The BannerAdmin menu is also new designed. Now there are three sections:
In the Client Data section you can add or edit the banner name later used for integration.
The Contract Data section has a new Price input field. Here you can input a value for the money you get for the advertisement integration. You can select whether you get payed per view, click or month. Below the Price field you can insert some limitations for showing the ad if there any.
Impressions Purchased defines how many times a banner has to be shown. A zero defines unlimited times.
Start end End Date defines a period of time to show the ad. If there is none the End Date is zero.
With the next option of this section you can define if th banner is active or not. If its not active the banner name does not appear in the editors drop down list.
On the last line of this section shows some basic statistic data. This line only appears if you selected an exiting banner.
In the last section you can define the banner options and where to place it.
An advertisemnt could be a text or an image so first select a media type. After selecting one of these option, another input field appears. If you selected an image put the url to the image in the next input field otherwise put the text you want to show.
Click URL defines the URL where your affiliate partner counts the clicks of the banner. If there isn’t any keep it empty. The clicks for the statistic of your site are counted anyway.

The Expert mode is only for people who want to place a banner somewhere direct into the layout. Using this option you should know how your theme layout is desinged!
If you are not shure to use this option or not. Don’t worry you can play around with this option without destroying anyhing.
