Placing Advertisements via Blocks?

Go to solution Solved by teraßyte,

Trying to follow the instructions in the Help Guides, but I must be doing something wrong. I've created an advertisement with this setting:

Could contain: Page, Text, File

The "Internal Advertising" help guide states that the tag necessary would be {advertisement="KEY"}, making it {advertisement="TinkAd1"}. Correct?

The guide then has this to say about inserting Advertisements via Blocks:

In pages or blocks
The tag can be inserted in a page, block or template within the Pages application. Simply insert the tag wherever you want the advertisement to show.

When I go to create a new custom block, though, there are these options:

Could contain: Page, Text, File

I must be doing something wrong, because I've tried all three of those options and inserted the key. Here's the HTML version:

Could contain: Page, Text, File, Webpage

The block option then shows up in the list:

Could contain: Page, Text

I then go out to my Forums and open the editor to add the block. It shows the option here:

Could contain: Page, Text, File, Webpage

I select the TinkAd1, but the block just stays empty:

Could contain: Page, Text, Leisure Activities, Person, Sport, Swimming, Water, Water Sports

Is there another guide to doing this? Sorry for asking so many questions today!

You need to create an HTML block (not Editor; image #2) in order to use IPS template logic, and then add the code in the Content tab/textarea:



As template key (image #3) instead use something like ad_block_tinkad1. Everything else can remain as is.
