    I searched the forum but couldn't find an answer to this. How can I set up the ad network on a phpbb forum? I'm trying to ad the ad code to the overall_footer.tpl . Can someone else that has done this please give me a quick summary. Thanks.

    Just add:
    {AD_NETWORK}
    for 1 ad

    or:
    {AD_NETWORK} {AD_NETWORK2} {AD_NETWORK3} {AD_NETWORK4}{AD_NETWORK5}
    for 5

    Make sure it is before </html>

    I am presuming you have setup the ad_network.php, ad_network_ads.txt and includes/page_tail.php files.

    Open the folder includes and find the file page_tail.php. Using the find function in a text editor look for:

    $template->pparse('overall_footer');

    Before this add:

    include ($phpbb_root_path . 'ad_network.php');
    $template->assign_vars(array('AD_NETWORK' => $ad_network[0]));
    unset ($ad_network);

    include ('../ad_network.php');
    $template->assign_vars(array('AD_NETWORK' => $ad_network[0]));
    unset ($ad_network);

    Yeah if you wanna show 5 you need:

    include ($phpbb_root_path . 'ad_network.php');
    $template->assign_vars(array('AD_NETWORK' => $ad_network[0]));
    unset ($ad_network);include ($phpbb_root_path . 'ad_network.php');
    $template->assign_vars(array('AD_NETWORK2' => $ad_network[0]));
    unset ($ad_network);include ($phpbb_root_path . 'ad_network.php');
    $template->assign_vars(array('AD_NETWORK3' => $ad_network[0]));
    unset ($ad_network);include ($phpbb_root_path . 'ad_network.php');
    $template->assign_vars(array('AD_NETWORK4' => $ad_network[0]));
    unset ($ad_network);include ($phpbb_root_path . 'ad_network.php');
    $template->assign_vars(array('AD_NETWORK5' => $ad_network[0]));
    unset ($ad_network);

    You can shorten that if you want down to:

    include ($phpbb_root_path . 'ad_network.php');
    include ($phpbb_root_path . 'ad_network.php');
    include ($phpbb_root_path . 'ad_network.php');
    include ($phpbb_root_path . 'ad_network.php');
    include ($phpbb_root_path . 'ad_network.php');
    $template->assign_vars(array('AD_NETWORK' => $ad_network[0]));
    $template->assign_vars(array('AD_NETWORK2' => $ad_network[1]));
    $template->assign_vars(array('AD_NETWORK3' => $ad_network[2]));
    $template->assign_vars(array('AD_NETWORK4' => $ad_network[3]));
    $template->assign_vars(array('AD_NETWORK5' => $ad_network[4]));
    unset ($ad_network);

    No problem

    Shawn, is there any reason to change the code if I already have it setup?

    No, the end result is the same.
