instead of oscommerce.gif in left top corner?

 

thanx

You guys are talking about the banner at the bottom right? There are two oscommerce.gif banners....top and bottom which are located in two different directories...I can't think of them off the top, but there are two of them. The top banner you have to either rename the gif to oscommerce.gif if you change it or change some attributes in the config.php file I think. Well, and if you are trying to see the banners at the bottom...turn off any Norton or Norton Internet Security software (don't turn it off, but turn off the "ad blocking" function and you will then be able to view your bottom advertisement banner).

 

I hope some of this helps...if it makes sense. I'll get back to you on the details of exactly where they are located, but in the meantime do a search in the forums for "banner attributes" or "banner location" and you can find more details from there.
