About

I. Release Notes

Current Version: 6.1
Requirements: Ossn >= 6.0, OssnWall >= 6.0, OssnAds >= 3.0
License: GNU General Public License v2

 

II. Purpose and Usage

This component is fetching a random ad from your pool of OssnAds and inserts a minified instance of it inside available newsfeeds (main wall, group wall and profile wall) and on the 'About User' page.

The current logic has been coded to display 1 ad per 10 postings by default.
The admin backend comes with a configurable option to reduce the number of inserted ads (internally by combining the placement with a simple random x 1 / x 0 multiplier).
