I know, everybody hates ads. But you dislike to pay for something too. I would like to give everything for free, but it's impossible because costs are too much. If you know how Google ads work, you know how to help. It's on you. I can detect income by country, so... Australia rocks now! Thanks

The Core plugin for banner advertisements

The banner plugin is part of the core plugins, but you need to install it at first (it was active by default in the older version).

You can add banners to your site 2 ways in version 2 (there was only one way in the older version).

Banner shortcode

This way is limited and it needs be supported by theme (of course, if you use shortcode menus, you can use menu manager)

Examples:

{BANNER: campaign=e107promo}

Banner menu

Add banner menu to desired menu area and don't forget to set its configuration (otherwise nothing is displayed)

Caption Text displayed as the caption (depends of tablestyle of your menu area)
Campaigns to show in menu You can select one or more campaigns
Number of banners to show Numbers of banner, you would suppose that 1 is the default, no by default all are displayed
Width Banner width; always set it to the width of your banners
How to show the campaigns? How banners are rendered. Without tablestyle, with one or more menus etc.
