    andrewatfornax reacted to Matteo Beccati in Destination URL not working in HTML5 ad banner   
    @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!

    andrewatfornax reacted to ericleonardo in How to add a Class to IMG tag on image banner?   
    SOLVED! Now I'm using the "Javascript Tag" Invocation Code (instead of Asynchronous Javascript Tag) serving Responsive and Centered image.
    Just put the invocation code inside a DIV and added a piece of code in the end only for the addClass purpose, THIS WAY:
    <div class="mydiv">
    //INVOCATION CODE (I added "async" inside script tag hoping it to work asyncly, despit not being the Async invocation code)

    andrewatfornax reacted to WillPJK in campagin issue   
    Okay, final update with working solution:
    Just hours after figuring out the lines of code to remove (which literally took all night whoops) my host got back to me saying their antimalware was responsible for the problem and they'd fixed it.
    So, for other people experiencing this problem:
    Step 1) Contact your host explaining the issue and they will hopefully add the exception. My host is not a small host, so I suspect a few people might suddenly have the ability to create working installs now.
    Step 2) If your host is crap or there isn't an antimalware problem, extract the Campaigns.php file from the installer ZIP, remove the four lines outlined in my previous post, and hopefully that will help!

    andrewatfornax reacted to romubebs in How to fill Zone with campaign?   
    Sorry for not being clear enough. In the example with 2 million impressions it was the total amount of impressions causing lots of empty impressions.
    And yes, that's exactly what I mean and I was hoping to give one zone 100 %. I'll give it a try and see how it works automatically :)
    Thanks for your help.
