    Hi, I just signed up for the ad coop (and your forum :) ), because I think it sounds like a real good idea!

    No problems with the installation, and it seemed like it was running smooth..

    Until I tried to view some polls...

    Got this error message:

    Everything worked fine after I removed all of the ad modifications..SEMrush

    Not really sure to be honest... are you viewing the poll with the normal viewtopic.php URL? I just tested it in a little stock 2.0.8 phpBB environment I have setup, and the ad network seems to be working fine on polls...

    Well, without being able to actually access it and debug it, I'm not sure if there is much I would be able to look at. The ad network does not do any sort of SQL queries, so it seems strange that it would get a SQL error because of it. Also, it's rather difficult to debug since I can't get it to *not* work on my test phpBB environment...

    Hm, I'll try to install it again..

    I may have overlooked something (but I believe I did everything correct the last time..)

    One more question: Is it possible to get the ads to open in a new browser window?
    That would have been much better.

    It will be a future option (opening in a new window).

    And I didn't do anything wrong with the last installation, I promise.. ;) :D

    It was weird that it did only affect the polls, and with a SQL error.... :confused:

    We'll see how it works now, both with the SERPs and the polls..

    Thanks for making this free Digital! :)
