Default GAB on vBAdvanced CMPS

Hello GAB users,

It took me a while to figure out why my GAB system was not functioning under the vBadvanced CMPS portal system. So in order to prevent everyone else from those annoying headaches I taught it would be a good idea to show everyone else how to do this properly.

Ok! lets get started.

vBa CMPS Settings:
1. Point your browser to http://www.your_site.com/forum_dir/admincp_dir/[/url] and login into it
Scroll down to vBa CMPS menu and open it up
2. Click on Default Settings
3. Scroll down to the Options settings and look for Portal Output Global Variables
4. On the field to the right add GAB_ads
5. Scroll down and click save

GAB Settings:
1. Go to GAB Manager » Settings
2. Set the Relative UL path to banners folder( geek/gab/images/ ? - note no leading slash!!!) to the FULL URL I.E http://www.youdomain.com/forum_dir/geek/gab/images/

And guess what?

Yes! Your done.

Oops I guess I lied..
  • "..ensure that each category has adv_index ticked." - Geek
  • Point to your vBadvanced CMPS page and make sure it's showing up
Nooww your done

known issues :
If CMPS is in a different directory than forum directory It directs you to an 404 page.

NJoy!

Updated: It now needs file edit in order to redirect to work..

Geek,

gab_class_core.php:
Invalid File

Why does a gab file need an edit? There shouldnt need to be an edit to that file? Plus I would cringe to see one of my scripts posted ;P

The only way I got gab to redirect correctly under CMPS(outside from forum dir.) to work was by adding a variable to gab_class_core.php:

Under this code:
Code:
$sql=" SELECT ad.id,ad.url, ad.img imgpath,c.track_views, c.track_hits, ad.max_views, ad.width, ad.height, ad.views, ad.template, ad.frequency,
	                                c.template cat_template
	                                FROM " . TABLE_PREFIX . "GAB_ads ad
	                                INNER JOIN " . TABLE_PREFIX . "GAB_cats c ON ad.catid=c.id
	                                WHERE ad.isactive = 1 AND ((ad.startdate<1) or (ad.startdate<" . TIMENOW . ")) and ((ad.enddate<1) or (ad.enddate>" . TIMENOW . "))
	                                $forumsx $adtype
	                                AND c.scripts like '%," . $scriptname . ",%' $limitids ORDER BY RAND() LIMIT $bannercount ";
	                            //echo($sql); exit;
I Added:
Code:
$redirectpg="/forum/";
And Changed:
Code:
$gab_urls.="'./" . $this->settings['redirectpage'] . "?id=$ad[id]&amp;$redirect_url',";
To this:
Code:
$gab_urls.="'$redirectpg" . $this->settings['redirectpage'] . "?id=$ad[id]&amp;$redirect_url',";
These changes were necessary in order to call gab_redirect.php correctly due to the ./ dir you set in the code and users were unable to set where gab_redirect.php resides on the server(full dir).

Makes sense?

Perhaps you can add this as an default?

Thanks

Getting any errors?

Is navbar enabled in vBaCMPS? If not you'll need to add $GAB_ads[x] to you adv_portal main template.
