  1. I had similar issues with Hosted Edition where on a couple of days it was out of control. Ridiculous impressions in a couple hours and insane click numbers for a coupe of hours. More than 10x the average clicks on a couple days. These are with email ads, which shouldn't even be seen by bots.
  2. I have a daily newsletter that goes out that can have a lot of ads on it, 15 or more on some days. I have had issues with my server slowing and/or crashing with max_children errors, which the host has mentioned email servers and Revive ad server scripts. I noticed yesterday when we had a very light ad day, about 6 or so, that the slow down didn't seem to happen. I have exhausted all other options other than Revive itself, I even took the website ads and pushed them to Revive Hosted to see if that would help. So now all that is hoisted on my server are the newsletter ads. Could
  3. I updated the system a few months ago and it caused all the stats to be crazy. I tried everything I could find to fix it with no luck, so I had to do a clean install and start from scratch. Not the end of the world, but advertisers are requesting and need their results. It seems even the far back stats show incorrectly, so I decided to check the actual data tables and see what was in there. From what I can guess, the data there looks OK, but for some reason the stat page and exports are doing something to the numbers. ??? Very weird. If I take a clean install, is is possible to imp
  4. Did you ever get an answer on this? I am having serious problems again with ad impressions / clicks on my email campaigns that are ridiculously high.
  5. I had this same issue, after it couldn't fine the XML files (which I can't see anywhere) during the upgrade, after a few attempts it upgraded anyway, but never brought over the plugins from the previous install. All I did was copy the original plugins over to the plugins folder in the new versions folder and all is well again.
  6. Chimed... so I take it that means nothing exists at the moment though. Bummer!
  7. My sales person is frustrated with the automated reports that are only able to be set by number of days. We have both Website and Newsletter advertising, Newsletter ads are a pain because they may run just for one week, or month, and sometimes even just 1 day a week which is a total pain in the ***, but I digress... What I need to be able to do is set automatic reporting to be possibly the 1st of every month, or by Week Mon-Sun. The current by day makes a mess of things because the days in a month are not equal obviously so every 30 days doesn't really work well, because it ends up
  8. We have a news based site and we charge for classified ad placement, at the moment I'm using it with my CMS with start / expire dates. I would rather use Revive to manage them as well, but before I dive into configuration and coding I figured I would see if anyone here has tried this and if they have any suggestions regarding implimenting a zone like this? Thanks!
  9. I have an issue where my site that requires hiding index.php form URLs is causing 404's with Revive files that have -index.php at the end. (which are the main ones) Is there a way to work around this issue that anyone knows of? I tried numerous things I found searching the web but nothing seems to be working at all. This is the main directory's htaccess: <IfModule mod_rewrite.c> RewriteEngine On RewriteBase / # Removes index.php from URLs RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} ^GET.*index\.php [NC] RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !/system/.* [NC] Re
  10. I see tons of tables never used from OpenX (ok maybe I'm exaggerating a little, probably 10 or so) Do you need all of the tables or is there just a few that are needed? Seems half are empty from what I can tell. Thanks!
  11. I sent a newsletter our today that had banner advertising in it. I missed one that did not have http:// in front and now it will not redirect. (my stupidity for not verifying!!) I updated the URL and it works going forward, but I have no way to change it on HTML Email that have already been sent to 8500 +- people. Is there a fix for this or am I just plain out of luck? Thanks!
  12. I am testing targeting channels using the variable: banner_channel = [dynamic-category-name] and I can't seem to see any difference, the ads are still showing up everywhere. I've gone into delivery of a few ads, and set by channel and selected the channels I want. The iFrame code shows the &banner_channel=category-name at the end of the URL correctly. Any ideas on making this work? Docs would be so handy right now! haha! Thanks!
  13. I did find the asnwer to fix this problem using the instructions for clickTAG from flashclicktag.com on (release) { if (_root.clickTAG.substr(0,5) == "http:") { getURL(_root.clickTAG, "_blank"); } }
  14. This ad is driving me crazy! I have a slew of other Flash banners that work great, no problem at all. But for some reason this one will not. Its set up using clickTag, I even tried copy / pasting from Adobe's site to be sure it was correct. It does grab the right URL, but even in the Revive server panel when viewing the banner, it does not open a new window when clicked, just opens the link in the existing window or iFrame when delivered at the site. I tried clickTARGET and down saving, no change. Any thoughts?
  15. Yes I think that helps - is there any documentation on using site-variable somewhere? i think that would be the easiest because the url isn't always the best for instance: www.site.com/news/[category-name] would be good but, when you click on an article it directs you to www.site.com/news/[article-name] But it uses the same news/index page, I would just need to grab the category name and make it the variable for either case and every category. (if that makes sense)
  16. I have a site that has multple topics and I need to start targeting ads to the topics. I think the targeting channels would be the way to go, but I'm a little confused on how to work with them and can't find docs or tutorials on it. The site in question is built with ExpressionEngine, and would be based on "category". I would rather not create a ton of Zones if I can avoid it, so any suggestions on best way to handle this would be welcome.
