Announcements or Advertisements
If your board is
set up to display your Mini-Ads, you will have a link in the
Management Panel called "Add/Edit Announcements or Ads".
If you don't have this link, you can skip this section.
Post-A-Board message boards can display what we call "Icon
Mini-Ads" at the top of each board. Icon Mini-Ads consist of an
icon image, a Title, Text, and a URL.
Icon Mini-Ads can
be used to display advertisements or simple announcements. Each can
be linked to a different Web page or Site, and statistics on
Click-thrus are kept for each Icon Mini-Ad.
Below is an
example of an Icon Mini-Ad as it appears at the top of a message board:
