    Does anyone of you currently use Linkshare banners? I have several scripts both cgi/perl and ASP to rotate such other banners that have only two targets:
    URL and Image source

    Some Linkshare banners have 3 targets:
    #URL
    #Image source
    #another source (what's this?)

    Please look the code below. How can I add this to my ad rotator scripts. I have check several scripts out there but I can't seem to know where would I add this 3rd source.

    The first image is the actual ad and the second image is your affiliate tracker.

    How long can your URL be in the ad rotator that you are using???

    Thanks Wayne for your reply.

    I'd be using perl by http://www.shavenferret.com/scripts

    In his Admin page, I could not find a affiliate tracker code field. Where should this code to be included?

    You will probably need to have the script customized. Most agencies build the tracking code into either the image URL or the redirect URL.

    Hmmm...I bet that would cost alot. I am not a programmer that is why I am having a hard time figuring this out.

    I have found scripts from haneng.com (ASP driven). Honestly, I am really not sure if this scripts will work for Banner Agency (Linkshare).
    Here is the code:

    <%
    SELECT CASE right(second(now),1)
    CASE "0"%>
    <A HREF="link1"><IMG SRC="banner1.gif" BORDER=0></A>
    <%CASE "1"%>
    <A HREF="link2"><IMG SRC="banner2.gif" BORDER=0></A>
    <%CASE "2"%>
    <A HREF="link3"><IMG SRC="banner3.gif" BORDER=0></A>
    <%CASE "3"%>
    <A HREF="link4"><IMG SRC="banner4.gif" BORDER=0></A>
    <%CASE "4"%>
    <A HREF="link5"><IMG SRC="banner5.gif" BORDER=0></A>
    <%CASE "5"%>
    <A HREF="link6"><IMG SRC="banner6.gif" BORDER=0></A>
    <%CASE "6"%>
    <A HREF="link7"><IMG SRC="banner7.gif" BORDER=0></A>
    <%CASE "7"%>
    <A HREF="link8"><IMG SRC="banner8.gif" BORDER=0></A>
    <%CASE "8"%>
    <A HREF="link9"><IMG SRC="banner9.gif" BORDER=0></A>
    <%CASE "9"%>
    <A HREF="link10"><IMG SRC="banner10.gif" BORDER=0></A>
    <%END SELECT%>


    Do you think this will work?

    example of my banner code:

    <a href="http://click.linksynergy.com/fs-bin/stat?id=g6VXSp0xAl8&offerid=9979.10000015&type=4&subid=0"><IMG alt="Driveway - Up To 100 MB Free Online File Storage" border=0 src="http://corp.driveway.com/banners/linkshare/security-02-125x125.gif"></a><IMG border=0 width=1 height=1 src="http://ad.linksynergy.com/fs-bin/show?id=g6VXSp0xAl8&bids=9979.10000015&type=4&subid=0">


    If there's no way I can do this very simple, then I guess I'd look for independent affiliate partners. But most of the big reputable companies are with these agencies. Oh well....... thanks Wayne.

    You can use some free ad rotation script. I know for sure that you can use html ads (means that you can place exactly the ad code your agency supplied) in AdMentor which is written in ASP and is absolutely free. You can find it at http://www.aspcode.net

    I believe that there are also free perl, php and other scripts with similar functionality. Maybe someone could give you a direction if you can't/don't want to use ASP based stuff.

    You can also check out: http://www.sitepoint.com/forums/Forum2/HTML/000171.html

    I have posted some ad rotation script in there in ASP which is database driven. It can hold anything you want and could easily be modified to hold a third URL if necessary. It doesn't do HTML yet per se but it will handle the code you need. I am planning on adding direct support so that ads can be in a iframe or layer and automatically rotate on a pre-defined interval.

    Thanks for your replies. I got your email w/ attachment, Wayne. I'll look into it this weekend and compare it to AdMentor. I really need to know which one would work best for my upcoming website. I want to use a scripts that will last a little longer coz' I'm impatient of revamping stuff unless it is tremendously necessary.

    Thanks again for both of you guys. I'll inform you Wayne if I'll use your script on either my new website or my future websites. Thanks alot!!!
