I have a problem with XOOPS Banners.

I have <{$xoops_banner}> included in my theme.html file but even after banner configuration, I can't get the banners to show, but the banner system shows that it is counting the impressions each time the page loads.

Any ideas on what could be the problem?

Thanks in advance.

You have a banner blocker, perhaps?

I had this problem on my site when pulling banners, through javascript, from the advertisers site. Some browsers, including the latest IE, block these by default.

What I did is download the banners locally and use a direct affiliate link on my site. The banners seem to show in most browsers now.

HTH.

Does XOOPS Banners support local addressing?

Example: <{$xoops_url}>/images/banners/1.jpg

I'll try what jdseymour said and see how things go.

Thanks

Yes, there is a field above the HTML code entry text area for direct links.

I have a local address at /images/banners/xoops_banner.gif but still the banner doesn't show, but it does count impressions.

Confusing!!

IE & Firefox. I think it something else rather than browser prevention.

Is it at the site in your profile? I tried a direct link to the image you listed, got a Page Cannot be Found error page.

But it does not appear to be a XOOPS site. Is this for a client?

No my own website isn't a XOOPS site (at least not yet!! ). I'm working on it! I think it might be because of the banners itself.

Will update you when I get some results!
Thanks
