Ads at top of page
« on: June 30, 2017, 02:27:05 am »
Morning fella's, got a couple of questions for you this morning.

1. The ads kicked in last night at the top of my forum, not that I mind but, the ads are totally pointless, the link they take you to says the items cannot be found so I doubt they are making SMFNew2 much ad revenue.

2. Can SMF mods be added to my forum? I can't see a way of doing it, but just wondered if you guys could?

3 Pro hosting - What happened to it?

4 Last but not least, If (and its a very huge 'if') my forum took off in a big way, which is doubtful as there are too many out there, and say I wanted to transfer to SMF with web hosting, could I take all of my forum with me, as in, is there a way to back up and restore it?

Many thanks.

1. Yeah ads kick in after 30 days. Which link is it an ebay ad?
2. To current system most likely no. I could review a couple a see if they can work but it is manually on my end. Since the mods are added to all forums at one time.
3. When i took over smfnew at the time I did no have a hosting system ready now I do though.
4. A couple options we do have the ultimate plan which unlocks multiple features for your forum. and gives all the smfnew features. I can do hosting as well on SMF but is a different set of features than you would have on smfnew and is mostly self managed.

Thanks for the reply.
Ok the ads are for viglink.com, funnily enough the one I just clicked on my phone worked. But the ones myself and other members clicked on pc seem to come back with 'not found' or similar. So it might be something you want to look at.

What I actually want adding is a mod to allow drop down menu's on the tabs we can add at the top. I did find one over on SMF called 6custombuttons05, just in case you wanted to see if its possible to add on here.

3 & 4 , this will give me a way forward in the future depending on if we ever get more members, and my work situation, having just been made redundant (hence making the forum for the old members) means that I can't commit to any monthly fee's at present. But it definitely is a way forward, maybe with SMF as I like the idea of managing most of it myself, with your hosting. Would there be a way to take all of the posts made on the forum now and transfer them over? I do understand that this would incur a fee.

3,4. I can setup on a yearly or monthly plan for hosting. Just remember the experience on a hosting account is different than smfnew. You won't have some of the addons like like post ratings, the exact same theme. The style manager and some other addons/setup.

The old forum that I used to work on was an SMF one, so I know its slightly different. Its just kind of annyoing on here that theres some things that I can't control, lol. Although a lot of aspects are tons better! I would need to carefully weight things up.

Its like since the ads kicked in, the bad word sensor has kicked in too.... and for some reason I can't find it to alter it. I have a board called VapePorn, which is nothing bad, just images of vape mods, and coils... but now its called Vape**** and looks kind of
ridiculous! lol
*Actually I have found it, and there are no words in there, so not sure why why my board topic is being starred out?
**modified again, the **** if I click on it, takes me to this place http://ceekaysvapeshack.createaforum.com/upgrades.php I'm assuming that the ads really shouldn't be kicking in on my post titles?

Can you let me know if you can add that tabs mod, so I can have drop down tab menus please?
