WebAdverts is a comprehensive system for maintaining a set of rotating banner ads on your site or for setting up a “banner exchange” between your site and others (also called “banner exchange script” or “ad script”). Banners can be displayed on your pages via JavaScript, IFRAME, IMG or SSI tags. (Banners may also easily be included on CGI-generated PERL pages.) Multiple “ad zones” can be established, allowing certain banners to appear only on certain pages. WebAdverts keeps track of exposures and click-thrus (CTR = Click Thru Rate) for each banner, as well as of the average total number of exposures per day. Individual passwords allow each of your advertisers to view their own advert stats (overall and daily) without viewing anyone else’s. Banners can be “weighted” to control how often they are displayed, and can automatically be expired from the rotation after a designated number of exposures, click-thrus or days. Webadverts is freeware, but please link back to us, if you use this product.

Single Files included:
* ads.pl: This is the script you call directly, in order to display banners on your HTML pages.
* ads_display.pl: The script which actually handles the banner displays. It is referenced by the ads.pl script; you don’t need to call it directly.
* ads_admin.pl: The administrative maintenance script. With this script, you can add, edit and delete accounts. It also allows you (and your advertisers) to check on how well your accounts are performing.
* ads_settings.pl: The configuration script containing the majority of the configuration variables used by both the administrative and the display scripts.
* ads_rebuild.pl: This script is called when needed by the administrative script. You don’t need to call it directly or modify it in any way.
* ads_text.pl: This script contains the text passages shown by the administrative script to your advertisers or exchange members. They are separated from the administrative script to make editing or translating easier. Note that this document does *not* include some of the text passages seen only by you, the administrator, and not by your advertisers or exchange members.
* welcome.txt and reject.txt: Example template files for e-mail messages to new exchange members, and to those who you’ve rejected as members.
* ads_history.txt: The complete version history.
