    Default Ad Rotator Component

    Ad Rotator - When I run the following Ad.asp The ads rotate when I refresh<BR>But when I click on them I don&#039t go to the url specified, but it just refreshes the page, usually with a new ad.. When I put the curser over the ad it shows a very long url at the bottom of the browser. It is supposed to take me to the URL specified. What am I doing wrong???<BR><BR>AdSchedule.txt is:<BR><BR>border 2<BR>height 50<BR>width 110<BR>*<BR>imagesanr.gif<BR>http://www.dlrb.com<BR>The Happiness Formula<BR>1<BR>images

    Default RE: Ad Rotator Component

    I think it&#039s because if you use the options above (BORDER, WIDTH, etc.), you need to also specify a REDIRECT file.<BR><BR>See http://www.4guysfromrolla.com/webtech/042999-2.shtml for an example of how to use the Ad Rotator.<BR><BR>So, make some redirect script, and specify it in your AdSched.txt file. So, you might add the line REDIRECT /scripts/adredir.asp at the top of AdSched.txt, and then create an ASP file there which has only the following line:<BR><BR>&#060;% Response.Redirect Request.QueryString("URL") &#037;&#062;<BR><BR>Let me know if that works! Have a great day!
