Hi All,
  1. I have implemented AdSence advertising on my site. When clicking the ad's it opens them in the same tab rather than a new tab.
    Is there any way of changing this action so all banner ad's open in a new tab.
     
  2. I've installed ocThePoint on the site but it doesn't seem to work. I have not been able to find any information on this addon but it did seem to install without problem. I've flushed the caches etc but no points are added to the given user for clicking the AdsSence ad's.

    Any idea where I may be going wrong?
Any help would be much appreciated.

Nick
PS I'm running the latest version with all the patches installed.

Hi,

1-
Opening the ads in a new window - AdSense Help

2-

It only works on ocPortal banner images, not external advertiser code (we don't have any way of tracking it). I'll update the addon description.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Hi Chris,

Thanks for the quick reply.

And 'No Thanks' Mr Google, that's not what I want at all as I'm generating loads more revenue for you than you'll ever give to me!

Look forward to an update on the add-on, bet I've missed the point somewhere.

Nick

Sorry Chris,

Must have been having a bit of a moment! I have just fathomed the point you were making, you cannot use ocThePoint with AdSence.
