How long for manual validation?

    Hi,

    Just signed up to the ad network, I'm unable to automatically validate the site, so I'm just wondering how long it will take for my account to be manually validated?

    Its uncomfortable to be sitting here linking to other sites whilst my site isn't benifitting lol :(

    Thanks

    There is no manual validation. What's the URL? I should be able to at least tell you why it's not validating for you.

    No, I don't mean with the link command... I mean it literally. The page has no links ON it. :)

    lol I don't get it.

    Do you mean outbound links? The ad-network links ARE appearing for me!

    What can I do to get it to validate?

    Site is www.extremecarvideo.com. Put both files in the public_html directory. Added the links to the footer.php directory. Your banners are showing up in my footer of every page on my site. But yet, it fails auto validate.

    And an "aside question". Does every feature on Digitalpoint.com require a seperate registration? I've had to register 3 times already for 3 features, including this forum!

    All your links go to a separate domain. If you set your base URL without the www, it should work.

    I get the following when I try to create my ads:
    "Site failed automatic validation as of 2004-09-22 (make sure URL and site type is correct - if everything is correct, it may require manual validation)"

    my url is www.2search4.co.uk , I have placed the text ad on every page (at the bottom of the left navigation panel)
    Thanks

    It doesn't like that you use a ' instead of a " in your a href tags.
