New Feature! Now allows the display of multiple banners in each module.
Single installer for component and module.
FlexBanner is a powerful banner advert management system. You can add banners for new clients or links from one screen - no more multi-step banner adding. You can also restrict banners to particular articles, categories or sections, as well as all the default Joomla restrictions (using the itemid system). It also works well with Google AdSense code - copy the Google code into the custom code box, and it just works.
Supports different banners for different languages! Perfect for use with Joom!fish.

Please note that there is no upgrade path from version 1 to Version 2,If you want to move from FlexBanner 1.6 to FlexBanner 2, you will need to add all your banners again.
Perhaps your guess was wrong! There are hundreds of people happily using FlexBanner and nobody has ever complained of an issue of this kind. As long as you downloaded it from joomlacode.org via this site I'm sure there isn't a problem.
In future you might want to try contacting the developer of a component before throwing around accusations like this. You'd have seen we have a busy support forum that gives users advice and support.
I'm sorry if you are having problems but please don't jump to conclusions.
Filtration of IPs/User Agents via PHP? No
Try and it let me know what your client thinks.
Obviously the clicks are off, you'd think the impressions would be a little more accurate.
Impressions are tallied immediately upon execution of script rather than when a banner has completed downloading.
So even if the banner itself was never displayed on the user's browser, the module itself will tally another impression.
Hi Eric. Sorry you didn't like it. Perhaps you should try the latest version.
That may be nice but it isn't what this module is. It makes no claim to work with other banner modules and I think it is a little harsh to criticize it for something it doesn't claim to do.
It would be great if the component allowed you to view all the banners a particular client has and clicks and impressions - like a report for each client.
Thanks for the positive feedback. I see this as my way of paying back Joomla! and the community for their efforts.
Thus I think that this component is missing some of the grate stuff such as:
Show banners based on banner id
show 1 or 2 3 4... banners
show banners horizontally or vertically
Any way good effort!
I think you are confusing different ways of working with different functionality. You can achieve much of what you want with FlexBanner.
I'll, take a look at Artbanner and see if there is anything we can use here.
Thanks for your comments.
All fair points. I'm working on these issues. I inherited this project when I updated the 1.0 version and it has needed a lot of work just to get where we are. The banner upload issue is a legacy of starting from the core Joomla banner manager which works that way!
I do want to improve the ID selection in the module as soon as possible because it causes users a lot of grief. I've also had other requests to improve the content filtering to use components and other useful selections which I will be looking at shortly.
Thank you for the feedback. All these improvements will follow when paying work doesn't get in the way too much!
Also there's already banner size presets which make it even easier to use.
make another documentation with pictures in it for beginner user on next updates.
Thanks to the development team for making this excellent extension free.
I don't understand why you think it doesn't randomize? It is certainly coded to and it does on my site.
the only disadvantage is that the author did not add multi-language for it. Hope he will add a /language folder soon.
Language folder now added.
Great job! Really like it. Simple interface, very smooth.
I've been waiting for a banner com/mod that can cycle through all banners in a banner category and was hoping this was it (like a Simple Image Rotator/Image Slideshow but for banners that keeps the links). Is this something you're considering looking at?
Sorry, that's not really on the radar at present.
