Fade multiple ads in and out every 30 seconds instead of displaying them separately one below another.

This component won't allow you to disable or remove its pre-requisites (OssnAds) as long as it is enabled.

  • pre-requisites check added
  • license update

V 1.2

  • fixed ads overlapping topbar dropdown boxes

V 1.1

  • display ads on pages with offset > 1

V 1.0

  • initial release

Have a brief look into Changes.txt and ChangeLog.txt at
and you'll get an idea how many things have been fixed and enhanced in the meantime. Thus I see no good reason for creating and extra component for your outdated release and would very much recommend to update your site to the latest OSSN instead.

Is it possible to make Ads Fader available for version 5.0 or not?

I'm sorry,
but I don't answer any off-topic questions here.
Please place a feature request in the main forum thread instead.

can you tell me anyway

He Martin,

it seems you misunderstood:
this component was meant to FADE (already existing) ads, not to PLACE ads somewhere in your community.

how can i add the ads to the timeline (newsfeed)

ignore my previous comment about the ads not showing up the right* sidebar on mobile view, I didn't see your GreenByGreen theme which seems to have taken care of that. Unfortunately, not a whole lot of people are using that theme and even fewer use 5.2 at this point. might still be worth considering the other options I suggested. I personally spoke to several people to who wanted ads to display within newsfeed posts, even on the desktop site where ads on the right sidebar wouldn't be hidden.

fading multiple ads in/out is a really good idea.

a couple suggestions regarding ad-related features that many people have asked me about:

  • display a single ad in the usual place, but have it be selected randomly out of several that the user can upload.
  • instead of positioning the ad in the usual place on the left sidebar, place it within the wall posts on the newsfeed, at a specified interval. e.g., show an ad every 5 posts. multiple people asked me about this because of the fact that the the entire left sidebar (where the ads display) is cut off on the mobile view.
  • allow for some html-safe text in a description of the ad to be displayed in addition to just images

I developed the above features for a handful of people who were looking for a more advanced ads solution for OSSN over the past 6 months or so. I'll let them know that it may be worth their time to check out your AdsFader.

Thanks for making me aware of that, Mark.

Honestly I tested the component with my GreenByGreen theme, only - which comes with a higher priority of the dropdown menus. I'll try to find a fix for GoBlue and other themes.

fixed with 1.2 now

Hi Z,

This is wonderful component however the problem seems to be when you open the messages tab top right toggle the photograph is in the foreground and thus making it not possible to read the messages or notifications lists.

The FadeAds needs to kept in the background.

I hope I make sense otherwise awesome component.

Thanks for you great work.
