Insert AuctionAds into Joomla content

So, what you really need is the ability to insert some simple code provided by AuctionAds into content pages of your Joomla site. It is possible that you tried this before and failed. Why? Because default settings of TinyMCE WYSIWYG Editor don’t allow this. To change this you’ll need to open your TinyMCE WYSIWYG Editor mambot in administrator panel (from menu Mambots -> Site Mambots -> TinyMCE WYSIWYG Editor). Change ‘Code Cleanup’ parameter to ‘off’. Verify that ‘Code support’ mambot is also enabled (published). Everything else is really simple. Go to your AuctionAds account and get your code. Prepare your article (any content that you want to publish together with AuctionAds) and enter it into content editor. Press ‘Edit HTML code’ button in editor menu. It is marked as ‘HTML’ icon. New window with html code would be opened. Find place where you want to insert AD code and insert it there with <div></div> tags around it. <Div> tags are required because it makes sense to insert some additional properties to adjust positioning of your ad. Later on this page I’ll show properties that were used to adjust ad position. Press update button. Well, you already completed everything that was required to insert AuctionAd in Joomla content page.
Exact version of style properties in your <div> tag could vary. I used the following format for introduction text:

    <div style="float: left; margin-left: 5px; margin-right: 5px; padding-top: 15px;">
       Place your code from AuctionAds here.

I used small 125x125 button ad to fit into heading of this article.
In general, it is not necessary to know HTML or CSS to do these simple things. However it could be helpful to learn something about styles that could be used.

For the second ad that you can see at this page I used the different style.

    <div style="text-align: center;">
       AuctionAds code here.

You can use different properties to control ad placement.
Some examples are:  float:left; float:right; 
                  text-align:center; text-align:left; text-align:right; text-align:justify;
                  margin: XXpx; (where XX is number) margin-left: XXpx;
                  margin-right: XXpx; margin-top: XXpx; margin-bottom: XXpx;
                  padding: XXpx;  padding-left: XXpx; padding<-right: XXpx;
                  padding-top: XXpx; padding-bottom: XXpx

It is possible to continue this list but I think that it would be enough to start

The purpose of these simple examples was to give an idea how easy you can insert AuctionAds or Google AdSense code in the middle of Joomla content page without any special mambot. If you like an idea of using AuctionAds inside content to monetize your site and increase usability, you should get your own Publisher ID here and start using AuctionAds .

Some other AuctionAds ads that you can see on this page are generated by our AuctionAds module. You can download AuctionAds-eBay Gateway module by Deal-Times here.
