Using Revive for Html Scheduled content insertion?


Recommended Posts

Hey just started working on an idea that I could use Revive AdServer to schedule a weekly content page.

I will setup 2-alternative ads, one runs, a week, then the next runs the following week, and so on.

Not sure what ad type to use, I'm thinking it should just be a 'Text Ad'.

The actual content is html code that inserts a PDF into the page, that changes every week.

i don't think I want the ad to define any sizes, as the iframe code will do that.

Any thoughts on what sort of Ad Zone definition, and Ad Type would be best to use for scheduling content into an html page?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Tried Using an HTML ad with a Text Ads Campaign type.

The Ad still requires a size.

I don't wish to set a size in pixels, so the iframe can be responsive with 100% width.


I could try a text banner, that does not require a size, but not sure my wordpress page would realize the text is supposed to be html code, not text characters?

OK, replying to myself once again, the IT guys shot down my use of the WordPress plugin (Excellent solution, lol).

Maybe all I have to do is use Wildcard sizing.

Totally forgot for the size of an ad a person can just use * for width and * for height.

Wish me luck then.

Generic HTML is not accepting * Wildcard sizing, is requiring a number...

Thought it would, trying others...

Ooop... think I still had my Zone Settings wrong, checking... ?

The code includes Wordpress Code, so far all I'm getting is text on my page, the code is not being rendered then by wordpress. The code also includes WordPress shortcodes to render.

I guess I did not explain from the outset.

The output intended is an embedded PDF.

Normally they appear in an iframe on our site.

Has anyone ever done a PDF ad type of some kind?

My output so far is my wordpress code is not rendering, only the code text appears on the page.
