Unhappy new advertising.com code

I really like Advertising.com, but so far am a little frustrated with their new code.

First their new banner code excludes you from disabling a pop up console on exit of your page. The only work around I've got so far is to exclude their media rich code, but then my number of clicks drop.

Now I also see that there is a random number attached to every banner code. For me to get correct tabulation of my hits & impressions EVERY banner I put on my site(s) must have this different number in its link code. I've got their banners on hundreds of pages! Probably over 1000... grrrr

From their site...
Please Note: If you place more than one banner on your site, please make sure to change the three instances of "bnum=73927736" to a different 8 digit random number. The random number should be the same for the <SCRIPT>, <A HREF> and the <IMG SRC> lines within a single ad, but it should be different from all other banners on your site. If you hit your browser's Refresh/Reload button, the number will change for you in the code below. This random number is essential for your clicks to be counted correctly.


Am I the only one having troubles?

I still haven't received any information about the new code, and if I click on the "Show Code" button on the stats page, it's still the old code. Anyone else?

Does anyone know if Burst have managed to sell any "cube" or 120x60 button ads yet? Someone mentioned that Adv.com's new code have to be implemented by May 15, so I may have to start looking for alternatives...

nope i am in the same boat for theprequels.net which has adserver code on it for 500 - 800 html pages.

It's a pain I have had to do it by hand for most of the pages and am nearly finsihed...

May 15 is the deadline cause after that old code will not be paying and working.....

I was wondering if this would work with webadverts...

put in the new code starting at 00000001 and then add 10 - 100 copies of the code from 00000001 - 00000100 and let that rotate ?

I am working on a new design anyway to reduce the number of pages to my site anyway...

Not sure where this information is coming from, but we are not shutting down the old code on the 15th, and it will continue to work normally. We would prefer to move most webmasters over soon, but you _can_ still use the old system without incurring any problems.

If you never received information on how to switch to the new coding, please email migrationquestions@advertising.com and let them know. Someone will walk you through getting set up on the new system - and most people are much happier there.

Regarding the new coding.....

You do have to input a different number for each page, but feel free to use a small amount of javascript or perl to generate this random number so you don't have to do it by hand for ever page (just as long as it is the same random number in each of the 3 spots).

Regarding any problems with disabling exit consoles - the coding has a javascript portion which functions as javascript - so html pieces within that javascript tag <> may not function as you are used to with html. If it is a large issue leave the javascript portion out, but be aware that doing so will block any rich media ads, and this may result in a slightly lower click through rate, and possibly less CPM ads. If at all possible use the coding as is with the javascript piece intact for maximum revenue.

As a last note, I don't make it to this forum often, but please keep my email address handy and feel free to email me directly with questions - I work with most of our web publisher oriented programs in some way and can typically point you in the right direction. johnd@advertising.com. Emailing me is a better way of getting a timely response.
