Tile Ad Groups

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.

times newspapersWhen we realized we needed to upgrade our Web site, we knew we could not do it alone. Linear Publishing more than answered the call. All the new features we were looking for were already in place at Linear. In addition, if we came up with a feature not yet available, they created it.

We now publish two Web sites a week in less time than it took us to publish one. The free time has opened me up to explore new ideas and features to use on our site. It's a great feeling when you can get an idea and in no time have it up and running online. Thanks to it's ease of use, our Web site is getting better and better every day.

We are always getting compliments from our readers and advertisers. With help from Linear Publishing, we are becoming the e-voice of the community that we were striving for.
