Okay, so I have zero experience when it comes to coding, but follow directions very well.
So heres the deal... I'm running vBulletin 3.6 interated with PP Classifieds and Photo Gallery. I have several mods installed as well, along wth one commercial style in used to make the site a bit more appealing.
Earlier today, I entered/copied/manipulated code to display a placer image if you will, that has my sites logo, along with the words "your banner here", on my forums home page. On the left side (sidebar) there's a block labeled "Advertisements" so this is where I placed the image. Afterwards, the "ad" displayed perfectly, along with the hyperlink attached. * No other mods, hacks, scripts or various forms of manipulation has occurred after I inserted this code.
Now the issue I'm facing is, once I got home and checked the site, the image has disappeared... completely. I have reviewed the code on the 'forumhome' template, and nothing has change since I first applied it. I have swapped it out with text, and the text displays fine.
My sites address: http://www.reptilejunction.com/forums
This will bring you to the forum home page.
The image that should be displaying is on the left hand side of this forum homepage, under the 'Advertisements' block is (click to view image): http://www.reptilejunction.com/banners/gen_ad_01.gif
So with that said, does anyone here have a clue as to what could have happened? This has really took me by surprise as I mentioned, no other manipulation - on my part anyways - has taken place since the code was was inserted.
