BugZone: Nothing's perfect...

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Is 20 posts the cut-off? If so the same applies to me. :)

Cutoff is 30, not 20.

Don't know whether this is by design or a bug.
Inconsistent advertising banners.

Start here at my default start page search.php?search_id=active_topics.
Sometimes there's an ad across the top like 'Loco' or 'Lone Star', and sometimes not. If there is an ad, hit refresh and it's a bit of a lottery whether you get an ad after the page reloads or not.
At the top right where it says 'Page 1 of 6', open pages 2 through 6 in new tabs. Only one or two of those pages will have an ad, the others won't.
Here's the result of 3 tests just now:
Page 1 - Ad
2 - none
3 - none
4 - Ad
5 - none
6 -none

TEST 2
1 - none
2 -none
3 - none
4 - none
5 - Ad
6 - none

TEST 3
1 - Ad
2 - Ad
3 - none
4 - none
5 - none
6 - none

Your welcome,
don't forget to send some Karma my way :bow:

to me it seems better to offer rotating banner ads , Most of the merchants i deal with offer this on their site

thats what google ad words does
you plug in the code and google places the ad

you mean several rotating without a page refresh? pretty much not done at all anymore in the advertising industry. it doesn't know well if you even have the ad in the visible scope as the rotation moves, meaning it may show ads that are off page but costing a CPM impression. bad form.

these rotate per page hit, with some "weight" options available. and all advertisers who have CEO accounts get a nice link to view their ad performance in both views and clicks.

(i'm also working on a way to make this "self service" for placing one... but the commerce bit of it will take a while.)

i have confirmed that if you have adblock it does actually block any ads where the file isn't hosted on our server. some are, some aren't... but it looks like i'll have to move the ones that aren't.

Man, you're good!

Actually it was your suggestion on that other forum that I installed adblocker (Firefox). :beer3:

Just disabled adblocker for this site and all is fine again.

Sorry, :dragonchase: help, there's a dragon chasing me . . . .
