Unwanted duplicate ads!

Post by westlake » Thu May 28, 2015 10:10 pm

I am setting up multiple button size ads in a side column and I am having trouble with duplicate ads appearing on a page.

In this example, there should be ads for 2 clients, but there are 3 ads, with one client placed twice

In this example, there should be 1 ad from 1 client, not 3 from the client!

In all cases, the content restrictions are set to restrict by ID, with specific pages selected

As a side issue which may be related, I have twice installed the latest version of Flexbanner, but I still get this message:
Installed version 4.0.0
Latest version 4.0.23

All insight and help much appreciated!!

PS My screen shot attachments just disappear!

I'm sorry, I really don't know how that could happen (unless you have duplicate banners). Could I have access to the back end of your site so I could take a look please? You can email me details.

I would try downloading and manually installing version 4.0.23 to ensure you have a proerly updated inastallation.

Thanks

I just added 2 additional ads from different clients. Instead of the new ads appearing, I get even more repeats of one ad, and the two new ones don't appear

Each ad is set to appear on position-7, the left hand column. In module manager I set the order that the ads are to appear in, within the modules in that position.

I'm wondering if the problem is connected to Content Specific Advertising settings?

Modules are set to "Enable content specific advertising" and then appear on all pages for the menu assignment
Component Flexbanners are set to "Content Specific Advertising - Yes", then specific pages or sections are selected
