Components Help Screens


This is where you add a new Banner Client or edit an existing one.

How to Access

Navigate to the the Banner Client Manager. To add a new Banner Client, click on the New icon in the toolbar. To edit an existing Banner Client, click on the Client's Name or check the Client's checkbox and press the Edit icon in the toolbar.





  • Contact Name. Enter the name of a user as contact.
  • Contact Email. Enter a valid Contact email.
  • Purchase Type. The purchase type of the banner. This is used to indicate how the banner client purchased the display time for the banner - monthly, yearly, etc...
  • Track Impressions. Record the impressions (views) of the banners on a daily basis.
  • Track Clicks. Record the number of clicks on the banners on a daily basis.
  • Additional Information. Enter any extra information you want to save for this client.
  • Status: Published status of the item. Possible values are:
    • Published: The item is published. This is the only state that will allow regular website users to view this item.
    • Unpublished: The item is unpublished.
    • Archived: The item has been archived.
    • Trashed: The item has been sent to the Trash.
  • Version Note. Optional field to identify this version of the item in the item's Version History window.



  • Meta Keywords: Optional entry for keywords. Must be entered separated by commas (for example, "cats, dogs, pets") and may be entered in upper or lower case. (For example, "CATS" will match "cats" or "Cats"). Keywords can be used in several ways:
    • To help Search Engines and other systems classify the content of the item.
    • In combination with Banner tags, to display specific Banners based on the item content. For example, say you have one Banner with an ad for dog products and another Banner for cat products. You can have your dog Banner display when a User is viewing a dog-related item and your cat Banner display for a cat-related item. To do this, you would:
      • Add the keywords 'dog' and 'cat' to the appropriate item.
      • Add the Tags 'dog' and 'cat' to the appropriate Banners in the Banner Manager New/Edit screen.
      • Set the Banner module Parameter 'Search By Tags' to 'Yes' in the Banner Module Edit screen.
    For articles only, in combination with the Related Articles module, to display Articles that share at least one keyword in common. For example, if the current Article displayed has the keywords "cats, dogs, monkeys", any other Articles with at least one of these keywords will show in the Related Articles module.
  • Use Own Prefix. Whether or not to use the banner's prefix or that of the client. Select No if you want to use the prefix of the banner client.
  • Meta Keyword Prefix: When matching meta keywords, only search for meta keywords with these optional prefixes. This improves performance.


At the top you will see the toolbar:


The functions are:

  • Save. Saves the client and stays in the current screen.
  • Save & Close. Saves the client and closes the current screen.
  • Save & New. Saves the client and keeps the editing screen open and ready to create another client.
  • Save as Copy. Saves your changes to a copy of the current client. Does not affect the current client. This toolbar icon is not shown if you are creating a new client.
  • Versions: Opens the Item Version History window to show any prior versions of this item. This allows you to view older versions of this item and, if desired, restore from an older version. See Version History for more information.
  • Close. Closes the current screen and returns to the previous screen without saving any modifications you may have made.
  • Help. Opens this help screen.
