Forcing banner behaviour

Is it possible to force banner behavior?

I am running Google adsense ads on my XOOPS site, and they always open in the same browser window, taking users away from my site if clicked.

On the other hand, I have a custom image I am displaying in banner rotation, and when clicked, opens in a new window.

The only difference between the two is that the Google ads are using the 'use HTML' option, where's my custom banner is not.

I would prefer my customer banner to link to a page within my site, and prefer the Google ads to open a new window.

Can this be achieved?

add target="_blank" to the google script after the a href section but b4 the closing >

without seeing the html code for the google banner i can't tell u where to exactly place it..


as for the XOOPS banner i'm not quite sure as any mod would affect other banners..

u could simply tick the use html box and create a little html for your banner

ie. <a href="http://your domain.com/<path to page you want>/"><img src="<path to your banner image>" width="468" height="60" border="0" /></a>

Your idea for my custom banner linking worked perfectly. Such a simple concept, I'm slapping my forehead for not thinking of that myself. Many thanks for your input.

I am however having troubles having my Google Adsense banners opening a new browser window.

My Original Google code is below... with obvious personal information marked with 'x'.

Quote:

<script type="text/javascript"><!--
google_ad_client = "pub-XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX";
google_ad_width = 468;
google_ad_height = 60;
google_ad_format = "468x60_as";
google_ad_channel ="XXXXXXXX";
google_color_border = "336699";
google_color_bg = "FFFFFF";
google_color_link = "0000FF";
google_color_url = "008000";
google_color_text = "000000";
//--></script>
<script type="text/javascript"
src="http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js">
</script>


and the changes I made as per your suggestion are here...

Quote:


<script type="text/javascript"><!--
google_ad_client = "pub-XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX";
google_ad_width = 468;
google_ad_height = 60;
google_ad_format = "468x60_as";
google_ad_channel ="XXXXXXXX";
google_color_border = "336699";
google_color_bg = "FFFFFF";
google_color_link = "0000FF";
google_color_url = "008000";
google_color_text = "000000";
//--></script>
<script type="text/javascript"
src="http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js" target="_blank">
</script>



I understand the concept of using the _blank target command, though in this instance, Google seems to be forcing the banners to display in the same browser window as my XOOPS web site.

Any help offered is much appreciated.

I've toyed with this some more, and it seems I still cannot force the Google ads to open a new browser window. I've contacted Google and am still awaiting their reply.

Has anyone out there acheived this?

Google have advised me that modifying the banner code is a breach of their TOS.

Seems we're stuck with Google Adsense ads opening in the same window whether we like it or not

i haven't tried this, so i dunno if it will work, but being as it is using javascript it may do the job..

<script type="text/javascript"><!--
google_ad_client = "pub-XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX";
google_ad_width = 468;
google_ad_height = 60;
google_ad_format = "468x60_as";
google_ad_channel ="XXXXXXXX";
google_color_border = "336699";
google_color_bg = "FFFFFF";
google_color_link = "0000FF";
google_color_url = "008000";
google_color_text = "000000";
//--></script>
<script type="text/javascript"
src="http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js" target="_blank">
</script>


replace

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js" target="_blank">
</script>

with

<script type="text/javascript" onClick="window.open('http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js','mywindow','toolbar=yes,
location=yes,directories=yes,status=yes,menubar=yes,scrollbars=yes,copyhistory=yes,
resizable=yes')">
</script>

but i think this method is used in a form function with a button.. so it may need altering slightly
