  1. Yes, it's a standard feature of the excellent Revive Adserver.
  2. You need to look into CORS ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cross-origin_resource_sharing ) and how this is implemented on your platform, using your web server and the programs which you are using.
  3. No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is present on the requested resource. Origin 'http://dev9.wesrch.com' is therefore not allowed access.
  4. Security software (...) are notorious for reporting "false positives". You have to be careful how much serious notice you take of their often unfounded and hysterical alerts.
  5. hi V, at the time of writing, the available plugins are: Signup and Uploads. These are actively used on live site/s, re-priced according to helpful feedback, and will be actively developed and maintained going forward. The earlier revenue and referral plugins have been abandoned as too-much-hassle-for-the-limited-interest. The local issue which was motivating the development was solved via other means. HTH.
  6. hi Erik, no, I don't underestimate the spam problem, and spam is crap to deal with, wherever it turns up. I had some success with using a simple "answer a silly question", during registration, which kept most of the spam out of my fairly busy SMN, and we have over 7000 members now. It's not massive, but we're not getting spam like this. Maybe it's an idea...? Good work from the admins that you do have. Keep it up! R.
  7. This fellow is running at 382 million / month, perhaps this thread can help you? http://forum.revive-adserver.com/topic/3070-performance-questions/#comment-6556
  8. Looking at your graphic, this is exactly what Revive does! Looking at your specification (100,000 websites), maybe you want to write a script which can set that up for you. If you do that, then Revive would also take care of all the stats tracking, which presumably you also want... If you don't care about which site showed which ad, then you should be able to use the same invocation code on every website, but your stats will (obviously) be screwed. Otherwise, as Andrew pointed out, perhaps you need to modify Revive, (or write a plugin?), to do exactly what you require.
  9. You may want to read this link on base plugins here: http://forum.revive-adserver.com/topic/192-plugin-not-installed/#comment-6943
  10. Revive Adserver Signup / Registration plugin released. Enables administrators to create Advertisers and Publisher accounts in one step.

  11. This may seem obvious, but have you tried connecting to the database from the commandline using the EXACT same arguments? You might also read up on connecting mysql remotely, permissions etc., perhaps there are some clues there: https://www.rackspace.com/knowledge_center/article/mysql-connect-to-your-database-remotely
  12. well, first I slapped my forehead when I read your reply, then I went looking for other config options and the image tag looks highly promising! Thanks for the tip, Andrew :)
  13. I have several WordPress sites which I self-host and they have no problems hosting Revive ads. However, I have a number of users who are running their WordPress sites on a wordpress.com *hosted* server. That is their WordPress install is hosted by wordpress.com directly. The reason the Revive calls do not function on these sites is that Wordpress explicitly disables ALL javascript on their own servers, for their own reasons. My sole solution to this so far, has been to recommend my users to move to a different hosting provider. Naturally this is not ideal, and most users balk at the idea. Does
  14. Self-hosted wordpress sites should be no problem for revive. It works fine with mine. However, if you are using a wordpress.com HOSTED wordpress installation, then the explicitly disable ALL javascript on their own servers. You need to move to a different hosting provider, or maybe use a different tag, if indeed this is the problem...?
  15. There's an irregular amount of spam on the site, admins need to spend a little more time cleaning up, or you need more admins :)
  16. I don't see any docs. describing this process, (how to permit multiple partners to badge, or wrap, a revive installation within their own site, or iframe maybe?). I'm thinking it might have to do with suppressing headers and so forth, but I'm groping in the dark a bit here. Any chance of a hint or two...?
  17. You need to read about affiliate publishers in the very good Revive documentation on websites: http://documentation.revive-adserver.com/display/DOCS/Websites
  18. Got it. I need to enable PHP execution within ads to enable magic macros. I believe I've seen this described is a security risk somewhere, so am not so happy about doing this on the live server without more research. Nevertheless, thanks, Ian for your assist with the clickurl parameter! :)
  19. Thanks for that tip, Ian. That got me a lot closer. I have inserted that into the banner invocation code, and used both Generic and Revive server types: and set Invocation Defaults to be Generic (or Revive) under the Banner Delivery Settings page. Neither Generic nor Revive server types seem to trigger the invocation code to do anything but replace {clickurl} with a blank string. This feels very close, but I'm probably still doing something simple (wrong)... :\
  20. It may not be exactly what you are looking for, but this combination of signup and referral plugins might be a start. http://plugins.rfi.net/downloads/rfi-revive-adserver-signup-plugin/http://plugins.rfi.net/downloads/rfi-revive-adserver-referral-plugin/NB. I've posted the links like this, because otherwise the forum post parser munges the links. HTH.
  21. I've noticed a lot of spam on the forum recently, DVD-copying and Playstation rubbish and the like. Perhaps an admin could cut a swathe through it all...?
  22. That's right, Ian. Where the invocation code from booking looks something like this: <ins class="bookingaff" data-aid="428279" data-target_aid="425828" data-prod="banner" data-width="468" data-height="60" data-banner_id="13866"> <a href="//www.booking.com?aid=425828">Booking.com</a> </ins> <script type="text/javascript"> // some javascript stuff </script>
