So, what you really need is the ability to
insert some simple code provided by AuctionAds into content pages of your
Joomla site. It is possible that you tried this before and failed. Why? Because
default settings of TinyMCE WYSIWYG Editor don’t allow this. To change this
you’ll need to open your TinyMCE WYSIWYG Editor mambot in administrator panel
(from menu Mambots -> Site Mambots -> TinyMCE WYSIWYG Editor). Change ‘Code Cleanup’ parameter to ‘off’. Verify that ‘Code support’
mambot is also enabled (published). Everything else is really simple. Go to
your AuctionAds account and get your code. Prepare your article (any
content that you want to publish together with AuctionAds) and enter it into content
editor. Press ‘Edit HTML code’ button in editor menu. It is marked as ‘HTML’
New window with html code would be opened. Find place where you want to
insert AD code and insert it there with <div></div> tags around it.
<Div> tags are required because it makes sense to insert some additional
properties to adjust positioning of your ad. Later on this page I’ll show properties
that were used to adjust ad position. Press update button. Well, you already completed
everything that was required to insert AuctionAd in Joomla content page.
Exact version of style properties in your
<div> tag could vary. I used the following format for introduction text:
<div style="float: left;
margin-left: 5px; margin-right: 5px; padding-top: 15px;">
Place your code from AuctionAds here.
I used small 125x125 button ad to fit into
heading of this article.
In general, it is not necessary to know
HTML or CSS to do these simple things. However it could be helpful to learn something
about styles that could be used.
For the second ad that you can see at this
page I used the different style.
<div style="text-align: center;">
AuctionAds code here.
You can use different properties to control ad placement.
Some examples are: float:left; float:right;
text-align:center; text-align:left; text-align:right; text-align:justify;
margin: XXpx; (where XX is number) margin-left: XXpx;
margin-right: XXpx; margin-top: XXpx; margin-bottom: XXpx;
padding: XXpx; padding-left: XXpx; padding<-right: XXpx;
padding-top: XXpx; padding-bottom: XXpx
It is possible to continue this list but I think that it would be enough to start
The purpose of these simple examples was to
give an idea how easy you can insert AuctionAds or Google AdSense code in the
middle of Joomla content page without any special mambot. If you like an idea
of using AuctionAds inside content to monetize your site and increase usability,
you should get your own Publisher ID here and start using AuctionAds .
Some other AuctionAds ads that you can see
on this page are generated by our AuctionAds module. You can download AuctionAds-eBay
Gateway module by Deal-Times here.
