  1. Thinking more about this.. shouldn't async.js loop the f.ajax(e, g) based on the zones length and then individual rules ?
  2. I'm bumping my own thread back up because I'm back at optimizing my sites and know that I need to have my ads running via async BUT the BUG still persists... Running all my ads via javascript writes is a tremendous speed hit and will probably be blocked by future browser versions soon (says Chromes console log)... Is there anyone out there that can help figure out why the call to asyncpc.php (via async.php and then .js) does not pair value the zones w/ their rule variables passed in? I can't be the only one experiencing this problem.. In a short revamp of my problem (in case you don't feel like reading from the beginning) I have multiple ad's running per page, anywhere's from 3-15 ads of different types on one page.. Each of these said ads have rule-sets deployed on the invocation code. When my page loads and the ad's are retrieved - they all come from the same campaign regardless of my rules passed in.. Inspecting and following the code calls, I can see how all the zones are passed in pipe delimited BUT it only passes in the rule that is set on the very last ad thus resulting (in my case) all of my ads showing from the same campaign. I'd be head over heels to hear this was fixed in v5 but am hesitant to upgrade yet. Thanks to anyone who took the time to read this and can help.
  3. Is there away to create a redirect ad? I have some pages that I pop in which I would like revive to count the impressions on. I don't see how it is possible w/ the regular banner code options but am wondering if there is a way to force a zone or banner to be tracked before the page redirects to the destination URL.
  4. Did some more digging and will consider this question closed for now... Using the javascript code to invoke the zone seems to be the only way for me to get the desired output. I just had to and in one line of code for the variable/value to be passed in. Now all 3 zones are loading random banners based on the variable "paysite" value I pass in.
  5. Since I kept digging.. (still am) I noticed that my browser console looks like it is only showing one call to: VM13246:1 XHR finished loading: GET "https://MYSERVER.com/www/delivery/asyncspc.php?zones=33%7C1%7C40%7C41%7C42&prefix=revive-0-&target=_blank&pref=A&paysite=220&block=1&loc=https%3A%2F%MYDOMAIN.com%2F". In my first post you'll notice that I was only declaring the async call once in the header.. I have also tried invoking under each banner tag and still get the same issue. It makes sense now why all the zones w/ the particular rules are loading the banners from the same campaign.. what DOESN'T make sense is why in call to to asynspc.php is there only one variable rule. The call above shows URL var zones=33,40,41,42 BUT it only has one value for the var paysites=220. Theoretically the variable paysite should have 3 values..
  6. Hey Everyone, I have 3 Zones in the footer of a site. Zone 1, 2 and 3. Each Zone has the same exact banners in them. Each banner invocation tag has the same rule set where they should pull a banner based on the variable rule passed in. For example: <head> <script async src="//MYSERVER.com/www/delivery/asyncjs.php"></script> </head> <ins data-revive-zoneid="<? echo $footer_home_1_zone; ?>" data-revive-paysite="<?php echo getRandPaysite1($_SESSION['filterType']); ?>" data-revive-target="_blank" data-revive-id="<? echo $revive_id; ?>"></ins> <ins data-revive-zoneid="<? echo $footer_home_2_zone; ?>" data-revive-paysite="<?php echo getRandPaysite2($_SESSION['filterType']); ?>" data-revive-target="_blank" data-revive-id="<? echo $revive_id; ?>"></ins> <ins data-revive-zoneid="<? echo $footer_home_3_zone; ?>" data-revive-paysite="<?php echo getRandPaysite3($_SESSION['filterType']); ?>" data-revive-target="_blank" data-revive-id="<? echo $revive_id; ?>"></ins> So the data rule set being passed on the banner end is (every banner has this rule applied to them respectively to their campaign): Site - Variable "is equal to" Name: paysite Value: 320 (for example sake) In my invoke tags I call 3 separate functions that return a random "paysite" number. ( I know this can all be done w/ the same function call, but created 3 to debug). The php and invoke tags are all being written to and output in the code correctly BUT the the zones are not displaying the correct banners. What IS happening is the last zone (zone 3) is producing the correct banner to its rule set and then zone 1 and 2 are displaying banners from that same campaign. So basically it seems like the last called zone is somehow interfering with what the previous two zones should show - even though the invoke code is all correct. I have looked in the debug log - but I see nothing at all in regard to zones and rule sets. I will continue to search and try to debug, but if anyone sees anything blatantly incorrect with my logic or has run across this issue, I am all ears.
  7. Sorry if I am missing something, but looking to duplicate a zone that has 300+ banners set up from 100+ campaigns/advertisers... When editing my zone, I click on duplicate, it creates a copy of the zone but does not carry in all the banners that zone has permission for... Please tell me this is possible?
  8. Hey Andrew, When using X zones.. it then brings back every banner.. which I would then need to selectively add only the ones that should fit dimension wise.. Is there a way to ping the server for a response to indicate whether or not a zone has banners?
  9. Hey Andrew, I did dig deeper and figured out that the zones need to be the same size I guess... I am looking for a fall back chain that would show ad's of another dimension. ie. If my 300x300 zone had no particular banners per the rules I set, then try another zone of 250x250. Am going to jump into the code and see if I can adjust this.
  10. Can anyone tell me if they have the same issue with this feature. I am trying to set a Zone's chain settings to use a different zone if there are no banners for a certain zone. When I click the radio button the select drop down shows but there are no values (or Zones) to select.
  11. After going through the banner-edit.php code, I was able to just default the names to a random string. This definitely speeds things up when adding ton's of banners - if you don't have need to descriptively name your banners.
  12. Hey Andrew, This does help a little but setting up the test server to be able to access the api is a bit confusing.. I have no problem coding and debugging, but sys work has never really been my expertise. As it stands right now, I have been trying a couple different things. I can duplicate the banner-edit.php page on my revive server (saving the view source html) and then adding a banner (noting the token, campaign and client ID's etc..) and submitting a banner will work. Ultimately what I am trying to do is take that same page and add multiple "upload" form fields (name=upload[]) so that they can be accessed as an array and then curl post all of that data back to the banner-edit.php page..... which isn't working Would you be able to shed some light as to why this may or may not work? Honestly having to add and name all the banners one by one is going to be an ever ongoing looooong process for me.
  13. I have read the documentation about wildcards.: Size: If the zone type is Banner, Button or Rectangle, Interstitial or Floating DHTML or Email/Newsletter, then the size fields will be required. You can either select from standard, pre-defined IAB banner sizes, or define your own custom size. Revive Adserver supports wildcard dimensions (i.e. the star character, "*") if you want to specify that one or both dimensions are variable. This allows banners of any matching dimensions to be displayed in the zone - otherwise, if fixed dimensions are used, only banners matching those dimensions will be able to be displayed in the zone. (Generally, this is desirable, as variable size banners in a zone affect the layout of the website on which the zone appears.) I tried this but is not completely what I am looking for - as this would bring in too many banners for linking.. Would be cool if we could specify Max dimensions for a zone. 🙄
  14. Hi all, Is it possible in anyway to link a banner whose dimensions are smaller than of a particular zone? Example: I have custom zone of 300x300. Shouldn't I be able to link a 250x250 banner to this zone as well?
  15. Hi Everyone, I am new to the forum here.. I have briefly used revive years ago (maybe 5+) and am back using the software again. Sorry if this question has been covered before - I have searched multiple ways but didn't see any relevant topics... I am looking to see if there is a way to upload multiple banners at once (for argument sake - all of the same dimensions) and then have the program auto-name them. In my industry it is very common to get a dump of 20-30 banners per size per advertiser. Entering them into the system one at time is very tedious. I have seen there may be a paid plugin that might be able to do multiple uploads.. but I am curious if there is a native way to do this.
