1. Missing keys. It's the bug and it will be fixed in the nearest update.
2. How to remove unwanted/unneeded Prices/blocks in ../studio/banners/prices? There is no way to do it. The Prices manager shows all available blocks which you can change the pricing options for.
3. How many Banners in one BLOCK can be handled by the banner-rotator? There is no any limitations here. All active banners for a block will be rotated in it.
4. Date picker. The app uses standard UNA date picker which is used in some other default apps like Events and system features. When you click Now the picker enters the time. Looks like your local time doesn't correctly transfer in server time and therefore you cannot see the banner immediately. It will be autoactivated later. I'll try to reproduce the issue on my end and fix it.
5. Uploader should be able to view Banners in full after upload or for editing. As I see you are saying about images' preview in Create\Edit forms. It has standard dimensions while you may create banner types with any dimensions you want.
Thx for your reply Anton. To fullfill the mission ''Make the Banner Module Great Again *g '' some more suggestions from my side. Una urgently needs an extended Banner Module.
Banner Block Limit. Possibility to Limit the amount of ACTIVE Banners per single Block by admin.
Pipeline per Block. If the set amount of active Banners in a block is reached, newly added Banners go to this pipeline. Banners get some kind of pipeline-rank, visible for the user. Banners in Pipeline replace free Bannerspace according to its rank in the pipeline.
Banner Express Button (charged extra) to override the Pipeline Rank. Interesting for users with urgent needs.
List/table of Blocks showing the Banner Block, the amount of active Banners and the amount of Banners waiting in the pipeline. Can be set visible for users.
Multiselect Blocks in add banner menue. Right now only one block can be selected (or all, actually not working)
Free AND paid Banners. Atm only free OR paid banner mode is possible. Change to Free AND paid banners. Possible settings could be:
Set by single block
Show paid banners xy times as often than free ones
Show free banners only, when no paid banners are active.
Rank free banners BEHIND paid ones, pipeline version as decribed above.
Free AND Paid BLOCKS according to free AND paid banners. Admin sets up the amount of allowed free banners by block.
Banner Approval by admin/mod. Atm all banners are published immediatly. Change settings to ''needs approval''. Notify admin and admin/mod has to approve
LIMIT duration of FREE Banners. Possibility to limit Free banners, clicks, views and day limit. Set by admin for each single block.
Tested with events module. After deleting the events mod and reinstallation of it, the ''old'' banner blocks created for the event module pages in studio/banner/prices were not deleted together with the uninstallation of the event module.
New banner blocks on same pages in studio/banner/blocks are denied with message ''block allready exists''
''Old Banners'' of these banner blocks are homeless and still listed in banner administration, they would need some kind of relocation button.
Creating of similar types in studio/banner/types is not possible, message ''type allready exist''
Thank you for the report. I'll fix the issue with approval banners counter in Dashboard -> Manage block in the next update. By the way admins/moderators should receive notifications via email about all new approval banners. It should force them to check new banners faster.
P.S. You are welcome and thank you for your support and ideas!
Enabling JS Cache Banner mod does not work. tested FireFox and chrome again --> no calendar popup, no reaction on preview button, no textfield to enter text +++ the same results as I posted this problem some days before
As we also have discussed the problem with JS Cache and my bookmarks module, we need some kind of ''interim'' solution, that means ''JS cache disabled'' in studio/settings/cache and after that a real bugfixing, no matter WHAT the source of this BUG is. The modules or the corefiles... only You know :)
May be You should describe the problems with ''JS Cache enabled'' on the module pages of banners and bookmarks. So everybody saves time ;)
NEXT PROBLEM: Free Banner for users is a great feature! But right now, users are able to add FreeBanners unlimited in duration or number of impressions /clicks. A desaster on a productive site! Imagine dozens of banners set to hundreds of days or thenthousands of clicks/impressions....
To limit the amount of banners per user can be easily set in the permissions (I have set 1 banner every 720 hours=30 days)
--> How To limit the duration in days or number of clicks/impressions as ''preset value'' when a user creates a free banner? We need something in studio/banners/setting like: If Free Banners enabled, then set duration to xy days, or amount xy of clicks/impressions
Main idea of the app is selling ads places to site members. In this case "Free mode" was added mainly for testing purpose. It's needed for site owner to pre configure the app: activate necessary placeholders, check how banners will appear and so on. Therefore there is no extended settings for this mode. But I'll think your suggestion and may be include in the next version.
P.S. Thank you for your suggestions and bug reports!
