    andrewatfornax reacted to gabrielt in Stats mismatch and weird behavior - 10/2017   
    @andrewatfornax Yep, it was a zone configuration error, as the banners were linked to the wrong zones. Therefore, no need for this topic, as it was my mistake, and you can delete it. Thanks.

    andrewatfornax reacted to YPCrumble in Getting 302 ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS   
    UPDATE: the issue was my permissions on my revive-adserver folder. I was installing them with 644 permissions rather than 700 into `/var/www/html`. By changing back permissions to 700 the redirect stopped. Hopefully this helps someone in the future.
    @Matteo do you happen to understand why the improper permissions might have caused this redirect, or which code is likely the source of the redirect? I'd love to submit a PR that causes Revive to fail loudly in the event that permissions are improperly set on its source files. That would have made this redirect issue much easier to debug.

    Turns out that's fixed by setting the correct images path in the config *doh*

    FOr any one wanting to know the solution :
    i added my column  name under zones in the below file
    lib/max/Dal/DataObjects/db_schema.ini
     
    at the end i added
    newZoneField = 2
    and was finally able to add the new column value

    problem solved. there was SELinux running, so we have to configure SELinux to allow files to be writable.

    @jhrockers I'm sorry, I can't possibly debug and fix the banners for all the Revive Adserver users. My suggestion would be to hire someone with basic JS / HTML5 skills who should be able to fix the code for you.

    andrewatfornax reacted to Josh in Displaying ads to all vs. new visitors   
    Assuming you can control your invocation code output for new visitors, you could use Delivery Options to target source=new-visitor. And like Andrew said, use override campaign to make sure they are highest priority.

    andrewatfornax reacted to Josh in local mode vs. javascript: huge difference   
    This is due to bots. Bots most often won't execute js tags but will follow <img> (logging beacon) and <a> (click tracker). You can confirm this by looking at your web server logs.

    andrewatfornax reacted to Lange in How to combine two zones or two ad-formats?   
    Ok, I found it. It's just a * to put in the size.
    So for my Skyscrapers it is     * x 600px and for the banners    468 x * px. The Size with * is a free size and the banner is also put in the correkt zone, by knowing the other size.

    andrewatfornax reacted to Josh in How to refresh async javascript tags   
    Usage example for refreshing javascript async invocation tags.
    Got it working like so
    HTML
        <div class="ad-300x250" id="ad-300x250-1">
            <ins data-revive-zoneid="153" data-revive-id="b7c2bd3ff3b3bed3a9daa932a43cc2a8"></ins>
            <script async src="https://ra.example.com/www/delivery/asyncjs.php"></script>
        </div>
        <div class="ad-300x250" id="ad-300x250-2">
            <ins data-revive-zoneid="154" data-revive-id="b7c2bd3ff3b3bed3a9daa932a43cc2a8"></ins>
            <script async src="https://ra.example.com/www/delivery/asyncjs.php"></script>
        </div>
    JS
        // placements to refresh
        var adSlots = ['#ad-300x250-1', '#ad-300x250-2'];
        // remove data-revive-loaded attribute
        for (var i = adSlots.length - 1; i >= 0; i--) {
            $(adSlots).find('ins').removeAttr('data-revive-loaded');
        }
        // refresh the ads (use your data-revive-id)
        reviveAsync.b7c2bd3ff3b3bed3a9daa932a43cc2a8.refresh();
        // if your data-revive-id starts with number, access like so
        //reviveAsync['7bc2bd3ff3b3bed3a9daa932a43cc2a8'].refresh();

    andrewatfornax reacted to benwinton in Google Adsense's New Native Ad Formats   
    Andrew,
     
    Thank you for the response. I might have found a workaround that has been successful for the last 48 hours:
     
    1. Create a new ad zone and set the wildcards for the height and width -- "*".
    2. Create a new Google Adsense banner and set its height and width to something arbitrary. I chose 800x133, because that seemed close to the proportions of their full-sized Native ad format. 
    3. Assign the new Adsense Native banner to the new ad zone that has the wildcards for its height and width.
    The Native ad format seems to be getting displayed and tracked properly on some test pages I created.
     
    Just a workaround. Maybe in a future release, Revive might have an even greater solution. :)
     
    Thanks!

    andrewatfornax reacted to Rahul in Banner Delivery Logging Plugin missing   
    The banner impression doesn't get stored in my Adserver. I found that "Banner Delivery Logging Plugin" could be missing from revive documentation. And yes it's missing in my Adserver. How can I install/enable this plugin "Banner Delivery Logging Plugin" ? I'm using Revive Adserver v3.2.4

    andrewatfornax reacted to rpijlman in Several link targets for one banner?   
    No, that's not possible.
    To accomplish that you have to create multiple copies of the banner.

    andrewatfornax reacted to Erik Geurts in Error during upgrade from 4.0.0 to 4.1.0   
    It may be that you ran into an issue that was found in the upgrade process in v4.1.0 and that was fixed in v4.1.1. Please try if using the most recent version fixes this for you. See https://www.revive-adserver.com/download/ and https://www.revive-adserver.com/blog/revive-adserver-v4-1-1-released-bug-fixes/

    andrewatfornax reacted to gabrielt in Stats mismatch and weird behavior - 10/2017   
    Update: I think I found the culprit: It was a zone linking issue. I had the campaigns linked to certain zones but the banners linked to different zones... It seems this mismatch caused the issue when Revive tried to obey both configurations. I will have a definitive answer after lettting it run for a couple of days, but I am pretty confident that this was the issue indeed.

    The missing tables are:
      ox_data_summary_ad_hourly
    ox_data_intermediate_ad
     
    OK, I added the two tables from an earlier version, just the structure and not the data, and the install is working!
