Okay on my PHBB2 forum I got the option.

On a PHBB3 I got this option


Reduce the number of displays for images advertisments :

Can I ask what is the difference?

Edit

Also is the option only available to the founder?

the 2nd one will only show a small number of Image Add's

as for the 1st one if you have the same settings as me then you can pick who see's the add's on your forum

If you have a newer Forum you will only get the 2nd setting you gave here
Reduce the number of displays for images advertisments :
The tech's have removed all other settings for new forums made in the last year i think it was Wink

Hope this was of more help to you.

Hi,

A quick correction;
Any forum made after I believe September 2010 do NOT have the option to disallow anyone to view the adds. New forums only have the ability to reduce the amount of displayed adds.

If your forum was created after Sept. 2010, You can only reduce the number of adds. Sorry.

I admin on a forum I checked and could not see the disallow for guests and admins I then checked my own forum and signed into my founder account I had the option to disallow ads for staff and only allow members and guests to see them. I then signed onto the account I post on the same forum and checked and I got the other option to only reduce the number of ads.

Therefore I think this is a founder related things.

RD, your extenuating circumstances, your forum's been moved to a forum that allows this, I believe Wink

The script that allowed this isn't possible for new forums. The devs disallowed it. A decisive business move.

Darren1 if they removed it, it must been just a minute ago.

Because on my forum I created today, I have this:
Activate ads : [] All [] Members and guests

Hmm, thats weird. It is back for new forums.
Learned that my secret emails are somehow on FM's service mwii

Thanks for that slg & RD, Ill update my notes.


Derri, it is as where APE has said. I do not believe it is a founder-only option, but check if you want to.
If you don't have it, it's not available to you. Sorry.

Well I logged onto my forums as a founder. Saw the option for staff.
I logged onto my posting admin account. Saw a different option

To me thats weird and sounds like a founder option.
