I have a message board...any ideas how can I serve ads in the board. It's a standard phpbb board. I don't mean serve adsense, I mean is there a plugin or mod so that I can display at the top of any forum that pops opens 3 or 4 ads like adsense but not coming from google.
I haven't actually seen ads (adsense or not) displayed on a board so I don't even know what's possible.
You'll have to edit the template or page code to insert ad code. For your ad rotator, you may find a plug in or you could use a generic ad rotation program like PHPAdsNew. More powerful programs will provide statistics, separate advertiser logins, etc.
Regarding Adsense, I keep getting 'password' or 'forum/board' type ads served on the password protected forums, is there a way to have adsense send relevant ads? Once in a while, a relevant set of ads appear behind a protected page.
