XOOPS Banner System

Crew,

One of my sites has started up a couple of affiliations which are largely banner driven. However, the banner system in XOOPS is quite antiquated.

I am wondering if anyone has plans to either update functionality or modularize the banner system as currently deployed in XOOPS 2.5.

Thanks!

Re: XOOPS Banner System

there was a separate banner module RW-Banner, but I am not sure if it works in 2.5.0

And there was also this hack

Re: XOOPS Banner System

Neither of those really suit my needs, but it might be trivial to add the following things for an upcoming release, especially with all the work done to make the interface pretty under 2.5:

* Add a description field to the banner. This would allow at a quick glance what the banner is.

* Add expire by date/time. Some promotions are date-dependent and not impression-dependent.

Also, in 2.5 all of the fields except Extra Info are mandatory. Is this truly the case, or can that be reverted to the Client Name only? The other fields are nice, but I don't quite agree with the mandatory flag on them.
