From Joomla! Documentation
This is where you add a new Banner Client or edit an existing one. Note that you need to create at least one Banner Client before you can create a Banner.
How to Access
- Select Components → Banners → Clients in the Administrator menu.
- To create a new Client click the New button in the Toolbar.
- To edit an existing Client click the name in the Client column.
- Name. The name of this client.
- Contact Name. The name of the contact person for this client.
- Contact E-mail. The e-mail address of the banner client.
- 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 Clicks. Whether or not to track the number of times the banner is clicked by web site visitors.
- 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- Unpublished: The item is unpublished.
- Archived: The item has been archived.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 Article.
- In combination with Banner tags, to display specific Banners based on the Article 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 Article and your cat Banner display for a cat-related Article. To do this, you would:
- 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.
