This component is fetching a random ad from your pool of OssnAds and inserts a minified instance of it inside available newsfeeds (main wall, group wall and profile wall) and on the 'About User' page.
The current logic has been coded to display 1 ad per 10 postings by default.
The admin backend comes with a configurable option to reduce the number of inserted ads (internally by combining the placement with a simple random
x 1 / x 0 multiplier).
would be a nice to have, but actually this unnecessary triggering is avoidable with the current code base, too - IF the developer takes a little more care. 😌
fixed with 1.2
Bug report getAds action is called on administrator page too
Actually widescreeninsert = true is triggering that. I think OSSN needs a one global core JS and two others site and admin so component can only extend the file that is front-end or backend to avoid loading large js on backend. Maybe in OSSN 6.0
There's no such option.
Available options are reachable from your admin backend administrator/component/AdsInserter
I'm happy to announce that ads inserting is working also on wider screens now.
then obviously we're not very much in line with what we want. Anyway, I tried to explain why it makes sense to update Ossn. And as it doesn't need a developer to INSTALL Ossn - and you managed that - it doesn't need a developer to UPGRADE. It's a few steps and you're done.
I'm not a developer and I can't update my website so I want to get access to this component for my version...(((
I'm sorry, no.
Have a brief look into Changes.txt and ChangeLog.txt at https://github.com/opensource-socialnetwork/opensource-socialnetwork
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 Thus I see no good reason for creating and extra component for your outdated release and would very much recommend to update your site to the latest OSSN instead.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 Inserter available for version 5.0 or not?
