Managing your ads for all your Ad Servers
As a Host or Virtual Host you go to the Ad Server Control Panel here: http://www.atozminibillboards.com/hosts
When you purchase an AD Server you will have to get an account created for you at the link above by registering and waiting for approval. Once approved you will have a visual representation of all your systems and ads. If you downloaded the software version and created your own Ad Servers using a personal computer you will still have to get it activated before you can control ads.
Adding your Billboard Ads:
Once logged in, find your own account by looking for your image or name under the smilly faces. The smillies will be there if you have not customized your Ad Album with your own image. You will only have access to change the ads in your own systems but you can see all the others that want to be public.
Once you click on your own album you will see the Ad Servers you own no matter where they are located physically. We suggest you make the thumbnail of each Ad Album represent the location it’s in. Below you will see that each album has an image of the location it’s located in.
Click on the Ad Album to see the ads in that specific location. While at this level you can add new billboard ads, edit the ones there with comments and important information about the subscriptions and delete the ads that have expired.
Functions for Hosts and Virtual Hosts:
Note: NEVER ADD, DELETE or MOVE an Album or you will loose control over that AD Server and it will fail to connect to it’s own ads via the internet.
Add Billboard Ads by clicking the Add Items link on the left.
Click on the Browse button to select your billboard image from your hard drive. The file needs to be 1024 x 615 in pixels only and saved in an RGB JPG format only. Don’t use the “Link” tab for it will not work for AD Servers.
Select an ad file from your Hard Drive that you created earlier using your favorite graphics program. Remember it needs to be 1024 x 615 in pixels (or the size screen your chose in setup of your ad server) and saved as a JPG. Try to keep the size in bytes down to under 100k for best responce.
For the sponsor side of the screen you repeat the same process, but the file must be in “gif” format and 320 x 615 pixels. Animated gifs only work on some systems so it’s not guaranteed.
Once your ad is uploaded you will see a thumbnail version and it will be LIVE on the system that’s connected to that album within 1 hour by default if not changed.
It’s best to play with your demo Ad Album first before you make an ad LIVE. The Demo album can be displayed on your PC at home so you can see what it really looks like for the public before you make it LIVE.
