Inserting the Advanced Banner software into a web page is achieved
by the following 2 simple steps,
Step 1 - Add the APPLET tag to your Web
To add the applet to your web page you need to insert some html
code into your page. To do this open up your web page in your favorite editor and then simply 'Copy & Paste' the
code contained within the text box below into your page.
Highlight, Copy (Ctrl C) and Paste (Ctrl V) this code into your
Now you need to adjust the parameters (the <param> tags
in the this code) to display the banners that you require.
Banners are added with a pair of param tags named "bannerN"
and "linkN" where N represents an integer number. For example if you have 3 banners to display then you
would have the following parameter names,
The "bannerN" parameter specifies the URL of the banner
The "linkN" parameter specifies the URL which you wish
this banner image to link to and also the target frame / window
For example lets suppose you have three banner images located
at the following URL's,
and each of these banners are to link to the following URL's and
be displayed in the current browser window,
your parameters would then be,
<param name="banner1" value="http://www.jpowered.com/banner1.gif">
<param name="link1" value="http://www.jpowered.com,_self">
<param name="banner2" value="http://www.jpowered.com/banner2.gif">
<param name="link2" value="http://www.trafficfile.com,_self">
<param name="banner3" value="http://www.jpowered.com/banner3.gif">
<param name="link3" value="http://www.graph-chart.com,_self">
Width and Height
The width and height parameters are part of the <APPLET> tag and determine the area that the applet will occupy
within your page. You should set these to be the same as your banner image size. The
most common banner size is 468 by 60 and for this you would have,
<applet code="AdvBanner" archive="AdvBanner.jar"
Step 2 - Place Your Web Page and the AdvBanner.jar
file in a directory on your web server.
To complete the set-up simply upload the the following to a directory
on your web server or the hosting service where your web site is hosted.
- Your Web Page
- the AdvBanner.jar file - this contains the functionality
of the Advanced Banner Applet. This file can be found in the Examples directory.
That's It !
