View output to verify variables?

Asked by: tdiaz 525 views User Questions

It’s probably not necessary – but.. if I want to view the output from a zone/publisher, and see the values of any variables being passed for confirmation sake.

Is there a way?

I tried to do it this way;

http://myadserver.ads.com/servlet/view/dynamic/html/zone?zid=17&pid=8

..and I got an error that it said to view in the logs, but there was no error log yet for me to look at.

I have a feeling I did it properly, just wanna make sure.

(my placement of &tags)

    Try this link instead:

    If you don’t see anything in the logs, it’s probably because the logging level is set too high. Go to Settings > Expert > Logging and change it to error or warning level. It should show you a message at one of those levels.

    I don’t have any permissions to do any log changes apparently, as nothing under the “expert” says anything other than that.

    I think I have this done right, this is actually generated by our database, based on the same code from Code Wizard, and it looks right to me-

    One thing would be cool, serve an ad code within an ad code- so it could be modified in their site w/o giving them new stuff, but .. can’t have everything, so I wanna make sure it’s absolutely right :) I’ve got them installed on a couple of our pages already with no ill results.

    Are you using AdvertSERVE? We block you out of changing some settings. If you want to send an e-mail to [email]support@renegadeinternet.com[/email] with your accout name/domain I can change it.

    The code all looks correct to me. What made you choose the IFRAME code for one zone and the SCRIPT code for the other? I’m just wondering. Usually the SCRIPT code is the ideal choice because it’s the most flexible.

    Any good CMS will let you manage snippets of code to insert into pages without having to duplicate the snippet in every page or you could put the code into a separate .html file an include it into your pages if you don’t have a CMS.

    Ummm.. IFRAME vs. SCRIPT?

    I didn’t choose it, when I select banner code, HTML and tick the
    [X] Automatic Refresh box, and only that box, NOT the IFRAME option in the next one, I get that code with the IFRAME in it. I didn’t argue with Code Wizard, it knows more than I do… ;-) on the other code I unticked the [X] Automatic Refresh option and the IFRAME went away.

    Ahh, hey, I should have caught that. The automatic refresh only works with IFRAME tags, so that’s one of the cases where you need to use them.
