Development Blog This blog will be used as a vehicle to keep interested parties abreast of changes to the Linear system. Using the RSS feed utility, we hope existing and potential clients will become more knowledgeable about our system. Launched September 21, 2005.
June 05, 2012 | 08:18 AM Tile Ads (formerly Tombstone ads) have long been a mainstay of the Linear system. You can define up to 6 sets of Tile ads to be placed throughout the site. Why 6 sets - well, we assumed clients would group their ads by size (i.e. Skyscraper, Small Square, etc.). Each set can be configured for how many ads per page and placement within the page.
Due to popular demand, we have added the ability to divide any of the 6 Tile ad sets into up to 4 groups. Each group can then be independently placed within the right side rails of the site. So, rather than stacking 4 ads atop one another, you could divide them into 2 groups and display the groups side-by-side.
When enabling multiple groups for an ad set, the system will automatically take the total number of ads to be shown and equally divide them among the groups. If the ads to be shown do not divide evenly, extra ads will be assigned to the first group(s).
Tile ad groups are set in your Site Ad defaults. Once you decide to utilize multiple groups, make sure to visit your Rail's standard structure to determine the placement of the additional groups.
We have worked with Greg now for about ten years. I expect we'll continue for another ten. When I need help on one of our sites I pick up the phone and call Greg. He fixes it. It is about that simple.
