I have a banner.php that has the code to rotate banners of a specific size. So, in my PHP block, I would like to rotate 88x31 banners. These banners need to be called from a txt file (ie - # URL | target=\"_blank\" (1 = Yes, 0 = No) | off-site image (1 = Yes, 0 = No) | image | Alt text) The include that needs to be on the php to call from banner.php is: Now, I am having problems creating a block to do this. I can\'t make it a normal block because the above include wont register. Any suggestions? A link to the script I am using is http://abledesign.com/programs/banner.php

Or another suggestion to have three banners show in a block that rotates among 50+.

Have you tried adding the php code to lib-custom.php and then making the block a php block that calls the banner ad function?

I\'ve tried something like that. The part that screws it up with that is; it has its own php script to pull up a banner from a txt file. Then their is the php include which you would implement calling up a banner to a php page. You would use a couple php includes to call up as many as you wanted. What is everyone else using for rotating hotlink 88x31 banners?

qwikstreet, Take banner.php minus the php tags and add it to the end of lib-custom.php. Then create a function for each size of ad you wish to run like this: function phpblock_Ad125x125() { $retval = get_banner( \"125x125\" ); return $retval; } Then create a phpblock that calls phpblock_Ad125x125. That should do it.
