When I go to add banner it takes me to add new page, I must be missing something? The add new page just has custom fields area, do I need to create a custom field or how do I set up banners? Thanks
Hello Tim, To add a banner go to Theme Options >Advertising Setup >Banners >Add Banner
Hi Josh, Thanks for the response. I put in image html code in the banner code section, and the image didn’t show up, the only thing that showed up was the sample banner image. I’ve also added the banner in the media section it just doesn’t show up.
@Tim Sound like you have enabled Sell Space.There are two options to add banners: 1.Advertising Setup >Sell Space -Allows you to add banner from frontend (Use the shortcode [SELLSPACE] to display advertising options within a page.) 2.Advertising Setup >Banner -Allows you to add banner from admin section. In your case above you have enabled Sell Space.Turn off Sell Space for the banner you added to appear
Thanks! That was the problem, I had sell space turned on so it wasn’t showing the banner. Everything works now though.
You’re welcome.Have a great weekend 🙂

how can I as the admin use my custom banners with the “Sell Space” thing? Ich want to offer my customers to book ads but I also want to use the banner areas myself. How can I do that?
The other problem is that I want to use google ads in the 768×90 Premium Leaderboard Area.
AND: I want to translate everything but a lot of words or texts aren´t available in the language setup.
Can u help?
Also the link of the ad banners added via frontend doesn´t work. would u recommedn updating to 8.8 to solve the problems?
you need to set the link to your created advertising page in the admin under general setup -> content -> page and button links.
so I have to go to that page and button links and set Premium Ads like I had?
This is where the link goes to after klicking:
@Lars Currently you can only add an image as a banner if using ‘Sell space’.If using sellspace you can add a banner under My Account >Premium Advertising >My Banners >Upload Banner.
Hey Josh, that works and it also shows the banner but the link does not work.
I’m following this and hope for improvements, discovered the same thing that something is wrong with the link.
