Adding Advertisement Banners to Dolphin

How to add advertising banners to your Dolphin based social community

If you are looking for a good way to earn some extra money from your social community one of the ways of achieving this is to use advertising banners. The great thing about the advertising banners is that the feature is already integrated in the Boonex Dolphin platform and the only thing you will need to do is to find someone who would like to advertise on your website and of course to create a banner.

 

To manage the banners in Dolphin, you will need to:

Step 1 Access the Banners Tool

First you should start by logging into your administration area and navigating to Tools>Banners.

 

Administration-Banners

 

The administration page of the banners feature is separated on two sections. In the first one called Banners you will be able to find the existing banners you have already configured.

If you are accessing the administration page of your banners for first time this section will be empty as you have not configured banners by default.
 

Step 2 Manage your Banners

The second section on the Banners page is called Manage Banners and it is the actual location where the banners are configured. Bellow we will describe all of the options you will need to configure:

 

  • Title – The actual title for your banner, it will now be displayed on your frontend but only in the “Banners” section of this page
  • URL – The URL your Banner will be redirecting to
  • Active – Checkbox indicating if your banner should be active or not
  • Text – The content of your banner. Note that this field supports both simple text and also fully support HTML code which is usually used for displaying your banner image
  • Start Date – Usually this is set to today, however if you would like to display the banner at some future date please simply change that date
  • Expiration Date – The date when the banner will expire and it can be set to inactive
  • Position On The Page – The actual position of the banner on your pages. The options here are quite intuitive and you should be able to easily configure those

 

 

Once you have the configuration finished and the position of the banner selected please use the Submit button at the bottom of the page for saving this banner.

 

 

That’s it! You can now configure and add advertising banners to your Social Community!
