  2. We've used Revive to serve ads in email for several years with success - my question relates to the statistics. Anyone care to guess what percentage of impressions / clicks that Revive reports are from non-humans like Spam filters, virus scanners, firewalls, etc.? Proof: One of the ad units has had no banners assigned in well over a year, but consistently reports ad impressions at a higher quantity than the number of email opens. I'm assuming that fake impressions are recorded by Revive from spam filters before the email is even delivered to the user. Can anyone confirm this? Past 7 days stats from Mailchimp and Revive: 340,012 Successful email deliveries 166,893 Total email opens 366,865 ad impressions (ad unit that was filled 100%) 742 clicks (100% filled ad unit) 216,074 ad impressions (no banners assigned) 0 clicks (empty ad unit) Our standard email tag looks like this: <a href="http://revive.mydomainname.com/revive/www/delivery/ck.php?zoneid=60&amp;cb=01171117" target="_blank"> <img src="http://revive.mydomainname.com/revive/www/delivery/avw.php?zoneid=60&amp;cb=01171117"></a>
  3. Third Party Click Tracking Advice

    Hello, I was wondering if anyone could point me to the right direction for third party click tracking. When creating a HTML banner I place the third parties invocation codes in and then normally select from the list of companies to enable click tracking. I have gotten a new client that has provided me with a third party not listed. So when I run Revive reports, the clicks come back as 0. Is there anyway to track 3rd parties that are not listed? A plugin? Anything? Please advise. Thanks! Example invocation code from GTS: <ins class='dcmads' style='display:inline-block;width:300px;height:600px' data-dcm-placement='N7384.12341875.MEDICALL/B10811303.146585942' data-dcm-rendering-mode='iframe' data-dcm-https-only data-dcm-resettable-device-id='' data-dcm-app-id=''> <script src='https://www.googletagservices.com/dcm/dcmads.js'></script> </ins>
  4. hi i was just curious, how can i submit changes to the project? i wrote a new CSS that makes the current design look more modern without changing too much. all that is needed is to include the CSS/and JS files in the content-header.html and thats it. it overwrites the old look with a modern one. i have a demo here that you can check out: supertechdude.com/adserver user: guest password: guest123
  5. Can't get campaign total limit working

    Hi @ivela, Just to confirm your testing process: 1. Fire up a browser, and try and view the banner. After 5 impressions, you should no longer see the banner. 2. Close the browser. 3. Fire up the browser, and try to view the banner again in a new session. You should now see the banner again. After 5 impressions, you should no longer see the banner. You now have 10 impressions in 24 hours. 4. Do steps #2 and #3 twice more. You now have 20 impressions in 24 hours. 5. Close the browser, and fire it up again. Even though you are in a new session, you should now not see the banner again, because you are at the maximum impressions. 6. Wait 24 hours, and all the counters will now reset. Or - are you assuming that only the session counter is being reset? :-)
  6. Individual text under a banner does not work

    Hi @tobean, Thanks for this - and sorry for not responding sooner. You are correct, the Async tag does not support this. The page that is linked in the text you have quoted is https://documentation.revive-adserver.com/display/DOCS/Tag+Settings, and if you scroll down to the "Show text below banner" option, you can see that only JS, SPC, local mode and XML-RPC tag support this. @Matteo Beccati is definitely the person to confirm this, as he's the async tag expert, but I think that there were "technical reasons" (yes, I'm waving my hands here) where the feature wasn't (can't be?) supported in async tags. I might be wrong though - but as far as I know, we have no immediate plans to support this.
  7. User and adding new banners

    Hi @femdom, Okay - so, in that case, no - you can't allow an advertiser user to create new banners.
  8. Hi @cema0110, It looks like you are using Revive Adserver with a hosts file entry to perform IP resolution, based on "revive" being the domain name the service is running on. I am not sure, but it might be that Revive Adserver won't work like this, because it's somehow recognising that this is not a valid domain name - Revive Adserver does use the domain name to help manage configuration files. I might be wrong, but this could be related. Could you please try on a real domain? (The localhost domain is okay, if you're just installing and testing locally).
  9. Running Revive Adserver v4.0.1 on PHP7

    Hi @karl-pogi, Is the UI broken everywhere, or just in the parts where it's displaying the banner you added in the UI?
  10. Product Updates Info

    Hi @jsheedy, I really like this idea. I haven't thought about how to do it, so no idea how hard it is, but it's a great idea! Could you please create a ticket for this on GitHub?
  11. Doubleclick tracking without a banner

    Hi @mgh, Not as far as I'm aware. In order to record clicks in Revive Adserver, there must be a banner ID in the system, against which the clicks are recorded. So, you could potentially set up a dummy banner, and then use the click recording URL for the banner as a way of recording clicks, even without having the banner delivered or clicked on (e.g. use an external system to trigger the click recording), but there nevertheless needs to be a banner in Revive Adserver for this to work.
  12. Displaying ads to all vs. new visitors

    Hi @scott.huish, Not as core feature with no additional effort, no. The override campaign type is ideal for setting up banners that are shown to users, no matter what else is going on - but then, naturally, you need to set such campaigns up so that they stop showing (stop overriding everything else) once your initial "new visitor" stage is "over". It's possible to use capping to limit the number of times a banner is seen - which can be once, of course, but that doesn't relate to any specific location (e.g. page). You could, of course, then set up a separate banner for every page, and use delivery rules to limit the banner to only appear on the specific page, and then cap the banner to once per viewer - but that's a rather cumbersome way of achieving the outcome! Probably the most efficient solution that comes to mind would be to track the "new visitor" stage externally from Revive Adserver (e.g. as part of your website code), and to then pass in this information as a paramter with each call to Revive Adserver, and then use delivery rules based on that in your override campaign's banner(s), so that they only deliver when the visitor is "new" to the page. HTH.
  13. Passback tags and retargeting

    Hi @Sari, There's a core option in the advance zones tab that provides an option to waterfall to another zone, in the event that a blank impression would otherwise be delivered. No core RTB or retargeting options at this stage, but I am aware of at least of a couple of 3rd parties offering commercial plugins for these.
  14. Product Updates Info

    A seemingly trivial thought, but can tech requirements be added to listed update descriptions on the Product Updates page under the Configuration tab. The page lists off my current environment with php and apache versions and it would be nice if the available upgrade descriptions included what they required. Even with the possibility of a red flag when your current environment doesn't meet these requirements. I just spent some time setting up an upgrade it turned out I can't do because I didn't look up this info (RTFM I know). It would be a nice to have this up front as it isn't even listed in the notes link provided in this section.
  15. Passback tags and retargeting

    Hey guys, Is anyone aware of a solution for passbacks in Revive? I'm not talking about the zone passbacks which is a totally different thing. Meaning that if an empty tag is served it then calls for the second tag in line, "waterfall". in addition, what about RTB (realtime bidding), retargeting in the sense of ages, gender, content and etc...? help is appreciated, Sari Jaber
  16. Is there a way to show certain ads to new visitors to a page only, not a universal setting, but on a case by case basis? Thanks.
  17. Can Revive track a Doubleclick tag (clicks) without a banner? TIA
  18. Running Revive Adserver v4.0.1 on PHP7

    Hello everyone. I did all that checks according to @andrewatfornax, but seem to not solve anything. It was working well, then the UI suddenly broke after a certain time. Was just playing around with it and trying to post an add via iframe. Then after a refresh the UI seemed off. I'm using it on nginx. No adblocker, db is good, using on SSL. Like I said, everything was working well, until it didn't. It still works, it's just the UI. I did the maintenance checks as well, according to the system, it has no errors whatsoever. You are currently using Revive Adserver v4.1.1 running on nginx 1.13.5, PHP 7.1.9 and MySQL 5.5.5-10.1.28-MariaDB-1~xenial.
  19. Hi, any news on this? Mine was working fine also then started breaking.
  20. Hi! I've found the following hint in the documentation: "Text below image: Optional text that Revive Adserver will display below the banner creative. This is a quick and easy way to add additional text to a banner without editing the banner creative to include the text. Please note: Only some invocation tags support the text below image option, and you may need to enable the "show text below banner" setting when generating the tag for the text to appear." I guess the text below banner option does not work with the asynchrous js tag? Why? Will this be possible in one of the next versions? Best regards tobean
  21. We are using Revive to serve banners in our website and our mobile applications. We are trying to limit the impressions given to one user. In order to accomplish that we are using the campaign limits. The idea is that a user can see a limit of 5 campaign impressions in one day but also we want to be able to set a maximum of 20 campaign impressions for every user for all the campaign time. So we are putting a limit of 5 impressions to the session limit and 20 to the total limit. Then we are putting to reset the counter every 24 hs hours. Please, see the screenshot attached. The "session limit" is working. Revive is not returning more than 5 impressions to the users every 24 hs. But the "total limit" doesn't work. Revive is returning more than 20 impressions in total to the users.
  22. User and adding new banners

    Hi: It is an advertiser with these permissions
  23. The best plugin for Geotargeting ... GeoIP2 ?

    Hi @ZISSA, Sorry, no updates yet. The legacy GeoIP databases are still the only ones supported.
  24. User and adding new banners

    Hi @femdom, That depends on the type of user. Are we talking about an advertiser account level user?
  25. Add user with limited privileges

    Hi @adhero, Yes, I read the topics, and do my best to answer them all, when I can! No, you can't create an advertiser-level account that has ONLY statistics access. Even if you don't allow the user all of the optional permissions at the advertiser level, there are still certain actions that they are allowed to perform beyond just viewing statistics.
