= Ad Banners

An ad banner extension for Radiant, inspired by the banner_rotator extension
but targeted at a different use case.

Note: This version of the ad_banners extension is compatible with Radiant 0.9.
If you are using Radiant 0.8.x, please pull from the radiant-0.8.1 branch.
If you are using Radiant 0.7.1, please pull from the radiant-0.7.1 branch.

== Installation

This extension relies on the paperclipped extension, so install it first if you
are not already using it:

  git submodule add git://github.com/kbingman/paperclipped.git vendor/extensions/paperclipped

Install the ad_banners extension:

  git submodule add git://github.com/davec/radiant-ad_banners-extension.git vendor/extensions/ad_banners

Note: Substitute `it clone` for `git submodule add` if you do not want to
install the extensions as submodules.

Run the migration and copy the public assets:

  rake radiant:extensions:ad_banners:migrate
  rake radiant:extensions:ad_banners:update

Ad banners can be created and managed from the Ads tab in the admin UI. One or
more ad banners can be displayed on a page using the supplied Radius tag.

To associate an image with an ad banner, you need to have previously added it
to your (paperclipped) assets bucket.

== Example

To display a random ad banner, use

  <r:ad_banner />

Multiple <r:ad_banner/> tags can be placed on a page and each one will generate
the HTML code to display a unique ad banner. If there are more <r:ad_banner/>
tags on a page than there are defined ad banners, the excess <r:ad_banner/>
tags will be ignored (actually, they'll generate an empty string).

A name attribute can also be specified to show a specific ad banner

  <r:ad_banner name="Ad Banner Name" />

When an ad banner is specified by name it is removed from the list of eligible
banners to display with a bare <r:ad_banner/> tag. If, for some reason, you want
to display the same banner multiple times on a page you must use the name
attribute to do so.

== Dependencies

This extension depends on the paperclipped extension and incorporates modified
copies of some of paperclipped's view templates.
