Joomla: Google Ad Manager Plugin and Module
Written by Andreas Berger

The "bretteleben.de Google Ad Manager Plugin" and the "bretteleben.de Google Ad Manager Module", both for Joomla 1.5, allow you to use the Google Ad Manager (now DoubleClick for Publishers) with Joomla. The plugin has to be installed and activated, it does the real work. Besides, it allows you to publish Ads, delivered by DFP (Google Ad Manager) within content items. The module allows to display Ads, delivered by DFP (Google Ad Manager) in module-positions.

 

New in Version 1.1.0:

- support for multiple Publisher-IDs

Google Ad Manager offers the possibility to use multiple Publisher-IDs on a page and doing so show Ads from different Publishers that make use of DFP (Google Ad Manager). If you use DFP (Google Ad Manager) to organize and display Google AdSense, Ads from Affiliate Networks and direct sold Ads, this feature will not be of interest for you.
It is of importance e.g. if you don´t use DFP (Google Ad Manager) yourself but want to show Ads on your pages, you get from different People (or companies) that make use of DFP (Google Ad Manager).
I don´t want to let unmentioned, that this feature is described as a workaround with the potential to create problems by Google (in the DFP/Google Ad Manager support forum).
As it is my goal to reproduce to complete functionality DFP (Google Ad Manager) offers with this extension, I add the feature anyway.
How to use it, is described in the HowTo´s.

Demo

Limitations/Todo

Support for iframe-tagging has to be done.

Compatibility

Plugin and module are tested successful with Joomla 1.5.6 and 1.5.7. Anyway, using them aside with one or another existing plugin/modul/component may bring to light problems i haven't foreseen.
Again I suggest a test run before using it on a live site and stand by for your questions and suggestions.

Hi. We're using Joomla 1.7 and need something that allows us to use Doubleclick for Publishers. Do you have any plans to release a version for Joomla 1.7 and if so, can you provide an estimate when that may be available?

We cannot find any other Joomla 1.7 extension that will work with DoubleClick for Publishers and would happily buy your product if it were updated.

Thanks.

Hi FlipFlopper!

Yes, I already started updating the J!1.5 version to use the new Tags (GPT Tag) and this updated version will be available for Joomla!1.7 too.
An estimate? Within the next three weeks - if everything works out :)

About your offer: There is a PayPal button and donations are welcome but the extension will stay non-commercial.

Best regards
Andreas
