  1. I would like some help in setting delivery limitations by zip code. We use the Maxmind GeoIP database. Do we simply paste an unbroken string of 5-digit zip codes into the fairly small text input box? Or should there be some separator between zip codes, like a comma? Or can only 1 zip code be entered per box? Thanks for any help you can provide.
  2. Thanks. Is there an ETA on v. 4.1.4? Is there some piecemeal script adjustment that we can do before the 4.1.4 is released?
  3. After upgrading to ver. 4.13, I am no longer able to change the columns to be displayed under Account Preferences. For example, I check the box for Revenues but when I click Save, the selection of that column is not saved, preventing me from generating stats showing revenues. Is this a bug or something that can be addressed by the user? Thank you.
  4. Here is a test page where the Google test banner can be seen as served through Revive: http://asianmedia.com/Tags/test_728-2_ms3.html Can you provide a sample html5 banner that can be uploaded as a zip file and that you know will let Revive track clicks?
  5. The Revive adserver also doesn't appear to track clicks from the following code from a test banner provided on the Google page: <html> <head> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"> <meta name="ad.size" content="width=728,height=90"> <link rel="stylesheet" href="HTML5_InPage_MultipleClicktags_728x90.css"/> <title>Untitled</title> <script type="text/javascript"> var clickTag1 = "https://www.doubleclickbygoogle.com/"; var clickTag2 = "https://www.doubleclickbygoogle.com/"; var clickTag3 = "https://www.doubleclickbygoogle.com/"; </script> </head> <body> <div class="container_dc"> <img class="logo_dc"/> <a href="javascript:window.open(window.clickTag3)"> <div class="container_300x250"></div> </a> <a href="javascript:window.open(window.clickTag1)"> <img id="cta_dc"> </a> <a href="javascript:window.open(window.clickTag2)"> <img id="cta_dc2"> </a> </div> </body> </html>
  6. They do have clickTags defined their banner code. Here is that segment: <script> var clickTag = 'https://www.vemlidy.com/TAF/vemlidy_com/v1/static/taf/pdfs/Vemlidy_Traditional_Chinese_Important_Facts.pdf'; var clickTag2 = 'https://www.vemlidy.com/tch?utm_source=asianmediagroup_asiamediagroup_network&utm_medium=display&utm_campaign=2017_consumer_vemlidy_awareness&utm_content=TCH_300x250_desktop'; </script>
  7. Thanks for the suggestion, Matteo. Unfortunately, the Google page wasn't helpful as the banner files provided by the client are coded quite differently. Here is the test page of their banner without the macro, which works fine except that our Revive server doesn't track any clicks: http://asianmedia.com/Tags/test_300x250_ms3.html When we add the {clickurl} macro ahead of their jump URL linked to the clickTag, the browser sends this error message: The requested URL /MS3images/1338b2793eaf578a76149be640a94904/%7Bclickurl%7Dhttps://www.vemlidy.com/tch?utm_source=asianmediagroup_asiamediagroup_network&utm_medium=display&utm_campaign=2017_consumer_vemlidy_awareness&utm_content=TCH_300x250_desktop was not found on this server. Here is a test page displaying the banner with the click macro added: http://asianmedia.com/Tags/test_300x250-2_ms3.html I would really appreciate any help you can provide as to how we might get this banner to track clicks on our Revive Adserver.
  8. On all the campaigns for which we were provided zipped HTML5 banners to iimplement, we were unable to get our Revive adserver (ver. 4.1 and earlier) to log clicks. We tried modifying the files to add a {clickurl} to the index file itself, then rezipped it and installed it via the Revive banner UI. We tried adding the {clickurl} macro in front of the URL in the Destination URL field. Nothing allowed us to track clicks. So we have had to use the unsatisfactory workaround of calling the index page to an iframe, changing the links in the index page to all the various component files, then surrounding the entire iframe with a click division to which we prepended the {clickurl} macro. Here is an example: <div style="position: relative;"> <a target="_blank" href="{clickurl}https://www.vemlidy.com/tch?utm_source=asianmediagroup_asiamediagroup_network&utm_medium=display&utm_campaign=2017_consumer_vemlidy_awareness&utm_content=TCH_300x250_desktop" style="position:absolute; top:0px; left:0px; display:inline-block; width:300px; height:250px; z-index:0;"> </a> <iframe src="https://asianmedia.com/SS/Gilead-803/chi-300-dt/index.html" width="300" height="250" style="border:0px;" sandbox="allow-scripts" scrolling="no"></iframe> </div> This can work (albeit being tedious) if the entire banner has only one clickTag and no other controls. But it isn’t satisfactory when banners have two different clickTags or other controls like scrollbars, etc. Is there a way to be able to upload zipped HTML5 banners and track clicks? I would really appreciate if anyone can show us how to get clicks tracked as it would save us a lot of hassles in implementing HTML5 banner zip files. Thank you.
  9. Some of our publishers can't or won't accept tags. Instead, they require the actual banner or video file for them to serve directly. Is there a way for us to generate Revive tags that we can send to the publisher to implement so we can track their impressions and clicks?
  10. Doubleclick for Advertisers is now using asynchronous tags and deprecating synchronous tags. I can't figure out where to place the Revive clicktracking macro {clickurl} on the asynchronous tags which typically looks like this: <ins class='dcmads' style='display:inline-block;width:728px;height:90px' data-dcm-placement='N5079.1170589ASIANMEDIAGROUPINC/B10259981.137267464' data-dcm-rendering-mode='script' data-dcm-https-only data-dcm-resettable-device-id=''> <script src='https://www.googletagservices.com/dcm/dcmads.js'></script> </ins> Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
  11. I am experiencing a similar issue. When I serve a video banner the video plays fine on Chrome and Firefox but does not show up on Safari. A programmer I spoke with suggested that it is likely to be a php issue involving the ajs.php script. I was leery about making modifications to that script, but I am now beginning to think there is some bug in that script that causes some banners not to display correctly on Safari. It would be great if one of the moderators could take a look at the issue.
  12. I had to recreate the config file on the 3.2.2 install because it was accidentally overwritten by a the config file from our old 3.2.1 install that we were phasing out. I managed to get the server delivering and logging again, at least to the database, but I am now unable to access the admin interface. When I try to log in, I get a server error message though I know the access credentials are correct. It fees like some kind of permissions issue or possibly some error in the way my admin account was set up in the database. Is there some way to directly repair this problem in the mysql database itself? Thanks.

    Geo targeting

    Hey Seth, We use the GeoIOCity, which lets us target by city or DMA (designated market area), or of course by country or state (province) of any nation. The price depends on the degree of specificity you need. If you're just targeting an entire continent, you probably don't need a very large one and the price would be fairly low, I would imagine. Hey zFidel, Yes, we do see some geotargeting discrepancy with Doubleclick (Google) but generally it's not bad. For some reason, in the SF DMA there seems to be a lot of impressions that are seen by Revive's targeting as SF DMA but which Doubleclick sees as China. This happens despite us having set it to determine the real IP address of viewers behind a proxy server. We think it's because some Chinese use proxies based in the SF Bay area to view US-based sites to get around their government's restrictions. So, yes, proxy servers will cause this discrepancy but setting Revive to seek out the real IP doesn't seem to prevent it.
  14. We have been asked to serve banners to an SSL domain. Do we need to do anything besides modifying the tags to begin with https://... and setting the configuration file to SSL=1? Currently our server is self-authenticated so we can send and receive SSL emails. Do you need a certificate from an outside authority? Do we need to create a second SSL installation of the Revive adserver? Would appreciate any insights you may have. Thanks!

    Geo targeting

    Hello zFidel, Are you subscribing to a geotargeting database? The database changes constantly so you should probably update it at least once or twice a month. If you are relying on the nominal one that comes free with the server, it won't be reliable at all. We subscribe to the Maxmind GeoIPCity database which seems to agree pretty well with DFA/Google.
