I need your help with this. I'm an internet manager for an auto group and we have a toyota franchise. Toyota makes banner ads available to us for download and I can place them onto my website. The banners are Open Click Tag ad banners. I've tried use the directions that are included in the file but I'm not having any luck at all with the URL's getting applied to the banner ads. I was hoping you guys could look at it and tell me what I'm doing wrong. Listed below is the Info from the directions in the zip file and also a link to a SWF you can test. For the life of me I can't get it to work.
Here is what I'm using
<embed src="http://www.beaman-auto.com/13AV_INT_dealerEXPLR_300x250.swf?clickTag=http://www.beamanauto.com" quality//="high" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" height="250" width="300"></embed>
Here's the directions from the PDF. It's kinda long.
Directions for deployment of Open-Click Tag adbanners:
This document serves as an instruction on how to deploy an Open-Click Tag flash banner, when it has been programmed to call "_level0.clickTag" for its mouse-click response.
The Open-Click Tag value can be overwritten using what is called a "query- string" amendment to the filename. This means that the value of any variable can be inserted by adding a certain code-string to the end of a SWF filename, when written in its containing HTML.
**The following instructions are for a webmaster or deployment-manager that will deploy the Open-Click Tag ad-banner to a website in any environment.
The swf file named "08TU_Engine_300x250.swf" needs the click-event to redirect the user to "http://www.yourdealership.com"
When housed in an HTML file, the OBJECT tags simply require the reference to the filename:
1. SRC="08TU_Engine_300x250.swf" (within the Object tag)
Now the filename will be amended to assign the URL value desired for the
'ClickTag' variable coded within the banner:
2. 'movie', "08TU_Engine_300x250.swf?clickTag=http://www.yourdealership.com"
When an ad-unit has more than one Click Tag for separate user call-to-actions (clickTag1, clickTag2, etc), one can amend more than one value using the ampersand (per query-string methodology). Example:
'movie', "08TU_Engine_300x250.swf?clickTag1=http://www.yourdealership.com&clickTag2= [yourdealership.com
