Get a quick overview of the ads created. You can easily create banner ads from within wp-admin, and if you have Community Events add-on for Calendarize it! you can also allow users to submit banners ads. Please notice that the Events Map View add-on is required in order to display the banner ads.

In the Calendarize it! Options panel you can enable the Taxonomies that you want to use to trigger the ads. By default the ad is only going to be an image, but you can change this setting to allow post content for a more advanced approach.

Calendarize it! - Advertising Options - OverviewAdd the banner image directly from the Media Library or upload your image. In the Media Settings tab under Community Events add-on you will be able to set the Max Upload Size (KB) for the banner image and you can add a label showing the recommended size for the banner in pixels.

Add a link URL to the banner image, which is the destination that the visitor will be taken to when clicking on the banner. The Link URL should be absolute (the full URL). Set the link target to either Same tab/window or New tab/window.

Select when you want the banner ad to go live and when you want it to expire, simply by clicking the calendar and set the Start and End. You can set it to All day or set a specific Start time and End time.

Calendarize it! - Advertising Options - Add new ad
A banner ad is triggered when a visitor click on and select one of the Taxonomies that you have assigned to the banner ad. You must at least assign one of the Taxonomies to the banner ad otherwise it will not get triggered.

The default Taxonomies in Calendarize it! is: Calendars, Organizers and Venues. However if you have the Capabilities and Taxonomies add-on you can create custom Taxonomies, which can also be used as filters in the Events Map View.

The image below shows the banner ad being triggered when the user selects the Taxonomy Florida (FL). If the visitor click the CLOSE button, the next ad will trigger according to the delay set. If the visitor click Don’t show this ad again button the specific ad will not be displayed again, and if there is another ad in the queue it will be triggered.
