Banner appears on some pages but not others

Post by westlake » Thu Jul 16, 2015 3:03 pm

I hve set up a banner targeting one specific page The problem is, this banner will not appear on the intended page, but it does appear on some other pages. What is it about the pages that the banner won't appear on? Not seeing an error with Flexbaner, I configured the banner set up that the banner should appear on 4 pages. results indicated below:



Banner appears:
http://skateparktour.ca/index.php/ab/ca ... calgary-ab
http://skateparktour.ca/index.php/calga ... calgary-ab

Does not appear!
http://skateparktour.ca/index.php/calga ... calgary-ab
http://skateparktour.ca/index.php/95-ab ... calgary-ab

Any suggestions on what might be stoping the banner from appearing on any specified page?

I'm actually seeing the banner on 3 of the 4 links so something strange is happening. Have you cleared your cache?

The cache was the problem for all but one of the pages, the page I need it to appear on the most. What could possibly keep the ad from appearing on one page, when it appears properly on other pages, all with the same configuration (ad location, size, banner...)?

Well I can see FlexBanner on that page so is it a specific banner you are having problems with?

Incidentally, your email address doesn't seem to work.

Yes, it is the banner for Youth Brigade Snow & Skate at the top of this page

http://skateparktour.ca/index.php/ab/ca ... calgary-ab

I have some challenges with my host right ow so that email is temporarily out of service. I can be reached at admin@skateparktour.ca

Thanks for the help :-)

I can see the banner on that page. Are you saying it shouldn't be there?

The "Youth Brigade" banner that appears on the top of this page
http://skateparktour.ca/index.php/ab/ca ... calgary-ab

Should also appear in the same location on this page:
http://skateparktour.ca/index.php/95-ab ... calgary-ab

Please see attached screen shot of the content restriction setting for the banner. The two pages linked to above at the 3rd and 4t pages in the list. It is confusing that the banner does not show up on page 347-westside, but it does on the others.

(I've attached the screenshot but can't see it so here is the dropbox link to it:

Thanks for your help!

It's to do with how you are calling the article. That link is not a straight link to the page, it's a home page link and the banner is set to not appear on the home page. If you call it the same way as the other page the banner shows (http://skateparktour.ca/index.php/ab/ca ... calgary-ab).

You need to think about how you are addressing the page and where from.

By the way, you don't need to have index.php in the url if you set Joomla up properly.
