Banner Options configuration allows setting of parameters used globally for all banners.

How to Access

On Banner Manager: Banners, click Options button at top. The Options button is available on Banners, Categories, Clients and Tracks.





  • Purchase Type. (Unlimited/Yearly/Monthly/Weekly/Daily) This is used to indicate how the banner client purchased the display time for the banner
  • Track Impressions. (Yes/No) Whether or not to count how many times a Banner is displayed.
  • Impressions by Search Engines. (Yes/No) Include search engines in the count of impressions.
  • Track Clicks. (Yes/No) Whether or not to count how many times a Banner is clicked.
  • Meta Keyword Prefix. When matching keywords (for matching Banners to Articles based on Keywords), only search for keywords with this prefix. This can improve performance.


This section allows you to set version history options for Banners, Banner Clients, and Banner Categories.

  • Enable Versions. (Yes/No) Whether or not to save version history for this component. If 'No', version history will not be saved for component items or for this component's categories.
  • Maximum Versions. The maximum number of versions to store for an item. If an item is saved and the maximum number of versions has been reached, the oldest version will be deleted automatically.
    If set to '0', then versions will never be deleted automatically. Also, specific versions may be flagged as "Keep Forever" and will not be deleted automatically. Note: Versions may be deleted manually using the 'Delete' button in the Version History screen.
