OpenX compatability with popular opensource forum

Saturday, July 26th, 2008

Question:

I am looking for a system that will allow me to serve banner ads on a popular internet forum powered by Invision Power Board (IPB). Please let me know if this software is compatible and how long would be to install.

Answer:

OpenX is compatible with all type of servers and it has number of functionality which will help you to control your banners.

Also, it has high delivery speed. It takes same time what other ad networks take but if you install OpenX in same server then we can use localhost type of invocation code which delivers banners faster than other adnetworks (for this you have to install OpenX in same domain.).

OpenX installation and configuration will not take more than 4 hours and it will not affect your live site.

Question:
How do to create a secured publisher settings?
Answer:
This feature is not exist in openx. We provide you that solution.
This will display an option “Secured Publisher Settings”.
Using this setting, the publisher can get a secured statistics which admin requires.
We need a way to configure the publisher access to statistics more securely and more accurately.

OpenX for Vbulletin board and delivering ads based on user data

Thursday, July 17th, 2008

Question:

You said, that you are a “pro” on customizing OpenX to fit
perfectly to vBulletin.
I’m new to OpenX so i will say the best way is, that i will tell you want
came to my mind and then you say if it’s possible and how long will this take to complete

So, we are a big bulletin board (over 70.000 registererd User) and we want
to target them directly. Right now, we have different user group like
male/female or over18
If we create a new add in OpenX, we want to choose which user(group) we
want to reach (like male, female or both).

Do you think thats possible to create a OpenX Plugin?

Answer:

Yes, this is possible and we can target banners according to user profile (like, sex, age, etc).

We already have mod for that. You can see details about this mod here.

Also, mod’s functionality can be customized according to your requirements.

Multiple user accounts to administrate OpenX

Friday, July 11th, 2008

Question:

As far as I know, there is no way to have multiple users in OpenX. Right now we only have one admin login. Is there a module I can but that simply gives a user access to stats and nothing else?

Answer:

Yes, we can do it. We will make new OpenX instance which will use same database of your OpenX.

In this instance of OpenX, you can create new user (suppose called as salesperson) as you can do in agency and he can see all statistics page only.

Implementation of this functionality will take two days.
