Get Ad Code – externally?

Asked by: tdiaz 651 views User Questions

I think the answer is mostly yes- is there a way we can get the Ad Code externally?

IE, give a publisher a URL and have them visit it and take the output given, as the ad code needed- instead of them using the Code Wizard?

What we actually did here, we’re using FileMaker to generate the Ad Code as if it were the Code Wizard. It works 100% identically.

The intention was to send the Publishers an Insertion Order as a PDF containing the Ad Code and they would sign the top page and fax us that back, and the PDF would convey in a copy/pastable format, the Code Wizard output.

Works great! … except…. :(

It’s either the PDF or it’s the selection/copy process. But lines are coming with carriage returns.

I failed to test the one last detail.

Actually selecting from the PDF generated.

    The code wizard can’t be used externally. However, it wouldn’t be too difficult to create a PHP page (or similar) that accepts a zid and pid parameter when you link to it. Just make it display the AdvertPRO code in a textarea and insert the zid and pid into the relevant places when you output it. Those ID#’s are the only dynamic part of the code, rest is just static and always the same.
