= 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 0.8. 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.
