xF2 Add-on Ads Manager 2 by Siropu 2.0.4

No permission to download
Ads Manager 2 is the new and improved version of Ads Manager 1, designed for XenForo 2. Ads Manager 2 allows you to make money by displaying your own ads or by selling ad spaces on your forum (or both).

There are 7 ad types available:

1. Code
Display HTML/JavaScript ads such as affiliate banners, Amazon product widgets, Adsense, etc.

2. Banners
Display banner ads that you can upload directly or from an external source. You can use multiple images to rotate randomly on each page load.

3. Text
Display text ads with a custom title, description and optionally a banner image.

4. Links
Display link ads with a custom title. You can use it to build link lists in the forum sidebar or display horizontal links in other places.

5. Keywords
Transform text keywords in thread posts, conversation posts (optionally), profile posts (optionally) into links with a tooltip description (optionally). As an admin, you can use it without a link and can also add inline CSS to style the keywords as you want.

6. Sticky Threads
Create/sell sticky threads in the forums you want.

7. Featured Resources
Create/sell featured resources in the categories you want.

There are over 90 default positions and 30+ of those are predefined dynamic positions that allow you to display ads between thread posts, conversation posts, profile posts, media items, resources and more.

With Ads Manager you can:
  1. Display ads individually, grouped or in rotation
  2. Display the same ad(s) on multiple positions at the same time
  3. Rotate multiple ads in any of the 11 available orders
  4. View detailed statistics for each ad
  5. Manage multiple ads at the same time
  6. Display/hide ads after x seconds
  7. Choose who will see the ads, where and when
  8. Automate the ad selling process

Use Position Criteria to display ads based on the thread title, author, tag, prefix and more.
Use Device Criteria to target certain devices based on type and model, platform and browser.
Use Geo Criteria to target/block specific countries.

Has a built-in AdBlock detector with an option to display a backup ad, a message or force users to disable it.

And a lot more.

Screenshots and demo coming soon.

IMPORTANT: This version doesn't support upgrade from Ads Manager 1 yet. If you want to keep the data from Ads Manager 1, do no install. Else, you can uninstall Ads Manager 1 and install this if you want to test it out.

For those who are facing issue installing this as at installation time, it gives an error that Class name Ads is Invalid. Follow the below steps:-

1. Go to src\addons\Siropu\AdsManager\Widget and rename Advertisers file to Ads

2. Now edit the renamed file named ads and change
class Advertisers to class Ads

This error is due to some changes made in beta4 and probably developer forgot to rename the class in installation method, so it will be fixed by next release until then follow the above steps to make it work.

Note:- Firstly Start Installation of Addon and after that quickly make the above changes as if you make the changes before installing xenforo won't let you install the addon as xenforo checks for files before installation and it will state that Advertisers.php is missing.
