Idea: Text advertisment module

I would like to make it possible to my advertisers to buy text advertising in the thread list.

The idea goes something like an administration interface where you can ad adverts with an expiry date and specify how many that is showed on every thread-list-page.

I think this would be a nice, non-intrusive way to reach my niche forum users for the advertisers and i would probably be able to pay for the module and donate it to the phorum community if there is any interest in it.

In a perfect world it should also be possible have a page with an "advertisment shop" where they could add their own advertisments. Either prepayed or with visa. But that is in a perfect world..

Kind regards.

That sounds fine, but I see no reason for it to be tied to Phorum. Or, is there something I am missing?

What I mean is that I want to replace every tenth subject-row in the thread-list with an advert, as far as i am concerned it would need to be integrated with Phorum but it might be possible to achieve just by some creative templates?

cheers,

Ok, yes, in that case, it could need to be integrated. That was what I was missing.

Yeah, some PHP code in the templates that counted rows and such may be all you need.

thanks
