I needed a method to get some banners going on one of my sites, so I tried http://www.phpadsnew.com/ which is a VERY robust system. Alas, it seemed to cause severe peformance issues at my host so I ditched it. Instead a buddy of mine came up with this cute little ditty. Feel free to expand on it. In fact, you should since it doesn't use GL functions in any way and the DB stuff should NOT be the template code. It is currently installed at http://www.dctriclub.com Right now all it does is display the image and update the table to record how many times the image was seen. Improvements might include:
  • count the number of clicks the ad gets
  • a little interface to administer the ad links/files, turning ads on/off, upload files,etc
  • maybe use bars like the Poll result bars to show privileged people (advertisers?) how many times the ad was seen/clicked on
Code is here: http://www.northredoubt.org/glbannerhack.txt

All times are EST. The time is now 04:41 am.
