  1. Can't be done officially. As a hack, I use addresses of this form in the email field: name1@web.com>,<name2@web.com Though you'll have to get it done manually in the data base
  2. Hi all: Everything I do for avoiding adblockers does not seem to work. Using iframe or asynchronous invocation codes does not work, at least not with Adguard for Firefox. I also tried creating a subdomain so as to avoid getting tracked due to the "www/delivery" bit, but that did not help either. I also modified file names. Has anybody achieved any success with current ad blockers?

    How To Serve Responsive Ads?

    We did a CSS-only version of Clove's approach. Say, for 728px-wide banners: .some-id img {width: 100%; max-width: 728px; height: auto; max-height: 728px;}
  4. I just tried mixing different types of invocations and that does help. I have also tried single page call, but somehow how that does not work on my page. I'm wondering if using two zones instead of one zone with two banners would help.
  5. Hi: Too often I see ads not showing (maybe one in 10 times), and there are no errors in the log file. We show about 400k impressions/month with about 15 contract campaigns, mostly totally uncapped, except for some country geotargeting. There is also a remnant campaign with plenty of ads. Pages typically consist of one ad from a zone and two ads from another zone, all using Javascript invocation tags. Typically if an ad does not show it is the latest in the HTML, but sometimes the latest two are not shown. The first one, which belongs to a different zone, seems to be always show. Both zones have plenty of uncapped ads and their zone probabilities look fine and add to 100% (remnants have 0.61% priority). Any ideas?
  6. Is it possible for Revive to log and show delivery statics based on the source parameter? I'm trying to have a view of ads shown at different sections without having to add more zones. If not, is there a way to do a similar thing? Thanks
  7. I have converted from a old phpAdsNew install that used this and cannot seem to find how to do it with Revive Adserver (v4)? Tried the solution in this post but was not able to make it work.

    Puzzling delivery and priorities

    Finally managed to bet it working reasonably by multiplying the contracted views in contract campaigns by a factor of 1000. I guess I'll be gradually dropping zeros at some point.

    Puzzling delivery and priorities

    I've tried several days. Although I can understand it can take days for an accurate prediction, I definitely cannot understand even for a very ballpark estimation. Advertisers do not have weeks. I started from stratch with revive v4 and just a zone, two campaigns (one contract and one remnant), and the one contract banner has a priority of 0.5% percent without any impressions yet.

    Revive 3.2.5 and PHP 5.4.45

    Ideally yes, but I depend on other software that does not run on 5.5 I believe all of those modules are listed in the PHP report

    Revive 3.2.5 and PHP 5.4.45

    I did, but I assumed those would be for Revive v4, and v.3.2.5 installed and worked OK with PHP 5.4 Is it not possible at all to run v3.2.6 on PHP 5.4?
  12. Hi: I upped my PHP version from 5.3 to 5.4.45 and now my Revive 3.2.5 admin page is not working ( Fatal error: Call to undefined method MDB2_Error::setFetchMode() in /home/[PATH]/lib/pear/DB/QueryTool/Query.php on line 299 ). Can I make it work with PHP 5.4? Thanks in advance

    Puzzling delivery and priorities

    I'd be grateful for some help on this
  14. Hi all: After many years with phpAdsNew (and a failed tryout of OpenX), I installed Revive 3.2.5 (don't have the PHP version for v4 just yet) from scratch for testing. I have two 728x90px zones and two 240x400 zones, plus an e-mail zone and a zone I was planning to use with direct campaign invocation (which I have not found how to do on Revive yet). I have about 15 advertisers and 20 contract campaigns, uncapped for the most part, plus a couple of remnant campaigns. I have checked that campaigns are correctly assigned to zones, and that contracted views and end dates are fine. I use normal JS invocation. My web site shows about 10.000 impressions daily, and I've set tests for a few days that would serve 5% of contracted adviews and zone priorities are all wrong, with hardly any priorities assigned to contract campaigns. I tried also for about 8 hours to run 30% of views with similarly low priorities for contract campaigns even though remnants should be 0% (see attached image, a small number of contact banners have some priority, which can be 0.5%-12%), though stats showed mostly contract campaigns being delivered, albeit with very low views, about a third of what they should be. (Zone in this test is set not to show banners if the are none that can be show, though I have not seen this happen). I have changed a few file delivery names and used re-directs in .htaccess. I have checked the debug log and it seems fine, with maintenance running OK. I have checked the "Troubleshooting banner delivery" document. I know there was a command line way of showing some priority tables, but since the openx site is down and they are not documented I have not been able to run those tests. I'd be very grateful for some advice. Thanks in advance.

    Changing Delivery File Names

    Does the [file] listing in the conf.php file play any role? (such as click="ck.php", they seem unchanged in the conf file) Also, can I safely change "adId=bannerid" in the conf.php to something else? (changing banner id was suggested at
